27 JANUARY 2015

– A body found in a Noble Park street has been identified at Springvale man Peter Danh.

The body of 36-year-old Mr Danh was found in Prior Rd, Noble Park, at 10.20pm last night.

Police have appealed for help from anyone who knows of his whereabouts before that time.

Emergency services were called after a motorist found the Mr Danh’s body.

Homicide squad Det-Sgt Graham Ross earlier said police initially believed he was the victim of a hit-run, but have since ruled that out.

He said the victim had head injuries, although the full extent of his injuries was not known.

A nearby resident heard arguing and car doors opening and closing shortly before 10.20pm.

“We don’t have any direct witnesses other than the man who heard the voices outside,” Sgt Ross said.

“We would be appealing to anyone in the Noble Park area that has heard any cars driving away very fast or any tyre screeching to contact Crime Stoppers.”

Passer-by Stevin stopped to help when he saw the body last night.

He said the man appeared to have a mark from a car tyre on his face.

“I checked for the pulse and then ambulance arrived,” he said.

“I initially thought he was beaten up but saw the amount of blood and the track mark on his face and realised it was a bit more than just a fight.”

Stevin said “reality was sinking in” for him.

“I’m still breathing, so I guess that’s a bonus.”

Sgt Ross said the body could have been dumped in the street.

“That is a possibility – that is one scenario we have to look at,” he said.

“We have to keep an open mind with these type of investigations.”

A post-mortem will be carried out today.

Police will also review footage from a nearby neighbour’s security cameras.

Nearby residents have been left shocked by the incident.

Emina Vhadovic’s husband was home last night and heard police sirens.

“I’m a shocked because this street is very quiet,” she said.

“I am worried because I’m living … here in a quiet street.”

Resident Jack Pham said the street was calm when he returned home about 8.30pm.

“It is a safe and peaceful neighbourhood,” he said.

“It is a mixture of oldies and young people.”
