Robert DoughertyNorth West Telegraph

The circumstances surrounding the death of Damian Seseve Turia, also known as “Black Cat”, whose human remains were found in Port Hedland, are no longer being treated as suspicious.

A statement released by the WA Police today said homicide squad had completed their investigation into the factors involved in the 41-year-old’s death since the discovery of his remains at Lumsden Point, Wedgefield in August last year.

Police had previously appealed for public assistance after human remains were discovered in August, 2017, then more found in February this year – which were identified as being Mr Turia, who was last seen in February 29, 2016.

A report will now be prepared for the District Coroner for Port Hedland.
