Police search area where teen's body was found

INVESTIGATIONS into the death of 18-year-old Wandal teen Kurtis West continued over the weekend.

Mr West was found by a passing motorist on Jambin- Dakenba Rd near the railway line at Argoon, which is north of Biloela, just before 4am on Friday.

On Saturday police and SES volunteers searched roadways, bush tracks and the area surrounding Jambin Dakenba Rd, Bongers Ln and Argoon Hwy while detectives conducted further investigations into the incident.

Police were unable to confirm whether a post mortem examination on Mr West's body had yet been carried out, which may provide further evidence in relation to his death.

Police investigations have confirmed Mr West was at the Jambin Pub on the night of his death.

Reports on television news on Friday night said he had been involved in a fight at the pub, but police were unable to confirm that or whether a fight was the cause of his death.

There was no further information available at this time. The death is being treated as suspicious.

Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Moon said police were appealing for information from anyone who saw Mr West at the pub, in the Jambin shop area, or walking or even in a vehicle along Jambin-Dakenba Rd.

Anyone who has information that could help police with this matter should phone Crime Stoppers anonymously 24 hours a day on 1800 333 000 or go to www.crimestoppers.com.au.
