Police are investigating after the death of a man who was found injured in an industrial area in Melbourne's west on Thursday morning.
A crime scene has been set up outside MaxiTRANS, a semi-trailer supplier on Boundary Road in Derrimut, where the injured man was found. He was given medical assistance but he died at the scene, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said.
The man was found several kilometres from another crime scene established late on Wednesday night where police were called to reports that a man was seen lying in the middle of East Derrimut Crescent just after 11.15pm.
By the time police arrived at the scene the man was no longer on the road, but a number of personal items were found, and officers from the dog squad found traces of blood in the surrounding streets.
It is not yet clear if the man found on Thursday morning is the same man who was reported to have been lying on road last night.
It comes after 23-year-old call centre manager Celeste Manno was killed in her Mernda home and a 50-year-old man was found dead at a Greensborough property in unrelated incidents on Monday morning.
Police have called on any members of the public who may have heard or seen anything around East Derrimut Crescent, West Court or Derrimut Drive on Wednesday night or Thursday morning to come forward.
Anyone with dashcam footage from the area is also urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
