1. Man’s body found in Brisbane wheelie bin
Detective Inspector Mark Thompson says officers who responded to a resident’s calls about a “bad odour coming from a wheelie bin” found a “harrowing” scene, with the body likely to have been there for up to 10 days.
“I can’t go into what looked like or its condition … I have spoken (to the officers who found the body and) as you can imagine it’s fairly horrific,” he told reporters on Sunday.
Speaking to media at the scene, a resident said there had been a foul smell in the bins for a few days.
He opened the wheelie-bin which had been “overstuffed” with bin bags.
“I only lifted the lid before a whole heap of flies hit me in the face and I was done,” he said.
He did not see the body, but alerted the real estate agency who told the police.
Officers were called to a unit complex on Yeronga Street in Yeronga at 7pm on Saturday.
Det Inspect Thompson says the man has been identified but they are yet to contact his family.
Police have released photographs of two men, aged 38 and 30, and two women, aged 27 and 23, they would like to speak to about the death.
Members of the public are advised not to approach the people but to call triple zero if they spotted them.
Det Inspect Thompson also called for any members of the public who had seen suspicious activity on Yeronga Street, Cowper Street, Shottery Street or at the Yeronga train station to contact Crime Stoppers.
A number of crime scenes have been declared as detectives work to determine the cause of the man’s death.
