The elderly man, who was known to the woman, was taken into custody.

Her death is now being investigated by Major Crime Squad detectives who say the woman died in ‘very tragic circumstances’, Perth Now reports.

Overnight, the suburban street was cordoned off as forensic officers searched the property.

A neighbor told 7 News he was unnerved after learning of the death.

‘I had seen about six to eight cop cars, there were cops everywhere.

‘It’s a bit unnerving as we’ve only moved into the area about four or five months ago.’

Investigations continue.
