The woman found dead in a home at Cranebrook on Sunday has been identified as Dannielle Finlay-Jones.
The family of the 31-year-old won’t be addressing the media as investigations continue into her death.
“While her family appreciate the media’s interest, they have requested their privacy at this difficult time in their lives,” a Police spokesperson said.
“The investigation into the circumstances surrounding Dannielle’s death is being led by detectives from Nepean Police Area Command under Strike Force Eynahm.”
About 2.30pm on Sunday, emergency services were called to a home on Borrowdale Way, after a woman was located with serious injuries inside the home.
Ms Finlay-Jones was declared dead at the scene.
Earlier today, police issued an appeal for assistance from the community to locate a man they believe is connected to Sunday’s incident.
“Ashley Gaddie, aged 33, is wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for murder,” the appeal said.
“Officers from Nepean Police Area Command have conducted extensive inquiries into his whereabouts; however, he has not been located.”
He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 180cm tall, of muscular build, with blue eyes and a bald head.
Both of his arms are covered with tattoos.
The man is known to frequent the areas of Five Dock, Penrith and Mt Druitt.
Anyone who spots him is urged to call police immediately.
