Body found under house had been dismembered
Monday 01 June 1998
Sylvia Fleming, 17, had been missing from her home in Omagh, Co Tyrone for nearly a month. Detectives were questioning a number of people about the murder.
Part of the girl's body were found on the site of a house under construction on the town's Circular Road. Police moved in with digging equipment after a tip-off.
Sylvia had been working as a care assistant at a nursing home in Omagh when she vanished. She disappeared on 3 April after leaving a friend's home in the town's Strathroy area. She apparently left to visit another friend with pounds 30 in her purse.
Police carried out a series of searches, including local rivers. On Saturday, they dug up the foundations of the house on the Circular Road where parts of the girl's body were recovered.
