Byron Bay wants Byron Baes to back off

Faster than speeding reality TV producer, members of the Byron community have swiftly mounted a multi-pronged attack against the proposed ‘influencer’ based Netflix show Byron Baes.

Police have established a crime scene after the body of a man was found in the rear yard of a block of units in Winton Lane, Ballina, this morning.

Inspector Nicole Bruce told Echonetdaily that police were ‘investigating a deceased person’ but no further details were available.

Police were called to the units just before 7am.

A crime scene was established and detectives have asked that crime scene investigators attend the scene.

Further information will be posted as it becomes available.
