Car linked to Tas murder found in Victoria


A silver Mazda linked to the murder of a young Tasmanian man whose torso was found in bushland more than a week ago has been seized by police in Victoria.

Two people are facing charges over the alleged murder of Jake Daniel Anderson-Brettner, 24, last seen alive in Launceston on August 15.

A torso believed to be Mr Anderson-Brettner's was discovered about 30 kilometres outside Launceston several days after he disappeared.

A car connected to the alleged murder has been seized and searched by police in Victoria, Tasmania Police said in a statement on Monday.

A "significant" amount of ecstasy pills were allegedly found in the car.

A Victorian woman, 57, is assisting police with enquiries.

Meanwhile, investigators are continuing to scour a Launceston rubbish tip for Mr Anderson-Brettner's remains and clues.

Jack Harrison Vincent Sadler, 26, last week fronted court charged with murder, while Gemma Elizabeth Clark, 25, has pleaded not guilty to accessory after the fact.

Police have previously not ruled out further charges in connection to the case.
