A witness has told of the moment he found his housemate dead in his driveway – covered in blood – as he returned to his home in Sydney’s south-west in the early hours of the morning.
Maintenance worker Daniel Tua returned to his Moorbank home after his night shift just before 6 a.m. on Friday when he found the 43-year-old woman dead in the driveway.
The police said that the woman had sustained serious injuries on her left hand and had no other obvious injuries.
Detectives are investigating a broken window at the property.
‘It was still dark’, Mr Tua told Daily Mail Australia.
‘As I turned into the driveway I saw the body lying there with blood splattered all over. On the driveway, on the footpath.’
He said: ‘I didn’t want to go near her. I was scared.’

Mr Tua could not get through to the emergency services so he flagged down a driver to call them.
He said the woman, his housemaid, was wearing a loose-fitting Fijian-style dress.
‘They [her and her boyfriend] Live by myself and I live on my own,’ said Mr. Tua.
‘If they mind their business, I mind my business. We don’t really speak.’
Mr Tua’s car was still parked across the road and in the driveway when Daily Mail Australia visited the scene.
A police officer who was at the scene for seven hours said that two homicide detectives were still at the scene.
However, he added: ‘I don’t think it’s murder: it looks like suicide.’
A source told Daily Mail Australia the woman suffered injuries to the back of her head
