Death investigation, Yandaran (Bundaberg)

Police are appealing for public assistance following the death of a man in Yandaran, north of Bundaberg.

Around 6.15am yesterday, fishermen discovered the body of a man in Mullet Creek and alerted police.

Subsequent enquiries have confirmed the deceased to be a 64-year-old Bucca man and police are investigating to determine the cause of his death.
