Detective Senior Sergeant Shane O’Connell told reporters, adding that two friends found Ham’s body.
Lead singer Colin Hay met Ham when they were seniors in high school and has released the following statement in light of this tragic report:
“We played in a band and conquered the world together. I love him very much. He’s a beautiful man. The saxophone solo on ‘Who Can It Be Now’ was the rehearsal take. We kept it, that was the one. He’s here forever.”
