Turkey murders: Friends’ bodies arrive in Dublin

Ed Carty

The bodies of two Northern Ireland women murdered in Turkey have arrived in Dublin.

The funerals of Marion Elizabeth Graham and Kathy Dinsmore, killed while on extended holiday in Kusadasi, will take place separately on Friday.

Several members of the two families were at Dublin Airport to join a garda escort of the women's bodies back to Newry, Co Down.

The two women, both aged 53, were murdered in woods 75 miles north of the holiday resort of Kusadasi last Thursday.

Police are investigating whether they were killed after Ms Graham refused to allow a local waiter, Recep Cetin - known to the family as Alex - marry her 15-year-old daughter Shannon.

She was in Turkey with her mother on extended holiday at the time.
