Search for victim's motorcycle

POLICE investigating the alleged murder of a Bilambil man earlier this year have renewed their appeal to find the victim’s missing Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

The remains of 50-year-old Luke Ogilvie were discovered by police after fire destroyed his home in Urliup Road, Bilambil, in the early hours of March 26 this year.

Police from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command, with the assistance of State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad, established Strike Force Daruk to investigate the circumstances surrounding Mr Ogilvie’s death.

Four men, aged 24, 26, 28 and 30, are already before the court charged with his murder.

Mr Ogilvie’s Harley-Davidson motorcycle was stolen during the incident and is still missing.

Detective Inspector Shane Diehm from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command said investigators believed the bike might hold vital evidence.

“We think there are people who know the whereabouts of the motorcycle. I urge them to let us know the bike’s location – they can remain anonymous,” Detective Inspector Diehm said.

The motorcycle is a black Harley-Davidson Superglide with NSW registration UP-401.

Anyone who has seen the bike should immediately contact Strike Force Daruk detectives via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
