"The body is yet to be formally identified but is believed to be that of a woman reported missing from the Fairfield area." A post-mortem examination is now underway to determine the woman's identity and the cause of her death.Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 as inquires continue.
