The body of 88-year-old Nettie Rowe was found in her home in Runaway Bay at around 11:30 a.m with multiple stab wounds to the chest.

The police investigating the incident said it appears that the elderly woman may have been sexually assaulted. 

The body was reportedly discovered by a relative who recently returned from overseas.

Rowe lived alone.

The police who are continuing their investigations, are yet to establish a motive for the killing.
