Mystery Surrounds Body Found On Beach In Sydney’s South
Detectives are still looking for answers after a woman’s body was discovered fully clothed and lying face down in the sand on a beach in Sydney’s south yesterday. They are hopeful that an autopsy will be able to assist their investigation.
The body was discovered at around 5am on Wednesday on North Cronulla Beach by two women who had been exercising.
Detective Chief Inspector Terry O’Neill said that the woman had not yet been identified but he revealed that she had suffered an injury that was not the cause of her death.
Police suspect that the woman’s death was fairly recent but are hoping to find out more information after the autopsy which is scheduled for today.
Detectives are working to identify the woman by cross-checking missing person reports but anyone with information about recently missing persons are being urged to contact authorities.
The woman is described as having long, dark hair and was found wearing a long-sleeved, black woollen turtleneck jumper, maroon coloured pants and black shoes.
Detective Insp O’Neill said that it was possible that the body washed up from elsewhere due to the high tides overnight.
A police helicopter was called in to scour the crime scene from the air in order to find any belongings of evidence in the water. The homicide squad is also assisting the search.
More to come.
