March 21 2022


One of the two bodies found in a remote dam in Queensland on Saturday has been identified by police as 51-year-old Darryl Smith.
The Kingaroy man was found floating in the Gordonbrook Dam in South Burnett, bound to the body of a woman, who is yet to be formally identified.
Police are appealing for information about Mr Smith’s movements after his white Holden commodore Station Wagon was located at the dam on Saturday.
It’s believed that the vehicle was parked at the dam since at least Sunday March 13.
A group of mates on a boys weekend were camping on the banks of the dam when a kayaker found the bodies about 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon.
Camper Gene Knight said the kayaker told them what he’d found.
“He said, ‘I just found two dead bodies up there’,” he said.
“It’s pretty chaotic.”
Queensland Police have said they are not considering the involvement of a third party in relation to the deaths.
Investigations are ongoing.
