Cops search for man after skeleton find
A MAN IS being sought over the discovery of a child’s skeletal remains in scrub east of Adelaide.
Police believe the child was murdered, but are yet to determine the sex or identity.
Their investigations are now centred on a man who was spotted carrying a suitcase in the area six to eight weeks ago.
“That person was about 60 years of age, of average height, lightly built and neatly dressed and clean cut ... he was carrying a dark- coloured suitcase in one hand,” Superintendent Des Bray said yesterday.
They want him to make contact with detectives and have also called for anyone who saw him in the Wynarka area to come forward. A motorist found the child’s remains and a suitcase off the Karoonda Highway, east of Adelaide, on Tuesday, but did not alert police until Wednesday.
“The suitcase was concealed behind a bush,” Supt Bray said yesterday.
