Newry tragedy: Appeal for anyone who spoke with mum and daughter on social media to contact police

Officers from a PSNI Major Investigation team have been conducting a murder enquiry, following the discovery of the bodies of three people at Glin Ree Court in Newry.

Speaking to Newry Times, Detective Superintendent Jason Murphy said, “I can now confirm the identities of the two females who were found dead at the address.



“They are Giselle Marimon-Herrera who was 37 and her 15-year-old daughter Allison. The body of a 38-year-old man was also found at the address. I am not able to confirm his identity at this stage.

“My thoughts today are very much with their families and friends who are trying to come to terms with their loss.”

Giselle is from Columbia and she arrived in Northern Ireland around 4 years ago.

Her daughter Allison was born in Spain and has lived in Northern Ireland since 2017 and attended Newry High School.



Detective Superintendent Murphy continued, “My thoughts today are also with the teachers and pupils who knew her. They too are trying to come to terms with Allison’s death.

“I believe that Giselle and Allison were still alive in the early hours of Sunday morning but family members have not been able to contact them since. The exact circumstances of what happened in their home remains the subject of our investigation.

“I would appeal today to anyone who came into direct contact with either Giselle or Allison or communicated with them via text or social media since Friday to contact detectives in Newry.



“We are currently supporting the families of those involved as well as Newry High School. I would ask that they are given the time and space to come to terms with these tragic events.

“Post mortem examinations are currently underway. I do not yet have any preliminary or definitive causes of death, and I do not intend to speculate about that today. I would expect the post mortem results to be available to us in the coming days.

“While our investigation remains at an early stage, there is no evidence at this time that anyone else was involved.

He added, “This is an unspeakable tragedy and anyone with information should contact detectives on 101.”
