Man found dead in coal wagon at Port of Brisbane
Police believe a man's body spent 11 hours in a coal wagon travelling from an inland mine before it was found at Brisbane's port some 350 kilometres away.
Detectives investigating the discovery at the Port of Brisbane described the death as "unusual to say the least" but it was not being treated as murder.
Detective Inspector Owen Elloy said Queensland Rail workers found the man's body in the doors of a coal wagon about midday on Wednesday, after the train delivered its load of coal from Chinchilla, about four hours north-west of the city.
"At this stage, an investigation is being undertaken and it is being treated as suspicious on the grounds that it is unusual to say the least," the Bayside Crime Group detective said.
Inspector Elloy said the investigation would go to the coroner, but it was clearly a case of misadventure and there was nothing to suggest anything untoward had happened.
"Queensland Rail workplace practices have been absolutely fabulous so far as investigation processes are concerned," he said.
"They have numerous cameras which have left no doubt as to what has transpired."
Inspector Elloy said it appeared the man entered the container in Chinchilla.
Could have been a Ballchinian from Chinchilla..
