Authorities have confirmed that the body found in an underground water tank on Peak Rd in Minvalara, southeast of Orroroo belongs to Robert Atkins.

After discovering the remains in September they believed at the time it was Atkins but forensics hadn’t confirmed. It was confirmed last week that it was him.

Detectives were investigating a series of deaths related to drug gangs when they made the discovery.

Sean Phypers, 32, has been arrested and charged with Atkins’ murder and unlawful detention.

The current owners of the property where the body was found have no connection to the case.
