Video footage of a man and woman being bashed in a vicious attack at a Melbourne karaoke bar has been released.

The couple in their 20s were drinking at the Elizabeth Street bar early on January 11 when they were assaulted.

Footage of the attack shows a 25-year-old man being punched and stomped on by a group of men until he was unconcious on the floor.

The man’s girlfriend can be seen trying to protect him on the ground.

A man is then seen to grab her by the hair and throw her to the floor, before she is punched and kicked by the group.

Shortly before the brawl, the couple was sitting at a table with their attackers.

Detective Senior Constable Matt Folvig said it was unclear what started it, but words were exchanged beforehand.

“Apparently they’ve just said something that was disagreed with and they’ve just turned on the pair,” he said.

Police released images and CCTV footage in the hope of identifying the people involved.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

The former partner of Darwin mother Carlie Sinclair has been arrested on suspicion of her murder, sources have told the ABC.

Danny Deacon was arrested today after being seen close to where a body, thought to be Ms Sinclair’s, was found near Berry Springs, in Darwin’s rural area.

Police Commissioner John McRoberts would not name the man they had arrested, but said he had recently returned from interstate.

“I will say at this stage that he was known to Ms Sinclair and that’s as far as I can take it,” he said.

“The man that has been arrested left the Northern Territory soon after the disappearance of Ms Sinclair and has only just returned, in fact less than 24 hours ago.

Mr Deacon was the last known person to see Ms Sinclair, when she left a business in the Darwin suburb of Parap.

Mr Deacon told investigators the pair had had an argument while having a drink, and she walked off.

Body found in shallow grave

Mr McRoberts said a body, believed to be Ms Sinclair’s, had been found at Berry Springs, in Darwin’s rural area.

Mr McRoberts described the arrest as a “significant development”.

“Earlier today, as a result of a man being seen in the Berry Springs area, he has been arrested and we are now holding him in custody until the results are known of a comprehensive crime scene analysis which is currently underway,” Mr McRoberts said.

“Based on the information we have, including comments made by the man, we are very confident that we know where Carlie is, although it will take us some hours, or possibly not even until tomorrow to be able to tell her family that we have, in fact, confirmed her identity and where she is.

Mr McRoberts said he expected there would be more details from the crime scene later today.

“Based on all the evidence that has been compiled, based on the fact that we now have a man in custody, based on the fact that we now have what is clearly a gravesite at Berry Springs, we are very confident that we have solved the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Ms Sinclair,” he said.

Ms Sinclair, 36, has not been seen since the evening of July 18, 2013, with police mounting a widespread publicity campaign to find her and offering a reward of $250,000 for information.

Mr McRoberts said information from members of the public was significant in helping the piece together their case.

Police said Ms Sinclair was last seen leaving the Parap decorative concrete business she ran.

She was then spotted on CCTV at a BP service station at nearby Fannie Bay.

Police said Ms Sinclair had not been in contact with her son, Alex, since disappearing and had not accessed her bank account or used her mobile phone.

“Her sudden disappearance was completely out of character, and after being advised police immediately held grave concerns for her welfare,” Mr McRoberts said.

“It was simply too much to believe that Carlie would leave Alex behind.”

In January, the NT Supreme Court granted the Public Trustee management of Ms Sinclair’s estate, which included a property in Stuart Park, and several vehicles and bank accounts.

The media are being taken to the suspected gravesite at Berry Springs.


 Carlie Sinclair – Missing for Six Months

Wednesday 18-Dec-2013 12:31

Six months ago, little Alex Deacon’s mum, Carlie Sinclair, disappeared, sparking a Major Crime investigation that continues to build momentum.

The Northern Territory Police Major Crime Squad have been vigilant in their intelligence gathering and investigation, and are focussed on finding some closure for Carlie’s family.

“It has now been six months since Carlie was last seen alive,” said the head of Operation Samburu, Detective Sergeant Tony Henrys.

“In the lead up to Christmas, spare a thought for little Alex who will not be able to spend Christmas Day, Carlie’s birthday, with his mum.”

Carlie Sinclair was last seen alive by her partner Danny Deacon at their business premises, ‘Darwin Decorative Concrete’, late in the evening of Tuesday June 18.

Acting on information received early on in the investigation, Detectives and members of the Territory Response Group searched bushland and water courses in the vicinity of Parap, Stuart Park and Berry Springs. A search warrant was also executed at a Parap location, with soil samples gathered.

Two vehicles of interest were nominated back in early July, and Detectives are still calling for anyone who may have witnessed a white Hi-Ace van or late model silver Toyota Rav 4 around the Parap, Stuart Park, Cox Peninsular Road or Berry Springs area on the evening of June 18 or before midday on June 19 to contact Police.

“Detectives involved in this investigation are not prepared to give up. Every tiny shred of information is being thoroughly examined,” said Detective Sergeant Henrys.

“We would like to thank the community for their support thus far, and Police are very keen to speak to anyone who has information about Carlie’s disappearance.

“Somebody knows something. Somebody has the vital piece of information that will help us piece together this suspicious disappearance, and find some justice for Carlie, her parents, and her two-year-old son, Alex.

Carlie’s mother and father, Marlene and Robert, and brother, Kristian, have not given up on finding Carlie, and urge anyone with any information about Carlie’s disappearance to contact Police.

“Next Wednesday, while everyone celebrates Christmas with their families, we will be still wondering what happened to Carlie,” said Marlene Sinclair, Carlie’s Mum.

“If you know anything, anything at all, please call the Police. The small piece of information you have may be just what the Police need to make a breakthrough.”

You can report information to the Police anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

“Since the day the matter was reported to Police a team of investigators have been working on this case. We have not stopped and will not stop.”

“We continue to follow up on a number of matters and revise the evidence, statements and information we have already collected, looking for new leads to act on.

“We are determined to find out what happened to Carlie and to locate any person or persons that may have been involved in her disappearance,” concluded Detective Sergeant Henrys.

If you have information about the suspicious disappearance of Carlie Sinclair, please contact Police on 131 444, or make an anonymous call to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. You may be eligible for a reward.

Christmas is Carlie Sinclair’s birthday – she has been missing for six months

SIX months ago a Territory woman disappeared from Parap sparking a major crime investigation.

Carlie Sinclair was last seen by her partner Danny Deacon at their business premises, Darwin Decorative Concrete, in the evening of Tuesday June 18.

Her two-year-old son, Alex Deacon, will spend Christmas – also Carlie’s birthday – without his mum.

Acting on information received early on in the investigation, detectives and members of the Territory Response Group searched bushland and water courses in the vicinity of Parap, Stuart Park and Berry Springs. A search warrant was also executed in Parap, with soil samples gathered.

Police are also still seeking anyone who may have seen a white Hi-Ace van or late model silver Toyota Rav 4 around the Parap, Stuart Park, Cox Peninsular Road or Berry Springs area on the evening of June 18 or before midday the following day.

“Somebody knows something. Somebody has the vital piece of information that will help us piece together this suspicious disappearance, and find some justice for Carlie, her parents, and her two-year-old son, Alex,” said head of Operation Samburu, Detective Sergeant Tony Henrys.

Det Sgt Henrys thanked the community for their support so far.
Carlie’s mother and father, Marlene and Robert, and her brother Kristian, have not given up hope of finding Carlie and urge anyone with information about her disappearance to contact police.

People can do so by ringing 131444 or making an anonymous call to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. 

Hopes re-enactment could bring results one year after Carlie Sinclair went missing

POLICE have scoured waterways, bushland and drains; they have doorknocked homes, reviewed CCTV footage and made several high-profile calls for help.

Still the desperate search for Darwin mum Carlie Sinclair continues.A year on from her disappearance, four Northern Territory detectives are working full-time on the baffling case: re-examining evidence, reinterviewing people and poring over old statements.

It is all they can now do to bring closure to her loving family – parents Marlene and Robert, brother Kristian and, most importantly, her three-year-old son Alex.

Carlie, who would now be 36, was last seen by partner Danny Deacon at their Parap business, Darwin Decorative Concrete, on the evening of June 18, 2013. Mr Deacon told investigators the pair had an argument during a drink and she walked off.

Police suspect foul play and Mr Deacon, who has since moved to Perth, remains the only suspect.

“He was the last person to see her and he was in a domestic relationship with her,” investigator Acting Commander Tony Fuller said.

“He will remain a suspect until he’s eliminated.”

But building a case is difficult with no body and the trail has gone cold.

Acting Commander Fuller would not comment on the couple’s relationship, what evidence police have uncovered, or what lines of inquiry they were pursuing. But he said there were no “fresh” leads and her bank cards had not been touched since June 18.They have ruled out suicide and her devotion to Alex has all but ruled out the possibility she ran away.

“The mostly likely scenario is she met with foul play that night, by person or persons unknown to us at this stage,” Commander Fuller said.

Tomorrow it will be exactly one year since Carlie was last seen alive and police are making another public push for information.

“There must be someone out there who saw something or heard something that quite possibly hasn’t heard about Carlie’s disappearance,” Acting Commander Fuller said.

“It gets taxing over time, but those officers are very committed and they’ve only got one thing on their mind – that’s to get answers for young Alex.”

Police want to speak to anyone who has information, or who saw a white HiAce van or late-model silver Toyota RAV4 around the Parap, Stuart Park, or rural areas on the evening of June 18 or before noon the next day. Information can be given anonymously to police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

A Channel Nine special featuring re-enactments and interviews with Carlie’s family, friends and partner Danny Deacon will air tomorrow night in the hope of prompting someone to come forward with information.The project, shot on a shoe-string budget, has been more than four months in the making and taken presenter Jonathan Uptin and senior cameraman Graham Morrison beyond Darwin to Perth and Brisbane.

The re-enactments feature volunteer actors and are meticulous on detail, right down to the make and model car Carlie was driving when she went missing.

“One of the best things was there were so many people who volunteered their time and resources – these are people who didn’t want money,” Mr Uptin said. “Hopefully we’ll get a breakthrough; someone might be able to come forward.

“It’s something I’ve become emotionally invested in – it’s absorbed my life and I really want closure for the family. It sounds cliche but it’s true.”

The half-hour special will air at 6.30pm and lead into the second State of Origin clash between NSW and Queensland on Nine.

HOW IT UNFOLDED

JUNE 18, 2013: Carlie Sinclair is last seen by partner Danny Deacon at their Parap business, Darwin Decorative Concrete.

JUNE 28, 2013: Police search an area off Livingstone Rd, Acacia, after a tip-off Mr Deacon’s 4WD was seen in the area on June 18. It is one of several searches.

JULY 3, 2013: Mr Deacon asks Carlie to come home, saying: “Carlie, if you can hear this, you need to know that we both miss you very much, Alex and I are struggling on a daily basis.”

JULY 18, 2013: Mr Deacon reveals police have been watching his every move. He tells the NT News: “It is not nice being accused of it but at the end when you face reality that is what I expect them to do.”

DECEMBER 22, 2013: Days before what should have been Carlie’s 36th birthday, police and mother Marlene issue another public appeal for assistance.

JUNE 17, 2014: The eve of the one-year anniversary of Carlie’s disappearance. Police still count Mr Deacon as the only suspect, but say there are no fresh leads.


 

 $250,000 reward offered to find Carlie Sinclair

A $250,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for the disappearance of Darwin mother, Carlie Sinclair in 2013.

The reward includes a recommendation of indemnity from prosecution for any accomplice who gives information leading to a conviction, provided he or she did not actually commit the crime.

Chief Minister Adam Giles announced that the Government had approved a reward to help Police in their search for the person or persons who may have taken the life of Sinclair.

“Around midnight on Tuesday June 18 last year, Police believe the young mum left her business address at number 209 Stuart Highway in Parap after an argument with her partner,” Mr Giles said.

“She left behind her personal belongings, her car and her young son.

“She has not contacted her family or friends since which relatives say is completely out of character.

“Her bank accounts have not been touched since the day she was last seen and Police suspect she may have been murdered.”

Despite an intensive, year-long Police investigation, they have been unable to find her or those responsible for her disappearance.

A team of detectives has interviewed witnesses, viewed CCTV footage, conducted aerial and ground searches of the local area and organised information stands in Parap to no avail.

It is hoped that the offer of this substantial reward may provide an incentive for someone to come forward with what they know, saw or heard.

“A single piece of information, no matter how small, may hold the key to solving this crime,” Mr Giles said.

“Carlie Sinclair’s family, particularly her young son, deserve answers about what happened to her and who was responsible.

“I urge anyone with information to contact 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”

The allocation of the reward will be at the discretion of the Police Commissioner.

Police struggle in search for Carlie Sinclair, $250,000 reward offered

Northern Territy Police say they are at the end of the line in their investigation into the disappearance of Darwin mother Carlie Sinclair, and are announcing a $250,000 reward to try an re-ignite interest in the case.

Ms Sinclair disappeared on June 18 last year, and Police Commissioner John McRoberts said the anniversary was a good time to try and get fresh leads.

“Rewards are something that are considered when the investigation gets to a point at which we have exhausted all other avenues. We are now at that point,” Mr McRoberts said.

“I think it is also fitting that we use the 12-month anniversary as an ideal opportunity to generate a great deal of public interest,” he said.

It is kown that Ms Sinclair left her business in Parap with her partner Danny Deacon at their Parap business, Darwin Decorative Concrete.

She was not seen again and her bank accounts have not been touched since in the past 12 months.

She was the mother of a three-year-old boy, Alex, when she went missing.

“This is a substantial reward that seeks to identify information that can lead to the successful prosecution of someone who was involved in the disappearance and potential murder of Carlie Sinclair,” NT Chief Minister Adam Giles said.

Mr Giles said he was not aware of the NT ever paying out reward money in relation to previous crimes.

Simon Gittany’s girlfriend Rachelle Louise sues


How sad and how desperate is this? if anyone can remember this woman… She is/was Simon Gittany’s new girlfriend up until as far as I know he was sentenced in February to a minimum of 18 years in prison for murdering his fiancee Lisa Harnum by throwing her off the balcony of a Sydney highrise.

(Remember HOW the cash came from the MEDIA and she didn’t go to court so she could have her REACTION to sentence filmed for big dollars)

Well she is now suing someone because it was suggested she was a ex stripper/dancer blah blah and was wildly delusional! (I’m sure she was not delusional)

I’m suggesting her boyfriend was the best cash cow she had ever come across with no pun intended!

Here is all the stuff we have covered so far

So she does not accidentally find this site and see dollar signs, rather than post in FULL her case SO FAR !  here is the link folks. MMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Simon Gittany’s girlfriend Rachelle Louise sues Daily Mail over claims she is an ex-stripper and ‘world’s most deluded woman’

The girlfriend of convicted killer Simon Gittany is suing the Daily Mail for defamation over claims she is the “world’s most deluded woman” and a former stripper.

Rachelle Louise has protested Gittany’s innocence since he was sentenced in February to a minimum of 18 years in prison for murdering his fiancee Lisa Harnum by throwing her off the balcony of a Sydney highrise.

Ms Louise is suing the Daily Mail Australia over two stories published after his sentencing, which refer to her both as his “stripper girlfriend” and a “former stripper” who staged a “bizarre protest” outside Darlinghurst Court.

“A day in the life of world’s ‘most deluded’ woman,” said the second article .”Can she really believe balcony killer is innocent?”

The Daily Mail said it was “at the prison gates” when Ms Louise arrived to visit Gittany in Sydney’s Parklea Prison after he was jailed for a maximum of 26 years with a non-parole period of 18 years.

“Despite overwhelming evidence that 40-year-old Gittany had killed his fiancee, she continues to protest his innocence and has given two TV interviews in which she claimed there is no way he could have murdered Ms Harnum,” the report said.

Ms Louise, who is represented by experienced defamation barrister Roger Rasmussen, is suing the online news site for claiming that she is a stripper and a former stripper, as well as for suggesting she is the “world’s most deluded woman”.

She also says the articles suggest she is a “women [sic] of loose morals” and is deluded “because she believes convicted killer Simon Gittany is innocent”.

District Court judge Judith Gibson said the “stripper” meanings should be pleaded as alternatives rather than arguing both at the same time.

“Is being called a former stripper less defamatory than being called a stripper?” judge Gibson said in a judgment on preliminary issues.

“Should the imputation of being a former stripper be pleaded as a fall-back imputation? There is still utility in having fall-back imputations of lesser severity.”

Mr Rasmussen had argued that the articles also conveyed that Ms Louise was “stupid” because “[a]ny person who believes in the innocence of Gittany in the face of those assertions must be stupid”.

Judge Gibson said Mr Rasmussen had added in his submissions that a person can “wake up” from a delusion, while “stupid is forever”.

“Judging by Mr Rasmussen’s submissions, he considers “stupid” is a more permanent state of being “deluded”,” Judge Gibson said.

Judge Gibson said this was “contrary to the dictionary definition of ‘stupid’, which generally connotes intellectual limitations rather than being deluded on a permanent basis.”

She said the articles did “not convey an imputation that the plaintiff is stupid in the sense of having intellectual limitations”.

Judge Gibson ordered Ms Louise to pay the Daily Mail‘s costs for the preliminary hearing.

The District Court case will be heard by a jury.

More than $15 million worth of drugs, including 70,000 MDMA tablets, have been seized after police uncovered a clandestine lab in Sydney.

Detectives stopped a car on Wednesday in Box Hill, north west of Sydney, and arrested two men, a 35-year-old from Bondi and 24-year-old from Cranebrook.

Police raided a nearby property and allegedly uncovered a large scale drug lab and one kilogram of the drug ice.

Three litres of methylamphetamine oil and more then 200 items used to make ice and MDMA was also found.

Hours later another raid was carried out at a Bondi unit, where police allegedly found 70,000 tablets believed to be MDMA, weighing in at about 17 kilograms.

Officers also found 4kg of MDMA powder, more than 4kg of ice and a ballistics vest in the beachside suburb unit.

Police believe the total potential street value of the drugs is about $15 million.

Both men have been charged with a drug manufacturing, and the Bondi man is also facing drug supply offences.

This year alone NSW police have shut down 44 drug labs.

Detective Superintendent Tony Cooke said officers involved in the major drug haul had been working around the clock.

“That hard work has now been rewarded with a significant quantity of drugs not making it to the street,” the drug squad commander said.

“We will continue to do everything we can to stop illicit drug syndicates profiting at the community’s loss but members of the public need to continue playing their part too.” Both men were refused bail in Parramatta Local Court on Thursday, and will appear in Central Local Court on August 28.
