Detectives from the PSNI’s Major Investigation Team have launched a murder enquiry following the death of a 32 year old woman who died in hospital last night following a serious assault at a property in Lisburn on March 22.

Detective Chief Inspector Michelle Shaw, from the MIT, said: “Natasha Melendez, formerly from Venezuela, was subject to a serious assault last month and was being treated in hospital for her injuries. Sadly she has now died and my thoughts today are with her parents and wider family circle.

“A 30 year old man and a 23 year old woman who were arrested in connection with her death have been released pending further investigation.

“I would appeal to anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the Finch Gardens area of Lisburn on March 22 to contact police on 101.”
