    Australia - Rani Featherston, 34, Doveton, Vic, 2 April 2014

    April 02, 2014 1:21PM

    A YOUNG woman found dead in an industrial area in Melbourne’s southeast was the victim of a vicious assault, police say.

    Shocked workers found the body on a nature strip halfway down Lace St, Doveton, as they arrived at work about 7am on Wednesday.

    Det-Sen-Sgt Stephen McIntyre said the woman, aged in her late teens to mid-20s with long dark hair, suffered cuts to her body and traumatic head and facial injuries consistent with an “edged weapon”.

    A woman who was found dead in Doveton in Melbourne's south-east may have been bashed with a weapon, police say.

    A man was on his way to work when he found the woman lying in a pool of blood in Lace Street early this morning.

    Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen McIntyre says the death is being treated as suspicious.

    "We are treating this as a homicide, she's got some significant injuries to the upper body, we believe there was probably an edged weapon used," he said.

    It may just be me and my distinct lack of tech-savvyness , but I couldn't find what you were referring to about Rani from that link......but I did find it, however, when I Googled her name.

    Thanks for the lead, Jo04!!

    I had interpreted the silence so far as meaning police were close to finding her killer. Guess I was wrong.
