ENNISKILLEN, Co. Fermanagh, Northern Ireland - Detectives have launched a murder investigation following the death of a 59 year old woman atEnniskillen, a town of 14,000 people in Co. Fermanagh in Northern Ireland.

The body of Pauline Kilkenny was foundat her home in the Cornacully Road area of Enniskillen on Tuesday.

A 28-year old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder, suspicion of possession of Cannabis and theft of a motor vehicle and is in police custody.

The victims body was discovered in her home by her sister at around 1pmTuesday 13 November 2018 after concerns had been raised when she didnt turn up at work. Contents of the victims handbag and her car had also been removed from the property. A post-mortem examination has yet to take place but I am treating this as murder," Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell, who is leading the investigation, said Wednesday.

My thoughts go out to the victims family, including her sister who will no doubt have been left traumatised by the discovery of her sisters body and Im appealing to anyone who has information to contact detectives at Serious Crime Branch on 101 quoting reference 573 13/11/18. Alternatively information can be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime, Caldwell said.
