A Scottish man accused of murdering his mother 19 years ago has been found dead in Spain after taking his own life.
A huge search got underway for Sean Flynn, 37, when he failed to turn up to his trial in Livingston on Tuesday, October 19, 2021.
He was accused of killing Louise Tiffney, 43, who disappeared after leaving her home in Dean Path, Edinburgh, in May 2002.
On Friday, October 22, Flynn’s solicitor confirmed he has been found dead, and that the cause of death was suicide.
Flynn was previously cleared of murdering his mother in 2005, when her remains had still not been found.
The case opened up again when her body was discovered near a stately home in Longniddry, East Lothian in April 2017.
Judges decided to set the previous ruling aside after hearing prosecutors’ arguments for a retrial under double jeopardy laws.
