Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a murder victim, whose body was found in Mt Lambert yesterday.

According to reports, around 10.30 am residents of Mt Lambert Circular contacted police after they noticed the body of a man lying in a bushy area off the road.

The victim’s body was partially wrapped in a sheet and his head was covered with a T-Shirt.

The body was taken to the Forensic Science Centre in St James, where an autopsy will be performed as soon as it is identified.

Homicide detectives declined to comment on if the body bore marks of violence as they said they would wait for the autopsy to confirm the cause of death. Anyone with information which may help police solve the case is asked to call 555 or 800-TIPS.

Detectives of the Region Two Homicide Bureau are continuing investigations.
