Arrest over Queensland Cordingley murder


A man has been arrested in India for the alleged murder of Toyah Cordingley in Far North Queensland four years ago.

The 24-year-old pharmacy worker and animal shelter volunteer was found dead on Wangetti Beach, north of Cairns, after walking her dog on October 21, 2018.

Queensland Police say a man has been arrested in connection with the case in cooperation with Indian authorities.

“We can confirm that a man was arrested in India today following a significant investigation into the tragic death of Toyah Cordingley in Far North Queensland in 2018,” they tweeted on Friday afternoon. .

Many media claim the man is Indian national Rajwinder Singh, 38.

Queensland Police have been tracking Singh, an Innisfail nurse who left the country shortly after Ms Cordingley’s body was found, for four years.

The then Deputy Federal Minister to the Attorney General, Amanda Stoker, sent an extradition warrant for a suspect in the murder case to Indian authorities in March 2021.

Earlier this month, Queensland authorities offered a $1 million reward, the largest in state history, for information leading to Singh’s arrest.
