Two others sought over Aus murders

Detectives who charged six people, including three New Zealand-born men, with murdering a missing Queensland pair continue to search for two others in connection to the alleged crime.

The hunt for Queensland friends Cory Breton and Iuliana Triscaru took a grim turn on Thursday after the remains of two people, believed to be the duo, were found inside a metal box in a Logan dam.

Davy Malu Junior Taiao, 21, Stou Daniels, 21, Trent Michael Thrupp, 22, Webbstar Latu, 31, Tuhirangi-Thomas Tahiata, 24 and Ngatokoona Maretti, 36, briefly faced court on Thursday morning, charged with murdering the pair who haven't been seen in over a fortnight.

Three of the accused murderers, Latu, Taiao and Daniels were born in New Zealand.

Police are also keen to speak to two more men, a 32-year-old from Crestmead and a 25-year-old from Kingston, who they believe have knowledge of the alleged crime.

"They will know who they are ... we would encourage them to come and see us now," Detective Inspector Dave Hutchinson said.

The victims and all six suspects were part of a loose social group, and although the motive for the alleged killings is unclear, police believe drugs were likely involved.
