Detectives given more time to question Natasha Carruthers murder suspects

By Q Radio News

Detectives investigating the murder of Natasha Carruthers have been granted an additional 36 hours to question two men.

The pair aged 20 and 40 are still in custody.

23 year old Natasha was killed in a crash between Lisnaskea and Derrylin on Saturday night.

Another woman and a man, also aged in their twenties, sustained serious injuries in the incident on the Newbridge Road.

Police said on Wednesday that they're now treating the death as murder. 

Natasha, who was from the Letterbreen area, was the mother of a one-year-old girl.

Her funeral took place on Wednesday at Rossorry Parish Church near Enniskillen.

Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan said: “We continue to appeal to anyone who was in the Newbridge Road area of Derrylin between 11.00pm and 12 midnight on the night of Saturday, 7 October. Did you see the car Natasha was travelling in, a blue Corsa - registration TLZ 8330? Or did you see any other vehicles travelling at speed on the route at around the time of the crash?

“We would also like anyone with dashcam footage that could help the investigation to please get in touch with us. Detectives can be contacted on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1852 07/10/17.”
