The Northern Territory Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has decided not to press charges in connection with the 2017 disappearance of Paddy Moriarty, citing insufficient evidence. Despite the coroner’s suspicion that criminal offences were involved in Moriarty’s likely death, the evidence does not support any charges at this time.

Paddy Moriarty and his dog vanished from the small town of Larrimah, Northern Territory, in a case that has garnered significant national and international attention. The coroner speculated that Moriarty may have been killed following a feud with his neighbors, but the exact cause of his death remains undetermined.

The DPP’s announcement highlights the ongoing challenges in resolving this mysterious case. While no charges have been filed, the investigation by the Northern Territory Police Force remains active. Authorities continue to seek information, and a reward for leads in the case is still available.

As the investigation proceeds, the community and Moriarty’s loved ones hold out hope for answers and justice in the disappearance of the Larrimah resident.
