Body of man found inside roof

A man has been found dead inside a roof cavity in Sydney’s south-west.

Around 10.20pm yesterday, Sunday 15 November 2015, police were called to a property on Cammarlie Street, Panania, after reports a man may have electrocuted himself inside a building.

Officers attended the scene and located the body of a man inside the roof cavity of an abandoned home. A ladder and tools were also found at the scene.


Initial inquiries indicate the man may have electrocuted himself after cutting a live wire within the roof cavity.

The man has not yet been identified, so investigators are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
