May Stevens north Belfast Lismoyne Park death 'not suspicious,' say police

Police are no longer treating the death of May Stevens, the 64-year-old found dead in her north Belfast home, as suspicious.

Mrs Stevens and her husband were in their Lismoyne Park home when it was entered between 1.30am and 2am on Sunday.

A number of items were taken along with her red Hyundai i30 car, registration NRZ 3370, which was abandoned by two men at 6.45am in Glenbank Place, Ballysillan.

Police traced the car to Mrs Stevens' home where officers attended and found her dead.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Montgomery from the PSNI's Serious Crime Branch called the death a "sickening incident" and appealed directly to the two men to examine their consciences and hand themselves in.

However, on Tuesday night, police said they were no longer treating her death as suspicious following a post mortem.
