The brother of a young woman murdered in Co Armagh has urged those responsible to confess.
Natalie McNally, aged 32, was 15 weeks pregnant when she was stabbed to death in her home in Lurgan on Sunday night. She suffered a violent death after being stabbed a number of times in the Silverwood Green area of Lurgan.
Police released CCTV footage of the suspect yesterday along with details of a £20,000 for anonymous information.
Natalie’s brother, Niall has called on the public to help police put the killer behind bars.
The heartbroken family held a press meeting on Thursday, where Niall, the youngest of Natalie’s three brothers, urged the killer to “do the decent thing and confess”.
” She was the life and soul of our family and we are heartbroken she will not be sitting around the table with us this Christmas Day or any day,” Niall said.
“Nats really was the best sister ever and such a lovely person. She had so many friends and would have done anything for anyone. She had a heart of gold.
“And to add to our unbearable heartache we are devastated that we will never meet Natalie’s baby – we were all looking forward to welcoming the family’s first grandchild and nephew or niece into the world next year.
“Her killer has denied Nats the opportunity of being a mummy. I am appealing on behalf of our family to bring any information to police or Crimestoppers to help them put Nats’ killer behind bars.”
Detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Major Investigation Team investigating the murder of Natalie McNally have released CCTV footage along with details of a reward from the charity Crimestoppers.
Clip two shows the suspect walking out of Silverwood Green, Lurgan on Sunday 18th December at 9.30pm.

Then, at 9.30pm, we see him walking out of Silverwood Green. He appears to be wearing white footwear, possibly trainers.
“My thoughts remain firmly with Natalie’s devoted parents and family, who have suffered terribly. And my appeal is to anyone with information to please come forward.
“I’m keen to highlight a reward of up to £20,000 from Crimestoppers, who are a charity and are independent of the police.
