A year long alleged business dispute between two men in Hervey Bay has ended in murder.
A 62-year-old Urangan man was found with significant injuries to his head at an Urangan business complex at approximately 8:00am on Monday 4 April 2022. The victim has died at the scene from his injuries.
Police have arrested the business complex owner Mr Brett Williams and charged him with the murder.
Mr Williams was alleged to have been in a year long business dispute with the victim. He was arrested at the industrial estate where the victim was found. While the investigation is still ongoing and Mr Williams is co-operating with Police, the investigation will take some time to unfold the full picture of what happened.
The large industrial estate will undergo forensic examination which will take some time to occur and further add to the timeframe of the ongoing investigation.
Police are asking the public who may have passed the Hervey Bay industrial estate between 6:30am and 8:30am on Monday morning to come forward with any information or dashcam footage.
Police allege that Mr Williams left the scene of the crime in a White 2020 Prado.
Mr Williams appeared before the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Tuesday 5 April 2022 and was remanded in custody as the investigation is still ongoing. He is scheduled to next appear in the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on 9 June 2022.
