POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland have appealed for information following the death of a woman in Co Down.

On Wednesday morning the body of 33-year-old Joanne Thompson, a mother of four, was found at her home on Old Mill Court in Newtownards.

The death is being treated as suspicious.

The PSNI are making two appeals to members of the public about different incidents that happened earlier this week.

“The first is to people who attended a bonfire in the West Winds estate at Dakota Avenue on the Eleventh Night,” said Detective Inspector Chris Wilson.

“We want to hear from anyone who witnessed any disturbance or altercation at the bonfire.”

The second appeal by the PSNI is for anyone who may have noticed activity around Thompson’s home at Old Mill Court at around 9pm the following night, and at 11am on Wednesday 13 July.

DI Wilson said that police were in the process of studying the findings of a post-mortem examination.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Newtownards Police Station on 048 9065 0222.
