‘A crime scene has been established and detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident,’ a NSW Police statement said.

‘No further information is available at this time.’

Shocked neighbours described the woman as ‘friendly and kind’ who  was often seen gardening outside her unit complex.

‘She’s lived here for about 10 to 15 years. She was Croatian. We’d say hi and bye. She was always very friendly,’ Nick Nand told The Daily Telegraph.

‘It’s the first time something like this has happened here — it’s very scary for people.’

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
