Mystery continues to surround the murder of a Broadwater man last week known locally as ‘Ned Kelly’.

Police are remaining tight-lipped about the case after reporting on Friday that the body of a 54-year-old man had been found at his home in River St; murder was suspected and forensic specialists were attending.

However some media are reporting that the man had been decapitated and his head had been ‘taken away’.

One Sydney newspaper said on the weekend that his body was found in the kitchen with a hat where his head should have been.

And APN Media reports that around a dozen police, including officers from the Richmond Operational Support Group and the NSW Homicide squad, searched thick bush surrounding the home yesterday for any clues relating to the death.
