Husband of missing Cork woman tells 3News he’s willing to take a lie detector test

The husband of a missing Cork woman has told 3News that he’s willing to take a lie detector test to prove he wasn’t involved in her disappearance.

Cork woman Tina Satchwell (45) has been missing since 20th March 2017. She was reported missing four days later by her husband Richard, who believes she’s still alive.

The couple have been together for 28 years and in the four months since she vanished there has been no reported sighting of her.

3News Southern Correspondent, Paul Byrne, met Richard Satchwell yesterday in a park in Dungarvan where the couple liked to walk.

Mr. Satchwell says this will be his last media interview until his wife returns or he has more information on her whereabouts. He says he has been hounded by the press, has been the subject of social media speculation and wants to put the record straight.

 Mr Sachwell said;
 “One day my wife is going to turn back up or she is going to get in touch with the Gardai, one way or another this will all come out and in time it will all prove I’ve done nothing wrong”
“In every relationship you know your partner, you know what you be talking about and you know what you feel your partner would want you to do in certain circumstances and that’s all I did.
“I went by what I thought my wife would want me to do. Whether people agree with the way I did it, that’s really up to them, they weren’t living it, I was. I know my wife better than anybody, I probably know her better than what I know myself and I did what I genuinely felt was right”
“I think they (media) at this point are beginning to mislead and to some degree, even fabricate stories at this point. I am not going to make any more interviews with anybody”
“I have been with my wife 28 years and in them 28 years I have never ever lifted a finger to her.
“I was brought up in a home where there was no …yes there was arguments between my mother and father obviously, but there was never any violence and that’s what I always intended to and always will for the rest of my life always intended for my wife, a good quiet, loving, marriage and nothing else”
“If I was asked to take a lie detector test I would take one. My house was searched without my knowledge and the Gardai didn’t find anything to suggest anything untoward. I live on a main street, so my comings and goings are seen. So you know, I don’t know why people are being so malicious.”
When Paul asked Richard if he’s innocent, he replied;
“I am, I’m innocent, I’m innocent of any wrongdoing.”
