Tasmania Police has thanked people who have come forward with information about a GoPro that was stolen from a fatal crash scene in Launceston on Sunday.
Sergeant Terry Reaney said investigations into the circumstances surrounding the single-motorcycle crash on the corner of Paterson and Wellington streets, which claimed the life of a 28-year-old Kings Meadow man, was ongoing.
The motorcycle was travelling south on Wellington Street when it hit a Suzuki Hatch, which was travelling east on Paterson Street.
Sergeant Reaney said the GoPro footage posted on social media without the family’s permission was causing them unnecessary stress.
