A specialist police dog unit from Wales has been called in to assist gardaí in Waterford with their investigation into the murder of 35-year-old Meg Walsh.
Her body was recovered from the River Suir two days ago following a two-week search.
A post mortem examination established that she had received severe injuries.
The dog team has been searching Mrs Walsh's home in Waterford, which has been designated a crime scene.
Gardaí were to launch a fresh appeal for information relating to her murder today.
They say they have received a very good response to their previous appeal for information in the case.
As part of their investigation, gardaí staged a reconstruction last night of Ms Walsh's last known movements in the hope of jogging people's memories.
Officers say the exercise has prompted a good response and that all the information received is being assessed.
