The remains found in a burnt-out car on Wednesday have been confirmed to belong to 17-year old Keane Mulready-Woods.
The discovery was made on Trinity Terrace in Ballybough on Wednesday, in a blue Volvo V40 1.4 diesel, which had been stolen from Sandymount in December.
Gardaí are trying to track the movements of the car since it was stolen on the 15th of December. Its registration was 161-D-48646, which had been changed to 141-MO-1925.
The previous day to the discovery of the burnt-out car, other remains belonging to the victim were found in a sports bag in Coolock on Monday.
At the time Keane was wearing a navy Hugo Boss tracksuit, black Hugo Boss runners (brown sole, black laces), a red/orange Canada Goose jacket and a Gucci baseball cap.
These items of clothing have not been recovered.
Gardaí are appealing for anyone who has information to come forward and assist investigating officers. Incident rooms have been set up at Drogheda, Coolock and Mountjoy Garda Stations.
Anyone who knows something is being encouraged to contact the Garda confidential line on 1800 666 111.
