South West Mercedes-Benz SUV owners can expect a knock on the door from detectives over the coming weeks as WA police step up their investigation into a Perth homicide.

Detectives are investigating the homicide of Dejan Dimitrovski in Balga on August 4 and will be visiting the owners of all 2006-2013 white Mercedes-Benz models ML 350, ML 320 and ML 280 across the State.

Homicide Squad Det. Sgt Brian Connelly said the vehicles were similar in appearance to a white Mercedes-Benz identified by CCTV in the Dallington Crescent, Balga area at the time of Mr Dimitrovski’s death.

“We will be seeking the assistance of the owners of these vehicles in a number of ways,” Det. Connelly said.

“This will include detectives taking external photographs of their cars and asking them to answer a simple questionnaire.

“The questionnaire will predominantly focus on asking owners to verify the locations of their vehicles on the evening of the homicide and who was driving the vehicle at the time.”

The Mercedes-Benz owners are not required to take any action, but will be contacted by Homicide Squad detectives during the next week.
