Woman’s Body Found In Freezer Inside Sydney Apartment

The body of a woman, believed to be a Chinese national, has been found inside a freezer in a Sydney unit block.

Emergency services forced their way into a unit at Bobbin Head Raod in Pymble at about 10am on Wednesday, where they found the body of the woman, believed to be aged 36.

NSW Police are treating the woman's death as suspicious.

A police spokesperson said they were called to the home following concerns for the welfare. 10 News First understands the call came from a concerned resident in the building, with neighbours reporting hearing screams on Sunday night.

It is unclear how long the woman had been dead for before her body was found, but it is believed she may have died between 10pm Sunday and 4am Monday.

Her body was found inside a freezer in the unit. Police believe that freezer was only purchased earlier this week.

10 News First understands the woman's husband, also believed to be a Chinese national, left the country and flew to China on Tuesday morning with the couple's two children. Their children, aged four and six, are understood to be Australian nationals.

Police said they are yet to formally identify the woman and a post mortem examination will now be conducted to determine her cause of death.

A crime scene has been established at the unit with homicide detectives now investigating.

Police will give an update at 12pm Thursday.
