On Friday, a Garda spokesman told the Irish Mirror a body had been found and police were reviewing a missing person report to Shane O’Connor.
The “Nothing Compares 2U” musician shared a string of brief statements on her unverified Twitter account saying that her son “decided to end his mortal struggles” and urge others not to do the same.
“My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, who has been the light of my life, has decided to end his mortal struggle today and is now with God. May he rest in peace and no one will follow his example.. I love you so much. Please rest in peace,” O’Connor tweeted.
Irish authorities first released a missing person statement on Thursday, asking for the public’s help to track down Shane O’Connor. He has been missing since January 6.
“Shane was last seen this morning in the 24 Tallaght area, Dublin,” said a statement on Thursday by Gardai, Ireland’s national police force.
After her son went missing, the Irish singer posted a series of urgent tweets begging her son to turn himself over to the authorities.
When asked for comment, Gardai told CNN that due to data protection regulations, they would not be able to confirm the authenticity of O’Connor’s tweets or Shane O’Connor’s disappearance.
The Irish singer, who has been open about her mental struggles and suicidal thoughts in the past, expressed her gratitude to her son by dedicating the song “Ride Natty Ride” ” by Bob Marley on Twitter.
“This is for my Shaney. The light of my life. The lamp of my soul. My blue-eyed child. You will always be my light. We will always be together. There are no boundaries. No world can separate us,” O’Connor said.
