Natalie McNally was murdered at her home in the Silverwood Green neighborhood of Lurgan on Sunday, December 18. Detectives probing the death of Natalie McNally in Lurgan have arrested a man. Let’s see what happened to Natalie McNally and who is the suspect accused of killing her in detail.

Who is the suspect?

The 32-year-old male was taken to a Musgrave Serious Crime Suite for investigation. Police had previously on Wednesday indicated that 32-year-old Ms. McNally, who was 15 weeks pregnant, may have known her killer. Although the suspect was not yet identified by the police.

Natalie McNally had been stabbed multiple times, according to Det Ch Insp, John Caldwell, and it looked that some of the wounds were caused when she fought back.

She passed on that Sunday night, Mr. Caldwell continued. On Monday night, she was declared dead at her residence in the County Armagh town of Silverwood Green. There were no indications of a break-in, according to Mr. Caldwell.

John Caldwell said in the press conference:

“This fatal attack which happened in her own home has therefore resulted in a double tragedy,” Mr. Caldwell said. “What should have been a happy time in the run-up to Christmas has changed to unimaginable grief and heartache.”

On Tuesday, a 30-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder was released on bond pending further investigation. According to the reports, this man is not the same one who was detained on Wednesday.

What happened to Natalie McNally?

According to the police, “The 32-year-old who was 15 weeks pregnant, died a violent death, having been stabbed a number of times. CCTV footage released shows a man carrying a rucksack arriving in Silverwood Green on Sunday night at 8.22 pm then at 9.30 pm, we see him walking out of Silverwood Green.”

He appears to be wearing white footwear, possibly trainers. My thoughts firmly remain with Natalie’s devoted parents and family who have suffered terribly and my appeal is that anyone with information please come forward.”

McNally’s uncle John McStravick told she was a “gorgeous, kind, generous girl who went the extra mile for her friends and family, but also for pets or any animals”.

“She has come from one of the kindest, most generous, most loving, most caring families that I have ever had the privilege to meet,” he said.

‘Her brother has urged her killer to confess’:

Natalie’s youngest brother Niall said, “I would like to appeal to my sister’s killer to do the decent thing and confess to her murder.

“Nats, as we all called her, was the only girl in our family and we treated her like a princess. She lived and coped with being diabetic from a really early age and as a result, we were so protective of her and treated her like a precious egg.”

“And yet she was a fiercely independent young woman, working in marketing for Translink, and was passionate about her beliefs and loved her animals and music. We were so proud of her many achievements.”

He added that their parents Noel and Bernadette and other brothers Brendan and Declan were “completely devastated.”

“We really can’t believe we will never see her beautiful smile or hear her infectious laugh again. I cannot actually put into words the heartache we are experiencing. She was the life and soul of our family and we are heartbroken she will not be sitting around the table with us this Christmas Day or any day.,” he added.

“Nats really was the best sister ever and such a lovely person. She had so many friends and would have done anything for anyone. She had a heart of gold.”

“And to add to our unbearable heartache we are devastated that we will never meet Natalie’s baby – we were all looking forward to welcoming the family’s first grandchild and nephew or niece into the world next year.

“Her killer has denied Nats the opportunity of being a mummy. I am appealing on behalf of our family to bring any information to police or Crimestoppers to help them put Nats’ killer behind bars.” He wanted to allege to his sister’s killer “to do the decent thing and confess to her murder”.

Detectives are repeating their request for anyone with details to contact them on 101.

Who was Natalie McNally?

Ms. McNally was a member of the marketing team at Translink, a public transportation operator. The company said: “We have been shocked and saddened today by the news of the loss of our colleague and friend Natalie.

“She was a valued member of the Translink marketing team and we would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to her family and friends at this very sad time.”

She was referred to by friends as “one of the best” in social media posts. Tuesday, forensic officers gathered proof at Natalie McNally’s residence.

She was also acquainted with Matthew Beaumont, an Alliance Party candidate who ran in the most recent Northern Ireland Assembly election.

“Natalie was one of the best people I had the honor to know in this country,” he wrote in a public post. “She was one of the first friends I made here and was so helpful and supportive of me moving into politics and helping people.

“I’m absolutely devastated to see this. The world has lost a good egg.”

The Democratic Unionist Party’s Upper Bann MP Carla Lockhart called her “a young woman who had everything to live for.”

Police investigation:

At 2:00 PM Monday (GMT), police were called to the Silverwood Green residence. Before the arrest, Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell stated that Natalie’s murder investigation was still in a “very early stage.”

DCI Caldwell added that the online social media messages that suggested Natalie might be related to a PSNI officer were “not a main line of inquiry.” Anyone with information that could aid the inquiry into her death is encouraged to contact the PSNI.

Detectives are especially interested in hearing from anyone who was in the vicinity on Sunday night. Or anyone who may have Dashcam evidence.

According to Dt Ch Insp John Caldwell, he is seeking information from anyone who may have driven on Sunday between 20:45 and 21:45 along Kiln Road in Lurgan. He pleaded with them to dial Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Crimestoppers has offered a reward of up to £20,000 for anonymous information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the mother-to-be’s murder.
