Headless torso crime scene search continues

EVIDENCE was loaded into a removalist truck at the Tanawha property of murdered man George Gerbic yesterday, as the methodical search for clues continued.

The Main Creek Rd property has been a crime scene for nine days now, as detectives scour the area for any evidence of foul play.

State Emergency Services volunteers and police are also looking for the 66-year-old man's remains.

The popular Sunshine Coast businessman's body was found butchered by the side of Cedar Pocket Rd in September last year.

Only the headless torso was found.

After 10 months of painstaking investigations, police identified Mr Gerbic, and charged his partner Lindy Yvonne Williams, 56, with his murder and with interfering with a corpse.

Police are yet to explain why Mr Gerbic was never reported missing.

It is believed friends were under the impression Mr Gerbic was overseas.

His two sons, Simon and Justin, remembered their dad in a media statement earlier this week.

A Police Media spokesman said the Tanawha property is expected to be a crime scene for "several more days".
