Unauthorised dwelling capital of the world!

Could Main Arm’s title as the Unauthorised Dwelling Capital of the World be under threat?

Neighbours of a man found dead in South Murwillumbah this morning say he had just been released from hospital after being attacked two months ago.

The man in his 40s was found dead  just after 5am on Friday.

Police say another man in his 20s had been assaulted.

The gruesome discovery was made in a granny flat above a commercial business on Quarry Road.

An employee from a nearby business said the man who died had only come home from hospital this week.

‘We believe the man who died was the same man attacked a couple of months ago,’ the woman, who did not want to be identified, said.

An employee from another business in the industrial area also confirmed the dead man was the victim of a vicious assault in April.

Police reported that two men, 46 and 48, were attacked in a home on Quarry Road on April 7.

Both men suffered serious injuries, including one man who was stabbed in the eye.

Both men were treated at a Gold Coast hospital.
