EXCLUSIVE: Man wanted in connection with murder in Ireland named as Tyler Jackson
A MAN wanted in connection with a murder in Ireland has been arrested in the Huntingdon area.
"Tiggy" Tyler Jackson, 24, (above) of no fixed address was arrested by Cambridgeshire Police and brought before Westminster Magistrates' Court on November 4 for extradition proceedings to begin.
The Irish national was remanded in custody ahead of his first bail application.
He is wanted in connection with the murder of Conor Quinn, 24, (below) who was stabbed to death during an argument on Bridge Street in Mallow, County Cork, at around 8.30pm on July 12 2018.
He had got out of a car with another man to confront another young man that night when a row broke out.
Mr Quinn was stabbed once in the chest by this man who then fled the scene of the attack.
Mr Quinn’s partner, Stephanie, gave birth to a baby just a few days after the killing and named her son Conor, after Mr Quinn.
A record of the court hearing said he was remanded due to him being likely to abscond, having no community ties or fixed address and the nature and seriousness of the alleged offence.
Jackson denies the offence and is fighting extradition.
He appeared again at the court on November 12, when the case was adjourned until December, with him remaining in custody.
In December 2019, the Irish Gardaí issued an appeal (image above) for the whereabouts of Tyler Jackson (above), saying they were anxious to speak to him, without saying what it was in connection with.
The appeal said he had lived in Ballydaheen, near Mallow, in County Cork, previously, but may have relocated.
