She added, “The light of our lives.. always and forever.”

Tara had shared numerous public appeals during the investigation.

Only days ago she wrote about what a kind and caring person her brother was.

“When he lived abroad he called my mam every single day, she has never gone a day without hearing her first baby’s voice,” she shared.

She praised her brother and described him as a caring person who “wanted to help people in need”.

“He is so kind-hearted and we love him more than anything. I can’t believe we’re waking up to another day without him.

“Even when I’m trying my best looking for him I expect him to just walk by or sit down beside me.”

We are keeping Tara and all of Dean’s loved ones in our thoughts during this devastating time.
