Police to follow leads from “body in a bag” appeal

A NATIONWIDE appeal by Tweed police to help identity human remains found in a bag has resulted in leads.

Just 24 hours after police made the call out they've already been contacted from people with information.

"We have had some calls and we're following up the leads," Tweed's crime manager Inspector Brendon Cullen said.

"We've got a lot of stuff to look into and we will have a lot of inquires to make."

Insp Cullen said he did not know if the death was suspicious, "but we can't rule it out one way or the other."

"It's our job to keep an open mind."

"We just don't know."

Detectives from the Tweed-Byron Local Area Command will now follow up all the leads which, so far, have all come from the local area.
