Irish Jesuit Says, Enough Of The "Psycho-Babble"

Bray killer Shane Clancy had tried to kill himself before his fateful murder-suicide at the weekend. As further details of Clancy’s deranged state emerged today, a leading cleric branded the killings as “pure evil”. Fr Fergus O’Donoghue, a Jesuit priest and friend of victim Sebastian Creane’s family told the Herald that he was sick of the "psycho-babble" tributes that has marked the killer's passing. The Trinity student was buried today in Dalkey as Gardai try to piece together his final moments.
