Michaela McAreavey: Family say 'new developments' in murder investigation

The family of Michaela McAreavey who was murdered while on honeymoon have been told of 'new developments' in the investigation.

In a statement released on Tuesday evening, the family said:

"The McAreavey and Harte families have been recently informed about new developments in the investigation into Michaela's murder.

"They will await further information on those developments before making any additional comment."

Michaela (27) daughter of GAA manager Mickey Harte, was found dead in her room at the luxury then Legends Hotel in Mauritius. She had been strangled and left in a bathtub.

Hopes were raised that at least justice would be served when a number of suspects were arrested by police in the following months.

But in July 2012 those hopes lay in tatters when two men charged in connection with the murder were acquitted by a jury after just two hours.
