    Australia - Anthea Mari, 34, murdered in her Brisbane home, 26 Aug 2014

    Woman murdered in house at Norman Park as her children slept

    August 26, 2014

    POLICE have released the name and photo of a man who they want to speak to over the suspected murder of a woman who was killed while her children slept inside her inner Brisbane home in Norman Park this morning.

    Detectives want to speak with Jacob Michael Smith, 38, who they say is a person of interest in the investigation. He is 180cm tall, of average build with dark brown hair

    Anthea Mari, 34, was found dead in the living room of her house this morning, with police and paramedics called about 3.30am.

    The Courier-Mail understands police are investigating whether the mother-of-four was strangled.

    Police said while Mr Smith was known to live around the Gold Coast, particularly Coolangatta and Mudgeeraba, and Wynnum, attempts to locate him had been unsuccessful.

    Detective Inspector Rod Kemp warned the public to stay away from Mr Smith.

    “We are mindful he could be a danger to the public. We just don’t know what his involvement is until he comes forward.”

    He said he could not comment on whether Mr Smith has a violent history.

    “Stay away from him and contact police.”

    Police have appealed for anyone who heard or saw anyone in the street prior to 4am to come forward.

    Unfortunately, Anthea experienced alot of domestic violence in her life.


    Ms Mari, a mother of four, once featured in a campaign for for not-for-profit organisation Micah Project. She spoke of spending 15 years of trying to raise a young family while moving in and out of domestic violence refuges.

    Am sending her much love. May she rest in peace.

    One of the flatmates found the woman.

    “They spoke to this person, they saw this person leave and then one of the persons has then checked on the deceased,” he said.

    “He is known to the person, he has been there before.

    What's in the water in Brisbane, this is now happening all too often!

    “We believe he is just a friend, we don’t believe there was any relationship.
    “He is a person of interest in this matter, he was there last evening we believe from what witnesses have told us so we are calling for him to come forward.”

    Two housemates and the daughter of the woman have assisted police in the investigation.

    Police say he visited the house earlier in the night.

    ..... none of the residents heard a disturbance and police did not believe a weapon had been used.

    The Milsom Street home sits opposite a sporting field and within walking distance of the Norman Park train station, about five kilometres from the CBD.

    Ms Bright said she walked past the home most days on her way to the local shops.

    "It's normally a pretty quiet house...You never really see much movement or never really see people coming in or out," she said.

    "We sometimes wonder if anybody ever lives there."

    The location has been described as both Camp Hill and Norman Park. I have spent a lot of time in Norman Park, it is a very quiet place.

    That's alarming isn't it! I suspect he does indeed have a violent history if police are warning people to stay away from him
