BREAKING: POLICE have revealed a woman whose body was found burning on the side of a dirt road south of the Gold Coast on Thursday was from Logan.
A motorist stumbled across the horrific scene on Pollards Road at Dulguigan, west of Tweed Heads, around 7.30am.
It’s understood the driver pulled over after seeing the fire, believing it was a burning log.

It wasn’t until the motorist stepped out of their vehicle to investigate further when they made the grisly discovery.
What the driver first thought was a burning log turned out to be a woman’s body which had been propped up against a tree and set on fire.
Horrified, the motorist extinguished the body and alerted police who spent most of yesterday at the scene, combing the area for clues.
Police released a statement this afternoon, confirming the body has since been formally identified as Sabrina Bremer, a 34-year-old woman from the Logan area in South East Queensland.
Police said Ms Bremer was reported missing to police in Logan yesterday after last speaking with a family member on Tuesday.
No official cause of death has been determined at this stage, however, police confirmed Ms Bremer had sustained serious burns to most of her body.
Police are appealing for information as they try and piece together Ms Bremer’s final moments and have established Strike Force Faringdon to investigate her suspected murder.
Anyone who may have seen or spoken with Ms Bremer in the last week is urged to come forward and contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
She is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 170cm tall, with a medium build, dark brown hair with red highlights, and a stud-piercing below her lower-right lip.
Detectives said early investigations have revealed Ms Bremer was in the Logan area on Monday evening and, at the time, was wearing a black jumper with a red t-shirt underneath, and light-blue jeans, with rips in the knees.
Investigators are working closely with Homicide detectives from Queensland Police Service and would like to remind members of the public that information can be provided anonymously.
As the investigation is still in its infancy, no further information can be provided at this time.
