‘It’s devastating because it’s such a quiet little area,’ the local said.

‘Every weekend that park is packed full of kids playing and families having barbecues, it’s a lovely spot normally.

‘A council worker comes and opens the gates at sunrise and closes them at sunset, and I believe he found the body.’

The park is popular with local families in the area and it features a newly-renovated playground. 

Detectives from the homicide squad are investigating Ms Cartwright’s death.
