A NUMBER OF detectives from the PSNI are currently in Mauritius to help with the ongoing investigation into the death of Michaela McAreavey.

A spokesperson from the PSNI told TheJournal.ie that three detectives had travelled to the country and that “their work will take a week to complete.”

Michaela, who was the daughter of Tyrone football manager Mickey Harte, was strangled to death in January 2011 while on honeymoon with her husband John McAreavey.

Two hotel workers – Sandip Moneea and Avinash Treebhoowoon – were subsequently charged with her murder, but were acquitted last year.
