Man killed in balcony fall

The body of a man was found in the early hours of this morning in the street next to the Bowraville Hotel.

Around 12:50am, two people were walking in Bellmore Avenue, next to the hotel, when they came across the man lying in the street.

They immediately contacted 000, and shortly after ambulance and police officers attended.

On assessment of the man, ambulance officers declared he was deceased.

Police have made a number of inquiries – and it is believed the man fell from the balcony of the hotel.

The reason as to why he fell is circumstantial, and until an autopsy is completed, it will remain unclear exactly what happened.
