Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Authorities in Ireland said Tuesday they have arrested a suspect in the killing of an elementary school teacher, whose body was found about a week ago after she disappeared during a jog.
Police say it appeared that Ashling Murphy left for a jog last Wednesday, but didn't return home.
Her body was found the same day on the banks of a canal near Tullamore in central Ireland. Police say she was strangled.
A funeral mass was also held in Mountbolus on Tuesday for Murphy, 23, who was also a musician. The mass drew hundreds of mourners.
Authorities said they are processing DNA tests and forensic evidence collected from Murphy's body, and hope it will link the suspect to her death.
