A woman has been arrested in Sydney’s eastern suburbs over the bizarre death of Vergel Velasquez.
Mr Velasquez, 42, was found unconscious by police in the stairwell of his Girraween unit complex on December 30 last year with severe head injuries after “reports of a group of men involved in a physical altercation”, police said.
He died in Westmead Hospital on New Year’s Eve.
Last week, four men – Michael Porter, Shane Weatherall, Leslie Fernando and Lionel McGrady – were arrested in Moree in north-west NSW, some 600 kilometres from where Mr Velasquez’s bloodied body was found. They have all been charged with murder.
