The police had been informed that McKeon had not been seen in public in a while

The autopsy had shown that the man had been hit in the head and suffocated.

Investogations led the police to believe that the suspect had flown to Morocco before the body of the man had been found.

Six days later, he had been arrested in Casablanza and extradition proceedings had been initiated.

They have now been concluded and the suspect was brought to Malta.

He is expected to be charged in the coming days.
