Dead man found in St Kilda backyard
Police are appealing for the public’s assistance to try and identify a dead man found in St Kilda on Wednesday.
The man was found in the backyard of a Barkly Street home just after 9.30pm on the 26th.
An autopsy has been conducted which indicated the man possibly died from a fall, but police are still trying to establish the man’s identity.
Investigators believe the man is aged in his 30s or 40s and was wearing a blue check shirt, black track pants, a green jacket and moccasins.
He has two distinctive tattoos, outline only with no colouring, one on his left chest and another on his right shoulder.
Police have released a computer-generated image of the man and images of the two tattoos.
