Po­lice treat­ing Ir­ish mother’s car crash death as mur­der

The Irish Times - - Home News -

A third per­son has been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the death of a woman in a car crash in Co Fer­managh which the Po­lice Ser­vice of North­ern Ire­land is now treat­ing as mur­der.

Natasha Car­ruthers, aged 23 and a mother of a one-year-old baby daugh­ter from Let­ter­breen in Co Fer­managh, died fol­low­ing the crash on the New­bridge Road at Der­rylin, Co Fer­managh, last Satur­day.

Two oth­ers in the car with her were in­jured.

Ini­tially, po­lice thought it was a sin­gle-car crash but after foren­sic checks and speak­ing to the in­jured man and woman in the car they es­tab­lished that a sec­ond ve­hi­cle was in­volved.

A 40-year-old man was ar­rested on Wed­nes­day while yes­ter­day a 20-year-old man was ar­rested in the Maguires­bridge area of Co Fer­managh. A 20-year-old woman was later ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of per­vert­ing the course of jus­tice.

Det Chief Insp Ea­monn Cor­ri­gan urged any­one who may have seen Ms Car­ruthers’s blue Corsa be­tween 11pm and mid­night on Satur­day, who saw any­one speed­ing in the area, or who had dash­cam footage to get in touch with po­lice.
