A section of bushland has been screened off between Drakeford Drive and Lake Tuggeranong as police investigate.
AFP forensic officers and an ACT Fire & rescue fire truck were at the scene on Monday afternoon.
Police have concentrated their efforts on a band of bushland between Drakeford Drive and Lake Tuggeranong.
Detectives were seen sweeping a thin slice of shoreline while forensics officers worked behind a black screen about 200 metres from the road.
Two dirt four-wheel-drive tracks merge about three metres from where the forensics team works.
Police have placed green markers on the dirt track leading down to the site from Drakeford Drive.
The site is across the water from Bunnings and the Tuggeranong town centre.
Police initially asked people to avoid the area, however, that is no longer the case.
ACT Policing will prepare a report for the ACT Coroner.
