A GETAWAY car at the centre of a Sydney murder probe has been seized in Moree.
Homicide detectives have been in the town as part of their investigation after the discovery of the station wagon on the weekend.
The white Holden station wagon was seized on Sunday after officers tracked it down about midday. The owner of the car, a 49-year-old man, is "assisting police with inquiries", police have confirmed.
The state's homicide squad have been investigating the bashing death of 42-year-old Vergel Velasquez. He died in a Sydney hospital a day after being found with severe head injuries in a stairwell of a Girraween unit block on December 30.
Strike Force Brallo has been piecing together the murder and had a breakthrough in the case when they raided two units in Granville on April 16. They seized a number of goods in the raids before tracking the car - which they believe was used in the bashing - to Moree.
On Tuesday, homicide detectives released CCTV vision of six men who used the Holden at a Girraween service station about 3.40pm on December 30.
Homicide Squad Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty urged the public to look closely at the CCTV footage. He said someone knows something about the incident and believes the vision holds vital clues about the events in the lead up to Mr Velasquez's murder.
"Police are particularly interested in speaking with anyone in the community that may be able to assist investigators identify the men in the vision," he said.
"As a result of our inquiries so far, detectives travelled to Moree at the weekend and have seized the vehicle - a white Holden station wagon - shown in the CCTV.
"Mr Velasquez was an innocent victim in this attack - he was left with injuries so severe that he sadly lost his life 24 hours later, on what should have been a day of celebration being New Year's Eve."
Investigations under Strike Force Brallo continue, and anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
"As our inquiries into his death continue, we are calling on the public to come forward with any information they may have to help us give answers to the Velasquez family," Detective Doherty said.
