A man has been charged with murder after another man died in the state’s west yesterday.

Emergency services were called to a home on Boori Street, Peak Hill, north of Parkes, just after 11am yesterday (Sunday 12 March 2022), after concerns were raised for the welfare of the occupant.

Officers attached to Central West Police District attended, along with NSW Ambulance paramedics, and located the body of a man inside the property. He is yet to be formally identified.

A crime scene has been established, which is being forensically examined.

Detectives have established Strike Force Hattersley to investigate the circumstances surrounding the man’s death, which is being treated as suspicious.

Following inquiries, a man – aged 38 – was arrested at Peak Hill Police Station later that afternoon where he was charged with murder.

He was refused bail to appear at Parkes Local Court today (Monday 13 March 2023).

Investigations under Strike Force Hattersley are ongoing.
