Following investigations, a red hatchback was found in Waterloo about 3pm on Wednesday, police said.

Police have already charged a 29-year-old man, Lloyd Haines, with Mr McNulty's murder.

He was also charged with attempted murder and aggravated break and enter. He appeared at Parramatta court on Wednesday and was formally refused bail.

Barrister Winston Terracini, SC, arrived at Cabramatta police station on Wednesday evening to represent Ms Wran.

As he was leaving the police station several hours later, Mr Terracini said his client was "just being processed at the moment".

He said Ms Wran had been treated well during the charging process, saying there was "absolutely no complaint about the police".

The Herald understands no application for bail will be made on Thursday.

Detectives went to Ms Wran's Woollahra home on Wednesday but no one was there. 

Mr Wran, who was Labor premier from 1976 to 1986, died on April 20 this year.

Ms Wran's Facebook page states she is studying modern history at the University of Sydney.

Friends of Mr McNulty expressed their shock and sadness following his death.

"Your sharp wit, world observations, humour and brilliant dance moves will be missed my friend. Rest in Peace," wrote one friend on Facebook.

Another friend wrote that Mr McNulty was a talented musician who performed in a band with him in the early 1990s.

"Daniel was a funny, talented and gifted musician who had an on going battle with addiction," the friend wrote.

"He, like so many others hated what he had become but couldn't get away from it, being on a treadmill of hand to mouth subsistence living, trying to keep off drugs in his environment was impossible."

The friend remembered Mr McNulty as a "funny, driven, sensitive man".
