According to police, these people may have inadvertently witnessed certain events that detectives believe will provide crucial information in this matter.

It comes after a 40-year-old woman was found unresponsive on the CBD beach around 9.45pm that night.

A 38-year-old man was arrested and charged with her murder on January 3.

She is believed to have died from blunt force injuries to the head.

Anyone with information which could assist with identifying these people are urged to contact police on 131 444.
