A POST-MORTEM is yet to unravel the mystery behind the death of West Wyalong man Darren Greenfield.
The 44-year-old father of one was found dead in his George Bland Avenue home on Tuesday – a number of days after his death – sparking a police investigation and the formation of Strike Force Anchow.
Griffith detectives have been swamped with calls from locals about the final days of Mr Greenfield’s life and are piecing it together before proceeding to a homicide investigation.
Mr Greenfield has been described as a quiet man, who worked as a site manager at GrainCorp.
West Wyalong’s Top Town Tavern was a favourite haunt of Mr Greenfield’s and his workmates, who have all been offered counselling by the company.
“They’re all a bit devastated,” Top Town owner Ralph Nicholson said.
“He was a quiet bloke, never hurt anybody.
“It’s surprised everyone; it’s something you don’t think about.”
A post-mortem was performed on Thursday but is yet to shed light on the exact cause of death.
Crime manager of Griffith Local Area Command Detective Inspector Paul Smith said inquiries into the matter were continuing.
“We will continue to treat this death as potentially suspicious until we have a confirmed cause of death,” he said.
“In the meantime, we continue to urge anyone who may have information that could assist the investigation to come forward.
“We would particularly call for anyone aware of Mr Greenfield’s movements last weekend to come forward.”
Anyone with information should call Griffith Police on 6969 4299.
