The Snapper Point murder victim is not identified yet. The body of an Asian woman, who was stabbed in the neck before her naked body was thrown into a blow-hole at Snapper Point north of Sydney, has not been identified. She was found floating face down inside the blow-hole.
Her body was recovered by emergency services at the popular fishing spot at around 10:30 am on Sunday. Police said that she was 25 to 30 years of age and 170 cm tall. Police believe that her body was in the water for more than 48 hours. They also said that whoever has dumped the body has good knowledge of the area, as stated by The Daily Telegraph.
As there was no sign of clothing in the nearby area, police have come to the conclusion that she was stripped naked before she was dumped near the blowhole.
Yahoo7 reported that the park is locked from 6pm to 5:30 am. Consequently, investigators believe that the person who dumped the body used a degree of stealth while taking her to the conservation area and throwing her into the sea.
Detective Inspector Gary Jubelin is looking for clues. Any relatives or friends of the Snapper Point murder victim or a person who visited the park and noticed something suspicious may be of real help in the investigation.
He said, “It’s a popular spot, a lot of people go there, and with it being a long weekend I just can’t see how she could have been there and no one saw her for any great length of time.”
He added, “Our first priority is to identify the woman and then establish how she ended up in such a lonely place and who is responsible. At this stage, it’s a real mystery.”
In the past eight years, there were 16 deaths recorded in the area between Snapper Point and Frazer Park, as reported by The Sydney Morning Herald. Many of these deaths are of Asian people.
Recently, there were reports of attacks on Asian people in New Zealand.
