Limavady mum Aisling Newland found dead in her home

By Donna Deeney

The 37-year-old woman who was found dead in Limavady has been named locally as mother-of-six Aisling Newland.

Police were called to the Edenmore Park home Ms Newland shared with her partner shortly after 7.30pm on Tuesday. The cause of death will be not be known until a post mortem has been carried out, although early indications are that her death was not suspicious.

It is believed Ms Newland's body was discovered by her partner when he returned home.

It is understood she is originally from Co Donegal, but returned to Limavady after living in the Waterside in Derry for a number of years.

A year ago Ms Newland hit the headlines when she appeared in Limavady court after she rang 999 and falsely claimed she had been assaulted, hoping to get the police to give her a lift home.

DUP councillor James McCorkell said: "It is always shocking to the community to hear of a sudden death, but it is a relief that this woman's death does not appear to be suspicious. No matter who this young woman was, she was someone's daughter and a mother and I offer my condolences to her family at this time."
