Two men have now been arrested following the execution of search warrants at two properties on Wednesday morning.
A 42-year-old man and 31-year-old man were arrested about 6am on Wednesday, both charged with murder.
Moradian was jailed in 2011 for his role in the so-called “Golden Gun” drug ring, which imported at least 200kg of cocaine into Australia.
His crime was motivated by “personal profit and greed”, a judge claimed.
The proceeds were used to deck out his Pennant Hills mansion — which had been nicknamed the “Versace Palace”.

At least nine shootings have taken place in Sydney since Moradian’s alleged murder.
In July, the city was rocked by five shootings in as many days.
A month later, a teenager was shot in a drive-by shooting in Wetherill Park.
A man in his 20s was then shot in Bidwill on September 10.
Last week, two men were shot in two separate incidents in Campsie and Blackett.
Task Force Magnus was established in July as a policing strategy to target and disrupt gun-related and violent crime, and to investigate links between recent organised criminal activity in Sydney.
Its investigations remain ongoing.
