The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation has extended its “sincere sympathy” to the family, friends and nursing colleagues of Karen Buckley whose body has been found in Glasgow.
Police Scotland announced yesterday afternoon that a man had been arrested after a body was recovered in the search for Ms Buckley, a qualified nurse who moved to Glasgow in February to study occupational therapy at Glasgow Caledonian University.
Police have confirmed that the body discovered by officers at a farm in the north of Glasgow on Wednesday 15 April is that of Ms Buckley.
A 21-year-old man has been arrested in connection with her death. It is anticipated that he will appear at court today.
She was last seen alive on CCTV footage leaving a nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation said Ms Buckley had been a member of the union while she was a student nurse at University Hospital in Limerick.
Her family and her former colleagues in Limerick are in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time, said the union said in a statement.
