Commenting on the news that the Police Ombudsman’s office is now investigating the circumstances leading up to Saturday’s tragic accident which left 19-year-old Shannon McQuillan dead and 21-year-old Eoin McFerran injured Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has said:
“The family of Shannon McQuillan are aware that the Police Ombudsman’s office are now investing the circumstances, in particular the involvement of the PSNI, leading up to her tragic death in the early hours of Saturday morning.
“The family are determined that we get all the facts of what happened on the night and I fully support them in this endeavour.
“Obliviously the additional information has compounded an already grief stricken family so I would appeal on their behalf that the press give them the privacy they deserve through this difficult time.”
