Gardaí say the footage is unverified and very distressing for Keane’s family.

Gardaí are appealing to the public NOT to share videos and images that appear to show the murder of Keane Mulready Woods.

“They are distressing to Keane’s family and, if verified, are disrespectful images of the deceased,” Gardaí said in a statement.

The images still remain unverified at this time.

They also said that they “provide false support to the perpetrators of this brutal crime”.

Partial remains of the 17-year-old were found in Coolock, Co. Dublin on Monday.

Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan’s condemned the murder as shocking and depraved, while Labour is calling for a special taskforce to be set up aimed at tackling crime on the northside of Dublin.

Anyone with information as to the origin of such material is asked to contact Gardaí at Drogheda Garda Station on 041 9874200, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111, Crime Stoppers 1800 250 025 or any Garda station.
