Police are yet to lay charges over the suspected murder of a Queensland mother-of-four who died after suffering head injuries at a home near Gympie.
Police are still trying to piece together what led to the suspected murder of a Queensland mother-of-four.
Kirra McLoughlin died from head injuries in the Gold Coast hospital on Friday after a fight at a house in Wolvi, east of Gympie.
Homicide detectives have interviewed a number of people but so far no one has been arrested, and no charges have been laid.
There are reports the 27-year-old may have lain injured at the house for up to 12 hours before she was taken to a local hospital on Thursday, and later flown to the Gold Coast for specialist care.
A post-mortem examination has been carried out but police have not released the cause of death.
Those who knew Ms McLoughlin said she was a caring mother, with four children all aged under nine.
Anna Doyle, who works at a local child care centre used by Ms McLoughlin, said the Wolvi community was devastated by her loss.
“She had the biggest smile and a beautiful face,” she told the Brisbane Times.
“It’s really shaken us a lot. We’re only a small childcare centre and we do become close to the families. You live their lives with them.”
Friends told the Brisbane Times Ms McLaughlin was separated from her husband and had been living with another man at the property where she was injured for the past eight months.
