Here’s what you need to know this morning.
Saudi sisters’ apartment for rent
The Sydney apartment where two Saudi sisters were mysteriously found dead has gone back on the rental market, with a disclaimer from the real estate agent.
In June, Asra Abdullah Alsehli, 24, and Amaal Abdullah Alsehli, 23, were found dead in separate beds in their Canterbury apartment during a welfare check.
Police said there were no obvious signs of injury or forced entry and called the deaths “unusual.” Neither homicide nor suicide has been ruled out.
The Canterbury Road apartment has now been listed for rent again but prospective tenants have been notified of the recent deaths.
“A crime scene has been established and it is still under police investigation,” the listing reads.
“According to the police, this is not a random crime and will not be a potential risk for the community.”
John Barilaro inquiry
The parliamentary inquiry into former deputy premier John Barilaro’s controversial trade job appointment will summarize public hearings this morning.
Investment NSW CEO Amy Brown, who oversaw the recruitment process for the US-based role, will front the inquiry for a second time.
She first gave evidence five weeks ago but a lot of new information has come to light since then.
The opposition says it plans to question her about her discussions with Trade Minister Stuart Ayres and why she decided the original preferred candidate, Jenny West, was unsuitable.
Labor has previously called for Ms Brown to be stood down.
Goulburn firefighter wins gold
NSW firefighter Ellen Ryan has made Commonwealth Games history, claiming gold with a two-shot victory in lawn bowls.
The Goulburn brigade member became the first Australian in her sport to win a gold medal in Britain and the first to claim the women’s singles crown.
The 25-year-old got her first taste of the sport in 2008 and made her senior debut for Australia in 2017, narrowly missing out on a spot in the Commonwealth Games team a year later.
Five years on, she’s living out that dream of wearing the green and gold on the world stage.
Rooty Hill station assault
Blacktown’s mayor has publicly condemned violence after three teenage boys allegedly assaulted an off-duty police officer and Blacktown City councilor on Monday.
The teenaged trio were allegedly involved in an assault at Rooty Hill train station, which ended in a 60-year-old chief inspector allegedly being struck multiple times to the head with a bike seat pole.
Mayor Tony Bleasdale said the alleged attack was absolutely despicable and also involved one of the most respected members of the Blacktown City community, Councilor Bob Fitzgerald.
Three teenagers have been charged and police are urging witnesses to come forward.
