Police fear the person who left a woman’s body in a wheelie bin beside a Victorian country road has already fled the country.

Her body was discovered on Mount Pollock Road in the town of Buckley, near Winchelsea, about 40km from Geelong, in Victoria’s southwest about noon on Saturday.

Footage of the area shows detectives and police near a wheelie bin in bushes on the side of the road, believed to be the crime scene.

“Investigators are treating her death as suspicious and a crime scene has been established,” Victoria Police said in a statement.

“A second crime scene has been established at a residential address on Mirka Way, Point Cook, and is believed to be connected to the homicide.”

Investigators believe those involved are known to one another and the offender may have fled overseas.
