A man who failed to appear in court after being charged with the murder of his mother 19 years ago has been found dead in Spain after taking his own life, his solicitor has said.   

Sean Flynn, 37, was due to stand trial at the High Court in Livingston accused of murdering Louise Tiffney but he failed to appear.

A warrant for his arrest was issued on Tuesday, a court official confirmed.

Ms Tiffney, 43, disappeared after leaving her home in Dean Path, Edinburgh, in May 2002.

Her remains were found near a stately home in Longniddry, East Lothian, in April 2017.

It is alleged that Flynn murdered his mother and attempted to defeat the ends of justice by putting her body in the boot of a car, driving to a wooded area and disposing of it.

At a previous hearing in January, his lawyer said Flynn denied the charges.

The 38-year-old, whose address was given as Berlin in Germany, did not attend that hearing at the High Court in Glasgow due to coronavirus travel restrictions.

In a statement, his solicitor Aamer Anwar said: ‘I can confirm that this morning we were advised that Sean Flynn, aged 37, who failed to appear for trial for the murder of his mother, Louise Tiffney 19 years ago, was according to the police found dead in Spain, after taking his own life.’

He added: ‘Until recently Mr Flynn had resided in Berlin.

‘Any loss of life is a tragedy, Sean Flynn’s next of kin has been informed and there will be no further comment.’
