A GEELONG outlaw bikie enforcer believed to have fled the state after rough justice from within his own ranks is being mourned by his Facebook friends.
However, police do not believe Tasman Marell, a former member of the Black Uhlans, is dead.
A police source said Marell was the Black Uhlan's sergeant-at-arms but about 10 days ago was booted out of the gang then taken to his home where he was allegedly bashed following accusations he owed large sums of money.
"He was then set-upon, handcuffed with plastic ties and bashed by about four members. He was severely bashed and as a result it's believed he has done a runner," the police source said.
"Marell was the one deciding when to go to war and what discipline would be dished out."
Marell wrote on his Facebook page on June 28, the day of the alleged bashing, at 10.30pm: "To all the mother ... that set me up I am coming back for you all. You took my life now I am coming for anything that you love."
