Empanadas and community spirit in wake of cancelled Bluesfest

Police have revealed the name of an 80-year-old man who was found dead by officers in his car off Shara Boulevard, Ocean Shores, at around 12.40pm on Saturday afternoon (May 24).

Inspector Jim Kain of Tweed-Byron Local Area Command told Echonetdaily that John Williams, from Ocean Shores, was last seen around 6am prior to being discovered when his car was sighted by police in bushland to the side of the road.

‘The Red Mitsubishi Magna had driven off the road and collided with a tree,’ Insp Kain said.

He added it was not clear whether Mr Williams had died from the impact of the vehicle or an existing medical condition.

‘That will be for the coroner to determine,’ he said.

Police investigations are continuing.
