Body in vacant house identified

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.
