Gardai are appealing to the public to help them find the handbag of Jastine Valdez.

It's the latest in their investigation into the 24 year old's death, as they aim to try and locate her blue handbag as well as her iPad Mini.

Ms Valdez, who lived in Enniskerry, was abducted and murdered on Saturday, but her body wasn't found until Monday in Rathmichael.

The man suspected of killing her, father-of-two Mark Hennessy, was shot dead by Gardai on Sunday evening in Cherrywood.

An investigation by the Garda watchdog, GSOC, found that Hennessy died after a bullet fired by a Garda ricocheted off his shoulder and entered his chest.

Meanwhile, a gofundme page set up for Jastine's family has now raised over €100,000.

The page was set up on Monday, the day which Jastine's remains were found.
