Police can confirm the human remains found at Mount Macedon yesterday are that of missing Avondale Heights, woman Karen Ristevski.

Investigators received the results following forensic testing this afternoon.

Karen was last seen at her home address on Oakley Drive in Avondale Heights at about 10am on 29 June last year.

Her remains were located by a member of the public in bushland off Loch Road at Mount Macedon about 12.30pm yesterday.

Police conducted a line search at the scene today and are keen to speak to anyone that may have seen any suspicious activity in that area.

Missing Persons Squad detectives are appealing for anyone that may have been walking along the dirt track off Loch Road or anyone that may have seen any vehicles to contact them.

Investigators are also hoping to speak to anyone that may have been at Mount Macedon any time from June last year and took photos or any video footage in the area.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.

Our thoughts are with the family and all involved.

  • this seems to be a bit of a complicated saga now. very sad for those that knew and loved her.


  • I was not even aware of this story. Sad. I hope they find the killer.


  • Very sad for the family. I hope the police find the culprit.


  • Very sad ot hear the news but the family now has closure for Karen.


  • How sad !!
    Hope the police gets to the bottom of this and justice can be done.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.


  • I was hoping this wouldn’t be the case! Absolutely devastating :(


  • oh what a sad outcome to her disappearance. From the report I get the feeling that foul play might be involved. I hope whoever was involved was silly enough to leave some personal evidence behind so justice can be done.

    May she rest in peace now, and sincere condolences to her family and friends :(


  • some closure for all her loved ones, R.I.P. to her, such a sad day for news today


  • I don’t recall hearing or reading anything when Karen was reported missing.
    My sympathy to her family. The only consolation to them is she has been found, tragically dead.


  • I am sure the family are relieved to have found her, now the question of what happened.


  • Im certain the husband and his brorher are in on this. What a ludicrous interview the husbands brother did regarding her and a fake passport to China or the USA.
