A man seen outside the home of Frankston North mother Traci O’Sullivan shortly before her body was discovered has been ruled out as a suspect.
Ms O’Sullivan, 42, was found dead in her Timbertop Court home by her young son and former partner about midday on Saturday.
Police were searching for a blond man aged in his 20s, whom Ms O’Sullivan’s former partner spoke to briefly in the driveway before making the grisly discovery.
But that man has since approached police and has been ruled out as a suspect.
“Homicide squad detectives are no longer seeking to identify a man seen in a black Mazda 3 in Timbertop Court,” Acting Sergeant Julie-Anne Newman said on Monday.
The homicide squad is investigating the circumstances of Ms O’Sullivan’s death, but have not confirmed how she died.
On Sunday, Detective Inspector Mick Hughes revealed Ms O’Sullivan appeared to be the victim of an assault.
He said there was no sign of forced entry at the house where Ms O’Sullivan lived alone.
“The circumstances would suggest that it’s someone who was known to her or someone who was able to persuade her to come into the house,” he said.
Ms O’Sullivan was last seen alive on the afternoon of Thursday, February 5, when she was visiting family.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
