A car crash in Belmont on Saturday is understood to be connected to the suspected homicide, 10 News First reports.
“Her husband was saying they were both fine but he wouldn’t let us speak to my sister and we knew something was up and kept on trying to call,” Jessica’s sister told Nine News Perth on Sunday.
It is understood a family member broke through the roof to find the body.
“We are a really close family,” the sister told media. “She was really loved.”
2. “Infanticide on demand.” Tony Abbott attends anti-abortion rally in Sydney.
Former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott has appeared at a Sydney anti-abortion rally ahead of a NSW upper house vote on draft abortion decriminalisation legislation, labelling the bill “infanticide on demand”.
Upper house MPs will this week consider a raft of proposed amendments on the bill to take abortion out of the criminal code.
The Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019 allows terminations up to 22 weeks, as well as later abortions if two doctors considering all the circumstances agree the termination should occur.
The bill in August passed the lower house 59-31.
Mr Abbott, along with former Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce, NSW finance minister Damien Tudehope, Christian Democrat MP Fred Nile and a host of Christian religious leaders spoke at the rally on Sunday at Hyde Park.
