Lyra McKee’s mother has died just weeks before the 1st anniversary of her daughter’s murder. Joan’s heart was broken & it couldn’t be fixed. Two people were effectively killed by one shot that night in Derry. Shame on those who brought death & destruction into this family’s life. pic.twitter.com/c1XQnqEvK1
