Why Melissa Caddick's parents blame ASIC for her death as just two bouquet is delivered for her

Melissa Caddick's parents are said to be furious at the Australian Securities and Investments Commission after her remains washed up on a beach - as just two bouquets of flowers were delivered to their home by well-wishers.

Caddick vanished a day after ASIC confronted her during a raid at her luxury Dover Heights home in Sydney's eastern suburbs on November 11.

Caddick stood accused of a huge alleged fraud in which she swindled at least $20million from clients who included friends and family. 

Human remains washed up on a beach on the New South Wales South Coast on Sunday - which were later matched to Melissa Caddick's DNA from her toothbrush.

During the raid of her Dover Heights home by ASIC, Caddick allegedly demanded answers on how she was to abide by a court order freezing her assets

Flowers addressed to Barbara Grimley were delivered to her home at Edgecliff on Friday following the news her daughter's remains had been identified

Her parents Ted and Barbara Grimley are understood to feel 'furious' at ASIC over their investigation.

On Friday flowers were delivered to Barbara Grimley's home at Edgecliff after the news broke that her daughter's remains had been found.

Grimley is Caddick's maiden name. 

Caddick disappeared without warning on November 12 and despite multiple sightings reported to police, there were no confirmed reports of her whereabouts - until this week.

On Sunday a dismembered foot was found by three teenagers when it washed up in a sports shoe at Bournda National Park near Tathra.

In a sworn statement tendered at the Federal Court, and recently made public, ASIC investigator Isabella Allen alleges Caddick hit her with a barrage of questions when authorities raided her $6.2million Dover Heights mansion on November 11.

Caddick allegedly demanded answers on how she was to abide by a court order freezing her assets.

Her decomposed foot was found by campers 400km away from Dover Heights on Bournda Beach in Tathra 

Those questions includes: When would she have to appear in court? Where would she drop off her passports? Did one order mean she couldn't use her credit cards, because she used them for all transactions?

Caddick also asked how quickly she had to write up a description of her assets and liabilities, and 'how am I supposed to do that when you have taken my computers?' she allegedly said.

The investigator replied: 'I am unable to answer that question and it may be best that you speak to a lawyer. Do you have a lawyer?'

More flowers arrived for Melissa Caddick's parents after news of their controversial daughter's death

It is believed ASIC had been investigating her for three months before the raid. 

Investigators were looking into Caddick's disappearance held vital clues about her whereabouts just days after she vanished. 

Modelling by NSW Police marine rescue teams, taking tides and drift patterns into account, has explored the possibility that Ms Caddick entered the water in the Dover Heights area around November 12.

Meanwhile on Wednesday it was made clear the investigation into the mission millions would continue.

"ASIC's priority is to seek the return of funds to investors in the most efficient way possible," an ASIC spokesperson said.

"Following the announcement ... that the remains of Ms Melissa Caddick have been identified, ASIC notes that its investigation into Ms Caddick and her company, Maliver Pty Ltd, is continuing."
