Shebeen Kumar: Body found just four minutes from Dural home


The body of missing woman Shereen Kumar was uncovered just four minutes away from her home in Sydney’s northwest, where she lived with the man now charged with her murder.

The 43-year-old’s body was found wrapped in plastic and dumped in bushland off Laurie Rd, Dural, just before 6pm on Saturday.

The reserve is only a four-minute drive, or 2.8km, from the home she shared with her boyfriend Vincent Carlino.

Carlino, 37, was arrested at 11.30pm on Saturday night, just hours after the shocking discovery.

Police will allege evidence found on Carlino’s phone led them to the spot where her body was located, according to The Daily Telegraph.

He has since been charged with her murder in what police say was a domestic violence incident.

The 37-year-old faced Parramatta Court on Sunday and did not apply for bail.

Ms Kumar was reported missing on Thursday by Carlino, who told the police they had gotten into an argument the night before and she had walked out of the house in her pyjamas without her phone.

He told the media last week he was “extremely worried” about her disappearance.

“I’ve told police all of the places I think she could be,” he said.

Carlino and Ms Kumar, a human resources consultant and model, took over the franchises of the popular Hornsby Mad Dogs & Englishmen pet walking service in October last year.

Police believe they had an “on and off” relationship since April last year, which involved a break-up and an apprehended violence order, before a reconciliation and move to Dural, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Ms Kumar was a mother to two children, aged 12 and seven.

Her ex-husband Gurpreet Beehan said she was a “strong woman” and “wonderful mother”.

“I had to have the hardest conversation of my life with my kids before,” Mr Beehan said, speaking to The Daily Telegraph.

He said he knew the last thing she would have been thinking about before her death was her kids, as “they were her everything”.

A friend who knew Ms Kumar through the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce, Les Stock, told news.com.au she was known for her positive disposition and having a smile that lit up the room.

“If the power was off still I think we’d still be able to see because of her smile,” he said.

Mr Stock added that Ms Kumar never stopped talking about her children, and was “a mum at another level”.

Longtime friend Roselyn Pillay wrote a tribute to Ms Kumar on Facebook, describing her as “a warrior woman” who valued friendship and honesty. The pair met in high school in 1997.
