Woman's body found in park at Hunters Hill in Sydney's north

A council worker has found the body of a woman near a playground in a park in Sydney's north.

Police and homicide detectives were called to Buffalo Creek Reserve at Hunters Hill about 7:30am after the body was located in the park.

The ABC understands drag marks of up to 30 metres were seen near the body, however police are yet to determine whether they are connected to the death.

The death is being treated as suspicious.

A crime scene has been established and an investigation is underway, with police looking at the possibility of it being a domestic violence incident.

Detective Superintendent David Waddell said the body was clothed when it was found by the council worker this morning.

He said it was too early to determine how the person died.

"Crime scene investigators only just got on the scene," he said. "It's very early stages."

"We haven't identified who the person is at this stage. But we'll widen our search once the crime scene has been established."

There is a heavy police presence at the park, with a mix of uniformed and plain-clothed officers at the scene.

The park is a popular destination for children and families in the area — particularly on the weekends — with a soccer pitch, bike track and flying fox.  

Hunters Hill is an affluent area of Sydney, and the park backs on to the Lane Cove River which eventually runs into the Parramatta River and Sydney Harbour.

CCTV of woman bound, murdered and her body dumped in a Sydney park

CCTV footage of Nicole Cartwright travelling on a bus before she was murdered and her bound body was dumped in a Sydney park has been released by police.

The 32-year-old’s body was found close to 30m drag marks at Buffalo Hill Creek reserve in Hunters Hill on Sydney’s lower north shore last week.

Police have obtained CCTV of Ms Cartwright — who lived with her parents in far western Sydney before her murder — travelling on a bus between Town Hall and Ashfield on September 28.

Detectives are appealing for public assistance to Ms Cartwright’s movements before her body was dumped early on the morning of October 3.

Police revealed today that Ms Cartwright was found with both hands bound in front of her body.

“At the time she was located she was wearing a dark jacket with a hood and a black and white dress with long black pants underneath,” Homicide squad commander Detective Superintendent Scott Cook said.

“She also had a pair of black boots on and a purple collar. The clothing is consistent with the clothing she had at Muesum Railyway Station and the clothing she had in her possession at the time.

“She was covered in some leaves and bark. We’re not sure when she was placed there.

“We don’t have a cause of death at this stage but she did suffer injuries suffice to say they’re consistent with assault, she was bound, with hands in front of her body.”

Her brother Ben Cartwright posted a tribute to his sister on Facebook today.

“Rest in Peace my little sister! I love you with my all,” he posted.

“It is with very sad and heavy hearts that we announce that our beloved daughter, sister and friend Nicole Cartwright has sadly passed away.

“Details at this stage will not be discussed. Please respect our families wishes by not asking for details and respect our privacy.

“Thank you for all the love and support we have received from family and friends over the last few days.”

After a council worker made the grisly discovery of Ms Cartwright’s body, police were called to the site off Pittwater Road, Hunters Hill.

Ms Cartwright lived with her parents at Lansvale and had a wide circle of friends, often spending time in Sydney’s CBD, Eastern Suburbs, and surrounds.

She did not own a vehicle, but frequently travelled on public transport around the Sydney area.

Police have established Strike Force Winkurra to investigate the circumstances surrounding her death.

One man in the park on the day Ms Cartwright was found, who was en route to visit relatives, told AAP the secluded reserve had long needed better lighting and security cameras.

He said his parents had once encountered a “terrified” girl walking alone late at night and had given her a lift to nearby shops.

“It is dangerous,” he said.

I guess we will have to wait and see but it sounds like a random attack to me!

Sydney, of all places, should have CCTV on every corner like London does.
