SEPTEMBER 24 2016 – 4:37PM
A 29-year-old man will remain behind bars after he was charged with murder following the discovery of a body in western Sydney.
Michael Hadler did not appear in Parramatta Local Court on Saturday and did not apply for bail after being charged with the murder of Brian Hamilton, whose body was found in a shared rental home in Bass Hill on Friday morning.
It is believed the men were known to each other.
Emergency services were called to the home on Buist Street at about 11:20 am on Friday morning and located the body with “obvious signs of injury”, Chief Inspector Glen Fitzgerald from NSW Police said.
Police said there were no reports of fighting or screaming in the area in the time Mr Hamilton ois thought to have died.
Investigators combed through the nearby area, checking in gutters and down stormwater drains.
Mr Hamilton was last seen alive in the house on Thursday night by another person who lives in the share house.
Mr Hadler handed himself in to Bass HIll Police Station and was taken to Bankstown Police Station where he was charged with murder.
He will appear on Burwood Local Court on September 28.
