The police renewed their public appeal to obtain information about the death of Toyah Cordingley
Police said Monday they believed she was killed in a sexual assault, according to 9 News, but declined to give details about her comments on Tuesday when they renewed her public request for information, which has since triggered a series of calls to Crime. Stoppers.
"All lines of investigation will be followed and all relevant examinations will be carried out," Detective Inspector Sonia Smith said Tuesday.
& # 39; We have not discarded anything, and nothing outside. We have a very open mind with this investigation & # 39;
The dog "larger than average" of Mrs. Cordingley was found before her, the canine unharmed and tied to a nearby tree.
Experts have identified the brown dog as a German shepherd cross, Dane, Mastiff.
Toyah Cordingley accompanied her dog on the beach before she was murdered. His dog was found unharmed and tied to a nearby tree.
It is known that both the races of German shepherds and mastiffs are aggressive with strangers, and German shepherds are especially known for their "protection of resources", which means that they can become aggressive when someone touches their food or its owner.
Now police are expected to examine the dog, which is believed to be called Indie, in an attempt to find its killer.
Considering the size of the dog and the traumatic end with which its owner was found, it is possible that the animal did not see a threat, or that it was tied before a threat presented itself.
Cordingley was with his & # 39; dog bigger than average & # 39; (It is believed that she was photographed) when she was murdered. The dog was found tied close and unharmed, suggesting that the animal had not perceived a threat. The animal is expected to be examined as part of a forensic investigation.
Ms. Cordingley was reported missing on Sunday night after driving from her home in Woree to walk her dog on the beach at around 2 in the afternoon of that day.

They were driving back to Cairns, near the southern parking lot, when they were knocked down by two men dressed in poor taste "in a highly agitated state" on the side of the road in a white 4WD with a flat tire.

"We stopped to help, and they were in a very stressed state," he told the publication.
"It may not be anything, but they were really strange, and in a real panic to get out of there."
The police have not been able to confirm that they have a suspect or someone of interest. Detective Inspector Sonia Smith said that everyone should have a safety plan & # 39;
With Mrs. Cordingley's murderer loose and without published clues as to who is responsible for the death, Det Insp Smith said that people should take precautions.
"Everyone should be aware of their surroundings and have a safety plan wherever they are," he said.
