A 24-year-old Morayfield woman was arrested at a home in Upper Caboolture a short time later, believed to have been the passenger in the stolen car.

She’s since been charged with one count each of murder, arson (motor vehicle) and unlawful use of a motor vehicle and will front a Caboolture court today.

Homicide detectives are now calling on public assistance to help local the suspected driver of the vehicle, Skye Anne Wallis.

Her exact whereabouts are unknown, but she’s understood to have connections with the North Brisbane and Moreton areas.

She is described as 170cm tall, Caucasian, with dyed silver hair and brown eyes.

Queensland Police Union President Ian Leavers is pleading for her to hand herself in.

“Hand yourself in, we know who you are, we’ve got an active homicide investigation,” Mr Leavers told Sunrise this morning.

“Hand yourself in. The community at large – they’re just appalled by what has happened.

“Hand yourself in, because you’re going to be caught, it’s not if, it’s when we’re going to get you and you will be before the courts and we just want you to be dealt with and I really want a harsh sentence when it comes to something like this.

“Because this resonates across the board, the community have had enough,” Mr Leavers said.
