Investigators believe a small orange, gold or bronze Nissan Micra hatchback was seen in the area prior to the discovery of the remains in Cedar Pocket, about 17 kilometres east of Gympie.

The car was seen by witnesses near the Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach areas on September 19 last year before the body was found at 6.27pm that evening.

The driver of the car has been described as a middle-aged Caucasian woman of medium build with blonde/brown hair.

The torso was found decapitated, with both arms removed below the elbow.

Detectives are yet to identify the victim, but DNA testing on the remains has revealed that the deceased is a man aged between 40 and 80 years old, who was likely to be more than 183 centimetres tall with a solid build.

Forensic examinations showed the man had been taking prescription medication named Quinine. Earlier this year, police said they were trying to contact GPs and pharmacies to find further clues on the man’s identity.

Police also found a burnt beach towel at the scene.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at crimestoppers南京夜网.au.
