JoJo Dullard - Crime scene location.

This is the exact spot where missing 21-year-old Josephine "JoJo" Dullard was last seen alive.

Detectives believe that JoJo's killer picked her up at this location while she was thumbing for a lift.

On November 9th, 1995, JoJo missed the last bus to her hometown in Callan, County Kilkenny. At the time, she was living in Harold's Cross in Dublin.

Following her recent decision to drop out of a beauty therapy course, she was planning on moving back to her hometown to live with her sister.

Despite missing her bus that evening, she was eager to try and get home. As a result, she decided to take the bus to Naas in Kildare.

After reaching Naas, she managed to hitchhike 35km southward to a small village called Moone.

By the time she reached Moone, it was starting to get closer to midnight.

At exactly 23:37 on that fateful Thursday evening, JoJo called her friend from this public phone box outside of the Holy Trinity Church in Moone.

JoJo told her friend that she had missed her bus and that she was currently hitchhiking home. The pair also gossiped about recent events in their lives.

Throughout the course of their conversation, JoJo was holding the door of the phone box open and trying to thumb a lift.

We know this because a number of passing motorists remembered seeing her at the time. Although Moone is a small village, it would have been a busy spot for traffic at the time.

This is because the main road between Dublin and Waterford used to go through the village back in 1995.

At some point during the call, JoJo suddenly stopped speaking and asked her friend to wait a moment.

A car had finally pulled over.

After about a half a minute of silence, she returned to the kiosk and told her friend that someone was offering her a lift.

Without giving any further details, she then abruptly hung up the phone.

This was the last time anyone would hear from JoJo Dullard.

Despite a major search and thousands of interviews, investigators were unable to find any trace of the missing Kilkenny woman.

One eyewitness saw a woman matching her description getting into the backseat of a darkly-colored Toyota Carina.

Unfortunately, this did not help investigators, as the Carina was an extremely popular model during the 1990s. 

In October of 2020, nearly 25 years after she went missing, gardaí officially announced that JoJo's disappearance was being treated as a murder investigation.

Quick facts.

  • The previous public pay phone was removed at some point between May, 2009 and July, 2010. However, this was not the original one that Josephine used. The original white phone box was torn down during the 1990s.
  • The main street in Moone was much busier back in 1995. At the time, the Dublin to Waterford road used to go through the village. It wasn't until December of 2000 that the town was bypassed.
  • On the night that she went missing, Dullard was carrying a rucksack and a black MGP21 Sanyo cassette player.
  • She was about 73 km away from her hometown of Callan when she disappeared. By car, it would have been a 50-minute drive.
  • Notorious rapist Larry Murphy has been identified as a "person of interest" in Dullard's case. In 2001, Murphy kidnapped a woman from Carlow. He then drove to Kilkea in Kildare before raping her and attempting to kill her. Kilkea is roughly 7km away from Moone. Furthermore, Murphy lived 15 km away from Moone at the time, in an area called Woodfield, Baltinglass.
