Homeless Aussie Man Murdered While He Slept In Sleeping Bag By 'Coward'
Queensland police have launched an investigation after finding the body of a homeless man on the Sunshine Coast.
Detectives believe David Collin, 53, was brutally murdered in a 'violent, unprovoked' attack.
He was discovered at the back of a community centre at Maroochydore earlier this week and was found to have serious head injuries.
Detective Senior Sergeant Daren Edwards from the Sunshine Coast Criminal Investigation Branch said the victim was seen using a carry bag with wheels to transport his possessions so he may have stood out to people passing by.

"Between 6:00pm on Sunday evening to daylight on Monday morning, six people can be seen walking in the vicinity of where Mr Collin slept that night," Detective Senior Sergeant Edwards said.
"There are a couple of people on pushbikes and a few walking who we would like to identify and have come forward.
"Additionally, we would appeal to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious around the Millwell Road Community Centre on Sunday night or early on Monday morning to contact police.
"This appears to have been a very cowardly attack on a vulnerable person and we will continue to pursue all lines of inquiries to find whoever is responsible."
They're asking anyone with information to come forward to help in their investigation.
