A 30-year-old Hampton Park man has now been charged with murder, while a 49-year-old Noble Park man was charged with accessory to murder.

Both men are expected to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Saturday.

A post mortem is under way to formally identify the human remains found at a home in Cyril Grove, Noble Park on Friday night.

Mr Farrell’s disappearance was considered out of character, with family members reporting him missing on June 2.

Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said his thoughts were with Mr Farrell’s family and loved ones after what has “no doubt been a very difficult and traumatic few weeks”.

“This has been yet another complex investigation conducted by detectives from the missing persons squad and the outcome thus far is testament to their commitment,” he said in a statement on Saturday.

“The investigation remains ongoing and again we encourage anyone with information who hasn’t already spoken to police to come forward.”
