The body of the 34-year-old was found at a home at Rassay Court, Frankston just before 10pm yesterday.
Police ruled the death suspicious and a large area surrounding the house remained a crime scene for most of today.
Forensic investigators scoured the street while detectives took large bags of evidence from the house.
Members of the SES also conducted a line search of a nearby park.
A neighbour who was woken to sirens after the discovery last night said the incident was “very upsetting”.
“It’s usually very quiet around here,” they said.
