The troubled teenage son of Irish pop star Sinead O’Connor had escaped from suicide watch at an Irish hospital the day before his death, the pop star claimed on Twitter.
Shane O’Connor, 17, was found dead on Friday outside Dublin.
“For example, how has a seventeen-year-old traumatized youth WHO WAS ON SUICIDE WATCH gone missing in Lynn Ward of Tallaght Hospital?” O’Connor wrote on thursday.
“The hospital, of course, so far refuses to take any responsibility. Does something happen to my son while they are on duty? Lawsuits “.
Police confirmed the boy’s death, reports the Sun.
“Following the recovery of a body in the Bray area of Wicklow on Friday, January 7, 2022, a missing person appeal regarding 17-year-old Shane O’Connor has been withdrawn,” a spokesperson said.
Shane had been missing since Thursday, as O’Connor, 55, shared the harrowing experience of the search to find her son and then his death on Twitter.
“This is a message for my son, Shane. Shane, it’s no longer funny that this is all lost. You’re scaring me a lot. Could you do the right thing and show up at a Gardai station? If you’re with Shane, call the Gardai for your safety. “
“My world would collapse without you. You are my heart. Please don’t stop beating. Please don’t hurt yourself. Go to the Gardai and we’ll take you to the hospital. “
