Police have found the body of a man suspected of stabbing a father and son at a Sydney construction site last week.
NSW Police confirmed to Yahoo News Australia the man was found in Sydney’s south on Sunday morning.
“At 8.30am emergency services were called to a park off Apsley Place, Taren Point, after the body of a man was located,” a spokesperson said in a statement to Yahoo News Australia.
The ABC has identified him as 49-year-old Russian national Vladimir Kondakov, the man NSW police were looking for in relation to the fatal stabbing of a 76-year-old man in St Peters in Sydney’s inner west on Wednesday.
The NSW Police spokesperson said police have established a crimes scene, however the death is not being treated as suspicious. A report is being prepared for the coroner.
Property developer Albert Metledge died at the St Peters construction site after he was stabbed on Wednesday afternoon.
Mr Metledge’s 33-year-old son Antony was also stabbed and was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital where he underwent surgery.
Police believed Kondakov and Mr Metledge knew each other and Inspector Chad Deegenaars told reporters on Wednesday part of the police investigation involved “finding out what the disagreement was”.
“It doesn't appear to be a random attack,” Inspector Deegenaars said.
Following the stabbing, police established a large-scale search to find Kondakov, who they believe managed too hitch a ride to Rockdale.
