On Friday night, the welfare of an off-duty 23-year-old constable was called into question.
Around 1 a.m. on Saturday, his corpse was discovered in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney.
There don’t seem to be any red flags.
Bankstown Police Area Command had included the constable.
Homicide Squad investigators have launched a critical incident investigation, which will result in a coroner’s report.
