Police said the woman’s cause of death is unclear and have not confirmed whether a weapon was used.

They said investigators are awaiting post-mortem results, which are expected to be known shortly.

Police have not released a description of anyone they wish to speak to in relation to the death but have urged anyone with information to come forward.

The woman’s family is believed to have lived in the second unit of the shared building.

A neighbour, who spoke under the pretence of anonymity, told the Herald Sun the street is usually peaceful so she was shocked to hear about the death.

‘I got home and there was police tape everywhere, I saw the garage door open and a big light,’ she said.

‘The street is usually really peaceful so this is a surprise.’
