Ballinagearagh, Ireland – Tributes are flooding in for a relentless autism campaigner who was found dead in her home after being attacked.

Susan Dunne, 56, who shared her home with 19 year old autistic son Patrick, lived in the rural heart of North Kerry, Ireland, where neighbours are shocked with the turn of events.

Her body was discovered in the bedroom by a male neighbour on the morning of Wednesday November 27. She had sustained multiple trauma to the head with a large blunt object such as an axe or a hatchet.

Since 2009, she had been chairperson of Kerry Autism Action, which described her yesterday as a devoted mother and treasured friend. “She campaigned relentlessly to raise awareness of autism, not only in Kerry but all over Ireland,” said Domnick Walsh, of Kerry Autism Action.

A 19 year old man is due to be charged in court at Killarney later today, November 29, Autism Daily Newscast will bring you more details as they become available.
