Police have revealed the identity of a man whose “mummified” remains were found in his own home as investigators appeal for information from the public into his mysterious death.
Officers made the grim discovery at the Benowa home, on the Gold Coast, on April 17 after being called to conduct a welfare check by the man’s interstate relatives.
Initial inquiries indicate he may have been dead at the Edinburgh Rd home for more than 12 months.
Investigations into his death have been ongoing ever since.
Police have revealed the mummified remains are those of ACT man Tomislav Nemes, who moved to Queensland in 2018.
Photos of the 69-year-old have been released by detectives in an appeal for any information from relatives and associates who may have been in contact with him.
Queensland Police said Mr Nemes’ death was being treated as suspicious, with scientific examinations into the cause of death ongoing.
Detectives are appealing to his friends, family and associates from both ACT and Queensland, who may have been in contact with Mr Nemes in recent years, to come forward.
An image of the home has also been released.
Officers are urging anyone who may have attended the property in recent years to come forward.
Detective Acting Inspector Mark Proctor is due to address the media later on Tuesday.
