The main suspect in the investigation into the abduction of Kevin Lunney has died, RTÉ News has learned.
The man, who was in his 50s, took ill when Derbyshire police searched his home in the UK this morning.
Gardaí and the PSNI believe he was the main organiser behind the kidnapping and extremely violent attack on the Quinn Industrial Holdings executive.
The man has been a target of the police on both sides of the border for years and has more than 50 previous convictions.

“Officials later said the suspect taken into custody died and authorities identified the man on the run as the “white-hat” suspect, referencing photographs released by the FBI Thursday. Authorities warned he should be considered armed and dangerous.”
