Man found dead in yard


POLICE and forensic officers were last night investigat­ing the death of a man found in the yard of a New Farm property.

Paramedics and police were called to the property about 12.30pm after a relative of the man found his body in the yard of the Merthyr Rd property.

“A family member has attended the address and has located the male and contacted the ambulance and police,” Senior Sergeant Sean McKay said yesterday. “At this stage we are unsure of what has led up to the male being deceased, so we are treating it as suspicious until we can determine otherwise.”

A woman who was in the street shortly after the man was found said a car was parked across the driveway and a man and a woman were out the front of the property.

“She was very stressed,” the witness said.
