Bump/Anything new on this case??
Nothing since the last updates in August 2020 where they said the remains were male, and asian.

A bag of bones could have been sitting at the bottom of an embankment in the Royal National Park in Sydney for decades before it was found “by sheer luck”.
Two years after the male human remains were found, police have revealed they have turned to emerging DNA technologies to determine what the unidentified victim may have looked like.
A post-mortem couldn’t determine how the victim died and some of the bones had been degraded after years exposed to the elements, including bushfire.
A forensic anthropologist determined the bones belonged to the same skeleton and a man who was about 175 cm tall and aged between 25 and 40 when he died.
Bomb pulse carbon dating tests were carried out at the University of Waikato in New Zealand and determined the man died sometime between 1985 and 2005.
Bag of bones found by ‘sheer luck’
I wonder if something like this is linked.
Cut-up torso found off Sydney beach may have been drug mule: coroner
is that an ublurred photo of the torso ?
Usually they don't let you see something like that. Like in the contents of a shoe with a foot in it was blurred out.
Might have to look at the Sydney missing persons page for missing Asian males. He could have been from overseas though, a backpacker or involved in the drug trade as suggested above.
