Police have released the image of a mother and daughter who were found dead in Newry yesterday (Thursday) morning.

The bodies of 37-year-old Giselle Marimon-Herrera and her 15-year-old daughter Allison were discovered at a flat in the Glin Ree Court at 11 am.

The body of a 38-year-old man was also discovered but as of yet is unnamed.

Police are not seeking anyone else in connection with the deaths.

Yesterday Detective Superintendent Jason Murphy said: “At about 11am this morning the police received a call from a concerned member of a family worried they had not been in contact with the family member for a number of days.

“Police officers have responded to the flat at Glin Ree Court in Newry and forced entry into the flat and found inside the bodies of three people.

“At this stage, I do not believe that anybody else is involved in the deaths of those individuals and I am not currently seeking anybody else in connection with their deaths. It is still a very early part of the enquiry and the investigation is ongoing.

“If that position changes we will of course be in touch.

“At this stage, we are treating this as a murder investigation. The exact cause of the death with regards to the three individuals is unclear.
