Hunt Continues For Brisbane Murderer
Queensland police officers are doorknocking a Brisbane neighbourhood as they continue to search for the person who killed father-of-four Abdul Basith.
Scientific and forensic investigators remain at the Kuraby home after the 35-year-old's body was found in the front yard by police early on Wednesday morning.
The SES is spending Thursday combing nearby bushland and the neighbourhood in an attempt to find the murder weapon.
Officers are also doorknocking the area and leaving business cards for those who are not at home.
Investigators believe Mr Basith's death was not random and are looking at whether his killer may have tampered with the power supply to his house to draw him outside early on Wednesday.
Detective Superintendent Tony Fleming said police thought the address was the "focus of the offender".
"In terms of what motivated someone to commit such a crime - we are not certain of that yet. We want to bring the person who did this to justice," he said on Thursday.
Det Fleming maintained police did not believe the murder was racially or religiously motivated.
Investigators want to speak to anyone who has dash cam footage or was in the area near Saint George St from 10.30pm on Tuesday to 1am on Wednesday.
Police are also eager to talk to anyone who travelled by train through Kuraby Station about that time.
Mr Basith's family remain traumatised by the murder.
It's understood his wife and four children were inside the home while the killing took place.
