Family "Heartbroken" After Woman Found Dead In Belfast

Family

A woman found deceased inside a Belfast home may have laid undiscovered for up to two years, authorities say.

The body of 68-year-old Marie Conlon was discovered at the flat on Larkspur Rise on Friday 06 October.

A murder investigation has been opened and on Wednesday, a 23-year-old man was arrested in the local area.

The 23-year-old man is set to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court on Monday 6 November.

But the man has now been released unconditionally in relation to suspicion of murder while further forensic examinations into how the pensioner died take place.

A local councillor and detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland said on Thursday that she had last been seen in January 2015.

Police had forced entry to her home in Larkspur Rise and discovered her body in her bed.

In a statement this evening, the Conlon family said they were "shocked and heartbroken" to learn of Marie's death.

He is being held on suspicion of multiple offences including murder.

They said: "Marie was very much loved by her family and will be mourned greatly".

In a statement, relatives of the Belfast woman say she was "a very independent person". "The family of Marie Conlon".

"We have been working closely with the PSNI to bring this devastating situation to an end. It was apparent that she had lain undiscovered for some time".

He said: "It's hard enough that Marie's been found dead, but then for the family to be told she may have been murdered". Not only have they lost a sister and aunt, but there may also have been a murder involved.
