Howell gassed his wife Lesley and former lover’s husband Trevor Buchanan in 1991.
Now a sensational new book on the affair has revealed Howell’s plans to move to Rathmullan until he lost £353k in a far east gold bullion scam!
Author Deric Henderson, editor of the Press Association in Ireland, said the Howell family were regular visitors to Donegal.
“Howell loved Donegal, especially Inishowen. He surfed all the time at Culdaff and he told friends he wanted a house in Rathmullan,” said Deric.
“He had his eye on a place before he went bust and lost all his money.”
Mr Buchanan’s widow Hazel was jailed for life earlier this year for her role in the murders.
Deric will be signing copies of his book in Easons, Foyleside, Derry at 2pm to 3pm this Saturday.
