A witness has told of the moment he found his housemate dead in her driveway – surrounded by blood – when he returned to his home in Sydney’s south-west in the early hours of the morning.
Maintenance worker Daniel Tua returned home to Moorebank after his night shift before 6am on Friday when he found the 43-year-old woman lying dead in the driveway.
The woman had suffered a serious cut to her left arm and had suffered no other obvious injuries, police said.
Detectives are examining a smashed window at the property.
‘It was still dark’, Mr Tua told Daily Mail Australia.
‘As I turned into the driveway I saw the body lying there and blood was everywhere. On the driveway, on the footpath.’
He added: ‘I didn’t want to go near her. I was afraid.’

Mr Tua could not get through to the emergency services so he flagged down a driver to call them.
He said the woman, his housemate, was wearing a loose-fitting Fijian-style dress.
‘They (her and her boyfriend) live by themselves and I live on my own,’ Mr Tua said.
‘They mind their own business so I mind my own business. We don’t really speak.’
Mr Tua’s car was still parked across the street and on the driveway when Daily Mail Australia visited the scene.
A police officer, who had been at the scene for seven hours, said two homicide detectives were still at the scene.
However, he added: ‘I don’t think it’s homicide: it seems more like suicide.’
A source told Daily Mail Australia the woman had injuries to the back of her head
