Our colleague Andrew Behan: reports a marriage between Michele Latour and a Patrick P. Folan in the first quarter of 1978 in Islington.

Guardian, 1 July 1999: Workmen found a body at the site of the plaque, under a concrete floor. The police made a possible identification: "Michelle Folan, a 24-year-old Irish woman who went missing 18 years ago.  Mrs Folan, a mother of two, was last seen on October 16, 1981, at the Half Moon pub in Holloway Road, where she was having a drink with her stepfather and husband. She stormed out after a row, leaving her handbag and coat behind." The police asked for information concerning when the concrete floor was laid.

Irish News, 8 December 2001: "An Irish bricklayer living in England who killed his wife 20 years ago and buried her in concrete was yesterday jailed for life. Patrick Folan (46) strangled his then 24-year-old wife Michelle in 1981, and buried her body in concrete under a hospital.  Folan, a Galwayman who lived in North London, had worked on the hospital site where his wife's body was found at the time of her disappearance." "The court heard the couple had a stormy relationship, and that Ms Folan had seen a divorce lawyer just before she was killed."
