Police are still trying to establish how a man who was found face down in the water between The Pass and Wategos Beach, Byron Bay, yesterday came to be in the surf fully dressed.
Police say the man, in his 40s, was wearing all of his clothes, including his shoes, when he was discovered.
The man’s body was picked up by surf lifesavers on a jetski and taken to The Pass.
He is believed to be a Byron Bay local but his name has yet to be released.
An autopsy will be conducted later this week to determine the cause of death.
Police would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the man enter the water.
They are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/.
