Police have identified a woman whose body may have been at a vacant house in south Belfast for more than a year.
The remains were found among rubbish during the clearance of a house in the Village area in April. She was Julieann Watson, 37, whose last known address was in the area.
A post-mortem examination revealed that her body may have been in the vacant property in Donegal Avenue for over a year.
Neighbours noticed a pungent smell and had contacted the authorities.
Contractors were then sent out to clear the house.
