Building management was allegedlly prompted to conduct a welfare check two days ago at the residence on Cottrell Street, but police sadly found the woman deceased around 11:40 a.m. this morning.
During this distressing scene, a toddler believed to be the woman’s son, was observed wrapped in a blanket and was taken by the police to an awaiting ambulance. Concerned paramedics swiftly prepared a backpack with nappies and other essential supplies for the child. The boy is now with relatives.
