Police Launch Appeal For Person Of Interest In Murder Case
The Queensland Police have launched an appeal for their sole person of interest in relation to the murder of a man in Murrumba Downs this week.
The police would like to speak to Lee Matthew Hillier - who is well known to the force - about the death of Nathan Frazer.
A spokesperson made clear that if a member of the public sights Hillier not to approach as he has a propensity for violence.
The man is 180cm tall, solid build, heavily tattooed and is known to be an associate of the deceased.
A 19-year-old woman has been assisting police with her version of events of the incident.
It is said all three people were known to each other.
Hillier is known to have an extensive background of charges and has spent time behind bars for those matters.
The victim, named in media reports as former soldier Nathan Frazer, died in the middle of Blyth Road at Murrumba Downs about 5.45am on Thursday.
Relatives have paid tribute to Mr Frazer, an indigenous man who died from wounds to his his face and chest.
"He was a strong Bidjara man; knew how to track, hunt, clean and cook game in the traditional way," cousin Stephen Passmore has told The Courier-Mail.
"(He) spoke our language. (There's) nothing he wouldn't do for friends or family."
Another cousin said Mr Frazer, who was in his 40s, adored his three children.
Police believe Mr Frazer was in a car before a young woman found him lying on the road with horrific injuries.
The 19-year-old woman called for help but Mr Frazer was dead by the time they arrived in the no-through road that runs between the back of a convenience store and a row of houses.
