Mystery surrounds woman found collapsed in park

Police say a woman who was found collapsed at an Aveley park early on Tuesday morning could have been there since the night before.

Mystery surrounds what exactly happened to the woman in the hours before she was found, with police launching a fresh appeal for information this morning.

The woman, aged in her 20s, was discovered by a member of the public at a dog park on Egerton Drive near Virago Street just after 6am.

Police believe the woman went to the park with her small black Cocker Spaniel around 7pm on Monday — but it is unclear what occurred in the hours in between.

Almost a dozen police officers, including detectives and forensics, descended on the park on Tuesday after receiving the triple zero call.

The woman was taken to Joondalup Health Campus for medical treatment, but it is unclear what injuries she suffered.

Detectives would like to speak to anyone who was in the area between 7pm on Monday 5 April and 6am on Tuesday 6 April who may have seen the woman or have dash-cam vision of the area, particularly along Egerton Drive and south of Millhouse Road in Aveley during the listed times and dates.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online.

People reporting information to Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous if they wish.
