A preliminary postmortem examination has taken place on the body of the missing woman found in Ranelagh yesterday afternoon. 

The body of Joanne Lee (38) was discovered in a wardrobe at a property on Ranelgah Road after Gardaí had been called to the scene as part of an investigation into a missing person. 

It's understood that a man who was known to Ms Lee was at the property when Gardai arrived and jumped out of a third floor window, receiving serious leg injuries and is now in hospital.

Gardaí are treating the death as suspicious and have appealed for information. They are expected to release more information on the circumstances surrounding her death.

Anyone who may have any information is asked to contact Donnybrook Garda station on 01 666 9200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.

Ms Lee's family had reported her missing earlier in the week, and yesterday evening the deceased's uncle told reporters from The Irish Independent:

"I'm just devastated, the whole family is, just taken apart, [it has] just torn the soul out of us. I just don't know what came out of this at all, why it happened," he said.

"A couple of days (she was missing), we had a feeling something was up, but we couldn't put it together and we were searching everywhere."
