POLICE cordoned off a local community park at Wimbledon Heights on Phillip Island after the discovery of a body there on Monday, March 8.

They have since issued the following statement:

“Police will prepare a report for the coroner following the discovery of a woman’s body in Wimbledon Heights.

“The body was located by a dog walker in a reserve on Hallway Drive shortly after 8am.

“The death is not being treated as suspicious.”

News media outlet, Crime Watch Victoria, had previously reported on the incident in terms of police setting up a “crime scene” at the location, but this has been dismissed by local police.

“It’s definitely not a crime scene, no,” said a police spokesperson at the scene around 12 noon today.

Several police were on scene this morning but after conducting their inquiries, the scene was cleared and police tape removed.
