Woman's death was not suspicious

Police have said they are no longer treating the death of an Enniskillen woman as suspicious.

The body of Rosemary Collins (55) was recovered from Lough Erne at Cherry Island in the early hours of Sunday.

She was last seen on the Cornagrade Road shortly after 8pm on Saturday.

Police first described her death as “unexplained” and that they were treating it as suspicious. Following a post-mortem examination yesterday, however, police said they were no longer treating Ms Collins’ death as suspicious.

They confirmed they would continue their inquiries on behalf of the coroner.

The police are appealing for anyone who may have seen Ms Collins on Saturday night or early Sunday morning to contact them. Phil Flanagan, Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA, said the people of Enniskillen were finding it hard to come to terms with what had happened at the weekend.

He spoke of a “deep sense of shock and sorrow at this tragedy”.

Mr Flanagan said the town was rife with speculation over the cause of Ms Collins’ death, but declined to elaborate any further.
