Woman whose death in Co Armagh is being treated as a homicide is named

A woman whose death is being treated as a homicide has been dubbed Natalie McNally.

The man was arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of Mrs McNally in Co Armagh.

Four police units and eight coroners were at the scene in the Silverwood Green area of ​​Lurgan in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The man arrested is in his 30s.

Forensic officers could be seen removing bags of evidence from the semi-detached house in a quiet residential area of ​​Lurgan.

The cause of death has not yet been released and Ms McNally’s family is awaiting information following further police inquiries.

Ms McNally, who was in her early 30s, was described by friends as an ally and activist for the LGBT community in the Co Armagh area.

She was very close to her parents, Noel and Bernadette, and friends say they are “devastated” and struggling to cope with their loss.

A friend described her as “down to earth, intelligent and funny”.

SDLP Council Member Declan McAlinden, who knows the victim’s family, said the local community in Lurgan was shaken by the death of the popular local woman.

“My thoughts are with the family and friends of the young woman who passed away. She came from a well known and well respected family in the wider Lurgan and Craigavon ​​area and I cannot imagine what they are going through at this difficult time.

“I know many of the woman’s family members and my heart goes out to them. I have no doubt that the local community will rally around them as they grapple with what is happening.

“The loss of a young life is devastating by any circumstance, but it’s particularly hard at this time of year when families gather to celebrate the festive season,” he said.

“This is the second tragedy that has struck our community in Thailand in the past few days with the death of Odhran O’Neill and my thoughts are with his loved ones as well.

“I urge everyone to give the police the time and space they need to conduct their investigation into this woman’s death, which is still at an early stage. Anyone who knows anything about what happened should contact the police as soon as possible.”

Mr O’Neill died earlier this week after an incident involving a kayak.

The 22-year-old from Lurgan was last seen kayaking in Bangkok’s Khao Sok National Park on Saturday.

In August 2020, Ms McNally spoke to the Belfast Telegraph about her struggles with type 1 diabetes and campaigned for more resources for people living with the disease.

She publicly appealed to then Health Secretary Robin Swann to make more investments for diabetics after being told she would have to wait up to four years for an insulin pump.

A PSNI spokesman said: “Police are currently at the scene of the suspected death of a woman in the Silverwood Green area of ​​Lurgan.

“A man in his 30s has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

“The requests are ongoing. An update will follow in due course.”
