Homicide detectives have taken over the investigation into the death of a man who suffered serious head injuries at a Mt Lawley building site on Thursday.
The injured 68-year-old was found at the construction site on the corner of Walcott and Learoyd streets about 2.15pm.
He was taken by ambulance to Royal Perth Hospital, where he later died.
Police cordoned off the building and spoke to construction workers who had been on the site.
The cause of the man’s death has not been established and police confirmed yesterday that the homicide squad had taken over the investigation. Two vehicles parked metres away from the worksite were yesterday seized by police for forensic testing. Jim Kelly
