THE brother of Imelda Keenan — who went missing after leaving the apartment she shared with her boyfriend on William Street, in Waterford, on January 3rd, 1994 — has revealed how he visits a plaque as he has no grave to visit.
Gerry Keenan (63), believes she didn’t leave of her own accord and rather met a sinister end. The father-of-six said he is not out for revenge but just wants to end his pain and know where her remains are so he can give her a proper burial.
It comes as Gardai have made a fresh appeal on the cold-case investigation into Imelda’s disappearance. Reports from the time say that on the day she went missing, 22-year-old Imelda, originally from Mountmellick, Co Laois, put on a pair of leopard-skin trousers and a denim jacket and informed her boyfriend that she was going out to collect her dole. She left her rented accommodation, walked past the bridge where her memorial plaque hangs today, and was never seen again.
Speaking to the Irish Sunday Mirror, Gerry said: “I believe there are two or three people in Waterford holding back vital information, who know what may have happened to her.”
