The man was identified late on Saturday afternoon, but police are still speaking with his family before releasing his name.

Two Capalaba residents found a man’s body dumped in a drainage ditch in Degen Road just before 1pm on Saturday as they left their property.

Detective Inspector Owen Elloy told reporters the man had met a “horrible, violent death” but declined to release much information about the crime.

Police Forensic examiners spent the afternoon at the scene, examining the man’s body andlooking for weapons and any identification.

The body – with extensive injuries – was found in a roadside drain in Degen Road in a rural acreage section of Capalaba.

While there are homes in the rural acreage area, they are on large blocks of land and back from the street front.

The couple who found the body are still helping Capalaba police with the investigation.

Inspector Elloy said police hadset up a command centre at Capalaba Police Stationto investigate the man’s death.

Police on Saturday afternoon asked residents if they had heard anything on Friday evening or early Saturday morning.

“They have door-knocked the area, but still not come up with anything to identify him,” a police spokesman said on Saturday afternoon.

Police would not reveal if the man had any identifying information on him when he was found by the two Capalaba residents.

Inspector Elloy gave few details of the likely cause of death, or the extent and location of injuries on the body, referring to the death several times as as “violent”.

He said police would like to talk to anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious near Degen Road at Capalaba.
