Crash in Northern Ireland being treated as a murder investigation

A car crash in Co Fermanagh, Northern Ireland is being treated as a murder investigation.

The accident occurred on the 7th October, where Natasha Carruthers aged 23 died, whilst a woman and a man, also in their twenties, suffered serious injuries.

Miss Carruthers was killed when her car collided with a tree, police believe there to be a second vehicle involved and are appealing for dash cam footage as well as any witnesses to the incident.

“We are appealing to those who were in and around the area on the night of Saturday, October 7 and who may have witnessed any vehicle or vehicles travelling at speed to contact us.”

As of the 12th of October, two men- a 40-year-old and a 20-year-old have been arrested in relation to the case

A 20-year-old woman has also been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice as police investigate the murder of Natasha Carruthers, but has been released pending a report to the public prosecution service.

Canon Ellis, rector of Rossorry Parish Church in Enniskillen, said that as well as family and friends, the parish and wider community would help the family through “this most difficult of times”.

“They received that news from the PSNI in the early hours of Sunday morning and are still in great shock and trying to come to terms with this reality which is every parent’s worst nightmare.”

“Our prayers and thoughts are focussed upon them as they grieve this most dreadful loss of a dear daughter,” he said.
