A 45-YEAR-OLD woman has been arrested as part of the investigation into the murder of Bobby Ryan in Tipperary. His decomposed remains were found in a disused slurry pit in April 2013.

Bobby Ryan, a separated father of two who had worked in a quarry and part-time as a DJ, disappeared in June 2011. Nothing was seen or heard of the missing man until his body was discovered in the slurry pit three years later, on 30 April last year, by a farmer leasing lands at Fawnagowan, outside Tipperary town.

Once his identity was established and an inquest carried out, gardai launched a murder investigation.

The woman arrested today is being held at Tipperary town Garda station.
