UKIP man supports Michaela rant girl

Former newspaper photographer Susanne Morrison has been defended by a local politican after posting vile messages on Facebook about the murder of Michaela McAreavey.

UKIP Newry and Mourne councillor Henry Reilly says Morrison’s now infamous rants about Michaela’s murder were insensitive and shocked him when he first read about them — but he believes she’s been harshly treated for her mistake.

Last week Sunday Life revealed how Ms Morrison, from Rathfriland, posted disgusting messages saying the honeymoon murder — which had broadly united Northern Ireland in grief and sympathy for her husband and family — was a case of “karma”.
