Police in Australia to re-investigate the death of young Ethiopian man
The controversial case of a young Ethiopian man discovered dead in the Maribyrnong River in 2011 is being reinvestigated by police, who are making a fresh appeal for witnesses.
The body of Michael Atakelt, 22, was found in the Maribyrnong River on 7 July, 2011, after he had been missing for 11 days.
The Ethiopian community has been critical of the police investigation into the death, including the belief that Mr Atakelt entered the Maribyrnong River at Smithfield bridge in Footscray.
That means his body would have somehow travelled four kilometres against the river's current to Ascot Vale, where it was found
R.I.P Young man! the ALMIGHTY knows what happened to the poor ethiopian. We HABESHAS are good! only

It is unfortunate and tragic. He is someone’s son, brother, sister and family member. I hope the police will find out what really had happened to this young man.
