HERE IS WHAT UNFOLDED EARLIER TODAY AFTER POLICE SOUGHT ASSISTANCE (LEADING TO THE ARREST)
The arrest came after police appealed for anyone who knew the killer to come forward.
They had obtained a DNA profile from the crime scene and located a witness who saw a four-wheel drive outside the home where Andrew and Rose Rowe and their 16-year-old daughter Chantelle were stabbed to death a week ago.
Detective Superintendent Grant Moyle asked anyone who may know, or may have inadvertently helped, the killer to come forward.
“If anyone is out there that knows the offender in this case, has any further information in regard to who may be involved, may have assisted the offender either before during or after this offence, now is the time to come forward,” he told reporters on Tuesday.
He said it was not unusual for more than one person to know about a crime or to become involved in it unintentionally after the fact.
“I ask you to reflect on the nature of this crime and assist police.”
On Monday he said police wanted to track the owners of a white 4WD traytop Toyota Landcruiser that was seen outside the trio’s house about midnight on November 6.
The family was slain in the early hours of November 7.
Supt Moyle said there were two people in the car and one of them got out.
“I am not suggesting that the people in the vehicle committed the offence, but it was in the area and we want to eliminate them from our inquiries,” he said on Tuesday.
He said officers continued to follow a number of “positive” lines of inquiry
