A human skull found washed up on a beach on Tuesday was the first in a series of grisly discoveries that have left Victoria Police investigating five deaths.

By Saturday, along with the human remains found on North Shore beach in Geelong, two men had been stabbed to death and two bodies had been found in mysterious circumstances by distressed passersby.

On Saturday morning, a Port Melbourne man was charged with murder following the death of another man in Port Melbourne on Friday.

Hugh Brown, 44, faced Melbourne Magistrates Court on Saturday morning and was remanded to reappear on June 23.

The charges follow the discovery of a man with life-threatening stab wounds in Nott Street about 3pm on Friday, who died later that day.

The 44-year-old victim was also from Port Melbourne.

The charges follow a week of crime and mystery in Victoria.

On Tuesday, a fishermen found human remains believed to be a skull on the North Shore beach about 11.30am when the tide went out.

On Wednesday, a passerby found a body in a parked car in Melbourne’s outer suburb of Ringwood. The silver Holden Commodore may have been parked on Wildwood Grove, for several weeks, police believe.

On Friday, a jogger discovered a body wrapped in a cloth at a tennis club car park in Dallas, in Melbourne’s north. Police are yet to determine the cause of the death or identify the body.

On the same day, hours after the Port Melbourne man was fatally stabbed, a man believed to have been at a house party in Norlane, in Geelong on Friday night was stabbed to death.

Victoria Police spokeswoman Natalie Webster said aside from the Port Melbourne stabbing, there were no further developments in any of the cases.

When asked how police were coping with the workload, Ms Webster said Victoria Police would always have capacity to ensure an appropriate response to “these types of incidents”.

“It’s not particularly different to other similar incidents such as vehicle fatalities,” she said.

Police are urging anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.

Australian Capital Territory tally room abandoned due to ‘security concerns’

June 17 2016

Electoral authorities say “security concerns” were behind a decision to abandon a tally room for the local ACT election in October.

The decision of the ABC to pull out of the tally room, and the decisions of others jurisdictions to abandon the concept also contributed to the decision, ACT Electoral Commissioner Phil Green told an estimates committee on Friday.

“The thing that most gave us cause to decide it wouldn’t be a sensible thing to do to have a tally room was the security situation,” he said.

“The fact that there are people now in Western countries now, who are targeted by people with guns and bombs.

“Holding a public thing like the tally room we think is a very serious risk.”

Son of killer Ian Turnbull ordered to pay millions for clearing land illegally

The son of Ian Turnbull, the octogenarian farmer who gunned down a NSW environment officer investigating him for illegal land clearing, has been ordered to carry out repairs worth $4.5 million to one of the family properties.

A Land and Environment Court judgment has found Grant Wesley Turnbull was responsible for illegally clearing 508ha of land over an 18-month period.

Some of the property, cleared.Some of the property, cleared.

It was these actions that led to his father committing murder.

Justice Malcolm Craig found Turnbull had not stopped his father from clearing land that was the subject of court orders on his property, Colorado, at Croppa Creek, about 60km north-east of Moree.

“The explanation for that latter work occurring and not being disclosed was that he had failed to provide his father with the appropriate plan and inform him that those areas should not be cleared,” Justice Craig said.

“What caused him (Grant Turnbull) to think that it was not necessary for him to disclose that fact at the time when the matter was before the Court is not explained.”

Outraged at what he regarded as officialdom’s ongoing intrusion into his family’s affairs, the older Turnbull shot and killed Office of Environment and Heritage officer Glen Turner on the road outside the property nearly two years ago.

Additional illegal land clearing was discovered by field officers, who used aerial photography and satellite imagery, less than a month after the killing.

“As a consequence of the clearing that occurred between January, 2013, and 31 July, 2014, significant environmental harm was occasioned. The acceptance by all four experts that remediation is required, satisfies me that an order for that work should be made,” Justice Craig said.

He said the illegal clearing “involved a breach that had significant consequences”, and caused the loss of local endangered ecological habitats, including feed trees known to have been used by a population of koala and likely habitat for the Grey-crowned Babbler.

Grant Turnbull purchased the property in January, 2012.

Almost immediately Ian Turnbull became involved in a long-running dispute with the Office of Environment and Heritage over illegal land clearing.

The elder Turnbull was initially charged with illegally clearing native vegetation by bulldozer on Grant Turnbull’s property and an adjacent property, Strathdoon, owned by his grandson Corey Turnbull. Grant and Corey Turnbull had invested $5 million to buy the two properties.

The dispute over illegal clearing on Colorado and Strathdoon culminated on July 29, 2014, when Glen Turner and a colleague, Robert Strange, went to inspect the properties.

Turnbull spotted them and, armed with a rifle he kept in his ute for shooting wild pigs and kangaroos, raised his weapon and repeatedly shot Glen Turner without uttering a word.

Last month, Turnbull was found guilty of murder after a five-week trial. Victims statements were heard this week and he is expected to be sentenced at a later date.

In a 28-page judgment, Justice Craig said because of several circumstances identified he couldn’t be satisfied that “without a restraining order in place, Mr Turnbull will adhere to the provisions of the Native Vegetation Act in conducting his farming activities on Colorado”.

Justice Craig found 508 hectares had been cleared on the property, as opposed to the 29.4 hectares Turnbull had conceded had been cleared in contravention of the Act

Turnbull did not deny clearing the land but challenged the extent of the clearing of native vegetation and the terms of the remedial order, during the proceedings.

The farmer argued the economic consequences of the remedial work was estimated at $3,948,000 over the next 15 years, while fencing off the area to be rehabilitated was estimated to cost $406,560.

He said the cost “would have significant ramifications for the viability of his farming activities” and would significantly diminish the value of his property.

Justice Craig rejected Mr Turnbull’s arguments that the remediation work would cause economic hardship.

“First, he advocated, supported by his experts, that rehabilitation should and would be undertaken in order to compensate for the clearing that he acknowledged to have been carried out in contravention of the NV Act,” Justice Craig said.

“Secondly, … no evidence was given by him as to the financial consequences of complying… I have no evidentiary basis upon which to determine that the cost of the remedial works in the applicant’s proposal is disproportionate to the cost of implementing

Justice Malcolm Craig also imposed a restraining order on Grant Turnbull to stop further clearing.Turnbull was ordered to pay cost.
