TREVOR RAYMOND KING
On Tuesday 5 February 2019, Trevor Raymond King was present at a North Plympton address where he was unlawfully detained and seriously assaulted with a baseball bat. He had the back of his hands, his back and the hair on his head burnt with a blow torch. His feet were cut with scalpels and doused with bleach. He was made to clean up the scene of the assault and was only released when he promised to pay the offenders $50,000.
Mr. King initially reported the incident to police and four people were arrested and charged. In August 2019, prior to trial, Mr. King withdrew the charges so no person was ever convicted.
On 4 January 2020, Mr. King was located deceased in the water at West Lakes with his death being initially determined as suicide or misadventure. A toxicology report has since been received which indicates a high level of GHB (fantasy) in his system to a degree it would have rendered him unconscious and potentially cause his death.
Police are investigating Mr. King’s death as a murder.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or on-line
