Work­site death

The West Australian - - NEWS -

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
