Police are searching for public support as they continue to investigate the deaths of an 11-year-old girl and her mother in Brisbane’s inner west.
Celeste Pearson’s body was located in the bathroom of a unit at Auchenflower early on Tuesday morning.
The physique of her 49-year-old mother was located about 4 hours later at a nearby building site and police think she took her personal life.
Forensic officers and detectives are still operating to establish who is accountable for the death of the girl, who was described as a high academic achiever and was about to finish Year 6 at Milton State College.
Her eight-year-old sister is getting cared for by loved ones and close friends.
Police are urging the public to come forward if they have any information about the family’s history.
Officers are continuing to comb the apartment exactly where the child was located for proof.
Detective Acting Superintendent Geoff Sheldon stated there was a surviving father, 65, who was asleep and uninjured in the unit when they arrived.
Police spoke to the man for hours yesterday and he was released with charge.
