The body of a 54-year-old woman has been found in a unit above a shop in NSW’s central west and police are searching for her husband.

Police are treating the death in Cowra as suspicious and say they are also worried about the welfare of the husband, Paul Mundy, who is also 54.

Cowra police duty officer Inspector Anthony McLean said the body of Mrs Mundy, whose first name is not known, was found in a unit above the Calare Butchery on Kendal Street.

The Mundys are from the surrounding district and use the unit when they stay in town, Inspector McLean said.

Mr Mundy was named in the local paper, the Cowra Guardian, as the manager of the butchery in June last year.

The discovery came after police found Mrs Mundy’s gold-coloured Nissan abandoned on Cowra Bridge about 7am, Inspector McLean said.

“Her husband is a person that we need to speak to; he is missing at the moment,” Inspector McLean said.

Police spent the day searching the Lachlan River. Mrs Mundy’s car was found in the roadway on the two-lane bridge with its hazard lights on.

A post-mortem examination will be conducted to determine the cause of Mrs Mundy’s death.

A crime scene has been set up at the unit and the car will undergo forensic examination.

Anyone with information about Mrs Mundy’s death or the abandoned vehicle is urged to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
