    The 43-year-old Coburg man was found dead in Dunstan Reserve in Brunswick West on Monday morning.

    “The homicide squad is investigating Paul’s death and it is being treated as suspicious,” police said in a statement on Wednesday.

    Mr Costa was found wearing an Ermenegildo Zegna suit, valued up to $5000, and expensive dress shoes, and there was a blood trail leading from the car park to the body.

    His father Alex said he thought his son may have been going on a date.

    “We don’t know why he was wearing his suit and dress shoes,” he told the Herald Sun.

    Nearby resident Andrew Riddell told the Herald Sun he found the man after going into his backyard.

    “I went into my backyard to have a look into the park — then I saw the man lying there about 2m in front of me,” he said.

    “He was just lying there all alone with the suit jacket pulled up over his head, completely uncovered.

    “It looked like he was put there.”

    A NEW mystery in the murder of the man in the expensive suit has emerged.
    Paul Costa was found dead at the end of a trail of blood wearing a Ermenegildo Zegna suit, which can cost up to $5000, in a Melbourne park on Monday morning.
    The 43-year-old was discovered at Dunstan Reserve in Brunswick West.
    The Herald Sun reports there’s been a new twist in the mysterious crime, with a dog walker spotting Mr Costa’s car in a quiet street in Coburg, in Melbourne’s north.
    The dog walker saw it less than an hour after Mr Costa’s body was discovered three kilometres away.
    “It’s been there for days,” he said.

    Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen McIntyre said the man was thought to have been assaulted in the car park, possibly with a knife, sometime between 4pm on Sunday and Monday morning.

    Brunswick West park killing: Family of Paul Costa pleads for answers

    Mr Costa said his youngest of four children, who was a father of four himself, was a gentle giant.

    "He would never hurt anyone; he would not even hurt a bird," he said.

    Cathy said her brother was soft-hearted and didn't deserve to be killed the way he was.

    He was found under a tree, near the back fences of homes along Everett Street, at the end of a 50-metre trail of blood from the car park off Peacock Street.

    Homicide squad Detective Senior Sergeant Steve McIntyre said Mr Costa appeared to have been attacked with a weapon, possibly a knife. It is believed he had defensive stab wounds on his arms.

    "He's been assaulted, we would expect in the car park," Senior Sergeant McIntyre said.

    A neighbour heard an "angry yell" between 8pm and 10pm on Sunday. It is unclear if that was connected to the death.
