Editorial – Byron Council report card

Did you know it’s been six months since councillors were elected? They have another two years to go, and while a usual term is a gruelling four years, this time, it’s shorter, owing to a disrupting bat virus.

Police are appealing to the public to help identify a man whose body was found at Tumbulgum on Saturday evening in a bag on the bank of the Tweed River near Dulguigan Road.

Post mortem examination results have indicated the remains are of a Caucasian man aged between 50 and 70 years. He was described as being about 163cm tall and had long grey hair tied in a pony tail about 150mm long, with a blue band.

Detectives from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command, with the assistance of the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad, are continuing investigations into the matter.

They are appealing to anyone who may know the identity of the man to contact them.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
