Cops search for man af­ter skele­ton find

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

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.
