Zoo Murder Suspect Identified As A Sous Chef

Jude Wijesinghe, zoo chef

The suspect in the murder of a female Canberra Zoo worker has been identified as Jude Wijesinghe, a Zoo chef. The Daily Mail broke the news, revealing that the police have raided his apartment where he has been, according to residents, living for a year or two.

Jude Wijesinghe is described as a motorcycle and fitness lover. He has been working all over Australia as a Sous chef. His current position is as a chef at the National Zoo & Aquarium, where he works in the Jamala Wildlife Lodge.

He studied cooking in Melbourne after moving to Australia from Sri Lanka. He graduated in 2019, and he ran a blog, showing off his culinary creations.

All that is known about Jude Wijesinghe and the female victim, who is believed to have been of Bhutanese descent, is that they were coworkers. Also, the police are currently trying to establish if there was any romantic relationship and what the motive was.

Neighbours of Wijesinghe were asked about any potential relationship he could’ve had, and they said, as far as they were aware, he was single. Furthermore, no women had been spotted going to or from the apartment. He was also known to be “a good neighbour.”
