Homicide Squad detectives have charged a man with murder following an investigation into the stabbing death of another man at Sanctaury Point earlier this year.
About 8pm on Sunday, July 25, emergency services were called to the Palm Beach Caravan Park on Ethel Street at Sanctuary Point, following reports of a stabbing.
Upon arrival, officers entered a cabin and found 49-year-old Sanctuary Point man, David McArthur, with a single stab wound to his chest.
Officers attempted CPR; however, Mr McArthur could not be revived and died at the scene.
Initial inquiries were conducted by officers from South Coast Police District before detectives from the State Crime Command's Homicide Squad took carriage of the investigation under Strike Force Frawley.
That included detectives launching a public appeal in the Shoalhaven last week, where they asked anyone with any information to come forward.
Acting on information, Homicide Squad detectives, assisted by officers from South Coast Police District, coordinated a search of waters around the Sanctuary Point Boat Ramp last Wednesday.
Police also released CCTV footage of the area.
Following inquiries, detectives attended a correctional facility at Silverwater about 8.30am on Wednesday, October 20 and charged a 39-year-old Nowra man with murder.
He was remanded in custody and is due to appear at Nowra Local Court today.
Investigations under Strike Force Frawley continue.
