found dead in a Sydney car park have said they are devastated by her death.

The PSNI issued a short statement on behalf of the Bangor, Co Down, family of Comrie Cullen.

Ms Cullen's estranged husband has been taken into police custody after her body was found with severe trauma wounds to her upper body at an isolated angler’s club yesterday.

He is under guard in hospital, New South Wales police said.

The couple had three children, aged five, seven and 11 years. They are understood to be in the care of friends.

“Our family is devastated by Comrie’s tragic death and we would ask for no media intrusion at this time,” her family said.

Specially trained officers are providing support to the family and are in contact with authorities in New South Wales about the investigation into her death and arrangements for her repatriation.
