Appeal for information, homicide investigation, Nambour

Sunshine Coast detectives investigating the alleged murder of 31-year-old Buddina woman Aysha Baty are appealing for public assistance as they try and trace her recent movements.

Police would like to speak with anyone who saw, had contact with, or knows about Aysha’s movements and or whereabouts over the past seven days.

Detectives are also keen to speak with anyone who has background information regarding Aysha’s relationship with friends and associates.

Police were called to Matthew Street, Nambour around 1.30am on Saturday, August 22 following reports a woman had been seriously assaulted.

Aysha was allegedly located with significant injuries and declared deceased at the scene.

A 34-year-old Burnside man was arrested yesterday and charged with murder. He is due to appear in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court tomorrow (August 24).

Last night detectives appealed for anyone who was in the vicinity of Nambour CBD, particularly Currie Street on the Bridge, near the Nambour RSL who observed any suspicious behaviour between 12.30am and 2am Saturday, August 22 to contact police. This appeal remains current.
