Australian police have appealed to the public to help them identify a distinctive red Ford Falcon car, which they believe may be connected to the death of a 25-year-old Indian man whose partially-charred body was found in New South Wales.

Ranjodh Singh’s body was found beside Wilga Road in Willbriggie in south-west NSW on December 29. The incident was reported earlier this week.

Singh had been living at Wagga Wagga and was visiting Griffith at the time of his death.

Griffith Local Area Command crime manager Detective Inspector Paul Smith said police had received significant information from the public, local media reported.

The police want to hear from anyone who may have information about a car seen in the Griffith and Wagga areas around the time of Singh’s death.

“Police are currently following a number of lines of inquiry into Mr Singh’s death and are interested in hearing from anyone who may have witnessed a red 1996 model Ford Falcon with a spoiler on the back, in and around the Griffith and Wagga Wagga areas in the days before and after the discovery of Singh’s body,” Mr. Smith said.

“We would like to hear from anyone who has information about the whereabouts of the car and any information about any possible occupants.”
