ACT Policing homicide detectives have interviewed the owner of a vehicle interest in relation to the murder of Evatt man Andrew Carville and say they can’t rule him out as a suspect in the investigation.
They’ve also asked members of the public with dashcam or bodycam footage taken in the Majura area earlier this month to assist them with the case.
Mr Carville’s body was found at Majura on November 19. He was last seen alive on November 4.

The vehicle of interest, a 1986 cream-coloured Toyota LandCruiser recovered from the Molonglo Gorge mid-month, was seen at Mr Carville’s residence shortly before his disappearance. The owner of the ute has been subject to a number of forensic procedures and cannot be elimated as a suspect in the investigation at this time, according to ACT Policing.
Police have again called for information from public on the case, particularly in relation to sightings of the cream ute in the Majura area. They believe bodycam or dashcam footage from motorists and cyclists travelling in the Majura area between November 4 and 15 could provide a breakthrough in the murder investigation.
Detective Sergeant Donna Parsons and Detective Senior Constable Yoran Wolfkamp of ACT Policing’s Homicide team (pictured top) said today that Mr Carville (pictured above) was last seen by a number of people who were assisting an ex-housemate move property from his residence.
“Police have subsequently executed a number of search warrants, with several items of interest being seized for forensic examination,” Detective Sergeant Parsons said.
She said police had identified a number of persons of interest including “residents and those persons assisting”.
