Michaela McAreavey was the daughter of Mickey Harte, Tyrone’s multiple All Ireland Senior Football Championship-winning Gaelic football manager. McGreevey was born on December 31, 1983, in Ballygawley, Northern Ireland. She was found dead in a hotel room on January 10, 2011, which was 12 days after her wedding in a hotel called LUX Grande Gaube, Mauritius.
McAreavey, who was a teacher at St Patrick Acadamy, was last seen when she and her husband John McAreavey had lunch at their Grand Gaube hotel on January 10, 2011.
She returned to her room at 2:44 p.m. after lunch. Investigators believe she was strangled after being wrestled to the ground in her room. The water was turned on, and she was placed in the bath. Her husband discovered her body not long after. It was Mauritius’ first tourist murder, and Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam extended his condolences to the Harte and McAreavey families.
Three male suspects were arrested for the crime; Avinash Treebhoowoon, Sandeep Moonea, and Raj Theekoy. Mauritius hotel security officer Dassen Narayen was charged with aiding and abetting a crime. They were later acquitted and discharged as they were able to explain the reasons their DNA was found at the crime scene.
According to the doctor who performed the post-mortem on her body, she died as a result of asphyxiation caused by neck compression.
A video which was seen today, Friday, June 3, 2022, depicts a mob of people singing about McAreavey’s murder in an Orange Hall, where she was strangled in her hotel room in Mauritius while on her wedding in 2011.
Two guys who have been identified as Mr.John Bell and Mr.Andrew McDade have apologized for a social media video allegedly showing a group of people singing a song criticizing Michaela McAreavey’s murder in Mauritius. All of Northern Ireland’s major political parties have criticized the video and those who took part in the song.
