Body of man discovered in remote bush house



POLICE were last night investigating the death of a man on an isolated property near Tyalgum. The man, believed to be in his mid-fifties, was found late yesterday by a neighbour after they became concerned when the man had not paid his rates or been seen in weeks. It is believed the man, possi- bly the home owner, may not have been seen since December. A crime scene investigator arrived late yesterday to retrieve evidence from the scene and was clearly overcome by the smell in the prop- erty. Police have not ruled out if the death was suspicious and could only give the Daily News scant details late last night as investigations were still in their early stages. Sergeant Bill Henry of Murwillum- bah police said yesterday the man, who was living in a hamlet-style area, may have been dead for up to three months. The home the man was found in was only partially constructed and was approximately two kilometres down a winding, private access dirt track from Byrill Creek Road, and 15 kilometres outside of Tyalgum. Grass surrounding the small timber home was overgrown and dense bush- land surrounded the property. ? SAMANTHA HEALY
