Horror as 18-year-old woman’s body is found in bushland near Brisbane – with a 19-year-old man charged with her alleged murder hours after they met up
A 18-year-old Queensland woman’s body has been found in bushland, with police charging a 19-year-old man with her murder.
The pair, who are known to each other, met on Saturday afternoon at a car park in Strathpine, north of Brisbane, police say.
The woman from Petrie did not return home, leading to her family raising concerns.
Police tracked down the Kallangur man on Saturday evening at a service station Nambour, about an hour’s drive north of Strathpine.
The woman’s body was found overnight in bushland at Nambour, and the man has since been charged with murder and moving a corpse.
He is expected to face Maroochydore Magistrates Court on Monday.
