Woman's death suspicious say police

Police are treating the death of a mother of five in east Belfast as suspicious.

Deborah Hunter, 50, who was found dead last Thursday in her home at Finmore Court, off the Newtownards Road, had previously made a complaint of assault to police which was still under investigation at the time of her death.

Detectives in the PSNI's Serious Crime Branch said they are keen to speak to anyone who had spoken to or had seen Mrs Hunter between October 7 and November 6.

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Dickson said: "Deborah Hunter was well known in the lower Newtownards Road area and we are issuing a photo of her which was taken shortly after she had complained to police that she'd been assaulted by a number of people.

"In order for police to be able to determine whether or not her death was suspicious, we need to speak to anyone who saw Deborah or spoke to her between 7 October and 6 November when she was found dead in her home."
