Forensic officers are continuing to scour Ms Hales home.
Neighbours reportedly found the woman inside the home and were confronted by a ‘gruesome’ scene after they heard a commotion.
Officers arrested a naked and disorientated man nearby shortly later.
‘At this point in time we have not identified any link between the victim and the man,’ Detective Senior Sergeant Sean Wright said on Saturday.
The lack of any link could point to a random attack but police say they have no concerns for the wider public.
Forensic investigators are expected to be at the property for the rest of the weekend.
