Comanchero bikie and Monstr Clothing founder Shane Ross has been found dead in a Gold Coast park a week after being convicted over a car fraud syndicate.
The 36-year-old had been missing since Friday night, when his friend Cameron Martin died in a horrific car crash in Tullebudgera.
Ross’ body was found in bushland in Martin Sheils Park in Burleigh Heads at 1.30pm on Monday, around one kilometre from Martin’s crash site.
Police believe his death was suspicious and say his body has been there for a few days.

9News reported that the pair were seen drinking together at the Pimpama Tavern just two hours before Martin’s body was found in the wreckage of a Mercedez Benz on Tallebudgera Creek Road.
Acting Superintendent Brendan Smith told reporters at the scene that police are treating Ross’ death as suspicious.
‘I can say who we believe this person is and the victim of the fatal are friends and were seen together on Friday,’ Supt Smith said, as reported by the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Both men were motor sport enthusiasts with ties to gym and motor sport brand Monstr Clothing.

Police remain in Martin Sheils Park on Monday afternoon, trawling the site for links between both men’s deaths.
‘That is certainly one line of inquiry we are going to run out — it would be coincidental if both incidents aren’t connected,’ Supt Smith said.
Ross was recently convicted for his role in an alleged luxury car fraud syndicate and was sentenced to an 18-month intensive corrections order.
Police claim that Ross and his alleged conspirators used false documentation to secure loans for luxury cars before selling the vehicles for profit.
