THE funeral is to take place later today of murder victim Jennifer Dornan.
The mother-of-three was stabbed to death last Sunday morning before the killer set her house on fire in a bid to cover up forensic clues.
The 30-year-old’s body was found at her home in Hazel View ono the Lagmore estate in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The next day, detectives from the PSNI’s Major Investigation Team revealed that Jennifer had in fact been murdered.
Ms Dornan’s funeral will be held at Christ the Redeemer Church in Lagmore.
Police released a picture of a knife like the one they believe was used to attack her.
The knife is almost 14 inches long and has distinctive orange and white markings.
A 39-year-old man who was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of withholding information about the murder, has been released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.
The officer leading the investigation, Detective Superintendent Kevin Geddes from MIT said: “I can confirm that Jennifer was stabbed during the attack early on Sunday morning.
“We are appealing to anyone who has come across a knife like this since Sunday to contact us.
“We are grateful to the community for the enormous amount of assistance they have provided in the past few days and would ask for their continued support.
“We are following a definite line of enquiry. A 39 year old man remains in custody being questioned about withholding information. Other enquiries are continuing.
“We are particularly interested in the movements and whereabouts of a man seen leaving Jennifer’s home at 4.20am on Sunday.
“We believe he walked from Hazel View, through Lagmore to Poleglass. We believe he was wearing a grey tee-shirt or sweat top and a light coloured bomber jacket.
“At some stage, we believe he got rid of the grey top and light coloured jacket and obtained a red and gold sports jersey.
“We are appealing to anyone who lives on the route between Hazel View and Poleglass and who has knowledge of any of these items of clothing or the knife to contact us.
“I would ask people to ring detectives on the non-emergency number 101 or use the independent charity Crimestoppers number 0800 555 111if you don’t want to provide your details.”
