A man has been charged with murder following the death of another man in Peak Hill - 100km northwest of Orange - yesterday.

"Emergency services were called to a home on Boori Street, Peak Hill, north of Parkes, just after 11am yesterday (Sunday 12 March 2022), after concerns were raised for the welfare of the occupant," said police.

"Officers attached to Central West Police District attended, along with NSW Ambulance paramedics, and located the body of a man inside the property. He is yet to be formally identified."

Police said a crime scene had been established. It is being forensically examined.

Detectives established Strike Force Hattersley to investigate the circumstances surrounding the man’s death, which is being treated as suspicious.

"Following inquiries, a man – aged 38 – was arrested at Peak Hill Police Station later that afternoon where he was charged with murder," said police.

He was refused bail to appear at Parkes Local Court today (Monday March 13, 2023).

Investigations under Strike Force Hattersley are ongoing.
