On 15 May 2022, Mr Avzi Ejupi was found dead in his Kingston home by police having suffered significant head injuries.  

An investigation was launched as the Police were suspicious of the circumstances of Mr Ejupi’s death after discovering his body in the garage of his home. 

Homicide detectives interviewed several people including a number of housemates who resided at the address with Mr Ejupi. The deceased was reported as being well-known to police and the investigation is ongoing as they uncover more evidence including the motive for the murder  

On Monday afternoon, Police arrested and charged Mr Shane Chard, a 54-year-old man from Beenleigh, with the murder of Mr Ejupi.  

The matter was heard in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday 24 May 2022 where Mr Chard did not appear in relation to the matter. It was adjourned to 4 July 2022. 

Police still have not confirmed if a murder weapon has been found, if the injuries to his head were the cause of death or if he had any other injuries. 

At this stage the investigation appears to be ongoing in the matter. 

Murder is a charge under section 302 of the Criminal Code of Queensland and carries the maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
