Mur­der vic­tim’s body lay in bed for two years

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

Po­lice fear a mur­der vic­tim may have lain undis­cov­ered in her bed for more than two years.

Marie Con­lon, 68, was dis­cov­ered in a flat in west Belfast last Fri­day after po­lice of­fi­cers forced down her door.

A 23-year-old man was ar­rested on Wed­nes­day and re­mains in cus­tody.

The last known sight­ing of Ms Con­lon was in Jan­uary 2015.

“It is our be­lief, sup­ported by the med­i­cal ev­i­dence, that her death may have oc­curred at around this time,” Chief Insp Alan Dick­son told the BBC.

Last night her fam­ily said they had made nu­mer­ous at­tempts to con­tact her for two years but at no point were sus­pi­cions raised that she was dead.
