POLICE were investigating the deaths of two people overnight after a woman’s body was found in Midland and human remains discovered in South Guildford.
Both incidents are being investigated by the Major Crime Squad.
Detective Inspector Mark Fyfe said police found a woman’s body in a unit in Cooper Street, Midland, yesterday afternoon.
Det Fyfe said human remains were also found at a property on Nyinda Entrance, South Guildford.
Three people are known to live in the house in South Guildford. A mother, daughter and grandmother.
It is believed the grandmother is missing.
Channel 7 News reported that body parts were found buried in the backyard of the house in Nyinda Entrance and police were seen to remove a dog, a Great Dane, from the premises.
It is not known how long the grandmother has been missing.
The Cooper Street woman lived in the same block of units where there was a deliberately lit fire last month.
Arson Squad detectives attended the fire in a unit separate from where the woman’s body was found in an unrelated incident.
“She was a nice woman,” one neighbour said.
“It’s very sad.”
Det Fyfe said the Midland and Guildford incidents were not believed to be related.
A South Guildford resident said she heard police were at the scene via social media on Wednesday evening.
The house and road were cordoned off with police tape and a police officer has been stationed at the roundabout since yesterday.
