( CNN) Keane Mulready-Woods should have been celebrating his 18 th birthday this week. But the Irish teenager’s life came to an extremity last-place month, in a assassination so brutal in sort that it has drawn similarities with Tv support “Narcos.”

A day after Mulready-Woods is missing on a freezing Sunday evening, parts of the boy’s maimed mas were found in a Puma gym bag in north Dublin, 50 kilometers away, police say. Other body parts were located in a burning car in the capital city. Irish media reports say Mulready-Woods’ limbs were in the bag, and his severed head, sides and hoof in the burning gondola . His torso is believed to still be missing.

The murder make-ups a dark picture of Ireland’s changing underworld, which is increasingly recruiting boys and young men to carry out acts of violence, often to enforce debt fees as the country’s addiction to drugs like cocaine stretches. Years of self-discipline have left Drogheda without suitable social services and opportunities to keep young people off wall street, residents there say.
