A homeless man was killed in Maloney after a fire broke out in the pavilion of a Recreation Ground in the area. However, police believe the man's death may not be accidental.

When emergency personnel got the call concerning a fire at the Recreation Ground at around 8am on Friday, they hardly believed they would be coming to the scene of a suspected homicide.

Fire officers responded to a report of a fire and duly extinguished the blaze.

But it was then they found the burnt body of Anthony Paul. Paul, known to people in the area as Bones, was 51.

The room in which he had been found was locked, prompting investigators to suspect foul play was indeed involved.

Police had to break into the room to get his body out.

But they also noted that his body bore no physical marks of violence.

Mr. Paul's body was taken to the Forensic Science Centre for an autopsy to be done.

C News learnt that Mr. Paul was a father of three and struggled with drug addiction.

He was known for doing odd jobs, including mechanic work.

Investigations into the circumstances surrounding his death are ongoing.
