Man arrested in probe over murder of Belfast woman

By Staff Reporter

Police have launched a murder investigation and one man has been arrested after a woman's body was found in west Belfast.

The body was found last Friday at a flat in the Larkspur Rise area, off the Suffolk Road.

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Dickson said: "Detectives from Serious Crime Branch have launched a murder investigation following the discovery of the body of a woman at a flat in the Larkspur Rise area, Belfast on Friday."

A 23 year-old man was arrested yesterday, and was taken into police custody for questioning.

It is understood that suspicions were only aroused after a post mortem had been carried out. Police returned to secure the scene at an apartment block last night, near Woodbourne Police Station.
