Police Hunt For Killers Of Sydney Man Dumped In Lot After 'Cowardly, Targeted' Attack

Police investigating the murder of a Sydney father who was found dead in a vacant lot three months ago are calling on the public to help catch his killers. 

The body of Jamie Phillips, 46, was discovered dumped at the end of Englorie Park Drive in Rosemeadow, in the city's south-west, on October 25.

A post-mortem revealed he died from multiple serious injuries.

Police said the 46-year-old was the victim of a "cowardly" and what they believe to be a targeted attack.

"This was a cowardly and unprovoked crime that has had a devastating effect on the victim's family," Detective Inspector Greg Inger said on Thursday.

"Jamie suffered multiple serious injuries and we believe that more than one offender was involved. We believe it was a targeted attack."

Police have released CCTV images of Jamie taken in the afternoon prior to his murder "in the hope that it will jog someone's memory".

Investigations suggest Phillips was in the vicinity of Rosemeadow and the adjacent suburb of Ambarvale before his death, and was murdered during the evening of October 24 or early on October 25.
