An agitated man who arrived at the scene repeatedly asked about the name of the deceased before being warned by police to move on.

Nearby resident Joanne Bonham told reporters of her shock at the "crazy" turn of events.

"I heard a bit, came out and saw all the police cars," Ms Bonham said.

"It was all taped up, crazy... I've never seen anything like this," she said.
