Police Probe 'Mysterious' Fatal Double Stabbing In QLD
Police investigations are continuing after the stabbing deaths of two men rocked a small north Queensland town.
Tom Davy, 27, and Corey Christensen, 37, died at the side of a street in Alva, south of Townsville, after a fight broke out between a group of people about 12.30am on Monday.
A man is in custody but no one has been charged over the incident.
Locals have recounted seeing body bags on the road, while police labelled the scene bloody and harrowing.
"When you wake up and your daughter asks 'is that a body bag on the side of the road' ... I feel bloody terrible mate," 30-year local Brett Ward told AAP.
"We live in a nice quiet area and when something like this happens it's just f***ing disgusting."

Police believe the fight broke out after a woman, 29, went to a home in Topton Street, followed shortly after by a group of men.
The woman was taken to hospital in Townsville with a non-life threatening shoulder injury and a man has been arrested.
One of the dead men was from the Alva area, while the other was not, police said.
