    You'd think so, Puggs, but it's been 2 weeks since police found her remains and still nothing. If it was a killing under Sharia Law ie, adultery, no doubt the Muslim community will be very tight-lipped.

    Yes, let's hope so, Puggs; especially as DI Hughes 'thinks there will be a direct link to the family'.

    Also that it's 'believed someone must have helped dispose of [her] body' and she 'was not killed at the car park'.

    As well as adultery, she may have wanted to divorce her partner or have actually left him and been discovered/or informed upon. I'll have to search the Australian Institute of Criminology's Publications and look at the trends in domestic/family violence specific to Middle Eastern communities. I remember reading of quite a few similar, very violent, deaths of women under those circumstances years ago.

    No doubt an analyst from the Middle Eastern Major Crimes Squad (if one still exists in Victoria) will be part of the investigating Task Force for this poor woman.

    'This is not accidental. We believe this is a targeted attack," Detective Inspector Hughes said.

    "We think there will be a direct link to the family."'

    Woman likely killed somewhere else, dumped in carpark

    'Police believed someone must have helped dispose of the body and said the woman was not killed at the car park where she was found.'

    'The public was asked to check in with friends, family and neighbours who they think are somewhere else.'

    Mystery murdered woman found in Dallas was family violence victim, police believe
    The Age
    Chloe Booker
    June 30 2016

    'An unidentified woman who was murdered and dumped in a car park suffered "serious and sustained" injuries in a what police believe was a case of family violence.'

    'Speaking from the caravan, Homicide Squad Inspector Mick Hughes said the attack was targeted and not a "one off where someone lost their temper".'

    '"This is a serious assault. This is not an accident [where] someone hit someone and they accidently died and they've panicked and they've placed her body there."

    The woman, perceived to be of Middle Eastern appearance, was found in an open area wrapped in a dark brown and cream quilted blanket.'

    'Pathology testing has led them to believe she may be a mother.

    Inspector Hughes said a weapon was used in the assault, but would not disclose further details other than it wasn't a firearm.'

    This one is a real worry. I am familiar with the area and a lot of families have people coming from and going overseas, at numbers incongruent with what you'd expect given the socioeconomic status of Dallas. She may well not be an Australian citizen. If she is around 40, there is likely still minor children who may be in a very bad situation too. Hope they are pulling out all the stops with CCTV and phone pings to see who was around at the time.

    Three children are in hospital, their mother is missing, a man is in custody and the homicide squad have been called in after a dispute at a home in Broadmeadows on Monday night.
    Detectives are believed to be investigating links between the missing mother and the discovery of a woman's body in nearby Dallas on June 17

    'A man arrested by police after 3 injured children from a Broadmeadows home were taken to hospital last night, is being interviewed by police over the murder of a woman whose body was found in Dallas last month. He has been named as Bassam Raad, 34, of Broadmeadows. He was previously acquitted in 2006 over terror related charges.'

    Thanks for the updates, 1968. I suspected as much when I heard about this on ABC News 24 Breakfast this morning. Those poor children. They've lost their Mum and their father is allegedly responsible for her murder.

    My heart goes out to those littlies as well, Bo. I wonder, if as earlier speculated, the Dallas lady was in fact a sharia killing? And the mention of the masked Man who drives up to the property only to drive off in a great hurry, pursued by police, what's all that about? Come back to finish the job?
    Rescue the children ?
    One of the articles (HeraldSun) mentioned that a neighbour spoke to her (the mother of the children) and she was told by her husband to 'go inside' he sounds like a pretty hardline sort of a dude.
    If in fact the husband is Bassam Raad, theres a fair bit in the media about him. He's known to police for sure.
