A tragic incident unfolded at St Andrew's Cathedral School in Sydney's CBD, as a female staff member was found dead in a school bathroom. Emergency crews were alerted to the scene following a report made by a concerned family member. The woman, believed to be in her 20s, has not yet been formally identified.
The discovery of the staff member's body has led to the establishment of a crime scene, which is currently being examined by forensic experts. Police have labeled the death as suspicious due to the nature of the injuries sustained by the victim. Further investigation will be conducted through a post-mortem examination.
Authorities are now actively searching for a male colleague, also in his 20s, who has gone missing near The Gap in Vaucluse, located approximately 8km east of the CBD along the coast.
The community has been left shocked by this tragic event, and St Andrew's Cathedral School announced that it will remain closed for the remainder of the week. In a message to parents, the school's principal, Dr Julie McGonigle, informed them that an area not accessible to students has been cordoned off as a crime zone. It was reassured that no students were involved in the incident.
Detectives are currently seeking information and consulting with school officials while forensic officers await developments outside. Meanwhile, the search for the missing male colleague continues at The Gap in Vaucluse, where police teams are scouring the coastline near Diamond Bay Reserve.
