Girl, 11, and her mother found dead in neighbouring suburbs
POLICE are investigating the violent death of an 11-year-old girl in Brisbane's inner west, and the death of her mother in a neighbouring suburb.
Officers were called to a high-rise complex on Dunmore Terrace in Auchenflower where the body of the girl was located about 1:40am.
The body of her 49-year-old mother was found in the neighbouring suburb of Toowong about 5:30am.
Detective Acting Superintendent Geoff Sheldon said the body of the child was found when friends of the family asked police to do a welfare check.
"They had some concerns and we've gone around and unfortunately those concerns have been validated to the worst possible degree," he said.
