The death of Kerrie King, who was originally from Dundee in Scotland, in the Carrickdale Gardens area of the Co Armagh town was reported in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

A 50-year-old man, arrested on Wednesday in connection with the investigation into her death, has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

PSNI Detective Chief Inspector Mark Gibson, from the Major Investigation Team said: “The results of the post mortem have proven inconclusive and our enquiries into the death of this young woman are ongoing."

She said: "My thoughts and prayers are with the family of the woman who has tragically lost her life in the Tandragee Road area of Portadown.

"Police have arrested a man and I understand that they have established a line of inquiry.

"I want to put on record my thanks to the officers who are working with the family in these tragic circumstances."
