Murder under investigation after woman’s body found at waste management facility

A murder investigation is underway after a woman’s body was found at a waste management facility in Melbourne’s north-east.

Staff made the discovery while removing green waste at Epping’s Cooper Street facility on Wednesday.

The woman has not been identified, but will be when police receive the results of the autopsy.

Police said the woman is believed to have been inside a container that was collected outside a property in Coolaroo on Tuesday and taken to the facility in Epping.

Officers are on the streets obtaining CCTV footage to determine what happened.

Police are appealing to anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage of what happened between Sunday last week and Tuesday.

“Detectives are also interested in speaking to anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the area at the time,” police said.
