Major Home and Away spoilers follow.

Home and Away is launching a new murder mystery storyline after a suspicious Summer Bay death.

The show has spent the past few days teasing the demise of one character – and the unlucky individual's identity has now been confirmed.

In upcoming episodes on Channel 5, viewers will discover that con artist Susie McAllister – played by Bridie Carter – has been killed in unknown circumstances.

The dramatic revelation aired on Australian screens today (June 15) and will play out for UK fans in July.

The storyline begins when two fishermen find a body out in the water.

Forensics and water police soon arrive on the scene, with new cop Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) taking charge of the situation.

Dean Thompson initially fears that his sister Mac has passed away, as she has been missing from the Bay for several days.

Ryder Jackson also worries that it could be Mac and feels guilty for feuding with her over his rival food outlet.

However, it's soon revealed that the body is actually Susie, who was last seen fleeing town after conning a number of the local residents.

Susie's reign of terror in the Bay saw her trick John Palmer by pretending to be in love with him, while she also conned Justin Morgan and Leah Patterson-Baker out of their savings by pretending to help them buy a house.

Even Irene Roberts was left with a score to settle, as Susie attacked her with chloroform and knocked her out, shortly before leaving the Bay.

A statement released by Channel 5 to Digital Spy teased: "Everyone is left wondering – was this an act of revenge? Or is there a deeper mystery to Susie's murder?

"Don't miss a second of the action as Home and Away unravels the suspects."

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
