Moments earlier a female police negotiator was seen talking on the phone nearby. Their release comes after a close associate of wanted fugitive Rodney Clavell told The Advertiser’s Nigel Hunt that he is armed with a .22 rifle and a cache of ammunition and has vowed to kill police if cornered.
The ex-prison guard first captured headlines back in 2004, when he was shot twice and tasered by police snipers following a massive manhunt in the Adelaide Hills.
He was armed with a shotgun and drove a 12-tonne road grader during the chase, The Advertiser reported. Clavell earned four years in prison for the daring crime.
FUGITIVE Rodney Clavell has been found dead. The South Australian Police Minister Tony Piccolo has confirmed to Parliament this afternoon that Clavell had died.
Police vehicles that had surrounded the building Clavell has been in for more than 12 hours have begun to leave, a further sign the massive police eoperation is over.

It could be argued though, that instead of a high powered semi automatic rifle, he's only got a .22.
