Man extradited from QLD to WA over a death

A man has been charged over the death of Perth man Dean Patrick White who went missing last year

A 45-year-old man has been extradited from Queensland to Perth and charged over the death of Dean Patrick White, whose body was found in a rural camp area in Western Australia more than a year after he vanished.

The man was arrested in Woodford on Friday and appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court where the extradition application was granted.

WA Homicide Squad detectives took the man to the Perth Watch House on Saturday and charged him with interfering with a corpse to hinder an inquiry. The investigation is ongoing.

Mr White, 55, was last known to be in the Quairading area on March 31 last year and his body was found in a camp area north of the Wheatbelt town in April.
