A third person has been arrested following the investigation of the murder of 23-year-old woman Natasha Carruthers in Fermanagh.

Police have arrested a 20-year-old woman on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

This follows the arrest of a 20-year-old man in the Maguiresbridge area on Thursday.

A 40-year-old male, also in Maguiresbridge, was arrested on Wednesday night. Both remain in custody.

Police believe a second car was involved in the fatal crash.

Natasha Carruthers’ car was travelling in the direction of Lisnaskea from Derrylin on a straight section of the Newbridge Road when it crashed just as it was climbing to the top of a hill on Saturday night.

The 23-year-old woman, who had a one-year-old daughter, was from the Letterbreen area. Her funeral took place at Rossorry Parish Church near Enniskillen on Wednesday afternoon.

Police said the other two people in the car, a male and a female also in their 20s, were taken to hospital with injuries which are believed to be serious.

Police confirmed on Wednesday night that detectives from Serious Crime Branch had launched a murder investigation following the fatal road traffic collision.

Detective Chief Inspector Eamon Corrigan said: “I would appeal to anyone who was travelling on the Newbridge Road between 11pm and 12 midnight on Saturday October 7 and who may have witnessed any vehicle or vehicles travelling at speed to contact us.

“The deceased was travelling in a blue Corsa, registration number TLZ 8330.”

Police have urged anyone with dashcam footage of the area on the night of the crash to contact them.
