A Launceston man in his 50s, his 21-year-old son, who lived in Hobart, and a 30-year-old friend from Launceston, were
found dead in their caravan at Miena, near Little Pine Lagoon, on Saturday morning.

Their bodies were discovered by the trio's hunting companions, a man and his nine-year-old son, who had spent the night
in a tent nearby.

Police believe the men, who were camping in the Central Highlands of Tasmania, Australia's island state 149 miles (240km) south of the mainland, were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning.
