Two people have been charged with murder after a man’s body was found at an abandoned quarry in southeast Queensland.

The two men – aged 22 and 19 – have been accused of luring Jai Gray to a Glass House Mountains property, north of Brisbane, before stabbing him multiple times.

Gray, 25, had been missing for more than a week before his body was discovered at the quarry near Mount Ngungun on Tuesday.

“This is a callous, brutal, unprovoked attack on a young person that posed no threats to anyone,” Detective Inspector David Harbison told reporters on Wednesday.

“Police and Jai’s relatives are struggling to comprehend the unjustified actions of those persons responsible.”

Police said the three men were known to each other.

Harbison said Gray was a well-natured young man.

“This rocks the entire community,” he said.

“He’s a well-loved member of the community … it’s a senseless act.”

Police said the two men were due to appear in Caboolture Magistrates Court on Thursday.
