A woman’s body has been found by a member of the public in bushland in Sydney’s southwest.
NSW Police were called to bushland near Sandy Point Quarry, off Heathcote Road, in Menai just before 5.15pm (local time) on Wednesday.
The woman is yet to be formally identified, but it is believed she is aged in her 30s.
The woman’s death is being treated as suspicious and Sutherland Shire Police Area Command detectives are being assisted by the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
Investigators have established a crime scene and forensic specialist police are still examining the scene on Thursday.
Police said no other information was available at this time, but Acting Superintendent Steve Patton was planning to address the media at 3pm.
