Detectives arrested a 32-year-old man from Tarneit and a 34-year-old from Point Cook about midday yesterday.

They were released last night pending further inquiries, police said.

It comes two days after Steven James Hunter was charged with Ms Cafferkey’s murder.

A court heard Hunter, 47, of Bacchus Marsh, had made admissions to police over her murder.

Ms Cafferkey was stabbed multiple times at a flat in Bacchus Marsh on November 10 before her body was moved to Point Cook in Melbourne’s outer south-west, the out-of-sessions court hearing was told on Tuesday.

Police say her body was found in a wheelie bin at a house rented by two men in Point Cook on November 18.

She had been reported missing on November 9 after vanishing from her hometown of Bacchus Marsh, about 50km north of Point Cook.

Her car was later found abandoned in a suburban Maribyrnong street.

Hunter is being held in custody and will appear in court again in March.

He had been spotted having a drink with Ms Cafferkey in a Bacchus Marsh pub around the time she disappeared and had also been in regular contact with her on Facebook.

Police said the investigation into Ms Cafferkey’s disappearance and death was continuing.

Residents of Point Cook last night held a vigil for Ms Cafferkey.
