The Missing Persons Squad arrested two men after human remains were found at a Noble Park address following the suspected disappearance of Brendon Farrell.
The forklift driver, Mr. Farrell, 32, was last seen around 12:30 pm on May 31 by a friend in a bungalow he lived in behind a house on Kidds Road in Doveton.
Police found human remains at an address on Cyril Grove in Noble Park, 25 kilometers southeast of Melbourne’s financial district. Now a crime scene has been set up on the site.
A 30-year-old Hampton Park man and a 49-year-old Noble Park man were arrested Friday morning and are assisting police with investigations.
No one has been charged in Farrell’s disappearance.
The coroner and specialists from the Major Crime Scene Unit are expected to attend the Noble Park address and examine the scene, with an autopsy taking place Saturday morning.
Farrell’s disappearance was deemed out of place and family members reported him missing on June 2.
Police told reporters at a news conference last week that they believe an altercation occurred at the Doveton bungalow on May 31, which may have involved weapons.
A Victoria police spokeswoman said detectives were still interested in speaking with anyone with information about the altercation at the Doveton property or with those with knowledge of who was present at the time.
