Police have launched a murder enquiry following the death of former Portstewart businesswoman Margaret Evans.
The 69-year-old’s body was found by the side of her house in the town’s Knockancor Drive around lunchtime on Wednesday.
Also known as Margo, she was well-known in the area having owned the Madame Margo hair salon – continuing to work on a part-time basis following retirement earlier this year.
She was married to John and was the mother of three children.
A 32-year-old man arrested in connection with Mrs Evans’ death is understood to be her son Alun Evans.
Speaking at a press conference last week, Detective Chief Inspector Una Jennings described the investigation as being at a “very early stage”.
She said: “A post mortem is due to take place to determine the cause of death.
