Elaine O’Hara of South Dublin, Ireland, spent her life looking for love. Because of her extensive history of mental health issues, Elaine spent many of her years in the St Edmundsbury Hospital, receiving psychiatric treatment for depressive disorder, self-harming behaviors, and three suicide attempts. As a result, she missed the usual social milestones of dances, dating, and boyfriends. In her thirties, she began to meet men online and became involved in masochistic behavior.
Elaine was exceedingly vulnerable to online predators. One of these predators was Graham Dwyer, a married architect with a secret desire not only to bind and hurt women, but to kill them. In August of 2012, Elaine disappeared. Police assumed she had committed suicide by jumping off nearby cliffs. But disturbing texts found on recovered cell phones later revealed that Elaine had been involved with a dangerous man.
Join us at the quiet end for Groomed for Murder. Elaine O’Hara wanted to find a man to love her and have a family of her own, but instead she was tragically lured to her own murder by a cruel, sick man who was living a secret double life.
