THE devastated mother of two young sons who were found strangled to death in the boot of their dad’s crash car is preparing for their return home.
The remains of Eoghan and Ruairi Chada are expected to be handed over to their grieving mum either on Wednesday or Thursday.
Only after their remains are released can the family then start to make funeral arrangements.
The bodies of ten-year-old Eoghan and five-year-old Ruairi Chada will be transported to from Co Mayo where the autopsies were carried out to the family home in Ballinkillen in Co Carlow.
Post-mortem examination results into the cause of the death have not been released.
However, it is understood the two boys had been strangled and their bodies then dumped in the boot by their father Sanjeev.
The Republic’s deputy state pathologist is conducting blood tests to establish if the boys were drugged before their deaths.
Gardai suspect that after killing the two defenceless boys, their dad may have tried to kill himself by driving headlong into a stone wall in Westport, Co Meath.
The bodies were found outside Westport on Monday in the boot of a car that had been driven by their father, Sanjeev Chada.
The car had been in a crash and Mr Chada was admitted to hospital for treatment.
Gardaí are awaiting permission from medical staff to interview him which Gardai say they hope will be “sooner rather than later.”
