Police are appealing for witnesses in their investigation of the suspected murder of a heavily pregnant woman in Perth’s north-east.

Janet Dweh, 36, was found dead inside her Dayton home on 6pm Monday night.

She was eight months pregnant with her fourth child.

Acting Police Commissioner Col Blanch said police investigations are continuing today.

“This is a terrible, tragic case,” he told Gareth Parker.

“We’re doing a lot of work to establish her movements in the days leading up to her being found.

“As part of those investigations detectives would like to speak to anyone that saw suspicious activity in the street between 10am Saturday October 2 and 6pm Monday October 4”.

The Acting Commissioner said it’s possible the murder suspect knew the victim.

“For community confidence reasons, I think that’s a working theory, but all options are open at this time,” he said.

“We’ve got to make sure we do that investigation the way we must, and that is very properly and very thorough.

“But for the rest of the community I think we are looking domestically more than anything else.”
