The search for Wendy Sleeman, who went missing from the Gold Coast, has been turned tragic after her body was found in a car in Brisbane’s inner north.
Although formal identification has not yet taken place, authorities believe that the body is that of the missing woman.
Her son, 30-year-old Slade Murdok, has been charged with various offences.
The police described the incident as a tragic circumstance, and it provided the family with some closure.
The police would not comment on the injuries sustained by the woman.
The officers who searched the Windsor home where she was staying were led to it after examining electronic devices.
It was a sad day for the family, as they had hoped to find her alive.
The family was devastated by the news about the death of 61-year-old Wendy Sleeman.
Her disappearance had prompted an extensive search operation, which was carried out in areas such as Logan, Gold Coast, and Brisbane.
According to Smith, Sleeman had called the police after returning home from work on Tuesday afternoon. She had noticed that her house had been entered.
Around 30 minutes after the police arrived, she had already disappeared. Murdok appeared in the Brisbane Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, where he applied for his bail.
He was charged with various offences after he was arrested. According to the court, he was on bail for unrelated matters when he was apprehended.
According to prosecutors, the officers found a pool of blood on a bathroom floor, and they also noticed marks on the ground indicating that the victim had been heavily injured.
Sleeman reportedly feared for her own safety, and she believed that Murdok might try to murder her as early as January 23.
The police searched for a hatchback car known as the Honda Jazz, which had no registration plates.
