Ms Isaac’s car was found burned out in bushland 13km away near Castlereagh in the city’s north-west. 

Specialist forensic police are examining the home and what remains of the vehicle.

Daily Mail Australia understands Ms Isaac was not fully clothed when she was found.

NSW Police Acting Superintendent Carlene Mahoney said the 32-year-old man and Ms Isaac had been friends for a long time but had only started dating recently.

Police do not believe a weapon was involved, and neighbours had reported a disturbance shortly before Ms Isaac was found.

‘Police were informed that there was a disturbance at the premises and they did attend and they later identified that the deceased was at the premises,’ Superintendent Mahoney said.

Ms Isaac’s children were not home at the time. 

A friend of the mother-of-two said she was the ‘most beautiful, kind-hearted and selfless’ person she had ever met.

‘She lit up the room and was the life of the party,’ the woman, who requested anonymity, told Daily Mail Australia.

‘She was an amazing doting mother to two beautiful girls who absolutely adored her, and I am so so proud to call her not just my friend, but my sister.’

Another friend wrote to Facebook: ‘RIP gorgeous girl, I’ll miss you’.

Those living in the area have been rattled by the news about the death of their neighbour.

One local resident said she saw police cars lined up the street when she arrived home on Monday afternoon.

‘I just heard the news, I was shocked,’ she said.

‘This area is pretty quiet, you don’t hear about much happening around here. It tends to be more in Cranebrook.’

Another woman who lives in the same building as Ms Isaac said she woke up this morning to the property taped off and police officers scouring the site.

‘It was quite scary, I was at work yesterday and found out over Facebook a woman had died in my street,’ she said.

‘When I came home late last night there was only one police officer there, but when I came out of the building this morning they were everywhere.’

Police are urging anyone who may have information that could assist detectives to come forward and contact Penrith Police station or Crime Stoppers.
