Police say the death of a man whose body was found on a Brisbane street, following reports of a nearby fight, isn’t suspicious.
The death of a man whose body was found on a Brisbane street is not considered suspicious.
An east Brisbane suburb was locked down on Wednesday morning after the 51-year-old’s body was discovered following a domestic dispute which involved an assault.
Officers were called to Idamea Street at Carina Heights after reports of a fight about 2.30am.
The man’s body was found a few blocks away a short time later.
Investigators shut off streets and set up crime scenes where the body was found, as well as at the scene of the earlier assault.
But Queensland police said later in the day the man’s death was no longer being treated as suspicious.
The dead man and the victim of the assault, a woman in her 40s, were known to each other.
