NSW Police are today making an Australia-wide appeal for information in an effort to identify a man whose decomposed body was found in a ‘sleeping’ style bag on the banks of the Tweed River at Tumbulgum last year.

Police called to the scene on Saturday 24 November confirmed the bag contained human remains and it was taken to Newcastle Morgue.

A post mortem examination established the man was Caucasian, aged between 50 to 70 years, 163cm tall and had grey hair tied in a ponytail with a blue band. He may have worn dentures.

The post mortem was unable to determine the cause of the man’s death.

Tweed-Byron Local Area Command crime manager Detective Inspector Brendan Cullen held a press conference earlier this morning outside Tweed Heads police station in a nationwide appeal for information.
