"We still need more information, and even if you think your information is vague, or insignificant, please pass it onto us, and we can assess it. Sometimes the biggest breakthroughs come from the smallest piece of information."

Douglas Shire Mayor Julia Leu said in a statement on Wednesday she was horrified by the crime.

"This is a disgusting, horrific and fatal act of violence against a young woman who was enjoying what so many people do on a daily basis-walk along our beautiful beaches."
