The troubled teenage son of Irish pop star Sinead O’Connor had escaped from suicide surveillance at an Irish hospital the day before his death, the pop star claimed on Twitter.
Shane O’Connor, 17, was found dead outside Dublin on Friday.
“Like, how could a seventeen-year-old traumatized young person, WHO WAS ON SUICIDE GUARD at Tallaght Hospital’s Lynn Ward, have been able to disappear ???” O’Connor wrote Thursday.
“Hospital has, of course, so far refused to take any responsibility. Is something happening to my son on their watch? Trials. “
Police confirmed the boy’s death, reports Sun.
“Following the restoration of a corpse in the Bray area of Wicklow on Friday, January 7, 2022, an appeal for missing persons in respect of Shane O’Connor, 17, has been dismissed,” a spokesman said.
Shane had been missing since Thursday when O’Connor, 55, shared the heartbreaking ordeal of the search to find his son and then his death on Twitter.
“This is a message to my son, Shane. Shane, it’s not funny anymore, all this is disappearing. You’re scaring me. Can you please do the right thing and introduce yourself at a Gardai station. If you’re with Shane , please call the Gardai for his safety “.
“My world would collapse without you. You are my heart. Do not stop it from beating. Please do not hurt yourself. Go to Gardai and let’s get you to the hospital.”
She announced his death on Twitter Friday.
“My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the very light of my life, decided to end his earthly struggle today and is now with God,” she wrote. “May he rest in peace and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Be at peace:”
The teenager had a striking resemblance to his mother, observers observed on social media, which gained international fame due to the 1990 hit song “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
O’Connor has been married four times and has three other children, Jake Reynolds, Roisin Waters and Yeshua Francis Neil Bonadio, according to reports.
She shared custody of Shane with Irish folk singer Donal Lunny, reports The Sun.
