Neighbour Arturo Cortes, 45, told The Daily Telegraphhe was shocked to learn about the incident.

“It’s certainly a shock,” he said. “It’s the first time to hear (of something) like this. It’s relaxing here, there’s a lot of old people living around in old houses.”

“A crime scene has been established which will be examined by specialist forensic officers,” a police spokesperson said in a statement.

Emergency services were called to the unit on Bobbin Head Road about 10am on Wednesday after a friend become concerned for the woman’s welfare.

The homicide squad is investigating and a post-mortem examination will be conducted to determine the cause of death.
