Shock At West Belfast Murder

13 April, 2004

Lagan Valley Sinn Féin Representative and Lenadoon resident Cllr. Paul Butler has spoken of his shock and anger at the murder of a West Belfast teenager over the weekend. The 16 year old from Lenadoon was found dumped in a forest on the outskirts of Poleglass.

Cllr. Butler said:

" People in Lenadoon and indeed throughout West Belfast are both shocked and extremely angry at this horrific incident. This young girls family are well known within this community and I am sure that we will now do all in our power to rally around them at this time.

" The family are obviously devastated by this murder and they are going through an absolute nightmare. This young girl went out as thousands of other young people went out to enjoy the Easter break. It is unbelievable that she did not return home.

" I would wish to publicly extend my sympathy and the sympathy of my party to the family at this most difficult of times." ENDS
