True stories of Foreigners killed in Ireland

As Ireland's murder rate has soared, a remarkable number of non-Irish nationals have met brutal deaths. Ali Bracken examines several cases in-depth, including:

  • Swiss student Manuela Riedo. Her killer, Gerald Barry, had a history of sexual violence against women, but was free to roam the streets.
  • Paiche Onyemaechi, a Malawian mother-of-two who was beheaded in a ritual murder. She was working as a prostitute, and her on-the-run husband is the chief suspect.
  • The screwdriver murders of Polish mechanics Pawel Kalite and Mariusz Szwajkos by a teenage killer.
  • Inga-Maria Hauser, a German backpacker raped and killed in County Antrim. Police are hopeful that recent DNA advances could mean her killer's days are numbered.
  • Rwandan Regina O'Connor was brutally murdered by her drug-addict son Moses. Moses was weeks from his 25th birthday when his mother's will stated that he would receive his inheritance if he were drug-free.
  • Belinda Pereira, an Englishwoman working as a prostitute, was murdered by a man who visited her for sex in an unsolved killing that baffled gardai. A fresh look at the murder is now being considered by the Cold Case team.
  • The tragic murder of Indian businessman Sukhdev Singh by his friend Ram Pal, told here for the first time. Before he could stand trial, Pal died in prison of a broken heart.
  • The killing of Farah Swaleh Noor by the 'Scissor Sisters' is infamous, but what about the life and crimes of the Kenyan before his gruesome death?
  • The execution of Latvian Baiba Saulite by a Dublin crime gang on the orders of her imprisoned husband.

Ali Bracken tells the human stories behind the headlines in each tragic case.
