PICTURED: Woman, 33, whose body was found dumped half-naked in Sydney bushland and set alight

A woman whose body was found half naked and set alight in Sydney bushland on Wednesday has been identified.

Najma Carroll’s body was found in bushland near Sandy Point Quarry off Heathcote Road in Menai at 5.15pm on Wednesday by a member of the public. 

The 33-year-old from Sydney’s Inner West was found with head injuries and early examinations indicate that attempts had been made to set her body on fire.

A crime scene has been established, with specialist forensic police examining the site on Thursday.

Investigators are marking the area with neon flags close to a popular dirt bike track which has been closed. 

Police have appealed to the public for information and asked anyone with information on Ms Carroll’s death to come forward.

They would like to speak with anyone with knowledge of Ms Carroll’s movements in the last few days or anyone who saw anything suspicious off Heathcote Road at the site known as ‘white rock’.

Investigators are still trying to determine whether she was killed at the scene or her body was dumped there later. 

Local detectives and the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad have launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death.

They say her injuries are consistent with a murder and are treating Ms Carroll’s death as suspicious.

A press conference will be held later this afternoon.
