Police have identified the human remains found floating in a wheelie bin in Glen Brook dam east of Perth.

Investigators have not revealed the man's name but said he was a Perth man born in 1969, making him 51 years old when he met his untimely death.

Sources told 9News the man had a history with police.

Homicide detectives don't believe the man's death was the work of an experienced killer.

"Remains in a bin at a picnic site in a dam is highly unusual," Acting Inspector Sean Wright said.

Crime scene analysis suggests the bin would have sunk to the dam floor initially, but not for long.

People visiting the park first noticed an "awful smell" before spotting the wheelie bin.
