Karl Lamblin and Keysborough murder update
Thursday, 23 June 2016
A man has been remanded in custody after being charged with murder following the death of a man at Keysborough on Saturday.
The 32-year-old man of no fixed address appeared at an out of sessions hearing tonight.
The man was remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
Police are appealing for public assistance to help locate Karl Lamblin. Homicide Squad detectives are keen to speak to the 32-year-old following the death of a Keysborough man last Saturday (18 June 2016).
Police responded to reports that a man had been stabbed at an address on Olive Grove just after 7.30pm.
Paramedics attempted to revive the 48-year-old man, but he died at the scene. The man is reported to be Paul O’Donnell, a mechanic and business owner at a premise on Olive Grove, Keysborough.
Paul O’Donnell was found stabbed. CCTV footage showed him walking with his dog shortly before the incident.
Roads in the immediate area were cordoned off while homicide detectives searched for clues.
Investigators now believe Karl Lamblin may be able to assist with their enquiries and urge him to hand himself in.
It is believed he may be frequenting the Lilydale and Mount Evelyn areas.
An image of Karl Lamblin has been released in the hope someone may recognise him or have information on his current whereabouts.
On 16 April Mr O’Donnell posted on social media: “Threatless black bass Stolen from my folks house. Reward offered for its return. Reward for knowledge of Karl Lamblin where abouts too.”
And again on 12 June: “My black beauty has been away but it’s back, no thanks to Mansfieldbuckmarster Karl. Thanks to the people who collected a reward for its return.”
