A local councillor and detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland said on Thursday that she had last been seen in January 2015.

The body of 68-year-old Marie Conlon was found at a flat in west Belfast on 6 October by police responding to reports regarding concerns about her welfare.

"A post-mortem examination was carried out and the results suggest that the death may have been suspicious".

Ch Insp Alan Dickson said a 23-year-old man was arrested in West Belfast on Wednesday and remains in custody.

"We are shocked and heartbroken to learn about the loss of our beloved sister, Marie Conlon", it said.

A 23-year-old man has now been arrested on suspicion of murder.

"Officers forced entry to her home and discovered her deceased in bed".

Asked if they were assisting with the police investigation, a spokesman for the Department for Communities - which is responsible for the benefits, pensions and welfare system - said: "The Department does not comment on ongoing police investigations".

Referring to the last sighting of Conlon, Dickson said: "It is our belief, supported by the medical evidence, that her death may have occurred at around this time".

"He was detained in the west Belfast area yesterday and remains in custody". "It was apparent that she had lain undiscovered for some time".

THE family of a murder victim whose body lay undiscovered for more than TWO years have spoken of their devastation.

"She was a quiet woman, she kept herself to herself".

"There's people coming and going all the time". I just find it tragic, the whole episode.

A local SDLP councillor Brian Heading said that it was tragic that someone like Conlon could fall off the community's radar.

"We don't look out for our neighbours", he said. "We should be looking out for one another".
