Three people have been arrested after a woman was found shot dead and burned inside a tent near a racecourse.
The body of Maddison Parrott, 29, was found inside a tent at the Geelong Showgrounds in Victoria about 2am on Tuesday.
Police believe she was shot dead and then her body was burned.
She was working as a store manager at Platypus Shoes until almost a year ago and was a ‘much-loved’ member of the community, the Geelong Advertiser reported.
Ms Parrott had an ‘acrimonious’ split with her husband according to a source, and another said she had struggled since the break-up.
A man who was also camping at the site said he saw two men setting up the tent which he said was a ‘glamping-style set up’.

Two men and a woman were arrested in Greystanes, Sydney, on Thursday by heavily armed officers from the NSW Police’s tactical unit in relation to the suspected murder of Ms Parrott.
Paramedics treated the three at the scene as they were injured during the arrests.
They were later taken to a police station in Sydney.
A neighbour told 7 News that the arrests were ‘a bit scary’.
‘We got the guns over the fence and stuff like that. They were being pretty serious,’ the neighbour said.
Charges are yet to be laid as authorities seek extradition of the trio to Victoria, a Victoria Police spokesman told Daily Mail Australia.
Former work colleagues of Ms Parrott had been spoken to by Victoria Police

Former work colleagues of Ms Parrott have been spoken to by Victoria Police.
The arrested trio are expected to face court on Friday.
Paul King, who was camping at the same site as Ms Parrott, said he saw two men setting up her tent.
Other campers said it looked like a ‘circus tent with a high peak and low walls’.
