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.
