Man under police guard after woman’s body found on rural property
A 43-year-old man is under police guard in hospital after a woman’s body was found on a rural property in South Gippsland overnight.
Police found the woman around 2.30am on a property in Hedley, about 90km south of Moe near the South Gippsland coast.
The man under police watch was involved in a car crash earlier in the night in the Hedley area, according to a Victoria police spokeswoman.
Although the woman is yet to be formally identified, both people are believed to be known to each other.
