POLICE IN DERRY have arrested a man in connection with the death of Luna McKinney in Fermanagh earlier this year.

Luna died while on a boat in Lough Erne in April. The family was moored for the night at a popular tourist attraction on Devenish Island.

Detective Inspector David McGrory said that while the death was first thought to be an accident, a man has now been arrested on suspicion of murder.

“Police have carried out a review into the circumstances surrounding the death of 35-year-old Luna McKinney, at Devenish Island, Fermanagh on Thursday, 13 April and as a result have arrested a 41-year-old man on suspicion of murder. He is currently in custody at Omagh where he is helping police with their enquiries.

“I would like to appeal to any witnesses to come forward and also anyone who had contact with Luna McKinney, who lived in Convoy, County Donegal, in the months preceding her death.

“Colleagues in An Garda Siochana are working jointly with PSNI to investigate Luna’s death and anyone with information can contact either the PSNI on 101 ext 40681, confidential Crime Stoppers number on 0800 555 111 or AGS at Letterkenny on 00353 749167100 or the AGS Confidential line on 1800 666 111.”
