Gold Coast storm chaser Glen Tipler remains under police guard in hospital following the suspicious house fire that killed his former partner 21-year-old Adam Marriott.
Thick smoke forced firefighters to wear breathing apparatus while attending the blaze at Tipler’s rented townhouse on Wednesday night. They later found Adam Marriott dead inside the residence.
Afterwards, 38-year-old Glen Tipler turned up at a work colleague’s property in Redlands. He was suffering from significant burns.
Acting Detective Inspector Mark Procter of Coomera CIB said police subsequently took Tipler into custody.
“QAS (Queensland Ambulance Service) were called to that address and that person was subsequently taken into police custody.”
He said that police had not yet laid charges.
“We have a male person assisting with inquiries and being treated for significant burns to his body.
“We’re treating it as a suspicious death.”
F_cking narcissist dog
Tipler recently complained on Facebook about a ‘f_cking narcissist dog in my life that thought they could try and use me again and get away with it’.
The self-employed roofer regularly posts storm videos and photos on social media. He reportedly told police he tried to stop his ‘mate’ from committing suicide
