A second body in less than a week has been discovered at Tumbulgum.
The unidentified decomposed body was found in a bag on the banks of the Tweed River near Dulguigan Rd on Saturday.
Last Wednesday two fishermen found a body floating in the river about 400m upstream of Tumbulgum Bridge.
Police told Echonetdaily that they don’t believe there is any connection between the two deaths.
The body of the man found on Wednesday has now been identified as that of Mark Napieracz, 35, of Tumbulgum.
Police retain their view that Napieracz’s death was accidental.
They found abandoned fishing equipment and his car not far from his body and believe that he fell while fishing in the river.
Police say the body found on Saturday was so badly decomposed that even the sex of the apparent victim has yet to be identified.
The body has been taken to the NSW Morgue at Glebe for forensic examination.
Police are currently mystified as to the cause of death and no clues have been found as to how the body came to be where it was found.
A strike force has been formed to investigate the matter.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Tweed police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence.
