Police conducting investigations into a suspicious death at Tumbulgum have revealed that the human remains discovered in a bag on Saturday night were those of a man aged between 50 and 70.

About 7pm on Saturday, a member of the public found the bag on the bank of the Tweed River near Dulguigan Road.

Police were called to the scene and conducted an inspection of the bag, confirming it contained human remains.

The bag and remains were taken to the morgue over the weekend and the preliminary results revealed yesterday.

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 have witnessed suspicious activity in the area to contact them.

Anyone with information about the matter is asked to contact Tweed Heads Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be provided anonymously and will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
