A NORTH Shore man charged with the mur­der of a 41-year-old fa­ther is ex­pected to face the Gee­long Mag­is­trates’ Court to­day.

The 40-year-old man was ar­rested in Lara yes­ter­day and charged by homi­cide squad de­tec­tives with one count of mur­der.

The vic­tim has been named as Ja­son Fry, 41, a fa­ther of three from North Shore.

Mr Fry’s body was found on Sun­day morn­ing in a blue VT Holden Com­modore sta­tion wagon parked in Sea Breeze Pde, North Shore.

Po­lice were in the area that morn­ing in­ves­ti­gat­ing a bur­glary at a Seaforth St prop­erty when the body was found. The street con­nects to Sea Breeze Pde.

On Mon­day de­tec­tives said they be­lieved the blue Com­modore con­tain­ing the body had been moved in the week lead­ing up to the grisly dis­cov­ery.

Mr Fry’s niece Kirra Adams posted a trib­ute on so­cial me­dia yes­ter­day.

“It won’t ever hurt any less than what it does right now, but the mem­o­ries I have with you will never fade,” she said.

“You were tru­ely (sic) one of a kind, and it breaks my heart know­ing this has come to an end. You didn’t de­serve this un­cle Ja­son, but I hope you’re rest­ing in peace we will meet again some day.

“I love you for­ever and al­ways, I’ll al­ways watch over your beau­ti­ful kids and pro­tect them just like you’d want. I’ll be there for ev­ery­one to make sure they’re okay.”

Work­ers in the Seaforth St in­dus­trial area told the Gee­long Ad­ver­tiser they had not seen the blue Com­modore in the area late last week.

Po­lice say the plates found on the car were not reg­is­tered to a home within the Gee­long re­gion. They yes­ter­day re­fused to re­veal the lo­ca­tion the car was reg­is­tered to but said it did not ap­pear it was stolen.

By noon Mon­day, the Holden sta­tion wagon had been re­moved from the scene af­ter an ex­ten­sive search by foren­sic po­lice.

Po­lice also searched a Seaforth St prop­erty on Mon­day.

A real estate sign at­tached to the fence de­clared that Mr Fry had been evicted on April 9 due to un­paid rent.

“Ja­son Fry . . . Under the terms and con­di­tions of your com­mer­cial lease agree­ment and the re­quire­ments of the Re­tail Ten­an­cies Act, and due to rent re­main­ing un­paid we have ex­er­cised our rights to lock you out of these premises with ef­fect from 9/4/2018 5:00pm,” the sign read.

The ac­cused was ex­pected to face an out-of-ses­sions hear­ing in Gee­long last night.

Vic­to­ria Po­lice se­nior com­mu­ni­ca­tions of­fi­cer Alex Day said the man was ex­pected to be re­manded to ap­pear at Gee­long Mag­is­trates’ Court to­day.
