“One was at East Taraka,” Lae Metropolitan Superintendent Anthony Wagambie Jr said.
“A male adult body was found by the local residents. The body was discovered in the early hours of January 1, about 5am.”
Police have not been able to establish its identity yet.
“But from initial enquiries, it may be a homicide case, and he may have been dumped there from a moving vehicle,” said the metropolitan superintendent.
“This will be ascertained when investigations are complete.
“We are calling on witnesses to come forward and assist Police.”
