Queensland Police are investigating the deaths of two women in separate incidents, with men, “believed to be known” to the women assisting officers with the investigation in both.

The body of a 38-year-old woman was found in a camp ground, about 30 kilometres outside of Winton, in western Queensland, just after 3am. The woman, who had been holidaying in Queensland from Western Australia, was found in a remote camping ground within the Bladensburg National Park.

A man police described as “believed to be known to the woman”, also thought to be from Western Australia is “assisting police with their inquires”. Police are also investigating the death of a woman at Pormpuraaw near Cape York on the state’s tip.

Officers had responded to a reported assault on Yalu Street just after 6.30am and found the woman deceased.  A man, also “believed to be known to the woman” was assisting police with their inquiries. Specialist police are headed north to help with the investigation, given the township’s remote location.
