Echuca man linked to hunt for missing wheelie bin

POLICE are appealing to the public for any information about a wheelie bin that has been linked to an ongoing investigation into the suspicious disappearance of Adam Troy Williams.

The 30-year-old Camberwell man was last seen in December last year at his Burke Road home.

Police spent yesterday at Mordialloc Creek searching for any trace of a wheelie bin they believe holds forensic value.

Five men and one woman – including a 29-year-old man from Echuca – have been charged over Mr Williams’ disappearance.

Last month, police said Mr Williams died following a serious assault at a friend’s boarding house.

They believe his body was stuffed in a wheelie bin and collected by a garbage truck which dumped it among the rubbish at the Clayton South Regional Landfill.

Police have conducted a preliminary assessment of the tip but, because of the length of time since the disposal and the limited information about where the actual disposal site was, they do not believe they will be able to find Mr Williams’ body.

Detectives say the wheelie bin they are looking for was moved during the Clean Up Australia Day campaign between March 4 and March 6 and was placed in the car park off Governor Road on the northern side of the creek.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.crimestoppers.com.au
