The body of a woman who was reported missing by her family has been found in a wardrobe in Dublin.
The body of Joanne Lee, 38, was discovered by police at a house in the south of the city at 3.45pm on Thursday.
Officers said her body initially remained “at the scene”, with the area sealed off for a “technical examination”. The state pathologist has been informed.
Ms Lee was reported missing by her family on Tuesday.
Gardai were looking for her as part of a missing person’s inquiry when they made the discovery.
As they arrived at the property on Ranelagh Road in the south of the city, a man in his 30s is said to have sustained serious injuries after falling from a window.
Speaking at the scene on Thursday evening, Ms Lee’s uncle, John Curry, described her as a “lovely, beautiful girl”.
“I’m just devastated,” he added. “The whole family is. Just taken apart – just torn the soul out of us.”
Independent Dublin city councillor Ruairi McGinley said it was “beyond imagination” and “your worst nightmare”.
