In a statement, police said a relative found the woman "collapsed" inside her home on Saturday, with officers called to the residence just after midday.

"Despite efforts by emergency services, the woman was pronounced deceased at the scene," police said.  

Following further information in relation to the woman's death, homicide detectives later set up an investigation centre at Carseldine Police Station.  

Crews of SES workers brandishing metal detectors alongside Queensland Police are on scene searching the property.  

Scientific and forensic officers were also earlier at the home, which backs onto large parkland.  

The property has been roped off with crime tape and is an active crime scene.    

One neighbour said detectives had knocked on her door asking for information on Monday evening in relation to the death of a woman.
