He veered off the road about three kilometers away and died as a result of the collision. The death is being treated as suspicious, according to Detective Inspector Chris Ahearn, and police are trying to figure out if Mr. Opacic was hit by another car.
According to the Courier-Mail, authorities are looking into whether Mr. Opacic had past contact with a lady who was released from the jail facility on the same day he died.
Detectives are looking into whether the 28-year-old got into an argument with the woman’s current partner, who was also in the prison.
Mr. Ahearn said, “We believe there may have been an altercation between the deceased and some other people at this location,”
“We’re trying to work out the circumstances of how all these people know each other…whether they knew they were all going to be here at the same time together, what the nature of their discussion was, all of these questions are yet to be answered. We don’t know if he has had contact with another car or what the circumstances were in ending with him coming off his bike.”
Police have spoken with the woman who was released from the detention facility.
Between 9.30 and 10.30 a.m. on Friday, anyone driving on the Nerang Murwillumbah Road between Numinbah Valley and Natural Bridge is encouraged to contact the police.
