Woman found dead in Sydney park identified

POLICE have identified the woman whose body was found near a playground on Sydney’s North Shore last week as Nicole Cartwright.

A council worker came across the 32-year-old woman’s body whilst mowing the lawn at Buffalo Creek Reserve about 7.30am last Wednesday.

A major crime scene was declared, with the homicide squad called in to investigate.


They’re now appealing for help from the public to establish Ms Cartwright’s movements prior to her death and have released CCTV vision of Nicole travelling on a bus between Town Hall and Ashfield on 28 September.

Police say Ms Cartwright lived with her parents at Lansvale and had a wide circle of friends, often spending time in Sydney’s CBD, Eastern Suburbs, and surrounds.

She did not own a vehicle, but frequently travelled on public transport around the Sydney Metropolitan area.

Anyone with information is being urged to come forward.
