Domestic violence probe over Brisbane unit murder-suicide
POLICE have said the death of an Indonesian woman whose remains were found in a Brisbane unit appears to be the result of domestic violence.

Detective Senior Sergeant Tom Armitt said: "At this present time, our investigations are simply around it's a domestic violence matter that has become out of hand."
He also revealed that Ms Mayang died "more than likely late Thursday evening, or early Friday" and said there was no suggestions drugs were involved.
Detective Senior Sergeant Armitt said police would probably finish investigating at the unit later today.
