A top officer has spoken to media about the gruesome discovery of a man’s body in a wheelie bin.
Detective Chief Inspector Richard Campbell, of the PSNI’s Serious Crime Branch, said Owen Creaney, 40, may have been alive for some time after the assault.
He said; “A post mortem examination is ongoing in relation to Owen’s remains at the minute, at this stage I can say he has been the victim of a very serious and sustained assault that has resulted in his death.”
A 23-year-old woman and 27-year-old man have been arrested.
They were initially taken to Lurgan police station, but have since been moved to the PSNI’s Serious Crime Suite in Antrim.
