    Johann Morgan has been missing for almost a month, and police have already searched her West Tamworth home and a burnt-out car believed to be connected to her.

    Ms Morgan hasn't accessed her bank accounts or contacted her family since August 8.

    Detective Sergeant Jason Darcy said the information received so far indicates she may have met with foul play.

    "All records show that she hasn't accessed any accounts, she's made no phone calls or been in touch with family and friends," he said.

    "Given that we believe that Johann may have met with foul play."

    Coroner called in: inquest could determine Johann Morgan's fate
    Oct. 18, 2015, 9 p.m.
    In early September, police confirmed they believed the missing woman had met with foul play. Now, the NSW Coroner has been informed of the disappearance and suspected death of Ms Morgan, with the coroner’s jurisdiction to assist in the investigation. The referral was made in recent weeks by Oxley police who, by law, must refer the case when they believe the missing person is deceased.

    From April:


    A recent NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) study into intimate partner homicides suggested a majority of the victims and offenders didn't come to the attention of police for domestic violence before the murder.

    However, some do...

    In 2012, police took out an AVO protecting Tamworth woman Johann Morgan from Troy Jason Ruttley. In December, Ruttley – an ex-partner – was charged with her alleged murder.
