Karlie Pearce-Stevenson’s accused murderer Daniel Holdom charged over murder of toddler Khandalyce Kiara Pearce


Update 15/12/15

 

The man charged with Karlie Pearce-Stevenson’s murder has now also been charged with the murder of her daughter Khandalyce.

Daniel Holdom, 41, was arrested at Parramatta police station this morning.

“We will be alleging in court that Khandalyce was murdered in New South Wales shortly after the murder of Karlie,” Detective Superintendent Mick Willing said.

“I’m talking a number of days.”

He said he expected Holdom to face Parramatta Local Court this afternoon.

“This has been a very intense investigation,” Detective Superintendent Willing said.

“We would like to thank the public and the media for their assistance.

“We would not have been able to lay the charges we have laid without the assistance of the public.

“Karlie and Khandalyce’s family were notified of today’s events earlier today and have indicated they welcome the news.

“Our thoughts remain with them.”

He encouraged anyone who had information about the matters who had not been in touch with the police to contact police now.

Holdom was charged in October with murdering Ms Pearce-Stevenson in or near the Belanglo State Forest in December 2008.

Khandalyce’s skeletal remains were discovered in July this year after being dumped in a suitcase alongside the Karoonda Highway in South Australia’s Murray Mallee, more than 1,000 kilometres away from where her mother’s remains had been found.

Detectives in South Australia and New South Wales were able to link the two cold case murders after two separate calls to Crime Stoppers.

Both Khandalyce and her mother were reported missing in the Northern Territory on September 4, 2009, by Ms Stevenson-Pearce’s mother, but police said the report was later withdrawn.

Ms Pearce-Stevenson was a single mother and had moved away from her family with Khandalyce between 2006 and 2008, intending to travel and work.

She was last seen driving a car with Khandalyce on the Stuart Highway near Coober Pedy on November 8, 2008.

Police said Ms Stevenson-Pearce was aged 20 at the time while Khandalyce was aged two.

More than 100 mourners gathered at the Alice Springs Desert Church for the private farewell for the pair earlier this month.

A group of people released dozens of pink and blue balloons outside the church at the conclusion of the service.

The mother and daughter were buried together in a small white coffin at a local cemetery, next to Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s mother Colleen Povey, who died in 2012.

Earlier this year new photos of Khandalyce were found on the Facebook page of Hazel Passmore, an ex-girlfriend of Holdom.

It is understood police will allege Ms Passmore was the same woman who impersonated Ms Pearce-Stevenson in 2010.

Police have also said Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s bank account was used to access almost $100,000 and her phone used to contact family to make it look like she was still alive long after she was dead.

Murder victim Karlie Pearce-Stevenson’s bank account was used to access almost $100,000 and her phone used to contact family to make it look like she was still alive, police have revealed.

The woman’s bank account was accessed on hundreds of occasions after she was last seen alive late 2008, Detective Superintendent Des Bray of the Major Crime Investigation Branch told reporters in Adelaide.

Police also said her mobile phone was used to send text messages to family members to fool them into thinking she was alive and well.

Det Supt Bray also confirmed Ms Pearce-Stevenson was last seen alive in Canberra in December 2008.

Police had previously reported she was last seen driving on the Stuart Highway near Coober Pedy in South Australia in November 2008.

Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s remains were found in the Belanglo State Forest in New South Wales in 2010.

Her daughter Khandalyce’s remains were found near the side of a highway at Wynarka in South Australia earlier this year.

“People we believe may be the offenders and others have taken over Karlie’s identity, her telephone, her bank accounts, her Centrelink and family payments,” Det Supt Bray said.

“We need to determine if the people involved in the frauds are involved in the murder and it is most likely that one or more may be involved in some way.

“It’s clear that some of the people involved in the frauds knew without doubt that Karlie and Khandalyce were dead and continued with their role.

“In respect to what we know about the suspects involved in the financial aspects of the bank account transactions, Centrelink fraud and the use of the phone, I can say that we know that at least one offender was a male. There may have been more, and at least two are females.

“Those suspects either resided at, or are associated with or were listed in connection with, properties at Davoren Park, Hillbank, Holden Hill and Charnwood in Canberra.”

Woman posed as Karlie to change bank records

Det Supt Bray also revealed that a woman posed as Ms Pearce-Stevenson during a bank visit in 2010 and at Centrelink later that same year.

Police said a member of her family sent money to her bank account and it was later withdrawn.

They said almost $100,000 went through the bank account before it was closed earlier this year due to inactivity.

Police revealed that a woman who went into a credit union branch in 2010 was possibly the same person who later attended a Centrelink office in Adelaide, producing identity papers to pose as Karlie.

“It appears that in June 2010 a woman in a wheelchair impersonating Ms Pearce-Stevenson attended Australian Central Credit Union at Elizabeth to update banking records,” police said in a statement.

“In December 2010 a woman claiming to be Ms Pearce-Stevenson also attended a compulsory interview with Centrelink at Salisbury.

“Detectives are investigating if it was the same woman on both occasions.”

Police also said a bank card was used several times at the Royal Adelaide Hospital during 2010 and later used, in March 2012, at Charnwood in Canberra.

Phone used to mislead family: police

Detective Superintendent Bray said the victim’s mobile phone was kept and used, including to contact the young woman’s family.

“We believe that the phone was kept by the offenders and used to provide some proof of life and to mislead family, friends, law enforcement by suggesting that Karlie was still alive because of activity on her phone,” he said.

He said the message bank was accessed from time to time.

“We know … some of the SMSs were sent to family members, again to suggest Karlie was still alive and that on at least a couple of occasions that we know of a female falsely represented herself to be Karlie in communication with family,” he said.

Detective Superintendent Bray said the last confirmed sighting of the young woman before her death was in Canberra.

“We believe Karlie and Khandalyce were killed at different times and different locations but we can’t say any more about that at the moment,” he said.

“They were both violent and deliberate deaths.”

The circumstances of Khandalyce’s death are unclear, along with when a suitcase containing clothing was dumped about two kilometres from Wynarka in South Australia.

A death notice was printed on Tuesday in the Northern Territory News for the two murder victims.

Angel and her little girl’s story

Police make major breakthrough in alleged double murder case

Khandalyce Kiara Pearce is born in Alice Springs in 2006.

The little girl’s mother Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson was also born in Alice Springs.

In 2008 the pair moved away from their family and began to travel.

Pearce-Stevenson had planned to find work.

The mother and daughter were seen driving on the Stuart Highway near Coober Pedy on November 8, 2008.

They were last seen alive in Canberra in December 2008.

Ms Pearce-Stevenson was 20 and Khandalyce was aged two.

Her family raised the alarm and contacted Northern Territory Police on September 4, 2009, to make a Missing Person Report.

That report was closed on September 10 after it was believed Ms Pearce-Stevenson was safe and did not want family contact.

The skeleton of a woman is found in the Belanglo State Forest in August 2010 near where serial killer Ivan Milat dumped the bodies of his seven backpacker victims in the 1990s.

Milat was convicted for his crimes in 1996 and remains in jail.

The unidentified woman was named “Angel” by NSW Police as she was found with a T-shirt bearing an ‘Angelic’ motif across the front.

A passing motorist finds a suitcase and bones near the side of the Karoonda Highway about two kilometres west of Wynarka, in South Australia’s Murray Mallee, in July 2015.

Detective Superintendent Des Bray said the motorist was driving along the highway when their attention was “drawn to something on the side of the road”.

“They stopped, had a look behind some bushes, and found what we now know to be the skeleton of a young child,” he said.

A suitcase and scattered clothes were found nearby.

A Crime Stopper caller on October 8, 2015, names Khandalyce as possibly being the little girl found near the suitcase.

The caller had not seen the child or Ms Pearce-Stevenson for some time and believed they were missing.

Police discover Khandalyce was immunised at 18 months but there was no further record of her receiving medical treatment or being enrolled in school.

Officers locate a witness who had seen the pair at Marion Shopping Centre in Adelaide in November 2008.

She had taken photos of Khandalyce wearing a pink dress. That dress was found with the remains in the suitcase.

A blood sample from Khandalyce’s medical records was analysed by Forensic Science South Australia and conclusively matched the DNA profile extracted from the skeletal remains near the suitcase.

Blood samples from Ms Pearce-Stevenson medical records were also used to develop a DNA profile. This was sent to police in NSW, who confirmed that they matched that of “Angel”.

MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH see below 21/10/15

We have all seen this tragic story on TV, in the papers, online and radio. I cannot fathom that there is nobody out there that knows something about the little girl who has died and been dumped in the most awful of ways and said NOTHING. Posting here hopefully will help. Our friends at webslueths are doing everything they can to bust open this mystery, congrats!


A MAN serving time in a NSW jail is one of several suspects in the disappearance and murder of Alice Springs mother and daughter Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson and Khandalyce Pearce.

A day after police revealed the identities of the pair — a two-year old found in a suitcase near Wynarka in South Australia in July and her 20-year-old mother found in Belanglo State Forest in 2010 — investigators are looking into the movements of the man who is understood to be awaiting sentence on unrelated charges.

A police source confirmed to the Daily Telegraph the man was being looked into while officially police said they were keeping an open mind.

The source said dumping Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s body, which was found by trail bike riders in August, 2010, in Belanglo State Forest, was most likely a deliberate ploy to point the finger at Backpacker Murderer Ivan Milat.

“Where else would you put a body if you wanted to blame someone else?” a police source said.

Police are trying to find the car the pair were travelling in when they disappeared, with phone records and bank records being checked since their bodies were identified.

The focus of the inquiry is how Ms Pearce-Stevenson ended up in the Belanglo State Forest and her daughter in South Australia, after the pair were last seen when they were pulled over by police on the Stuart Highway near Coober Pedy in November 2008.

Meanwhile, overwhelmed by the grief and the kindness of the Australian community, the family of two “angels” are reeling from the grim discovery that has shocked a nation.

Too distraught to speak publicly, the family of Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson and her toddler daughter Khandalyce on Thursday took to social media sites to pay tribute to the murder victims.
The grieving family on Wednesday launched an online appeal to raise funds for a proper burial in Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s home town of Alice Springs.

Aiming to raise $5000, the appeal already attracted enough pledges in less than a day after it was placed online.

The post said the family had “spent the past six years desperately trying to locate their whereabouts”.

“Our family is asking for assistance to help us raise the funds to bring Karlie and Khandalyce’s remains home to Alice Springs so they can be reunited and laid to rest together with family.”

However, the funeral is likely to be paid for by the state, after Commissioner for Victims’ Rights Michael O’Connell secured funding to ensure the family would not be left to pay for the service and the repatriation of the remains.

Mr O’Connell said he had advised the family late on Thursday and “they were overwhelmed.’’

“They are thankful because this has taken an additional burden from them … they would have found it difficult to deal with while they are grieving,’’ he said.

“My office has received many, many unsolicited offers to pay for the funeral in recent moths from people who genuinely have been touched by the death of the little girl and its circumstances,’’ Mr O’Connell said.

The family’s online appeal page pledged that any extra funds donated would go to other victims of crime.

Ms Pearce-Stevenson was known to her friends as “Mouse” while family members referred to Khandalyce as “Candles”.

Ms Pearce Stevenson’s body was found in the notorious Belanglo Forest in NSW in August 2010 while her daughter’s remains were found inside a suitcase on the side of the Karoonda Highway near the tiny town of Wynarka in July this year.

Karlie’s stepfather Scott Povey last night revealed his devastation.

“(I) just miss them so much … some days I am just numb and other days I, dunno, just (feel) empty,” he told Seven News.

“We had a lot of Facebook pages and everything else … she just disappeared like she did not want to be found but I think we all knew that something wasn’t right.”

Aunties and uncles of Ms Pearce-Stevenson also took to social media to thank friends and strangers alike for their support.

“I’m absolutely overwhelmed with people’s kindnesses (sic) and generosity. Thank you all so very much,” one aunty’s post read.

She lamented how four generations of a family had now been lost.

“Four generations taken from us … Three of them so cruelly,” she posted.

Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s mother, Colleen Povey, passed away in 2012, aged 44, still believing her daughter and granddaughter were safe and living interstate.

Her grandmother, Connie Duffy, died in 2011.

The family has used social media sites including Facebook during the seven years since she was last sighted with her daughter on the Stuart Highway near Coober Pedy on November 8, 2008.

On a Facebook page set up to find the young mother, relatives pleaded with her to contact her mother before it’s “too late.”

Police have announced the body of a little girl found in a suitcase in Wynarka is Khandalyce Kiara Pearce.

“Has any 1 at all since this girl it is very important we find her or get hold of her asap so if any 1 knows anything at all plz lets me no thank u,” her cousin Samantha Harris wrote in 2012.

Karlie’s former Alice Springs High School classmate Samantha Camwell Devlin remembered the young mother as “energetic, fun and always laughing”.

Ms Camwell Devlin, 26, said she was devastated when she learned of the murder.

“I immediately raised my hand to mouth because my mouth dropped open and I just couldn’t believe it,” she said.

The pair played in the same netball team, it was through netball that Karlie earnt the nickname ‘Mouse’.

“We called her Mouse because she was small and really quick,” she said.

“Her mum (Ms Povey) was our coach in under 17s, she was great.”

The Advertiser has spoken to a number of other family members, who said they were too upset to speak publicly and were hopeful police would make a fast breakthrough in tracking down the killer or killers.

— with Nigel Hunt and Jill Poulsen

NORTHERN Territory Police have confirmed a missing persons report raised for Karlie Pearce-Stevenson in 2009 was closed a week later after her mother heard from her daughter.

NT Police Assistant Commissioner Jamie Chalker provided further information on the report.

“It is known that Karlie’s mother raised a missing persons report on 4 September, 2009, in Alice Springs and normal initial investigation inquiries at that time indicated signs of active life,” he said.

“It was understood that Karlie had travelled interstate with her daughter and that family contact had been intermittent.

“The investigation was subsequently filed on 10 September, 2009, after Karlie’s mum withdrew her concern as she advised that she had received contact from Karlie, that she was safe and did not want further contact.”

Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s mother, Colleen Povey, died in 2012. It is understood her family believed Ms Pearce-Stevenson was still alive but estranged.

Police hunt for Karlie’s car

THE car that Karlie Pearce-Stevenson and her daughter Khandalyce were travelling around Australia in has emerged as a major focus as detectives hunt their killer or killers.

Detectives from South Australia and New South Wales on Thursday continued to trawl through new calls to Crime Stoppers — which yielded the breakthrough that shocked the nation on Wednesday.

Police quickly ruled out any family members including Khandalyce’s father as suspects but are pleading for any information that could help track down their killer.

Major Crime detectives have refused to say how many suspects they may be investigating.

A major focus of the investigation is finding the Holden Commodore that Karlie and her daughter were last seen driving in when they were pulled over by police near Coober Pedy.

Detectives cannot yet establish if the murders occurred at the same time or exactly how they died.

“It is a rapidly moving investigation,’’ NSW Homicide Squad Detective Superintendent Michael Willing said.

“We are working with the SA police to try establish the circumstances of both deaths.’’

As of Thursday afternoon, there had been 30 Crime Stoppers calls received in SA and dozen in other states.

Landlords and operators of hotels, motels, and caravan and cabin parks are also urged to check their records to see if Ms Pearce-Stevenson stayed with them.

Police renewed their appeal for friends and associates of Ms Pearce-Stevenson and Khandalyce to make contact with police through Crime Stoppers.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at Crime Stoppers


 

 

Girl near suitcase identified as Khandalyce Kiara Pearce; mother Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson found in Belanglo State Forest

21/10/15

Remains of a child found near a suitcase alongside a South Australian highway earlier this year have been identified as two-year-old girl Khandalyce Kiara Pearce.

Her mother is Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson, whose body was found in Belanglo State Forest in New South Wales in 2010.

Both Khandalyce and Karlie were reported missing in the Northern Territory in 2009 but police said the report was later withdrawn.

Karlie was a single mother and had moved away from her family with Khandalyce between 2006 and 2008, intending to travel and work.

She was last seen driving a car with Khandalyce on the Stuart Highway near Coober Pedy on November 8, 2008.

Police said Karlie was aged 20 at the time while Khandalyce was aged two.

SA Police Detective Superintendent Des Bray said both mother and daughter suffered violent deaths and a joint operation with NSW police was focused on finding the person or persons responsible.

“This is one of the most shocking crimes, shocking and unimaginable and another family has been torn apart and devastated,” he said.

“Those people that are responsible for this crime are truly evil and must be quickly caught and held to account for what they’ve done.”

He said it was premature to talk about suspects and said police were not prepared to “speculate” at this stage.

Superintendent Bray said the circumstances and time of the deaths had yet to be determined.

Significant development in case came with phone call

Police said the “significant development” began on October 8 when a call to Crime Stoppers “nominated Khandalyce as possibly being the little girl in the suitcase”.

“Investigators then located a witness who had seen Khandalyce and her mother at Marion Shopping Centre, Adelaide, in November 2008,” police said.

“She had taken photos of Khandalyce wearing a pink dress.”

Police said the dress was identical to the dress found with the remains in the suitcase, which was found off the Karoonda Highway near Wynarka in SA’s Murray Mallee on July 14 and reported to police the following day.

The family of Karlie and Khandalyce said in a statement they were grateful to the police, the community and media, “and everyone who has assisted or provided information in this investigation”.

“As you would expect, our family is devastated by this news of the deaths of Karlie and Khandalyce and we are trying to deal with the grief,” they said.

“We understand that this case has created considerable interest across the country but at this time we ask that you respect our privacy to allow us to grieve.”

Khandalyce’s remains found dumped near a suitcase

Police said Khandalyce’s remains were originally dumped in a suitcase up to three months earlier, before somebody unknown tipped out the contents, including the child’s remains, before dragging the suitcase onto the verge.

Police said the girl could have died at any time since 2007 and was aged between two-and-a-half and four years old.

Investigators are still trying to identify a man, believed to be in his 60s, who was seen in the Wynarka area with a dark suitcase on both April 13 and May 26.

The skeleton of a woman was found in the Belanglo State Forest in August 2010 and more than a year later NSW police released a likeness of the woman who they believed to be aged between 13 and 25 and murdered in the past decade.

Police also released an artist’s impression of a T-shirt which was found near the bones. The T-shirt carried a distinct motif featuring the word “Angelic” in pink text, a rose, and a heart with angel wings.

The type of T-shirt was available for sale in New South Wales and other parts of Australia from the early to mid-2000s.

Belanglo is notorious as the former stamping ground of serial killer Ivan Milat, who was convicted in 1996 over the murders of seven young people in the area.

It is understood Karlie and Khandalyce may have lived in Canberra for a period prior to their disappearance.

ACT police said for this reason they were assisting detectives from New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory with their investigations.

Sally, Gaf and Miss X: The clothing tags police identify as the latest chilling clues in the hunt for the killer of tragic ‘suitcase girl’… but her identity is STILL a mystery

  • Police have released images of five clothing tags found in a suitcase
  • The skeleton of the girl was found dumped with the suitcase of clothing on a highway near a remote outback South Australian town 
  • The tags of the five unidentified items of clothing indicate they are from brands Gaf, H.F., Miss X Australia, Sally and Haolailh 
  • Investigators are tracking down brands in the hope of identifying child 
  • Earlier mothers on a blog identified the black tutu found with the bones  

Police have released images of more clothing tags in the hope of finding the murderer of a young girl whose body was found in a suitcase beside a highway last month.

South Australian detectives have revealed that of around 50 items of clothing found with the child’s remains, they are yet to identify the brands of five items.

The bones, which police say belong to a girl aged between two and four years old who died up to eight years ago, were found dumped on the Karoonda Highway about 2km west of Wynarka in South Australia.

The tags of the five unidentified items of clothing indicate they are from brands Gaf, H.F., Miss X Australia, Sally and Haolailh.

They hope by revealing the tags on the clothes it will bring them closer to whoever was responsible for the child's death

The Haolailh tag is from the distinctive Dora The Explorer top, one of the more recognisable items along with the navy blue Cotton On tutu, according to News Corp.

‘We hope either a retailer or member of the public may be able to identify where the items have been or still are sold,’ Major Crime officer-in-charge Detective Superintendent Des Bray said.

‘The Dora the Explorer top is pretty individual and someone may remember this and remember seeing a little girl they once knew wearing it.’

Locating the buyer of a dark blue tutu found in the suitcase is one of the other strong lines of inquiry being taken by police.

Late last month a group of mothers on the ‘websleuths’ online forum uncovered new clues in the case of the murdered ‘suitcase girl’ whose remains were dumped with a bag of children’s clothing by the side of the road in a remote outback railway siding town.

In a discussion on a websleuths.com forum, the women have identified the distinctive black tutu adorned with large sequins as a Cotton On brand dress for young girls which was discontinued several years ago.

The keen-eyed blog posters also identified the item originally described as a child’s ruler as a Lanza brand luggage tag, probably from the faded bag in which the remains lay amid numerous items of clothing, and a patchwork quilt found in a degraded state as an ‘I-spy’ quilt.

When one woman blogger named Pheme on the websleuths.com online forum spotted this distinctive little girls' black tutu dress, she knew it was the same model as the one she had bought her daughter from Cotton On and that it had been made a few years ago

Pheme's discovery sparked Snoop Dog on the websleuth forum to track down this ebay image of the black tutu dress with its distinctive cross-stitched large sequins, which differ in colour to a few of the sequins on the found dress, perhaps because of the garment's degradation lying for weeks in the open on an outback road

Keen amateur sleuths like Snoop Dog (who posted this on websleuth) are busily trying to solve the mystery of where the clothing found with the murdered girl's body might come from, thus leading detectives closer to the identification of the skeletal remains of the 2 to 4-year-old dumped by an outback highway in July

Thought at first to be a child's ruler, the metallic object above was soon identified on websleuth.com as actually coming from a suitcase, which police then identified as a Lanza brand piece of luggage

The Lanza logo with its distinctive diagonal motif belongs to a brand of luggage which appears to be no longer  widely available which fits in with the South Australian police estimated date of the murder of the little girl dumped with the suitcase, possibly as far back as 2007

This websleuth blogger also recognised the black tutu, saying her daughter wore a similar garment until she was about four years old, placing the item in the age framework put forward by police who believe the murdered girl was a preschooler of Caucasian appearance with fair hair and about 90cm tall

Online speculation has been rife since South Australian police revealed the discovery of the bag with the skeleton of a young girl who police say died ‘a violent and terrible death’.

The bones were found dumped on the Karoonda Highway about 2km west of Wynarka in South Australia.

A tiny railway siding township 120km south-east of Adelaide, Wynarka lies on the truck route between the South Australian grain belt and Port Adelaide.

Residents living in the handful of houses at Wynarka noticed a ‘mystery man’ carrying a suitcase on the Karoonda Highway on April 13 and May 26. The man was about 60 years old, of Caucasian appearance, average height, lightly built, clean cut and neatly dressed.

Detectives are trying to identify the body of young child

When SA Police released this image of this badly degraded but colourful quilt found with the child's body, quilters quickly went to work identifying seven of the fabrics used in the hexagonal patches, including the 'musical note' material in the border which was sold at Spotlight fabric outlet some years ago

Exact matches: The musical note and pumpkin patterned fabrics were identically matched by police with help from the public, and quilting experts have spread the word through mothers’ quilting groups and online forums which have lit up with discussions by people keen to solve the mystery of the dead girl’s origins

Quilters took to the SA Police Facebook page to write about the 'musical note' fabric and to say they had passed on the mystery information to their mother's quilting group in the hope of helping to crack the case

On July 15, a motorist who claimed they were ‘drawn to something on the side of the road’, found a faded suitcase lying open with clothing and other items scattered nearby close to the road and near a set of low bushes dotting the landscape.

When police investigated, they noticed a jawbone poking through piles of children’s clothing.

Stuffed into a 40cm wide weather-beaten case, in between a Dora the Explorer t-shirt and pink tracksuit pants, a pink toweling slipper, black tutu dress and satin Size 2 boxer shorts with kittens and teddy bears on them, were the skeletal remains of a child.

Forensic officers who examined the bones say the girl was between two-and-a-half and four years old, Caucasian with fair hair and could have died up to eight years ago.

The folorn sight of this little girl's pink slipper found with the murdered child's remains has so far sparked no recognition from the public

Daily Mail Australia could find only one partial match for the found slipper, a French 'chausson' (above) for 0-18 month old girls strikingly similar in design but with a 'Hello Kitty' motif instead, suggesting the butterfly slipper may be a copy

The folorn sight of a little girl’s pink slipper (left)  found with the slain child’s remains has sparked no matches to date, with Daily Mail Australia finding only the French slipper (right) for 0-18 month old girls strikingly similar in design but with a ‘Hello Kitty’ motif inbstead, suggesting the butterfly slipper may be a copy

The gap between the estimated time of the girl’s terrible death and the dumping of her remains fits in with what the websleuth bloggers have deduced about the origins of the clothing.

Police released photographs of the black tutu dress, the pink slipper embroidered with a butterfly motif, a smiley-faced T-shirt, what they originally thought was ‘a child’s ruler’, two pairs of boxer shorts made from the teddy bear and kitten patterned fabric, and the faded suitcase.

The photographs sparked excited chatter among the websleuth bloggers who quickly identified the ‘child’s ruler’ as the plastic tag from a Lanza brand bag, with its distinctive diagonal logo.

They moved on to the issue of  the black tutu dress, which also had a distinctive feature of large coloured sequins cross-sewn onto the tulle skirt of the garment.

The amateur sleuthing of the blogger mum and others who have posted on a police Facebook page place the clothing or fabric as dating back to at least seven years ago, tying in with the date SA police estimate the child was murdered.

Websleuth blogger Pheme quickly identified the tutu dress as ‘from a store called Cotton On. My daughter had the same one when she was about 2. Not sure how long they stocked it for though or even if they still do’.


The murdered girl in the suitcase

Found: On July 15 on the outback Karoonda Highway near Wynarka, 120km south-east of Adelaide

Sighting: 60-year-old clean cut, well-dressed Caucasian man seen April-May carrying a suitcase on the highway

The victim: 

  • • Believed to be a girl who died ‘a violent and terrible death’
  • • Aged 2.5-4 years at time of death 
  • • Likely Caucasian
  • • Had fair hair, 18cm long
  • • Was 90-95cm tall
  • • Was killed at another location
  • • Was killed some time since the start of 2007

Items found with the skeletal remains of the victim:

Black sequinned tutu dress, pink slipper with butterfly motif, Dora the Explorer outfit, boxer shorts, patchwork quilt and a Lanza brand suitcase

Snoop Dog responded, finding a photograph on ebay of an almost identical black tutu made by the Australian clothing giant Cotton On.

The only difference was the large cross-sewn sequins were of a single pale pink colour, whereas on the tutu found with the slain child, some of the sequins appeared blue or green, but this could have been as a result of the weathering which has also seen the deteriorated black bodice of the outfit lose much of its colour.

Daily Mail Australia has also identified a pink slipper, strikingly similar in design of the found item, but with a ‘Hello Kitty’ motif instead of the embroidered butterfly design.

Police then released a photograph of a badly degraded, colourful quilt, and quilters lit up the South Australian Police Facebook page with a discussion about the origin of the fabric squares in the quilt design.

Following this, the SA Police released a further image of the 90cm square quilt along with seven octagonal patches identified by their fabric, featuring musical notes, stars, teddies, a camel, pumpkins, flowers, insects and animals.

Detective Superintendent Des Bray, the officer in charge the SA Police Major Crime Investigation Branch, said the identified quilt patches included the pumpkin design and the musical notes border, which were an exact match, and the other fabric patches were a close likeness.

Supt Bray said the images of the items found with the girls’ remains had sparked a massive public response.

On the SA Police Facebook page, quilter Emma Stenhouse wrote that the kind of quilt in the photo released by SA Police was often called an ‘I-spy’ quilt as they could be used with children playing the I-spy game.

Emilee Egeberg went to Google images and wrote on the Facebook page that she had found a product called an ‘I spy kids quilt’ from 2008, which had the exact musical note fabric in some of its patches.

Could this 'I-spy' quilt be made by the same quilt maker who produced the degraded item found with the body of the murdered girl dumped by the South Australian highway in July?

After Facebook poster Emma Stenhouse identified the quilt as possibly from a series of patchwork quilts called 'I-spy' used in the game of the same name played with children, Emilee Egeberg wrote (above) that she went on to Google images to find a quilt with the exact musical note and star fabric of the found item

Heather Symons wrote that the musical note fabric had been around 20 years ago, sold by the Spotlight fabric outlet, and that the star fabric was from the same series.

Emma Rains shared the information with ‘my Mum’s patchwork group’, saying ‘someone must know something’.

Speculation that the fabric from the United States, meaning the quilt was possibly American-made, was quashed by the SA police, who said the fabric was probably imported from the US and sold here.

Other posters on the police Facebook page, who are taking a closer look at the patchwork designs, may come up with further clues.

Mellissa Preusker thought she could identify the ‘2nd hexagon from the right, top row. Looks like a ‘Unicorn’ fabric with a white unicorn head (facing to the left) and pink background. Seems familiar, but not sure where i have seen it.’

Daniella Erin wrote on the page that she recognised the ‘cartoon face of a lady … but for the life of me I can;t figure out from where. Maybe a Loralie design?!? I’m hoping somebody else does. It’s been driving me nuts.’

SA Police are continuing their investigation and say they have excluded 32 missing children as the potential victim.

Task Force Mallee investigators fan out from Wynarka

Task Force Mallee investigators continued their widespread canvass of the Wynarka area today in relation to the ongoing investigation into the murder of an unidentified little girl.

Officers from the Task Force, along with police from the Murray Mallee Local Service Area and State Tactical Response Group, yesterday began canvassing within a 25km radius of where the child’s remains were found in July, seeking information from the community.

The little girl was found, along with a faded suitcase, items of clothing and a degraded quilt, discarded near the Karoonda Highway about 2km west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region.  Her identity remains a mystery.

As part of the door-knock, police are speaking with residents, businesses operators and employees, schools, doctors and anyone else connected with the local community.

“Today our officers fanned out from the township of Wynarka to visit farming properties within the search zone,” said Detective Inspector Greg Hutchins, Major Crime Investigation Branch.

“There are many unknowns with this case.

“This is a horrific case centred on the murder of a young girl -someone must know something.

“A police forward command post has been established at the Karoonda Football Club and anyone with information is welcome to stop by and talk with police.”

Posters and letters will be distributed throughout the wider community and across the Murray Mallee Local Service Area as part of the operation.

The posters feature the distinctive black tutu dress and quilt found with the remains.  Of note, only 28 of the Cotton On Kids dresses were sold within South Australia about eight years ago.  The quilt was handmade, but machine-stitched.

To date 643 reports have been made to Crime Stoppers in connection with the case, and 60 children eliminated as potential victims.

Police are also seeking further information about a man seen in the area with a dark suitcase on both 13 April and 26 May.

Seen by locals who did not recognise him, he is described as being aged about 60, of Caucasian appearance, average height, lightly built, clean cut and neatly dressed.

Anyone with information that may assist the investigation, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at https://sa.crimestoppers.com.au/

What police know about the girl:

* Aged 2.5-4 years at time of death

* Likely Caucasian

* Had fair hair, 18 cm long

* Was 90-95 cm tall

* Was killed at another location

* Was killed some time between the start of 2007 and 12-18 months ago

Wide-spread canvass of Wynarka area begins

Task Force Mallee will today begin a large-scale canvass of the Wynarka area as the investigation into the discovery of a little girl’s remains continues.

Officers from the Task Force, along with police from the Murray Mallee Local Service Area and State Tactical Response Group, will begin doorknocking in the area around where the discovery was made in July, seeking information from the community.

The little girl was found, along with a faded suitcase, items of clothing and a degraded quilt, discarded near the Karoonda Highway about 2km west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region.

“We believe that someone in this area will have vital information for investigators,” Detective Superintendent Des Bray, the officer in charge of the Major Crime Investigation Branch, said.

“Someone loved this little girl. Someone other than her killer knows who she is and what happened to her.

“We are appealing to that person to come forward and talk to us.”

Dtv-Supt Bray said police would be speaking with residents, businesses operators and employees, schools, doctors and anyone else connected with the local community.

Today he noted that a quilt and a little black dress – which were both found with the girl – may hold the key to identifying her.

“The reality is we haven’t had anybody come forward that has had that exact quilt so we do think that quilt is still very distinctive and could hold the key to solving this,” he said.

He also noted there were only 28 dresses sold by Cotton on Kids throughout South Australia about eight years ago and it was not sold over the internet or in markets “so again that dress may hold the key”.

Black tutu style dress

“It’s a very challenging investigation and I don’t think that anyone would have thought that weeks later we would still be trying to identify the little girl.

“But every day we’ve been able to find out a little bit more than the day before and if every day continues like that then I’m happy.

Posters and letters will be distributed throughout the wider community as part of the operation.

“At this time we will be canvassing a 25km radius around where she was found, but we may extend that as the inquiry continues,” he said.

“Police will be establishing a forward command post at the Karoonda Football Club today (4 August), and anyone with information is welcome to stop by and talk with police.”

Data provided by the community will be cross referenced as Task Force Mallee investigators continue to follow leads in the inquiry into the girl’s identity and death.

 

At this time 610 reports have been made to Crime Stoppers in connection with the case, and 55 children eliminated as potential victims.

Police will also be seeking further information about a man seen in the area with a dark suitcase on both 13 April and 26 May.

Seen by locals who did not recognise him, he is described as being aged about 60, of Caucasian appearance, average height, lightly built, clean cut and neatly dressed.

“Despite many inquiries about the man with the suitcase we have been unable to identify him,” Det-Supt Bray said.

Anyone with information that may assist the investigation, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at https://sa.crimestoppers.com.au/

Task Force Mallee expanded

An additional five police officers have been assigned to Task Force Mallee as SA Police continue to investigate the death of a little girl whose skeletal remains were found alongside the Karoonda Highway earlier this month.
The officer in charge of the Major Crime Investigation Branch, Detective Superintendent Des Bray said lines of inquiry are also being issued to detectives across the state on a daily basis.
He added that while forensic work is continuing, it has been confirmed that the remains are those of a girl.
She was found by police, along with a faded suitcase, items of clothing and a degraded quilt (pictured top right), near the Karoonda Highway about 2km west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region on 15 July.
Taskforce Mallee was established in the wake of the discovery with 15 police officers initially assigned to the investigation, along with a significant forensic response.
To date 550 reports have been made to Crime Stoppers in connection with the case, and 53 children have been eliminated by investigators as potential victims.
“The massive public response has generated many lines of inquiry in addition to opportunities being identified by investigators,” Dtv-Supt Bray said.
“All of this information is assessed, prioritised and issued for investigation on a daily basis.
“The investigation is continuing at full speed while we await the results of forensic analysis.”
He noted that despite receiving a very large number of calls in respect to the homemade, machine-sewn quilt, the information supplied has not resulted in Task Force Mallee identifying a potential victim at this stage.
Police are also still seeking to identify a man seen in the area with a dark suitcase on both 13 April and 26 May.
Seen by locals who did not recognise him, he is described as being aged about 60, of Caucasian appearance, average height, lightly built, clean cut and neatly dressed.

‘Massive’ public response regarding Wynarka child

More than 400 reports have been made to Crime Stoppers in connection with the discovery of a little girl’s remains near the Karoonda Highway on 15 July.

Detective Superintendent Des Bray, the officer in charge the SA Police Major Crime Investigation Branch, said there had been a massive response from the public in relation to the murder inquiry – with a total of 410 reports made to Crime Stoppers, including 194 since Friday.

The child’s remains were located along with a faded suitcase, items of clothing and a degraded quilt near the highway about 2km west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region.

Images of the distinctive 90cm x 90cm homemade quilt were released on Sunday following forensic examination, and today Task Force Mallee investigators released a further digital image with seven of the quilt’s 25 octagonal patches now identified.

The image of the pumpkins and the 125mm-wide border fabric featuring music notes are exactly the same as those on the original quilt and the other images are a very close likeness, Det-Supt Bray said.

“We are extremely grateful for the level of community support we have received, and as a result of that support the investigation continues to progress each day,” he said.

At this time 32 children have been excluded as potential victims.

“It is highly unlikely that the victim in Madeleine McCann,” he added.

“At this time our inquiries will focus on where the evidence leads us in this investigation and at this point that primary focus remains within Australia.”

What police know about the child:

*             Believed to be a girl

*             Aged 2.5-4 years at time of death

*             Likely Caucasian

*             Had fair hair, 18cm long

*             Was 90-95cm tall

*             Was killed at another location

Quilt may hold key to Wynarka child’s identity

Photographs of a degraded quilt located, along with the remains of a child, at Wynarka earlier this month, have been released by Task Force Mallee investigators today.

Following close forensic examination, details of the 90cm x 90cm quilt have been released to the public in a bid to identify the child, who police believe was a young girl aged two-and-a-half to four at the time of her death.

Her skeletal remains were found along with a suitcase, items of clothing and the quilt near the Karoonda Highway about 2km west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region on 15 July.

The officer in charge of the Major Crime Investigation Branch, Detective Superintendent Des Bray, said on Friday that police believe the child could have died up to eight years ago and that she was killed at another location.

At some stage she was placed in the suitcase before it was left at the Wynarka location – sometime since mid-March.

Investigators believe the suitcase and its contents – including the child – were left at the location by an unknown person behind a bush and that at some stage someone tipped most of the contents out behind a nearby bush and left the suitcase near the roadside.

Among those items was the quilt, which appears to be homemade although it’s been machine-stitched.

That fact, along with its filling of a light-coloured polyester material, could indicate that its maker intended it to be washed regularly, police believe.

Dtv Supt Bray also noted that much of the quilt is badly degraded, but the fabric which is still intact reveals a wide border of black material illustrated with musical notes along with images of a pumpkin patch, a camel and dragonflies.

“It has been suggested this is a so-called i-Spy quilt which is especially constructed to allow a parent to play i-Spy with the child using the images stitched into the blanket,” he said.

“Someone loved that little girl and either made her, or gave her, that quilt. I would appeal for whoever loved her to get in touch with us.”

He added that investigators with Task Force Mallee continue to follow lines of inquiry, with 273 calls made to Crime Stoppers to date.

As a result, police have eliminated 25 children from the investigation who have been nominated as potential victims, but have been determined to be alive.

Police are still appealing to a man seen in the area about six to eight weeks ago with a dark suitcase to come forward. They have confirmed sightings of him with a suitcase near Karoonda on both 13 April and 26 May.

Described as being aged about 60, of Caucasian appearance, average height, lightly built, clean cut and neatly dressed, he was seen by a number of locals in the area and investigators are seeking to identify him and potentially exclude him from the inquiry.

Anyone who saw the man or has seen the suitcase by the highway, or who has any information that may assist the investigation, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at https://sa.crimestoppers.com.au/

Wynarka child believed to be a girl

SA Police have today announced they believe the skeletal human remains found near Wynarka last week are those of a girl aged two-and-a-half to four years.

At a press conference today, the officer in charge of the Major Crime Investigation Branch Detective Superintendent Des Bray, also announced that investigators believe the little girl could have died up to eight years ago – potentially making her aged 10-12 years if she was alive today.

“While the forensic analysis has not yet provided a conclusive result regarding this child’s gender we are reasonably confident at this time that these are the remains of a girl who had fair hair and was 90-95cm tall,” he said.

A manikin with hair of a similar colour and length, dressed in new versions of items of clothing found with the body was displayed to the media today as Task Force Mallee investigators continue their inquiries into the child’s murder.

Police have received 223 call to Crime Stoppers  (ph 1800 333 000) in relation to the discovery of the remains, near the Karoonda Highway about 2km west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region, on Wednesday 15 July.

Clothing and a suitcase – a new version of which was also displayed by police today – were found along with the remains.

Investigators believe the suitcase and its contents – including the child – were left at the location by an unknown person behind a bush and that at some stage someone tipped most of the contents out behind a nearby bush and left the suitcase near the roadside.

While the suitcase now appears a grey colour, it was originally black and has faded.

Dtv-Supt Bray said the suitcase was first seen after road works were concluded in mid-March, but police are keen to hear from anyone who saw it, touched it or emptied its contents.

“We believe the child died elsewhere and was placed into the suitcase before being left at the Wynarka location,” he said.

“For reasons I’m not going to disclose we are confident that this child was murdered and we would appeal for anyone with information that might assist us to make contact.

“This is a tragic case and we continue to follow a number of lines of inquiry in a bid to identify this child.

“At this time 24 children have been nominated as potential victims, but have been ruled out by investigators who have determined that they are alive and not requiring any further police attention.”

Police are still appealing to a man seen in the area about six to eight weeks ago with a dark suitcase to come forward.

Described as being aged about 60, of Caucasian appearance, average height, lightly built, clean cut and neatly dressed, he was seen by a number of locals in the area and investigators are seeking to identify him and potentially exclude him from the inquiry.

Anyone who saw the man or has seen the suitcase by the highway, or who has any information that may assist the investigation, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at https://sa.crimestoppers.com.au/

Crime Stoppers receive 200 calls regarding Wynarka case

Forensic analysis of human remains found near Wynarka last week have not yet determined the child’s gender, however Task Force Mallee investigators have ruled out 20 children as victims.

SA Police have now had 200 calls to Crime Stoppers (ph: 1800 333 000) in relation to the discovery of the remains of a child, about 2km west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region, on Wednesday 15 July.

Major Crime detectives have released images of clothing found along with the child’s remains near the Karoonda Highway.

The clothing, including a purple Dora the Explorer T-shirt, blue pyjama shorts and a pair of pink track pants, were mostly found on the ground near a grey Lanza suitcase.

The suitcase and its contents – including the child – were left at the location by an unknown person behind a bush.

Police believe that at some stage someone tipped most of the contents out behind a nearby bush and left the suitcase near the roadside.

People driving along the road saw the suitcase over time, originally closed and later with the lid open. Some stopped and inspected it.

The suitcase was first discovered shortly after road works were completed in March this year.

“Identifying who emptied the suitcase contents behind the bush and when it was emptied is very important to investigators,” said Detective Superintendent Des Bray, Officer in Charge, Major Crime Investigation Branch.

“The person who did this is not in any trouble and we encourage that person to come forward and contact us through Crime Stoppers or attend their local police station.”

Det Supt Bray also noted that further sightings of a 60-year-old man with the suitcase around the same time have been reported to police.

Earlier police appeals have noted that a man was seen in the area carrying a dark suitcase, about 8am one morning about six to eight weeks ago.

Described as being aged about 60, of Caucasian appearance, average height, lightly built, clean cut and neatly dressed, he was not a local.

“Identifying this man remains a priority so that he can be excluded if not involved,” Det Supt Bray said.

“Police continue to encourage this man or anyone who knows him to come forward and make contact with us.

“Forensic Science SA have been working very hard to identify the gender of the child and to obtain a DNA profile.

Despite their best efforts they have not been able to achieve that result yet, however they continue to be committed to the task using alternative methods of analysis.

“In the interim we need to be patient and we are actively investigating other lines of inquiry that are enabling us to progress the investigation.”

Forensic analysis of remains continues

Forensic analysis of human remains found near Wynarka last week has not yet determined the gender of the child, however, police have been able to rule out potential victims.

“Forensic Science staff are working very hard to deliver a result as quickly as possible.  We are hoping to be able to confirm the gender of the child this week.  A DNA profile is also being taken of the child, however, that will take longer, ” said Detective Superintendent Des Bray, Officer in Charge, Major Crime Investigation Branch.

Investigators have been assisted by 125 calls to Crime Stoppers since the bones were discovered.  Acting on information received from the public,  ten potential victims have been identified but detectives have been able to exclude them from the investigation.

Major Crime detectives have released images of clothing found along with the child’s remains near the Karoonda Highway at Wynarka last week.

The clothing, including a purple Dora the Explorer T-shirt, blue pyjama shorts and a pair of pink track pants, were found in a grey Lanza suitcase about two kilometres west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region, on Wednesday 15 July.

“The response we have received from the public is encouraging and we urge anyone that recognises any of the clothes to please contact police.

“We believe the child aged between 2 and 5 years was murdered at another location but the motive and the exact time frame is unknown.

“We are also seeking any information about a man seen by several people walking along the Karoonda Highway, carrying a dark suitcase, about 8am one morning about six to eight weeks ago.  He is described as being aged about 60, of Caucasian appearance, average height, lightly built, clean cut and neatly dressed.  He was not a local.”

Further images released of clothing found at Wynarka

Major Crime detectives trying to identify the body of a young child, have released further images of clothing found along with the child’s remains near the Karoonda Highway at Wynarka last week.

The clothing, including a purple Dora the Explorer T-shirt, blue pyjama shorts and a pair of pink track-pants, were found in a suitcase about 2kms west of the Wynarka township in the Murray Mallee region, on Wednesday 15 July.

“From 5pm last night police have received nearly 100 calls from the public to Crime Stoppers, which is encouraging and we urge anyone that recognises any of the clothes to please contact police,” said  Detective Superintendent Des Bray, the officer in charge of Major Crime Investigation Branch.
“Forensic Scientists are also working around the clock to help provide vital information to assist in the investigation.”

“We believe the child aged between 2-5 years was murdered at another location but the motive and the exact time frame is unknown” Det-Supt Bray said.

“We are also seeking any information about a man seen by several people walking along the Karoonda Highway, carrying a dark suitcase, about 8am one morning about six to eight weeks ago.

Images released as police investigate child murder

Major Crime detectives trying to identify the body of young child today released images of clothing and a suitcase found along with the child’s remains near the Karoonda Hwy this week.

The remains, clothing and case were found at Wynarka, about 150km east of Adelaide in the Murray Mallee region, on Wednesday.

Taskforce Mallee has been established with 15 police officers now working on the investigation, along with a significant forensic response.

A post mortem was conducted this morning – but the gender of the child still remains unknown .

Further forensic testing will be required before a gender is known early next week, while a DNA profile may take longer due to the complexities involved in the forensic analysis.

“Police emphasise that while it’s possible that the victim is female, the presence of female clothes should not be taken as confirmation of that, or that the clothes belonged to the child,” Detective Superintendent Des Bray, the officer in charge of Major Crime Investigation Branch, said today.

“We are hoping that someone recognises the clothes and then can help us identify the child.”

SA Police rule out 10 potential victims after child’s remains found

Updated 20 Jul 2015, 3:57pm

Police have discounted 10 potential victims in their search for the identity of a child whose remains were found in bushland near Wynarka in South Australia last week.

The skeletal remains of a child aged between two and five were found behind a bush off the Karoonda Highway on Wednesday last week.

Police believe the remains were originally dumped inside a suitcase found at the location, two kilometres west of Wynarka, up to two-and-a-half months ago.

They said they had received 125 calls from the public, with “10 potential victims identified” but subsequently excluded from the investigation.

A forensic analysis of the human remains has not been able to establish its gender yet but police have already announced the child suffered a “violent, horrible death”.

“Forensic Science staff are working very hard to deliver a result as quickly as possible,” Detective Superintendent Des Bray said.

“We are hoping to be able to confirm the gender of the child this week.

“A DNA profile is also being taken of the child, however, that will take longer.”

Police are still searching for man seeing walking along the Karoonda Highway at Wynarka carrying a dark suitcase about six to eight weeks ago.

He was not a local and is described as being aged about 60, Caucasian, clean cut and neatly dressed with a light build.

Major Crime detectives have released images of clothing found along with the remains, including a purple Dora the Explorer T-shirt, blue pyjama shorts, and a pair of pink tracksuit pants, in the hope a member of public recognised them.

“We believe the child, aged between two and five years, was murdered at another location but the motive and the exact time frame is unknown,” Superintendent Bray said.

  1. Thanks Robbo for putting this story out there on Aussie crims. I can only imagine how much time it takes to put these topics of discussion together.
    This is so sad and baffling. Nothing makes sense. I can’t help but think of the words we all witnessed a few years back – why here, why now? What happened, not only to result in this poor liitle girls tragic end of precious life; but what catalyst occurred for her remains to be dumped where they were after what seems to be some years after her death?
    All I can think is something changed which resulted in the suitcase having to be moved and possibly revealed. But what? A change of residential circumstances is about all I come up with.
    Hopefully someone recognises the clothing and quilt who have not yet become aware of the case. How can this not click with someone? How can no-one know of a sudden disappearance of a child and not recall the tutu? Unless they moved and are now on the move again? I dunno, but I hope someone out there knows and puts it together.

  2. It does appear that this girls murder could be a possible Domestic Murder as no parents or next of kin, seem to have missed or claimed this little girl’s cold blooded murdered, remains and dumped in a suitcase after maybe 7 or so years?… This alleged 60-year- old man must be found, as if he has done no wrong, then he would hand himself in to police to eliminate him, if he just innocently found the suitcase in this remote part of South Australia?

    This mysterious child murder and disposal in remote South Australia is very baffling, without knowing the identity of the child’s parents or next of kin. And sadly with some of the cases of very violent, un-suitable or unfit parents that in the past have long term, abused, bashed, sexual abused and even murdered children. Then these suspect parents or relations of the murdered child, will unlikely ever report the child missing or go to the police.
    As in the evil predatory modus operandi of child killers Brett Cowen, and John Myles Sharp, and even Mr Cruel, These killers don’t have a rational conscience, and it is only clever police detective work, and sometimes entrapment that catches up with these heartless predators.

    Suffice to say, sad but true , if this dumped child’s parents or relatives were indeed the killers, or knew who murdered her, then they are not going to ever report her missing. But they are out there somewhere in vast Australia, and possibly now have more children?…
    And it does not appear to be the usual case of a child disappearance or child abduction, but possibly more a domestic child abuse murder, which is going to make this a very difficult crime to solve, without forensic evidence linking to and knowing who the girls parents or matching DNA are?…
    If the child has been murdered elsewhere, up to or 7 or more years ago, and now for whatever motive, has been by panic, moved from a different location and just been dumped in a roadside spot after all this time in the middle of remote South Australia, then it is going to be a challenge to solve where the girl originally lived with her parents or was born? It could have been in South Australia, but also could have been from anywhere in Australia?…
    And it appears that this mystery- 60 year-old man, whoever he is and wherever he was from?… That no local in the area could recognize him as a local of the Wynarka area, and seen abandoning or carrying the murdered child in the suitcase. He may not even be from South Australia?… Did he have a vehicle though nearby, as he would not have walked all the way of 120km from Adelaide to the very isolated remote Victorian and South Australian boarder town of Pinnaroo. He must have drove a vehicle to get there, and dispose of the human remains in the suitcase?…
    The 60 year- old man has to be located in order to make a connection to this horrible child murder.
    And as he is not so keen to have been man enough to come forward to help the police in South Australia, after all the publicity this crime has brought, then this does make him a ‘person of interest’, for if he had nothing to do with the murder and just found the suitcase at another location, then he should come forward to police, to say where he found it, and why he was in this remote location at the time?…
    The faded dirty appearance of the suitcase, and the decomposed state of the child’s clothes also suggests that the case has been in storage under a house or in a shed for years?… Either that or was dumped in remote South Australia at a different location to where the suitcase was finally found?…I am not certain, but forensically if this 60 year-old man is caught, then his DNA, could connect him to the murder, unless he was dumping the human remains for someone else? But if he is a relative or friend of the murdered girls parents?, then him being located, could likely provide a good link, to where the suitcase originally was stored prior to its disposal or where the murder took place?…

    As Police Forces in Australia don’t for legal reasons of securing a solid conviction with a jury, approve of forensic psychic mediums to try and solve difficult cold case murder’s. I think in this case, that their assistance and opinions in this baffling murder, could and should be utilised as a investigation tool. As their assistance could if nothing else, provide a not thought of, missing clue to the original whereabouts of the suitcase or maybe find or track down the location tracks of the 60 year-old man, movements, long after he has gone from the crime scene, where he disposed of the suitcase with child’s clothes and bones?… The police have nothing to lose, by utilising the assistance of a few well renowned forensic psychic mediums, to give some opinions on the location of the dumped suitcase?, as was used in the sensing murder investigations on the Mr Cruel and Sarah MacDiarmid disappearance cold cases?… Its worth a try?… And might track this 60-tear-old man down to be questioned?…

  3. It is a frustrating enigma my opinion is if no family members have come forward especially the mother then the disposal of this child may have taken place by the immediate family or family member. The death of the child could of happened anywhere in Australia not nessesarily where it was dumped of course. I remember the disapearance of the 6 yr old girl from W.A in 2007 Leela McDougall her mother vanished too without a trace.

  4. Excellent job you have done Robbo, above on “The Hunt For Suitcase Girl Killer”, and with all the well presented information and police media interviews and all the pictures of the murdered girls clothing. It does Make one feel very powerless, and wonder how we the community can help out, catch this man and if he was the murderer or just the human remains disposal man for someone else who murdered the girl.?…

    I think the key is finding the 60-year-old man at the crime scene. I wonder if he could be identified by the local witnesses that saw him carrying the suitcase from any possible CCTV Footage camera’s from any truck stops or petrol stations or pubs or hotels, coffee shops or supermarket, general stores anywhere before Wynarka or after, and was he in a vehicle?,anywhere between the long drive to the Victorian- South Australian and NSW – Boarder towns from Renmark , Berri or Pinnaroo, through to Adelaide or into Victoria or NSW?…
    Also which direction was he heading on the Karoonda Highway? – was it west towards Wynarka or east away from Wynarka towards the Victorian or NSW boarder towns direction?…
    Did he come from Adelaide or was he going back towards Adelaide?… Just trying to establish where the murder may have took or the suitcase was kept for 6 years. Was it somewhere in South Australia or from another Australian State?…
    One thing it certainly is a strange , even unplanned, remote place to dispose of human remains, hoping they would not be found, and in near the local witnesses, where ever he came from. Also seems rather stupid to leave it where it was easy to find. There are far more off the road remote places to hide a suitcase in the Pinnaroo area for example, near the Victorian Boarder. Have a look at Pinnaroo area and remote NSW on Google Maps. He could have hidden the suit case a lot better, in the scrub or buried it where it may never had been found?… This does sound very cold, but its almost like he deliberately wanted the suitcase to be found, then quickly just disappeared without a trace?… Its frightening this or these creeps are still out there. Remember South Australia’s Snowtown in 1999. I wonder also if this 60 year-old creep is also from SA.

    This suitcase child murder is a gruesome murder, just like South Australia’s infamous Snowtown Murders and The Beaumont Children unsolved disappearance.

  5. I agree with you HM, there are many more places this suitcase could have been hidden without a trace; my own opinion is the person who put the case in that spot wanted it to be found. Perhaps to lift their conscience in some way? For the child to eventually be remembered and given a buriel? Again, I think something changed, a residential move, whereby the case could not be concealed anymore. I’m sure the policd would be looking into that possibility and looking at recent house sales or residents who recently moved.
    Still, why does no-one recall this child who suddenly disappeared? People have to look outside the box and think further back of seeing a child in this tutu, even in another town, suburb or State……..someone has to remember. Or, they lived so remotely, not many people knew of her existance? I’m personally not believing that.

  6. Thanks Robbo. I cannot believe that no-one recognises any of the many many ‘clues’ and that no-one can identify this poor little girl. Someone’s daughter, sister? Friend, kindy pal? and so on?
    Why only a few years ago? I fail to see how forensics can give an estimate when they can’t identify the child through teeth or bones or anything else. It is next to impossible to not know.
    My first reaction was, maybe this is Renee Aitken..? But if this was only a few years ago then the time would discount that..? It’s crazy. So much for professionals It seems we still rely on informers. If so, then where are they? Someone must know?
    Time will tell.
    Where were the clothes purchased or who made them? And when> A sales person of some description or maker or textile fabricator must know their own product.
    A friend who might have given some of these things to the mother or father as a gift must be aware.
    My suggestion is: Fess up! Come forth and ease someone’s pain and suffering?
    Or has the killer died.

  7. I am looking over google maps, and Thinking as a criminal would, if I was driving around these very isolated and remote murray mallee farming regions of South Australia , Victoria and New South Wales, there are so many places even without going very far off the road or beaten track, to disposed of this suitcase, even bury it, or hide it under some scrub.

    It is as you say Milly and Reagan the likely prospect of being a relative with a guilty conscience, that has carelessly or on purpose left it where it would be found near the highway.

    The only thing however I do find puzzling is why has this 60 year-old man. I assume in broad day light, on a highway where passing trucks or cars would easy observe him, has carelessly allowed himself to be easy seen, and by the description of a well elderly dressed man carrying the suitcase, before he put it down where it was weeks later found? If he is a alleged murderer or criminal accessory to the murder, he has been very sloppy to give witnesses the chance to now identify him, if he is eventually found and caught?
    Another thing if he is in fact in his sixties, then he must be a grandfather to the child. And he may not be the murderer, but probably knows who is. Maybe his son or son in law or a violent crazy boyfriend of the child’s mother? And he is a several years had to quickly depose of the suitcase.
    Although wouldn’t it be just as easy to dispose of the suitcase at the landfill or throw it in a rubbish dumpster, rather than drive to a remote region of South Australia, and leave the suitcase where it was quickly found?
    I have took a simulated drive on Google maps through this region of South Australia and notice that there a many scattered truck stops, petrol stations, pubs, shops, all of which would I assume have recorded CCTV. So if this 60-year- old man was driving in these areas, he possibly stop at one of these places, for a food stop or to put petrol in his car. Perhaps any CCTV footage from these places or nearby towns, could have his picture , compare with the local witnesses who give a description of him on the highway.

    It does seem unlikely he was in this remote area of South Australia on foot, so he must have had a car, or someone drove him there? The nearest towns are a long way apart to not have drove there or somebody else drove him there?…
    The more I look over Google maps of this vast remote area, the more mysterious this case is, as to why this elderly chose this exact location, to dispose of the child’s clothes and bones?…

    Could this man live in the grain belt outback Murray Mallee regions, say from the towns of Pinnaroo , Barmera , Karte, Berri ,Renmark , Murtho , or west from Murray Bridge or Tailem Bend any one of these isolated remote farming towns in this vast barren region and the murder even took place in this or these areas, rather than more far away somewhere?. Locals from Wynarka, may not necessary know the man from say ,if he was from Pinnaroo or the other long distance remote Victorian or New South Wales or South Australian border regions for example. So it could be a local is in fact the child’s parent and murderer?…Anyway just putting this out, its like looking for a needle in a haystack, finding this elderly man.
    Until the man carrying the suitcase is identified and found. The possibilities of where the child was and whose child it was originally and now horribly murdered are endless?

  8. I find it staggering how no-one has identified the clothing as well Reagan, though as Robbo has mentioned, the folk on Websleuths have done an amazing job at being able to trace the tutu to a cotton on brand of which only 28 were sold in South Australia. The other labels are proving to be difficult to trace and ‘may’ be cheap immitations made in Australia. They could have been purchased at an op shop as well. Another thing that puzzles me about the clothes is their varied sizing – from size 2 to 6; I know clothes can range in their sizings, just something doesn’t gel there. Also, a pair of boxer shorts with teddy bears and ‘baby 2000’ along with Holden boxers……..I know girls can and do wear mix n match gender wear…….but is there an older or younger brother?
    There’s also emphasis placed on the quilt – could it be that grandma made it and has now passed on? Which brings me to the mystery of the man with the suitcase. Is he the grandfather and are both grandparents aware of this and covering up for their son or daughter? I’m out to lunch on this suitcase guy……. I can’t fathom why he would want to be seen? How did he get there? If he drove, why didn’t he just drive his car up the track that runs beside the highway? If he was a stranger in town why haven’t the people who saw him given a facial description…..or have they? There seems to be more we may not yet be aware of. Or does the suitcase guy exist at all? I think too, as you say HM, there must be video surveilance somewhere…..I wonder if the Post Office in town has security cameras?
    I hope the DNA testing will reveal more clues or there can be a few more clues released to the public which may just twig with someone… I’m thinking this case will be solved eventually.

  9. This may sound rather harsh and judgemental towards these isolated country people living in this town, who probably don’t have anything to do with this abandoned suitcase of child’s bones.
    But thinking as a armchair detective, I find this ghost looking town, is very much surviving in hard and battling time by the run down, patched up appearance and almost abandoned ghost town look of some of the buildings, for example,l what looks like a meeting hall or school building.

    What I am trying to say without directly accusing or pointing the finger at the local residents of this remote town, is could it be possible the child was from this town in the past, and was even murdered in this same town or the nearby remote area 6 years ago, and for reasons unknown, the suitcase has just come to light from being hidden away, was just by panic, thrown near the Karoonda Highway, where it was expected it would be later found.
    Could the murderer , or the child’s parents, been locals? The report is the locals don’t know who the 60 odd year-old man was, quoting he was not from Wynarka.
    Perhaps he was, and the Wynarka town folk, are being protective or remaining silent on this sudden discovery of the suitcase. All right this is not a scene from the horror movie Wolf Creek, but all the same , it should not be discounted that a present or former Wynarka local, could know more than, they want to know, about this murder?

    I think also the child’s clothes could have been obtained from a charity shop, and a grandmother could have patch worked the spotlight material quit. And the child’s mother or father could have been responsible for the girls murder. And maybe they are now both dead or the father is in jail.
    And the grandfather has removed the suitcase from its hiding place, for his own reasons, and just dumped it on the highway. Perhaps the mother and father of the deceased child were violent drug addicts or child abusers. Once again I stress that finding the 60-year-old man is the vital clue to tracing who and why the murder was committed about 6 years ago.
    The Cotton On TuTu dress if it quite rare , could be a link, if it could be identified also, but without a reported missing girl, how can it be connected to the bone remains? A DNA forensic identification of the bones and clothing to its parents must be found, to learn whether the child’s parents are still alive or even also themselves now deceased? This elderly man, may be the only surviving relative to the deceased child?

    Someone does know something, but no one is talking , or at least telling the truth?
    The South Australian Police are, as is standard operating procedures, with police murder investigations, intentionally holding back on some of the important investigative details of this murder, which is to be expected, and they are divulging only what needs to be, to the public, so as not to damage any change of getting a strong concrete conviction in court, should the murderer be found in the future.

    I still think some psychic intervention could be of assistance to the police. It may dig up some helpful clues to the whereabouts of the perpetrators or where they were from?……………………

  14. I wonder who the witnesses were who saw the bloke with the suitcase, as it was not found for weeks I think the police said, and I also heard that it had been rummaged through by others unknown who found the case, by never saw the bones. It does appear not all the information on this case is reliable or credible. A well dressed man doesn’t in a remote place like this just appear out of the blue and as quickly vanish and never be seen again. At least not with out a vehicle.
    Just follow this Karoonda Highway for a while on the Google satellite maps, and see just how isolated and remote this sticks mallee region of South Australia and Victoria really is. The 160 km trip just Between Birchip and Pinnaroo is long straight roads with just wild scrub and salt lakes. No one could walk on foot for very long through here, without a car or getting a ride with someone? The nearest small towns a far ,far apart out here.
    Same with the Wynarka highway very much in isolation between populated towns?… I certainly wouldn’t want to have to walk through hear alone day or night, even driving through these remote area’s, unless one knew where they were suppose to be going, could get one quickly lost up the beaten track?… I got lost trying to just follow the roads on Goggle maps. I Still think this fellow carrying the suitcase could be from around this sticks mallee district area somewhere? I can’t see a city person from say Adelaide,or any major South Australian or Victorian town going all the way to the remote mallee sticks area, just to dispose of a suitcase. Wouldn’t it be much easier to just throw it in a house rubbish or recycle bin or dumpster in the city or take it to the beach and bury it in the sand dunes?
    I am just trying to think like a criminal, trying to think how I would get rid of the evidence. I would probably cover my face like all the crims do in a hoodie and wait to dark to find a spot to hide the suitcase. I wouldn’t go out well dress in broad daylight and carry it along a highway, the chance someone would see me?… This guy looks like he wanted to be seen with the suitcase, either that or he is a total idiot ?…

  15. Milly – I have been thinking the very same thing and was hesitant to mention it here also, in reference to these run down abandoned for sale looking properties in Wynarka. Their are secrets hiding here, and I am no psychic, at least I don’t think so, but something just is not right here. The town does look like its is very ‘Hickville’ – ‘Houso’ atmosphere. It does seem a very neglected lifeless existence of a forgotten railway town, almost a dead ghost town, way back from the main highway. Not even a general store, pub or service station. Rubbish, tyres, scattered in the nearby bushland . In fact I am surprised anyone would be living here. And whoever spoke to the police about seeing a man carrying a suitcase, claiming he was not a local. I surprised anyone in this town, saw anything at all, and wouldn’t fancy being a local, having to live here. I feel a very bad vibe about this whole remote town and area? This maybe just my stupid intuition, maybe I am very wrong, about the people who have or are still living in this remote town. But this is my opinion of the atmosphere of this area. Its a dump!… It certainly is not a tidy town. I think even that the suitcase, could have been in one of these house, and why it is so weather damaged. It could of been hidden in this town, and for reasons yet unknown, throw out nearby near the Karoonda highway? … Perhaps the mystery man seen was a real estate agent and found it in one of the houses. And instead of reporting it, just threw it nearby the highway?…

  16. Fair enough I over reacted on boxing the isolated small town folk as rednecks and dodgy residents. It is far more dangerous and people more dodgy in the big city and large regional cities and towns with violent crime. I just thought some aspects of this run down town, may have had the parents of this little girl living there once, and why the suitcase was found not far from this town. I am probably very wrong on this. I don’t know how the police will locate where the murder victims bones and the suitcase originally came from?
    I think until this bloke who put the suitcase in the tree, comes forward or is found, speculation or clutching at straws will happen out of desperation to find a killer to blame. It does appear that people from this town assisted in the wide scale search as SES volunteers, so I take back calling some of the town as suspicious, without knowing them. I thought the for sale signs, might be a give away clue to past suspicious residents, quickly shooting through and leaving town prior to the suitcase being dumped near the highway.
    I wasn’t aware until the latest police report that two ladies from Wynarka give the good reliable descriptions of this man seen walking along the highway carrying the suitcase. So it now appears , he was not a local. So back to square one. And no missing children reported of this girl, who if still alive today, could now be up to 12-years-old, if murdered back in 2007. So there is not much to go on, outside of DNA and forensic evidence.
    Its now appears the girl definitely was murdered elsewhere, as far back as 2007. So why her remains were left in a tree on the side of the road in remote Wynarka, only those involved know this. I still fail to grasp why this seen elderly man a few months back in April, was doing walking along the Karoonda Highway, well dressed in broad daylight , and why choose this location.
    Police have asked for truck drivers or vehicles with on board recording traffic camera’s to check their CCTV recordings for any images of the man with the suit case or dates with the images when the suitcase was visible from off the road. The police also want to hear from any people that emptied out the discarded suitcases contents, or rummaged through it. Its all about elimination of suspects, but finding the murderer is going to take a miracle break through. Either that or someone comes forward if they know something more about this little girl?…………………………

  17. Oh yeah HM, it’s still possible the mystery may be connected to the local area, just saying, as you acknowledged, we need to be aware not to box :) And I do think there are some dodgy looking places……but that can be anywhere :) I’m at a total loss, apart from checking out recent residential moves, but that also could be from anywhere….. :/ This mystery suitcase guy spinning my head as far as no further clues to what he was wearing, what he looked like and if the locals noticed a strange car as well? Personally, if I took the time to notice a stranger in such a small town, I’d be watching to see what he was up to……but that’s perhaps just my snoopy way. I just feel these witnesses could shed a little more light on mystery suitcase guy.

    • Yes Milly, I would have thought that the ladies that give the description to the police about the mystery suitcase man, being clean cut and wearing a suit, would have noticed if he got in to a waiting car or truck. And if no witnesses saw the man drive off in a vehicle, then where did he go then in this remote area, if none of the locals knew him?
      Did he place the suit case in the tree branches, and then just continue casually on foot walking in a west or east direction, along the Karoonda Highway. And all the way to the next remote South Australian town? But how far could he on shank’s pony (on foot), without a ride from a vehicle somewhere parked along the road?

      Once again I will refer the use of the viewing reference to the “{Google Wynarka – Karoonda Highway satellite maps}”. Its a long walk down the many barren kilometres after kilometres of mostly straight road. I think this is why the police after asking any truck drivers or cars driving along this road around April 2015, if they have filmed him on their “dash cams”.
      The only way he could have just as quickly appeared in the final dumped suitcase location and then walked off up or down the highway, would be if he had a car parked somewhere out of sight further along the road, say maybe a kilometre or so from the suitcase drop zone?… And he may also have had an ‘accomplice’ parked off road hiding in a vehicle parked in (the scrub), waiting for him to be picked up after dropping off the suitcase, then drive away from the crime scene, west of east along the Karoonda Highway or maybe even down one of the long (dirt back road or farming tracks)?

      Although if the suitcase man or a accomplice getaway driver, did drive off road along any of the many remote Wynarka area back tracks, like ‘Drualat Bore Road’, or ‘Burbidge Road’, for example, which is a alternative off road route which exits back further west, after a long drive back to the Karoonda Highway, without having to be seen , driving along the main Karoonda Highway.
      However , I would think he or they, would need to have some good local knowledge of the Wynarka area, and where its back roads come out. Because someone not familiar with this remote mallee area and its back roads, could very quickly end up getting lost deep in the sticks, like towards the direction of the thick and dense far away Lowan Conservation Park?

      Murray Bridge is the next major populated South Australian town. So maybe the suitcase man and child’s remains came from Murray Bridge or around this area? Or maybe the suitcase man was from as far as Adelaide or any hundred other small towns in the perimeter Murray Riverina district.
      Its just guess work. But is does seem logical that a vehicle had to be used somewhere to get the suitcase from A to B.? The suitcase man couldn’t have covered any of these vastly long distances on foot, in my opinion, unless he was old Cliff Young!…

      The only other explanation is that the man was indeed a local , which could be why the police are eventually during their investigations, door knock and check out farming properties from a 20 kilometre perimeter of Wynarka district and as far away as Sandalwood and Pinnaroo district. The police seem confident that they will find this man, eventually with the public help. Until then theories rather than facts, are all there is to go on?…….With plenty of police detectives working overtime on this child murder case!…………………………………………………………………………………….

His movements in and around the town on given dates surely have to be traceable, as you say dashcam…..something.

  20. Perhaps the suitcase man, caught the Wynarka train. Seriously though does a train still run through there , like a goods train, or is the line now disused. Maybe he followed the railway track on foot for a distance, then was picked up by a waiting car.
    Although the suitcase man, is thought to be sixty odd, he could very much still be the murderer ,as if you remember back in 1990 , the then 58 -year-old salesman, Sydney NSW Granny killer – John Wayne Glover was a cunning killer and took awhile for police to track down. Then after he was sentenced to jail, was found hanged in jail in 1991.

    :The Granny Killer (2005) – Serial Killer John Wayne Glover Documentary.

    And if the 60-year-old suitcase man , isn’t the killer, he is just as bad, as he has, knowingly carried around the suitcase of child’s bones and callously just dumped them. And if he didn’t directly murder the child, he more likely than not, knows very much who did. otherwise he would have took the human remains to the police or left the suitcase outside the nearest police station to wherever he live. The Police if they ever find him, need to question him as a murder suspect, at least until he confesses to whoever he was disposing of the body for. I also wonder if this suitcase man could have been part of a paedophile ring. Maybe he has also murdered the child’s parents, 7 years ago, and disposed of them also somewhere. And later murdered the child, and keep it as a trophy like many serial killers often do? Which could explain why no parents have come forward for seven years, to report the child missing. Also with the South Australian Beaumont Children murders, Derek Percy was only a young man when he was very active in 1966, but had he not been caught and went to jail for life, for just one of his serial murders, he would now be in the age group as this suitcase man carrying deceased child’s bone remains. And just like all serial killers and paedophile keep themselves well hidden after committing there heinous evil crimes.

    Anyway this is just another scenario on why this elderly man is not in a hurry to come forward to the South Australian Police Mallee Task Force. If he has done no wrong or did only , himself just found the suitcase in the tree off the Karoonda Highway, then I would think he would willingly come forward to assist the police. But he has not come forward, so this could point to him either being the child killer or an accessory to the murder. Looking at the Beaumont children disappearance , Derek Percy and other child killing paedophile predators like just like him, theor body counts are unknown, and they are good at staying hidden.

He lived longer than he deserved he was protected in prison and in the hospital nobody could get to the filthy freak I hope he suffered in agony before the useless turd took his last breath. Pedophiles are a weak pathetic breed no wonder theyre called rock spiders not even the best psychiatrist couldnt fix a fucked up mind as theirs its predisposed beyond repair there is only one solution for a pedophile and that is to end his or her life. The prisons are full of them there is not going to be much room left for these useless misfits. A pedo can even be a highly educated and wealthy person with a successful career such as a Judge, Lawyer, Nuns, Priests the list is endless as we all know. They hide behind their persona and thats the cowardly weak gutted thing about them. They are hideous and when they are finally caught by police they believe their own lies. To be the mother and father of a pedophile, murderer, rapist is a big fail they created a filthy dirty freak usually the parents hide like cowards too. For eg after Peter Garforth murdered Ebony Simpson his family surely would of taken off typical weak gutted lowlife scum. Greg Domasavich where is that weak grinning prick ? So this creep with the suitcase joins a long list of weak gutted sick minded filthy freaks. What a maggot. I hope he gets hit by a roadtrain in his travels.

    “THE GIRL IN THE SUITCASE”
    ‘A LONELY ROAD. A DUSTY CASE. – ANDREW RULE reports. ‘WYNARKA’

    THE Beaumont children. Truro. The Family. Snowtown.
    Now there’s Wynarka and the little girl in the suitcase, the latest addition to South Australia’s back-catalogue of horror stories.
    Wynarka is a blink – and – you’ll – miss- it collection of houses on the highway between nowhere and not much in the Murray Mallee, emptied-out farming country where communities have shrunk to little more than pairs of bullet -scarred road signs.
    Just west of town on the Karoonda Highway there’s a patch of bush before the big wheat paddocks start. It was there , on July 15, that a curious motorist pulled up when something caught his eye.
    He wasn’t the first to notice the faded suitcase abandoned under a bush. Others had been there over previous weeks and glanced at the case’s stained and rotting contents. But none had noticed the things he saw among a pile of clothes scattered nearby.

    It was a human jawbone . A small one. When the police arrived they found the rest of the skeleton, obviously a child’s — almost certainly a girl’s, judging from the clothes that had spilled out of the suitcase.
    It will take time for forensic scientists to confirm the working assumption that the dead child was a female aged between 30 months and four years.

    What the investigators do not yet know — or are not saying — is whether they can get a DNA sample from the bones to compare with samples already on record: samples taken from offenders , especially sex offenders. Having DNA would also give police a tool to eliminate — or implicate — any “person of interest”.
    Anyone closely related to the child should be able to unlock the macabre mystery of what happened to her.

    South Australia’s major crime squad has made an educated guess that the person they want is in their state, most likely within close range.
    Taskforce Mallee has begun the investigation by doorknocking every house within 25km of Wynarka. Conscious of how easily investigations can veer off- coarse , miss vital clues or leave gaps that the guilty can wriggle through, detectives are taking their time, cross-referencing each inquiry so nothing is missed and nothing is left to chance.

    No one has to be reminded that other investigations of notorious murder cases have been hampered by slapdash initial police work and hunches that didn’t pan out.

    The Azaria Chamberlain case, for one. The Falconio case, for another. The Beaumont’s and “The Family” murders in Adelaide.

    Investigators are not revealing all they know about what happened to the child, because they have to keep some vital detail secret. Something only the killer knows and that timewasters don’t know.

    Police know the victim was a little under a metre tall and had shoulder -length fair hair. They know that as long as seven years ago she died extremely violently, almost certainly murdered.
    Certain fractures suggest she was bashed to death.
    A defence lawyer might argue that such injuries could be accidental — but why would anyone hide the body of a child who died in a genuine accident?
    The killer or someone close to him or her then covered the body in a pile of clothes — maybe in a empty room, a cupboard or shed. Then they left it for years — long enough to be reduced to a skeleton. Then, probably early this year, something happened — something that prompted whoever had hidden the body to want to move it. The killer or an accomplice jammed the clothing and the skeleton into a suitcase and took it from the hiding place.
    Why? Perhaps they had to move house and feared the body would be discovered by others.
    Perhaps they were jittery because of publicity about prosecution of other child killers.
    The brilliant detection of Daniel Morcombe’s killer — Brett Peter Cowan — generated nationwide publicity after Cowan’s Supreme Court appeal failed in May this year.
    In April there was a spate of fresh publicity about William Tyrrell’s abduction in northern NSW last September. Either, or neither, might have been enough to spook a child killer.
    Whatever the reason, someone took the suitcase from the hiding place to Wynarka.

    It is tempting to assume it must have been moved in a vehicle, but that does not necessarily tally with the strongest clue police have: that a man with a suitcase was seen in Wynarka sometime between March and May.

    WYNARKA township has about eight permanent residents. Early one autumn morning this year, roughly a quarter of the population — Denise Edward’s and Monica Martin — were walking their dogs when they saw something that stuck in their minds.
    It was a man , aged about 60, walking briskly up the main street towards the Karoonda Highway that links Wynarka with the world, or at least with Murray Bridge.

    The man was average height , lightly built and neat looking, with short grey hair.
    He was a complete stranger to both women, who are locals bred and born and tend not to mix with the “blow ins” who appeared in the district chasing cheap rent when the permanent community started shrinking a generation ago. The most unusual thing about the stranger was that he had a large suitcase — and was carrying it rather than wheeling it, as if it weren’t heavy.
    As Monica recalled this week, “He wasn’t labouring, and he was walking briskly.”
    Her vague impression was of a man on a mission.
    The stranger was close enough to see both women but he made no eye contact and no greeting, unusual in the country. There was no sign of how he had appeared in the street but it seemed unlikely he had walked all the way from some other area. It seemed likely that either a vehicle had dropped him there, or he had walked from relatively close by.

    The problem for police is that if he arrived in Wynarka by vehicle he could have started his journey almost anywhere — over the boarder in Victoria, for a start.
    Against the theory that he hitchhiked is that a middle-aged man carrying a suitcase should have stood out enough that motorist would have remembered seeing him and reported it, especially if they had given him a ride.
    In an era of backpackers and cheap cars, you could drive around Australia and not see anyone carrying a suitcase on the open road.

    INVESTIGATORS are eliminating the most obvious possibility: that the man came from one of the former farmhouses rented cheaply to transient tenants who come to the backblocks to escape unhappy pasts, unpaid debts and people who ask questions.
    Some outsiders like isolated houses because they can produce (and consume) drugs there.

    Others, like the grotesquely inbred family finally uncovered in rural NSW in 2012, move regularly to isolated districts to stay a step ahead of the authorities.
    That family, product of three generations of incest over 40 years, moved from New Zealand to South Australia, to Victoria and back to South Australia before their final move to a remote valley outside Canberra.
    No outsiders would have known if one of the dozen feral children in the family had died — or been killed.

    As forensic experts do there best to extract usable DNA from the tiny bones, the investigators have been chasing leads on the clothes and the quilt found with the suitcase — and the case itself. The clothing is mostly cheap and mass- produced, much of it available all over Australia from stores like Target. Probably the most distinctive garment is a glittery dark blue tutu.
    There is also one pink slipper-like shoe with a butterfly emblem.
    Police have traced the likely origins of most of the 50-odd items of clothing found. But five brand names have not yet been traced back to retail outlets.

    One is “Sally”. Others are “Miss X Australia”, “HF” and “Gaf” . The oddest one looks like HAOLAILH, printed on the tag in uneven capitals.
    Police dressed a tot-sized mannequin in a new version of the blue tutu in the hope it would jog someone’s memory.
    So far , it hasn’t, even though only 28 of the tutus were sold in South Australia in the last eight years. Each sale has to be traced.
    Perhaps the most intriguing clue is the quilt. It is a “one – off”, apparently homemade from mostly hexagonal patches of brightly patterned material but machine – stitched , not hand sewn.
    On one hand , it could have been made by a relative of the girl’s — a loving grandmother, perhaps. Or it could have been picked up at an opportunity shop or some other charity.
    Either way, investigators want anyone who thinks they recognise it to tip them off — even anonymously.
    The other clue is the suitcase itself. Like the clothes, the Lanza brand case is “budget” quality.
    Lanza is the cheapest line of brands sold by the national luggage retail chain, Standbags.

    Police have learned that the store “gave away” a large number of the suitcases for as little as $9 each several years ago. Any one of them could have ended up in a charity store, or been picked up from the street during a hard rubbish collection, even recycled at a tip.

    The suitcase is variously described as “faded blue” or “grey”, although police have used a black model to use for publicity purposes. Whatever it’s original colour , it looks as if it was severely weathered before the guilty party put the clothes and bones in it.
    The police suggest the Lanza was sold exclusively by Strandbags outlets at Murray Bridge, McLaren Vale, Rundle Mall, Salisbury and Elizabeth.
    The question of whether it could have been bought in Renmark or Mt Gambier or over the boarder in Mildura or Warrnambool — or at any of the other dozen or more stores in Victoria — remains unanswered.

    AS the investigation moves into it’s second month, the neat man with the suitcase seems the strongest lead.
    Everyday that he fails to come forward to clear himself confirms him as a better suspect.
    The police officer who took charge of the case last month, Detective Supt Des Bray, has since gone on leave. Before he left he said : “The man with the suitcase is a bit of an unknown that could be something or absolutely nothing to do with the investigation. It is really strange that nobody has been able to identify him”.
    Police have spoken to more than a dozen witnesses who saw the man matching the description of the “suitcase man” in the Wynarka district during the autumn.

    Two specific sightings were on April 13 and May 26. Either there have been two men, both with suitcases, or the same man was walking around the district on and off for weeks.
    And then vanished.

  25. Could the suitcase man be from Murray Bridge. Even though it has been said, that was not a local?, — I still can’t workout why he choose a remote, yet at the same time, a much travelled highway to drop of the suitcase. And if he was in fact deliberately leaving it there to be found, then why all the way to back blocks Wynarka, instead of leaving it in a say Murray Bridge in a park or somewhere, if he was afraid to drop it off at outside the a police station.
    I am not convinced that he was not a local, or at least was from a 20 km plus radius of the Wynarka region. Otherwise unless he is still hanging about in this remote area somewhere hiding out, why pick Wynarka. Why not just hide the suitcase in the scrub, like serial killer Ivan Milat did in Belanglo State Forest. Or in the Wynarka region at closer by Lowan Conservation Park.
    Also if he did have a vehicle or someone drove him to Wynarka area, could he as just smartly have drove on to the Lowan Pine Forest and left it there, where the suitcase might never had been found, at least not for another seven years. I am not a sick individual thinking of these possible scenario’s of disposing of a suitcase, but merely trying to profile the thoughts that a murderer, would maybe think of, if he or she, had to get rid of this suitcase of the child’s bones, because it had to be removed from its previously unknown location? As some serial killers and panicking murders like Adrian Bayley , have done, they go to a remote area, they know of , then dig a shallow grave and bury there victim or victims. Ivan Milat covered some of his victim’s in bushes or branches after cutting them up. The suitcase man, may not be the actual murderer, but I bet London to a brick, he knows who did murder or accidentally kill the child. Otherwise I would think his conscience and the nationwide publicity pouring all over this case, would have put pressure on him to divulge his dark secrets and come forward to assist police and clean the matter up.
    But the “suitcase man” looks like he is not going to come forward. Maybe more foul play, from who he was or is associated with. Or maybe he has even now committed suicide over the burden of his actions?… Whatever he is a very cold, individual, if he can just look back, at the gravity of this very heinous child murder crime, and stay hidden in the darklands. But that is what these murdering degenerates are so good at. They live amongst society, even after getting out of jail on heinous predatory terms of imprisonment, and go back to a normal life, like child killers Paul Aiton and Greg Domasezewicz and Ivan Milat, Adrian Bayley, Peter Dupas, they don’t see them selves as murdering predators and have no soul of conscience. The taking of a child’s or adult human life, is like chopping up a piece of meat or firewood to them, and they when caught, handle jail on protection without incident, become the model, well behaved prisoners. And those killers that are never caught, or get off with a good defence lawyer, they move on somewhere new, living in the community like a camouflaged cameleon, oblivious of the evil Cretan they really are, and gotten away with there hideous callous terrible crimes of taking human life most violently!…

  26. This killer nutcase Sean Christian Price, is going to be a very difficult prison to manage in a high protection unit jail. He is definitely the face and mind of a serial killer. And now he has pleaded guilty to the innocent young students murder, it has now been exposed in court that he had a interest in Ivan Milat and other less famous Australian serial killers. The sad and disappointing thing about this Sean Christian Price, low life, is the criminal justice system, the Adult Parole Board, failed to take a the usual risk assessment over criminals rights to rehabilitation, and didn’t consider him still a danger to the community?. And further more on his prior dangerous and threating offending , still stamp his parole accepted and let him out of jail only late in 2014. And that he had a well known of extensive sick and violent criminal past and prior imprisonment of difficult management behind bars and still set him free back into the community, unsupervised to stalk and hunt for more victims, The very same as the justice system allowed released from jail, teenage girl murderer Steven James Hunter, the same with Peter Norris Dupas and Adrian Ernest Bayley. The do-gooders of justice are never the victims of these evil killing repeat offenders, but the collateral damage is the senseless death of a young innocent life.
    One can now finally hope the sicko killer Sean Christian Price will now suffer like his murdered young victim, only in his case the eternal suffering of a life of hell, in a Maximum Security isolation – high protection unit, prison cell. And left like Bayley, Hunter and Dupas to rot and never be free from prison again!… The suitcase man, is now in hiding, fearing he to will be facing the rest of his days behind bars, if he can’t convince the police and later a jury, that he is not a murderer or an accessory to covering up a horrible child murder!…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

  29. Reagan I agree, so many unknowns, the police are keeping something under wraps?…
    After going over the media police interviews, the have very confidently said the mystery suitcase man , does exist but may not be the killer , ok fair enough on that, they need more hard evidence rather than conspiracy assumption’s and false leads, leading on a wild goose chase, but they also in another media report say that William Tyrrell’s disappearance is nit related and ruled out to be the suitcase man and the bones, are a girls, not William Tyrrell’s. But they say they haven’t got the DNA results to confirm this as yet. There being girls clothes in the suit case, then it most likely is a girl. But William Tyrrall has never been found, only a spiderman toy in the suspects vehicle was found. So is that enough to rule out no connection to the suitcase bones. Well I don’t know. After the Derek Percy case in Victoria in the late 60’s, he is proof that serial killers, and maybe others like him were abducting and murdering of many unsolved cases of children , in different states of Australia during there killing sprees. This suitcase man if he does exist and is in his sixties and just vanished without trace, certainly is acting like a cunning child killer or maybe serial killer. There are so many unknowns on the reliability of the witnesses, apart from then being born and bred in the area. If the suitcase man was seen at two different times between march and may by different witnesses . Why did he hang around for a month and risk certain identification by different people ? And the suitcase had been looked through by different people also who also haven’t bothered to be keen to come forward. The suitcase man, may never have existed or may have been a concocted story to protect the identity of the real possible killer ,who may be a local after all. Which could explain why he has just vanished. Because he never left the area in the first place, but people who know him are covering for him, for reasons unknown, as he may even be a farmer. While I am not directly blaming the locals of a cover up, I am not eliminating them of any connection to the suitcase or the suitcase man either. The more you try to think about a possible scenario outside the realms of probability, the more puzzling the origins of the suitcase man get. If he did exist as witnesses say, then he is either still in the area or he is lost in the sticks or is sitting back in some far part of Australia, laughing at how he has got away from the dragnet. In any case wherever he has fled too, he has no conscience of what he has done, or he should have come forward to eliminate himself by now. The police either know far more about him than they are telling the public, or they have no clue , either way its confusing , if he really did drop of the suitcase, where it was weeks later found.! I still think some psychic help would be a clue, to maybe tracking him down, or some sort of psychic vibe from the child’s clothing maybe?… Sticking to the facts, does not seem to be getting any new leads on solving this mystery?… Well going to bed, its doing my head in. thinking about sleuthing the mysterious suitcase man gone walkabout?…

    • Yeah, doing my head in too. The sighting of suitcase man is fairly vague. Well dressed? What does that mean? Well dressed to me maynot be well dressed to someone else. WHAT was he wearing?
      Only other thing I’ve been thinking of is why there, why now? Wynarka appears to be the last remotish town before Tailem Bend. Did the person who placed the suitcase there want it to be noticed and thought the last small populated town was best option traveling toward the larger towns? All that does for me really is suss out little towns further out…re house sales. I still think there was a change of residential circumstances…..whatever that was?

    • IMO the man seen with the suitcase was not hiding it but searching for it.
      He was carrying another less conspicuous case to conceal it in if he found it.
      I think the faded grey case with the child’s remain had been taken without permission to blackmail or threaten him.
      Why else would all the clothes and the bones still be together?
      If someone was intentionally disposing of the case to conceal a murder the bones and clothes would be separated and hidden much better than this.
      The idea that he was searching for the case also explains why he was seen over such a long time period in different places.

  30. Your spot on Milly , the police need to take a fine toothed comb, over all house sales and rental property records of recent clients that made a exit from this Wynarka region.
    Looking at this Wynarka main street to the Karoonda Highway, – ‘The Suitcase man’ would have definitely stood out in the central business district main streets of Wynarka, by observant locals. I wonder if he used the lonely telephone box or sat on the park seat. There is also a bus stop on the main street. Surely he didn’t get on or get off the bus here. Does the bus go to Murray Bridge or Tailem Bend, on a daily basis?
    I think police would surely check out all this districts real estate agents, for past or recent tenants to rental properties and house sales. And look around run down empty houses for sale, or do they need a search warrant before looking through rental or for sale properties?
    Also I wonder whether any South Australian real estate agents at least from the 100km perimeter of the Murray Mallee area towns would have CCTV footage , of any of their clients handing back rental property keys? Or a man seen fitting the description of the neat dressed ‘suitcase man’? Also Murray Bridge would have CCTV in certain places. Just thinking how Sean Christian Price was recorded on CCTV all over the place, in shops etc. May be a business in Murray Bridge or Tailem Bend, Berri, Renmark, could have a recorded image of him somewhere? I suppose that is the disadvantage of country life, less of a chance of CCTV, observing the populations every move. Still their are not many pubs or takeaway food shops and petrol stations and supermarkets, bottle shops etc, that don’t have CCTV, nowadays to protect their business against shop theft and robbery. He must be on surveillance footage in some places he has visited in South Australia or across the borders? If the suitcase man have been carrying the suitcase in Adelaide for example, there is a chance he may have been spotted somewhere on CCTV. But him choosing a remote town like Wynarka, he knows he would less likely be watched by this surveillance so popular in the big towns and cities today. …………………………………………………………………………………..

    • This is obviously a massive task for the sapol. Personally, apart from identifying THE quilt, someone recognising the clothing items which they have seen on the little girl……or suitcase man; where do you start?
      CCTV is going to be tough, again, where do you start? I still wonder if the post office has CCTV, even if it’s an agent? I wonder if there are rules put in place by Australia Post for any agents to have video surveillance?
      Real estate is an option and I’m sure they are investigating all avenues there. Another thing that came to mind, if this suitcase guy exists, then perhaps he has been diagnosed with a terminal illness? Perhaps, rather than a residential move, he is ill and needs to free his conscience. There had to be a catalyst for that suitcase to be placed there after all these years.
      If he took the bus, I’m sure they would know who he is by now. I’m trying to fathom how big this investigation is……and I’m thinking it’s going to be some time before the task force filter through alllll the information they have at hand at this point in time….. Might be some time before we get to know any further information, if any.

I’m out to lunch as well on the clothing, could have been purchased at op shops or online. It does puzzle me though, some of these brands. The most puzzling and perhaps most significant to me is the Haolalu? Brand……I have searched and searched this brand and come up with zilch apart from a Thomas Tank top on the site brownbag. The label cannot be seen though and I have emailed the seller, as yet no reply :( I just wish the photo of this label was clearer, thumbs are covering the last letters which makes it difficult to know what they are…

  33. No wonder the SAPOL Police task force chief has gone on leave. What a case this is to crack. Could be harder than Jack the Ripper.
    Most Australia Post Post Offices have CCTV watching over the counter and the post office shop.
    But with sub contractor Post Office agents , in small town, i’m not too sure. You would still think they would, have some CCTV as a deterrence to stealing these days, as mostly all shops or banking agents would. Even railway stations and shopping malls and all hospitals and aged care home have CCTV. Even taxi cabs for the safety of the cab driver. Once the police workout who this suitcase bloke is, then CCTV somewhere will have recorded somewhere, even if he is far away in another distant state. He will need to be watching over his shoulder and remember he is now one of the most wanted men in Australia. Also I wonder of the police have got any fingerprints from the suitcase, they can match, with the suspect if he is eventually located somewhere? Although the other people unknown that looked through the dumped case, pulling out the child’s clothes would also maybe have left some fingerprints behind?
    Well got to go, got a group of very angry young ice using drug addicts are having a violent argument just up the road from my house. So I’m turning off the lights and going to bed, is just not safe anymore , with all the arsehole junkies wandering and creeping around at night , looking for someone to steal from, and never a police patrol car to be seen in the area. Were living in a very dangerous world now, you just can’t trust anyone, especially your some of the young drug using neighbours. The middle of the morning the creeps all come out high on ice. You wouldn’t dare approach them , just stay hidden until they passed by.

  37. I of course am very interested in this case and the mysterious man walking along the highway. Thought I would chime in. The man – to me, this is the best way to find out about the girl. So he is about 60, we may assume that he kept the girl for a while or his associates and dressed her. He is obviously on a lower income or a pension – that is a clue. The clothing and baggage, even he is on the lower end of the spending scale ie. shops at dymples or whatever. Now, he is neat, what does that say, could be believe cleanliness is next to godliness – a religious man? That’s clue 2. The third clue is the prompt to rid himself of the suitcase (and the remains). If he is 60, that makes his mum around 85 -90 years old based on those times. Women live longer at that age, so I think that his mum passed away last year. I think it took a while to sort out the estate etc. as he is not the hurrying type. That’s clue 3. That his mum died last year. I would also guess he does not live in an inner city, probably more than 20 kms out. My theory is outskirts of Melbourne but may be mad.

  38. I think Reagan your right, about this dumped murdered child being a product of gross child neglect or even worse the disposal of a victim from a hidden paedophile ring.
    Also this man was allegedly seen neat dressed?. He could be on Centrelink records as a unemployed or on a pension or child support or Heath card, Medicare, which could be another way of identifying him, as he would be collecting welfare benefits if he is low income or from poor background? So he would be on CCTV at his nearest Centerlink branch office? If he is still working in South Australia, someone must know him, if he is rather strange in his behaviour? Even if he has no friends or associates, someone must know him. Does he go to play the pokies or have a drink in the pub?
    Is he a racing TAB regular gambler? It is unlikely he is in a aged care facility or in hospital, because he would not have been fit enough to be walking in such a remote area if he was sick of dying? Unless of coarse he had terminal cancer or something?. He may go to a doctor though, who could suspect him somewhat strange? Perhaps he left behind one of his hairs in the suitcase, which DNA, could link him. I would think the police checked or hair samples apart from the child’s.

    I am regularly looking in Vinnies charity shops for old music records that people throw away, anyway to cut to the chase, I saw this rugged looking bloke walk into the shop and ask the lady working on the counter, if they had a suit and clothes, because he has not much money and needs some smart looking clothes because he has to go for a interview at the local meat works factory and wants to improve his changes at getting the job, even though the job was for a un-skilled worker.

    The point is if this suitcase man was neatly dressed, does not mean he was in new clothes or a businessman. He was possible very poor, and was wearing charity shop clothes. Also the child’s clothes in the suitcase, could very well have been from a charity shop. So people sadly are very neglectful with their treatment of children, and the fact that this murdered child was dumped by this alleged suitcase man, and the fact that no parent or step parents, or grandparents have reported this child as missing is very suspicious indeed. One only has to look back in the past, of the heinous Daniel Valerio’ beating and child abuse murder committed by Paul Aiton, and the death of Jaidyn Leskie attributed to the child neglect from Greg Domaszewicz.

    These are just two well known of cases of children killed in horrific child neglect circumstances.
    There would be literally many thousand of reported and most disturbing un- reported cases of
    child abuse and incest , child beatings and maltreatment , that is never heard about committed by these type of violent evil unsuitable parents that should not ever have children or had then removed from their custody.
    And then their are the unknown , of who know how many of them that are out there free stalking and organised Paedophiles and Paedophile Rings or sex slave trafficking evil predatory cunning mongrels from all walks of life.
    This suitcase man if he even did exist?, could not be the only person or (predator) involved unless he or she was the sole murderer ?, which, I use the word “person’s” very loosely!
    Someone and likely others involved out there know how and why this child was murdered and dumped.
    But as this murdered child has not been missed by anybody, especially a ‘parent’ or ‘next of kin’?, It is going to be very difficult to find the parents of this child, if they have choose to disown and neglected her by child abuse and violence or ‘inbred redneck hicks’ that have been responsible for her murder and who knows what else, while she was still alive?

    The role this suitcase man has played is also a mystery, is he a paedophile. a grandparent or just some psychopath out there on the loose? Identifying the suitcase man will be a start, but until then it is all just speculation and no concrete facts or identifiable proof that he did exist? And as the suitcase man is not keen on coming forward, either that or he is now dead, from sickness or foul play or committed suicided or got lost in the scrub somewhere?… How can this murder investigation find some other clues as to how the suitcase got in Wynarka and where did it originally come from?……………………………………………………………………………………

  40. CASE 1 : – The worst inmate that I experienced was the then in 1991, 54 year old serial paedophile child killer Robert Arthur Selby Lowe who did the most despicable sex acts imaginable when he abducted a innocent defenceless six year old little girl ,Sheree Beasley out riding her bike to a milk bar and this hell beast grossly brutally murdered her, committed the most heinous of sexual acts, by choking her from forcing oral sex on her, and disposed of her naked body forced down a dirty drain, in 1991. He was sent away for life, never to be released in 1994, for this horrible child sex murder. He is now 78 years old in jail and being held in the highest of special segregated protection paedophile prison for the worst hated serial sex offenders, called the Village of the Damned or Corella Place, outside the walled Ararat Prison. More on evil Lowe’s time in Pentridge Prison protection later.

    CASE 2. Then there was Charles Ian King then aged 20, and Christopher Russell Lowery, then aged 21, who both committed the sadistic thrill killing murder of a 15 year old girl , Rosalyn Nolte back in Christmas 1970.

    They were the last Victorian criminals sentenced to be hanged in June 1971. But when the death penalty was abolished in Victoria in 1973, there sentence was reduced to 60 years in jail with a minimum of 50 years. But in 1996 they were granted parole, and were set free, aged 62, from prison by the ‘Victorian Adult Parole Board,’ the same parole board that set free then thought rehabilitated serial rapist, later to become mutilating serial murderer – Peter Norris Dupas.

    Lowery and King induced and offered the young girl a ride, who was innocently out just walking her Corgi dog in the main street of Hamilton country Victoria. 260 km from Melbourne. They abducted her into their car, a Holden panel van, then drove her to a remote location at Mt Napier an old extinct volcano cone where the subjected her to an eruption of violence and a very slow gruesome death, whereby they stripped her naked, apart from her socks, then beat, stomped on her back and kicked her repeatedly with such fury that her elbow was broken. The sadists then tied electrical flex around her neck and dragged her into the bush where they completed the job of trussing her.

    The flex was looped around her throat, her legs were drawn up behind her, the wire was looped again around her ankles and the end of it secured her wrists behind her back to painfully strangle her to death.

    The weight of her body slowly strangled her in the most horrible way to slowly die.
    Lowery and King watched then left her there.
    Then left the old volcano site leaving the strangled murdered young killed they had played and tortured to drive back to their home town of Hamilton. On their way back to Hamilton, the killers freed Rosalyn Nolte’s little dog. They then visited a pinball parlour, then calmly dropped around to the home of Christopher Lowery’s parents- in- law, played cards, went to a drive- in movie theatre, taking Lowery’s pregnant wife and a couple of friends with them, and in the early hours of the morning, went to bed.
    It was six days before Rosalyn Nolte’s body was found.
    Christopher Lowery’s signed police record of interview related around Christmas 1970, he and Charles King had decided to see what it would be like to “kill a chick”. That the idea “just sort of built up”, and when they saw Rosalyn Nolte on the street , they decided the chance had come.
    Charles King’s police interview also referred to discussions with Christopher Lowery about “killing a chick”. King said the talk originated with his mate Lowery, and that he didn’t take it seriously.
    The two “mates” turned out to be cowardly finger – pointers, each laying the blame on the other.
    By the time the case reached court in 1971, Christopher Lowery would claim the whole affair was Charles King’s idea, that King had done the killing, that when he had tried to stop him he had been knocked to the ground and that all he had done, in the end, was lend minor assistance in tying the girl.
    Charles King, on the other hand, said his memory of events was marred by taking methedrine and LSD and that all he could recall was getting out of the van, coming across Lowery and the girl, and seeing Lowery kicking her as she lay on the ground. He further recalled that Lowery had his hands on the girl’s throat and later was wrapping flex around her neck, and that Lowery might have told him “to hold her feet up or something”.
    One or both was lying. Even the story about Charles King taking speed and LSD was likely a confection. The court heard that Christopher Lowery gave Charles King a note in the holding cells telling him he should confess to taking drugs, and admit killing Miss Nolte while under the influence of drugs. The idea, it seemed, was that Charles King might get away with diminished responsibility and Christopher Lowery would walk.
    The jury didn’t buy any of it.
    The two murders were sentenced to death – the last people on Victoria to receive the death sentence. But the noose never went around their necks. On June 23, 1973, the Governor -in – Council exercised mercy and commuted the death sentences to 60 years’ imprisonment, with a minimum of 50 years. The two killers without a cause wouldn’t see daylight until 2023.
    But they were back on the streets after serving only 21 years. In late August 1992, they were freed after becoming eligible for a minimum sentence under Victoria’s new Sentencing Act introduced in 1991.
    Charles King had completed HSC, studied philosophy through Latrobe University, gained his bachelor of arts, got a certificate in arc welding, had exhibited photographs at the Shepparton Art Gallery, had directed theatre plays in Pentridge Prison, had involved himself in charity work and had help old people in a swimming program at a nursing home.

    Christopher Lowery, too had been involved in charity work, had studied sociology and philosophy and had completed university subjects on “Knowledge and Power” and “Religious Experience”.
    He had taken up karate, become a Buddhist and had studied the Japanese language.
    So they were out at the age of 39, instead of staying behind bars, as previously proscribed, until they were at least 68.

    Charles Ian King changed his name and, as far as can be ascertained, hasn’t been seen around Hamilton since. Perhaps he made good. he would be 62 now in 2015.

    Christopher Russell Lowery also changed his name , becoming Christopher Russell. But the model prisoner couldn’t keep out of trouble. Within a short period, he was turning up on court lists on Geelong on drug charges and discovering again what it was to peer out again behind bars.
    By 1995, police were tapping his phones, intercepting what a court was told were hundreds of calls to known drug traffickers and users. He even sold heroin to police five times in 1995 and was nabbed carrying a knife. In 1996, he was given two years’ jail and a Geelong Magistrate said he had nothing but contempt for society.

    By mid- 1999 he was back in the Geelong Court, this time for threating to kill a woman at a women’s refuge. He had chased the woman, yelling “You’ll be dead, you slut”, after she had been in a altercation at the refuse with Russell’s (Lowery’s) de facto wife. He got a two- month prison term, suspended for two months.

    In 2000, Christopher Russell’s (lowey’s) life had descended to the pathetic. Aged 48, giving his address as East Bendigo, he was a shoplifter. In September 2000, he was before the courts for stealing an electric toothbrush attachment.

    He took his own life in 2007.
    Rosalyn Nolte’s body lies in Branxholme cemetery , 25 kilometres south of Hamilton, within sight of Mount Napier. Her mother, who died three years after the horrible murder, lies in the same cemetery.
    And the answer to what might have brought two young men from an easy going country town to savagery remains unknowable.
    The citizens of Hamilton were in uproar in 1970. Nothing remotely like this horrible thrill killing murder had ever occurred in the area.

    Back in 1970, before committing the thrill killing murder, Lowery and King discussed with each other at a drunken weekend at a motorbike race meeting at Mt Gambier ,South Australia, a month before they decided to find a girl and abduct , violently bash, torture, strangle, leave suffering for dead with their thrill kill or as they said in conversation the wanted to see what it would be like to,— – ‘Kill a chick”! The court was later told before originally deciding to sentencing them to death by hanging in 1971,
    “The very nature of the killing showed it was sadistic and otherwise motiveless”.

    To be continued, more on Paedophile Predator Robert Arthur Selby Lowes hideous evil crime and his time mouthing off on special protection with only two other also high protection segregated inmates, one called Peter Reid, that he confessed to in jail that he had abducted Sheree Beasley, and told the prisoners that Sheree’s pink tracksuit had been dumped in a rubbish bin at the Mt Waverly Shopping Centre as it had been covered in his sperm, the prisoner he shared the protection unit with also said Lowe had proudly boasted that he had cleaned up Sheree’s blood. He said also that he had learned his lesson this time, and next time would use “Valium”? Taking by this Valium comment to another prisoner, mean he would kill another child again, but be more smarter next time, so he is not caught? Very frightening indeed this Valium boasted statement to another crim!…
    Prisoner Peter Reid also testified, that Lowe had told him that Sheree in fact while being forced to perform oral sex on him. He avoided these words however, calling them “dirty acts”. Robert Arthur Selby Lowe was said by his wife to be obsessed with the Karmein Chan murder attributed to a Mr Cruel at the time. He was I think eliminated as being Mr Cruel. Robert Selby Lowe was held on remand held in the highest secure safety confines of Jika Jika or K.Division Pentridge for his own safety from other prisoners. He wasn’t even safe in H.Division, as Mark Chopper Read, would have harmed him. He at the time was the most despised and hated inmate in Pentridge Prison. The lowest of all low inmates. How his acceptance and survival living amongst modern day prisoners, goes, where he is now serving his never to be released ‘life means life’ jail sentence, I am not aware or how his acceptance is amongst other deviate vile high protection predatory inmates. As far as was last known Corrections Victoria had him still being highly protected at Corella Place, Village of the Damned at the same residential cottages or units as the notorious paedophile prisoner , Brendon John Megson – alias – Brian Keith Jones, or Mr Baldy. Whether he is held in a walled area prison is a secret to the community. Hopefully he will die in prison like Derek Percy. Even if it is only a low security protection cottage prison.

    As in answer to the question would paedophiles stash evidence in such a obvious location as this suitcase of child’s bones. All I can say is, anything is possible with these evil beasts, and honesty have no idea, how they think, but a child’s life is worthless and very cheap , that is most certain by the way Robert Arthur Selby Lowe a paedophile thought in regard to disposing of a murdered child’s body, that he brutally murdered. But the mind set of a paedophile is with out a doubt beyond evil, but also stupidly cunning and also not so smart as with the evidence left behind by the suitcase man, if he is by chance a paedophile. So he may have perhaps panicked after he was allegedly seen by the two local women, and just left it off the road and quickly fled or was picked up by a friend or accomplice or another paedophile perhaps. And he looks like not coming forward to explain his actions of dumping the suitcase, so he is in some way involved in foul play with the murder of this child?… Unless he, and only he, can clear this matter with police of possessing and carrying child’s bones in a suitcase along the highway?

    As with 6 year old child victim Sheree Beasley, she was murdered by a cunning serial recidivist sex predator 54 year old Robert Arthur Selby Lowe, his method of murder most vile and foul how he choked the child performing forced oral sex on the powerless child and then chillingly decided to hide her naked dead body by forcing it down a stormwater drain and told a prisoner in jail he dumped her pink track suit which was covered in “Selby Lowe’s sperm” in a shopping centre rubbish bin.
    The pink tracksuit however was never found, as it would have at the time of the crime, being tipped into a rubbish truck and dumped in a general rubbish landfill, making it next to impossible to find and recover so long after the murder was committed by Lowe. Lowe to this day still say’s he is not guilty. As they these cunning predators all do. They take their evil murdering secrets to their graves? Derek Percy was stubborn up to his death, and failed to give closure to where he has hidden his murdered victims. So it is no surprise at all that this suitcase man, is not coming forward to speak about what his involvement is in this child murder and or what he knows about it?

  41. If the suitcase man did not leave the scene in a car and or was not picked by someone in a car. And did in fact proceed unknown whereabouts on walkabout only on foot, and is not from this Wynarka district area. Then unless he has some local knowledge of the district to hide out in somewhere, then he has either gone in the Murray Bridge direction or back east along the Karoonda Highway towards the boarder region towns. Such a long way to walk in either directions down the Karoonda Highway. But even more difficult if he decided to go only on foot along one if the back roads, north or south or go totally bush altogether? Unless he is in fact hiding out in the Murray Mallee region or someone property unknown to the farmer, or a owner farmer is in fact harbouring him, from the dragnet, that is suggesting that the child’s murder could be more locally committed after all.
    Once again so many theories, until this suitcase man can be located and found. Its a stab in the dark, and only speculation, but if he disappeared on foot, how far could he really get without help or vehicle or help from someone else locally involved? … Someone also not willing to coming forward to police, may have given suitcase man a ride out of the region. But why wouldn’t they also come forward, unless they have something to hide or are as much involved as the suitcase man in the careless dumping of these child’s clothes and bones?
    Until proven otherwise, I think suitcase man could still be in hiding in a safe house in larger circle perimeter of the Murray Mallee region. Unless he is the Bush Tucker Man and has good live of the land, survival skills, he could very well himself by lying dead also, waiting to be found as a skeleton, somewhere in the remote sticks, having died from thirst , hunger or exposure to the elements from being lost in the scrub? His body could turn up in this remote area, someday perhaps, as it is so vast and inhospitable in this little dessert area, of nothingness but large paddocks for miles , dust, dense bush scrub and scattered salt lakes as far as the eye can see?

    • Thankyou for the reply; What an awful job it must have been for uou to see these men alive, protected and being released. I am, as in most murders mindboggled at how a human being can even think let alone perform such crimes – my heart is so sad.
      I look at young girls around the age of 8-9 and can’t help thinking how this little girl didn’t reach this age and how all her future was snatched away….Such innocence and a life to be lived….that never will be now.
      And so many other cases if little innocents who’s future have been stolen…..
      Life should be life……nothing less with these men who hard no care for another’s life, and to take advantage of such innocence. It’s time life means life and no protection! These little ones had no protector at the hands of these evol individuals.
      My heart aches for all those tsken way before time in such horrific circumstances.
      I’m out to lunch still HM……..I feel this little one was meant to be found….reasons a plenty and nothing makes sense. I hope I am right…..nothing is right with this though, the little one has obviously suffered but I so hope not to a sexual predator…. not that it makes it any better.

  42. That Judge was a complete arshole to let that evil ill bred scum Lowry and King out I didnt know about that murder. How piss weak the prick thats still alive somewhere should be tracked down and shot right between the eyes. I knew about Lowe what a monster he should be 6 ft under too a disgusting putrid freak. They are only protected in prison although when Lowry and King were released nobody did anything to them in return such a shame for that young girl. So many redneck ill bred freaks in this country.

  43. If only The judges and Lawyers and Politicians would all feel outraged and the same way we the public do about all these endless vile evil murderers that intentionally kill, rape and abuse taking innocent children’s and adult women and men’s precious life.
    I may be wrong on this, but I am of the opinion that if a referendum vote was given tomorrow, to the ordinary, average Australian, on the return of Capital Punishment and Never To Be Released, Indefinite Life Sentences made mandatory law for Judges to hand out for Found Guilty, heinous committed crimes , by order of the Commonwealth and State Laws – Being the Sentencing and Crimes Acts of Parliament. Even if it mean criminals spend years in jail on death row, appealing there guilt of Capital Murder.
    Then most Aussies would vote the Death Penalty back in. And no Lawyers or Human Rights activists, Religious Priests, ministers, clergypersons or Chaplin’s, or any Political figures, should be allowed to vote because of their anti candle waving Capital Punishment beliefs, they would have to be exempt from a referendum vote, because they have a conflict of interest in bleeding heart, do-gooder, mercy and welfare for all the murdering and raping and Paedophile sex crime criminals. And their minority vote, would be enough to lobby and stop the return of the Death Penalty.
    This will never happen in Australia though we all know that?.

  44. The majority of judges are not there for the victims of crime they are all for the rights of the perpetrator and what they feel would benefit them. All those years I thought a judge was employed to put away the perpetrator and punish them I thought wrong. Its the other way around of course the victim gets the death sentence and the family gets a life sentence.

    They have all been released. There crimes were the worst in there day.
    Because the nature of the violent crimes are very long and complex, and would take for ever for me to type out on here, I have put listed “links” for you to look and enter them up quickly on Google search. And remember these inmates, although they did serve prison sentences in Victorian Prisons, they as usual were given mercy and deemed suitable by the Adult Parole Board as rehabilitated for early release from prison.
    They still committed the most vile crimes imaginable and should have all got life never to be released imprisonment……………………………………………………………………………………………

  47. The latest find , now, is a child’s book, and some torn material, which was recovered during a search being done by the South Australian Mounted, Police , searching along the Karoonda Highway near the settlement of Naturi. It is not known if the find is related to the murder.
    The police say they are doing a more detailed thorough search on horse back of the Wynarka area crime scene, with the better aid of using horses as they can cover longer distances quicker for the distant search in a 48 kilometre search path, in an easterly direction from Tailem Bend to Karoonda Highway, and conducted around the site where the child’s bones were found in a suitcase, in the mallee off road scrub terrain and they are also searching along the highway and railway tracks. The police horse riders are sitting up higher. The object is for them to search the road, and find whatever they can find, then call the task force police in an examine whatever they find.
    The police said the search was not being undertaken in response to any “positive” line of inquiry.
    The police task force were also still working through “256” potential names supplied through a Commonwealth and states database. They also said information is coming through Crime Stoppers. The public is critical to the investigation. Police suspect somebody unknown tipped out most of the contents of the suitcase, including the bones, before dragging it onto the verge.

    And also a sharp- eyed community member has noticed and reported an identical jacket on the online auction website, ‘eBay’, it is the same type and manufacture as the soiled girl’s jacket found in the dumped suitcase.
    The owner of the jacket has now donated the identical excellent condition jacket to the police for their use in their investigation. The SA Police Major Crime Mallee Task Force have said this is another lead and piece in the jigsaw puzzle. They are confident that each new detail brings them a step closer to finding out who this lost little girl is and who took her life. 20 specialist police officers are working on the case. Police are certain that the little girl was killed at another location.

  50. Sniffer dogs would be a excellent idea. Especially if all the bones were not found or some were dropped at another location, or the child was murdered in the sticks in this area? Pet Dogs are very good at burying, hiding, finding and digging up their own bones. And Police Dogs found be even better I would think.
    It does appear that the police now on a whim, suspect something to be found in this wider scale search area of 48 kilometres in relation to the murdered child bones? . The suitcase may in fact have been dumped at another nearby or faraway location and fossicker moved it to its last final location, where many unknown people had removed clothing from the suitcase, but left the child’s bones and not reported their find?
    I wonder what the police are searching for along the railway tracks also? Did the suitcase man walk west down them?
    If the child’s book and the piece of cloth found is from the mystery suitcase. Then how did these items end up so far away down the track, in the area near the settlement of ‘Naturi’, about half on the Karoonda Highway, between Tailem Bend and Wynarka?…The mystery deepens?
    Did the Suitcase man drop or throw them there, or was the suitcase once at this location also once instead? This could explain why the suitcase is so faded and weathered from the elements. It could have been hidden in this area for 7 years?
    Also the alleged suitcase man seen by the Wynarka local women, may have been carrying a totally different kind of suitcase, to the one that was later found. And may have nothing to do with the actual weathered suitcase?
    Although if this was the case, then the Suitcase man, if innocent of dumping the faded suitcase of child’s clothes and bone, should at least, have well and truly have come forward by now to clear his name of any foul play of this murdered child, and why he was in Wynarka around this time? Which means that if the suitcase man does really exist, then he is making himself very scarce because he either killed the child or knows who killed the child and that he was carrying the suitcase, before he dumped it for whatever his reasons maybe?…

  51. During my observations on the Naturi roads and all South Australian roads, I notice at least from the satellite maps view, without actually being there for real, that South Australia has virtually no discarded rubbish littered and lying around everywhere on the edges of the road and in the scrub.
    Go anywhere in Victoria and its a dump, untidy disgrace, there is empty drink cans and bottles and paper, discarded food packaging and general rubbish dumped everywhere along the sides of the roads, and sits there for years. And rubbish lying around the city roads is even worse.

    I suppose this has got a lot to do with South Australia having the 10 cent refund on all the recyclable bottles and cans. So they are not just throw out car windows on the edge of the road, or are often picked up, by the 10 cent refund treasure hunters.
    But the highways and roads certainly seem rubbish free, which must make it much more easier for the mounted police to find something in the scrub or just off the road, that stands out, like the child’s book and material and things that don’t belong there.

  53. The Australia wide 10 cent refund in all states, especially Victoria, would be a good incentive, to cash in all the recyclable plastic, glass and aluminium cans. And then they would be less likely to be lying around everywhere as low income people would pick them up as is done in South Australian and the Northern Territory. When I worked in the Victorian Prison, a work gang of prisoners used to have to crush all their Coke cans and they were bailed in wool bags and donated to the Scouts to raise them some funds. Victoria today is a lazy state, otherwise they would follow in South Australia and Northern Territory 10 cent refund. And it would be a good way for groups to raise some money from all the litter. There used to be cash a can in the 1970’s in Victoria and South Australia used to have 5 cent refunds. It used to be a good honest way of making a few bob. Go around after the footy and the shows and make some money from all the rubbish. But these days the younger generation with all their Mother and Red Bull etc, energy drinks, they live on and just throw them away every where and don’t give a shit about the environment. They seem to have plenty of money. When I was growing up it was a treat to have the then new Big M or a yahoo drink, Pasito, Passiona or Coke is the real thing!.as it was back then. And then after drinking it, crush the cans, collect them up and sell them at Cash a Can for about 2 cents a can every month for some pocket money. How times change. Its a such a lazy throwaway society now. And rubbish lying around everywhere, broken glass, paper, coffee cups, cigarette butts. Well in in Victoria its very bad anyway.. If Victoria was to bring in the 10cent refunds on drink containers it would create jobs. But the politicians are to stupid ti think of that, while flying around in a helicopter or being given political party funds donations from the Mafia or corrupt unions.

    The Victorian toddler who vanished yesterday was reportedly found dead in the roof of her home. The deceased child Nicki’s parents split earlier this year and her mother began dating another man who lived nearby? Her upset father Nick Coslovich told the Herald Sun he hadn’t been told where his daughter’s body was found or how she died. Victoria Police could not confirm the circumstances that led to Nicki’s death and how she came to be deceased in the roof of the Mildura house.
    The man who lived nearby who has been dating and seeing the deceased girls mother, in an outburst, very angry lashed out at the media, when asked a question?…………………………………

    The police are unsure at the cause of death at this stage? The mother and partner have been assiting police with their inquiries. There is a number of other people that are also assisting police with their inquiries with numerous statements. Three other sibblings are being cared for by relatives. Mr Coslovich the young girls father said Nicki’s grandparents were also in shock and his emotions were all over the place. “I know God’s taken angel back but he didn’t have to take it from me,” Mr Coslovich said.
    “I know her Nan and Pop are walking around like ghosts’.
    “Like it all hit me like a steam train. I’ll break down, cry it out and then I’ll just go numb”.
    “Right now I’m numb so I’m not feeling too much at the moment”.
    “I don’t know what happened. I don’t know where she was, where she was found. I don’t know to much”, Mr Coslovich said.
    He desribed her as a bubbly little girl. “She’d pretty much light up the room by walking into it smiling ,” he said.
    “If anyone felt sad, they were able to come over pretty much and get a cuddle and feel like the world was OK again”.
    Nicholas Coslovich , 30, said he did not know what happened to his daughter. Nicki Francis Coslovich,Aged 2, or how she died.

    A two-year-old girl found dead in the ceiling of her Mildura home was not the victim of a random attack, Victoria Police say. Describing the investigation as “verycomplex”. Acting Inspector Rebecca Olsen said the mother and her partner were assisting police. An autopsy was being conducted, and crime scene investigators remained at the property, she said.
    Acting Inspector Olsen would not, however, comment about potential suspects. Homicide detectives have been investigating since Tuesday afternoon.
    The girl’s had all lived with their mother , Peta-Ann Francis who told police she last saw Nicki when she put her down for a nap at noon. When she went to check on her about three hours later, Nicki was not in bed. It is believed Nicki Francis -Coslovich’s body was found in the roof cavity of her single-storey home in Oram Court Mildura.
    Mr Coslovich and the girl’s mother Peta-Ann Francis were together for seven years, before separating in February 2015. The mother had started a relationship with another man in the same street since then.

They are all low life scum and unfortuately the only thing in life they are successful at is breeding but they are hopeless at parenting its a sad shame for the child born into a doomed existance of a so called family they are lucky if they survive most dont or end up abused. This little one was unlucky nobody gave a dam and as for the mother shes a typical slummy, sloth, slob that doesnt deserve children the boyfriend looks like a peice of filthy shit he had a go at the camera man howing signs of guilt he most likely killed her. The mother is probably in on it too. All round I wouldnt trust any of them even the real father looks dodgy so much for children services ( child protection ) sitting on their fat arses sucking coffee all day behind the desk get out in the real world and visit some of those low income areas where children are at risk take a look at whats really happening in the burbs.

Another Paul Aiton type for sure. Its so in his agressive mad dog body language and the way he lashed out. I would very much like to know what his prior record is. Probably another arsehole with a known violent past , and a arsehole on ice as well!… And the father he might have not even known what happened, before it was to late, he does seem to be upset. But looking back at the pathetic sob story that the evil spear gun, chainsaw murdering cretan John Myles Sharp tried to put over after he murdered his wife Anna and Gracie and chopped them up and threw them in the landfill tip waste bins. Anything can and is possible. The Mother was grinning I think also? This is our future houso generations.

    I think this little girl found in the suitcase in South Australia, has been a victim of this type of violent, abuse feral background as well. Otherwise, she should have been missed after all this time, about seven years ago. The Crap out there with innocent defenceless children in their control and custody is so bloody frightening. There is so much of it going on behind closed doors, out of sight and out of mind, And I don’t know, how this child abuse culture can be avoided, as the Child Welfare services, are not around checking on these unstable ‘houso feral pigs’ and they breed like mice and don’t properly care and look after there children and step father or partners taking it out their neglect and child abuse in the vulnerable children, in these unstable home environments.

  58. A current serving Prison Officer told me the other day, the ice situation is so bad at the moment, in prison, that outside the walls of a the prison which I will not mention here for legal reasons, is having ice dealers leaving drop off”s or hidden stashes of ice, close nearby the prison outside perimeter property unfenced area’s, where the trustee prisoner work gangs, then have arranged with the prison pushers to pick it up at a arranged drop zone point and bring it by stealth past security, to the customers inside the jail to fed the ice addictions in the jail. The drug drops are happening so frequently that plain clothes Prison Officers are trying to detect the drug mules in the act, by hiding outside the perimeter prison ground after dark, to try and catch in the act and apprehend any of this ice pushers sneaking around the prison grounds, hiding and dropping off the orders of ice for the inmates.

    So if drug dealers are prepared to take the risk of getting the drug ice, to addicted inmates in jail, this is just an example of why ice addicted and robbery related criminals offenders, back in the outside world are getting out of control.
    And these prison inmates, that are getting this ice into the prisons, are when they are released again, have little or no chance of going to be good citizens, and supposedly rehabilitated, if they have readily been using these smuggled dangerous methamphetamine drugs in custody.

    Drug use and trafficking in prisons, has always been a problem and a role of the Prison Officer and Police is to detect and stop the supply lines. But crims are getting smarter at finding ways to get ice into the prisons. And apart from inmates using there contact visitors and their internal body cavities to get drugs into the prisons, the hiding of drugs in a secret locations outside the walls, is becoming something that present Prison Officers and Police are having to be ever vigilant against. The stashes can be hidden anywhere.
    And to ignore the endless quantities of ice getting smuggled into the user prisoners behind bars, is a recipe for more horrendous crime being committed by these ice addicted prisoners when they are released back into the community again. There not worried about getting caught again and going straight back to jail. When they can get this meth shit just as easy behind bars.

    As ice use is far from a victimless crime. And unlike Marijuana smoking. It is putting strain on the hospitals emergency wards. And combined with all the violent property crimes, criminal damage and domestic violence and even murder, being committed due to the crazy effects of ice and a cocktail mix of heroin use, which is making them even more unstable and worse, and this flow on effect is harming innocent people, and making society a much more dangerous place, while there ice addicted mind altering and violent crime and aggressive irrational behaviour, these addicted criminals are desperately doing anything they can to get hold of or pay off their debt to their low life drug dealers for their next hit!…

  61. Am I missing something in your above post – lia, but what’s with the ‘day and night working in Penola to cover his arse with the manager’, so long as the job was completed times weren’t noted he overnighted in Penola? and the very cunning he still stuffed up in Wynarka. someone always knows ahole!
    As I am not from South Australia, what is the reason for suggesting Penola?
    Please elaborate more on this! As Penola is far in distance from Wynarka region in South Australia?
    Who are you referring to as a ahole on here?
    Are you referring to the suitcase mans whereabouts after being in the Wynarka area?
    Do you know who the mystery man is, and that he was in Penola or working in Penola?
    What is the connection of Penola with Wynarka anyway?
    As Wynarka is a very long distance from Penola on a different highway and is more closer to Mount Gambier? Why Penola region?
    Do you know something about this area in relation to the suitcase mans whereabouts and any connection to this crime?
    As Penola is also a very long way even from Tailem Bend. Is there a possibility that the suspect was in Penola.
    If so this means the wrong area is being investigated.

  62. The police suspect that the location of Karlie Jade Pearce – Stevenson remains found in Belanglo State Forest in NSW, were aimed at focusing there attention there. They say that they suspect Belanglo is something to throw them off track. Detectives know the child’s remains were stored somewhere for a considerable time. Just why they were eventually shifted and then dumped in the Murray Mallee remains a mystery.
    While the identifications are a breakthrough, they mark the start of the real investigation.
    Whoever killed both in a brutal manner and callously dumped the bodies is at large.
    Just as public assistance was crucial in identifying mother and daughter, it is likely to be a significant factor in identifying the monster, or monsters, responsible for both their deaths.

    Police say Karlie Jade Pearce – Stevenson is not a victim of backpacker serial killer Ivan Milat, as he was jailed before she was murdered. However , whether they have checked out the movements of Ivan Milat’s nephew – Matthew Meuleman (nee Milat),19, also a sadistic thrill killer who violently murdered also in Belanglo State Forest with his thrill co-offender Cohen Klein,19, on November 2010. Rather strange is the fact that young Milat was living in this area in the timelime that the mother Karlie Pearce brutally murdered remains were found in Belanglo State Forest also in August 2010? . Unless this is just a coincidence, and there is another unknown perhaps ‘copycat’, Belanglo State Forest killer at large?

    Karlie’s skeletal remains were found in Belanglo State Forest in August 2010. Found along side her remains was a short-sleeved T-shirt with the word “Angelic” in pink text, a rose and a heart with angel wings. Karlie’s daughter Khandalyce Kiara Pearce, Aged 2 to 4 years at the time of her violent death. Was travelling around South Australia with her mum in 2008.
    Her remains were found inside a grey Lanza suitcase dumped by the side of the road at Wynarka, South Australia in July 2015. The distance apart between the mother and daughter remains is 1137km.?
    Khandalyce was killed at another unknown location sometime after late 2008?
    The murdered mother and daughter were last seen in November 2008, at Coober Pedy at Marrion shopping centre.
    The last positive sighting of them was on Saturday, November 8, 2008, when Karlie Pearce was driving on the Stuart Hwy, near Coober Pedy. It is believed in November 2008, they then travelled to Adelaide. It is unknown how long they stayed in the city before travelling to NSW, where Karlie was murdered, most likely in 2009.

    In September 2009, Karlie’s family made a missing person report. But the report was closed on September 10, 2009, after it was believed Ms Pearce – Stevenson was safe and well but did not want family contact.
    Police have said it is known that the mother and daughter stayed in caravan parks and places like that. Someone maybe able to tell police who she was travelling with, who she ate with and help identify the person responsible. People can identify if she has booked in under her name, they may have car registration numbers, credit cards used by another person she was with at the time or at a local shop, that sort of thing. If it can be identified where they have stayed, that will open up the door to the investigations.
    One critical issue is identifying a mystery man seen carrying the suitcase in and around Wynarka or by the roadside in July 2015?

    Police have 15 confirmed sightings of a Caucasian man, aged in his 60s, in Wynarka and around the town between April 13 and May 26, 2015.
    He had a neat appearance, light build and was of average height?

  64. Tragic, twisted tale involving the best and worst in society. Money poured in from people, many of whom are no doubt doing it tough, to ensure Karlie and Khandalyce will be buried alongside the poor grandmother. Meanwhile, Australia dreads learning their fate, inflicted by the worst who’ve ever been spawned

    So much that’s difficult to grasp

    neatly dressed older man carrying a suitcase on a long, lonely road. For some reason, he chose to deposit that sad old suitcase directly opposite a lonely outpost
    how did he come to be on that road ?
    how did he arrive there ?
    where did he go ?
    did he exist at all ?
    why didn’t he put that suitcase elsewhere, where it wouldn’t be found for years, if ever ?
    where did he get the suitcase ?
    did he know its contents ?
    was he instructed to put the case in that location ?
    if so, by whom ?

    To date, I haven’t read anywhere that police were informed that human remains were in the vicinity of the suitcase. Maybe I missed that information if police were informed. Otherwise, I can’t understand why police would travel to an isolated location to investigate an old suitcase near the side of the road and then stumble upon a child’s human remains nearby. There must be hundreds of old suitcases lying near roads in this country and I doubt police investigate those

    I don’t understand either why the media were permitted to publicise the full names of the two women who reported their sighting of the elderly man with the suitcase. I was shocked at the time. Surely witnesses are entitled to anonymity, particularly when they live in such an isolated and vulnerable location

    Police have revealed they have made contact with the individual who bought Karlie’s vehicle and police have said that person is not a suspect. Instead, say police, they wish to locate the individual who sold that vehicle initially. But surely the person who sold Karlie’s vehicle in the first instance would be identified on the transfer documents? Since then, the person who initially purchased the vehicle either sold or gave it to someone else and police are attempting to locate that person? Once again, shouldn’t that information be contained on transfer documents?

    Police claim Karlie’s mother lodged a missing-person document. One week later, according to the police, Karlie’s mother informed police she wished to withdraw that document. Police claim Karlie’s mother informed them that she’d made contact with Karlie and that Karlie had said she and Kandalyce were well and did not want contact with her mother. Police claim they cancelled the missing-person alert because Karlie’s mother had asked them to and because she seemed very relieved to learn that her daughter and grand-daughter were fine

    Coincidences do happen all the time, of course. Was it sheer coincidence that Karlie’s mother made contact with her daughter within days of lodging a missing-person report? Karlie and her mother are deceased, so all we have to work from are the claims of the police involved

    Police claim they were advised via DNA analysis that the remains discovered in Belangalo forest were those of a much younger woman who had not spent the majority of her life in Australia. Yet Karlie spent all her life in Australia. How can such a discrepancy be explained when we see in documentaries and read in the news that analysis of bones which are many hundreds of years old reveal – for example – that the skeleton of a monk dating back to the 7th century revealed he’d spent most of his life in Spain, even though the individual also lived and was buried in say, Scotland? Experts in those documentaries explain at great length how this and that mineral or element was deposited in the bones when the individual lived as a child in a certain location and afterwards, in other locations. The experts produce scans and other material as proof and claim there is very little if any margin of error. In other words, they are completely confident in what they claim and their claims are recorded as historical proof. This is conducted quite commonly on very ancient bones and the experts even claim to be able to tell what the individual ate at various periods in his lifetime, etc.

    Police claimed, after the unidentified skeletal remains were discovered in Belangalo, that her dental work had not been carried out in Australia

    So, police initially claimed that after extensive analysis, the Belangalo remains were of a young woman who had spent the majority of her life outside of Australia and that her dental work had been performed outside Australia

    Now, police are claiming the Belangalo remains are those of Karlie, a young woman who spent her entire life within Australia

    What’s not adding up here ?

  65. Yes Burleigh Beach lots of unknowns with the Angel killing in Belanglo State Forest and the mystery suitcase man. I wasn’t even following the Angel case that much, until the new findings of her DNA matching the murdered girl found in Wynarka. I like many originally suspected the Angel, Belanglo case, was just another another discovered horrible backpacker killing committed by notorious Ivan Milat or his thrill killing nephew Matthew Milat or perhaps a copycat killing?

    I don’t know if this is correct or not, but I have heard that a known paedophile in a NSW Prison is a person of interest and a suspect for this double murder. It is apparent that the Homicide police know more about this puzzling case, than they are making public. With good reasons, to secure a conviction on the killer or killers. They are confident that the killer or killers, have murdered the victims elsewhere, and deliberately dumped the mother ‘Angel’ in Belanglo State Forest, to make it look like a usual Milat style murder?… I wouldn’t be at all surprised they make an arrest in days to come. It would be a shocker though if the killer does turn out to be now in jail on other committed crimes and or is a convicted paedophile or previously been on parole.

    One thing is very certain, I would not want to go camping alone in Belanglo State Forest at night, with all its horror events over the years. If its not haunted, then it dam well should be!…

    One more thing , I heard that the old suitcase found in Wynarka could have been lying in this location for quite some time. So this suitcase man, may have just been snooping through the suitcase as supposedly other unknown people had been also. Maybe there is the killers DNA on it also as well as the murdered child’s DNA. Which could link it to the vanished without a trace mystery suitcase man? Also someone must know who this suitcase man is, or at least suspect him. As he was supposed to have been well dressed?… Was he infact the killer or a friend of the killer. It does appear that their may be the foul play of paedophila or child sex offender, for the child’s remains to have been retained for so long after the suspected murder took place around 2008 or 2009. Was the child held captive for a period after the killer or killer murdered the childs mother and dumped her remains in Belanglo State Forest. This is just me thinking of a scenario as to why the child’s murdered remains were not also dumped with the murdered mother Angels remains in Belanglo State Forest.

  67. :Wynarka/Belanglo murder bombshell: Karlie Pearce-Stevenson was victim of $90k indentity fraud after she was killed… – NT News … Video – “MURDER HUNT” – ten eyewitness NEWS –

    Police believe at least three people who lived in Adelaide northern suburbs stole from Ms Karlie Pearce- Stevenson’s bank account hundreds of times after her death, and even impersonated her in calls and text messages to worried relatives.
    SA Police’s head of Major Crime, Detective Superintendent Des Bray, revealed that police now believe Ms Pearce-Stevenson and her toddler daughter Khandalyce died in separate killings.

    “We believe that Karlie and Khandalyce were killed in mid to late December 2008 and the last confirmed sighting was in Charnwood in Canberra,” Supt Bray said.
    “We believe Karlie and Khandalyce were killed at different times and at different locations, but we can’t say any more about that at the moment”.

    Their bodies were discovered 1100km and five years apart — Ms Pearce-Stevenson in a NSW forest in 2010, and Khandalyce inside a suitcase dumped by the side of the road at Wynarka in SA’s Murray Mallee this year.

    Supt Bray said at least three people — one male and two females — had continued to use Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s phone and identity documents after her murder.

    He said her family in Alice Springs had been cruelly duped into believing she and Khandalyce were alive and well by a woman who phoned claiming to be Karlie.

    “We know that from time to time the message bank on Karlie’s phone was accessed … the offenders sent some replies to those text messages confirming that Karlie was alive and well and elsewhere,” Supt Bray said.

    “We know ,tragically, that some of those SMS’s were sent to family members, again to suggest that Karlie was still alive.

    “On at least a couple of occasions … a female represented herself to be Karlie in communication with either family or friends.”

    Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s family reported her missing in September 2009, but the report was withdrawn several days later after her family received information that she was still alive and well.

    Supt Bray said the deception was elaborate and involved at least three offenders.

    “People who we believe may be the offenders and others have taken over Karlie’s identity, her telephone, her bank accounts and her Centrelink and family payments,” he said.

    “It appears that those involved in her murder, and I say those only because we don’t know if there are one or more at this stage, they have retained her phone and it was used until mid – 2011”.

    Supt Bray said numerous deposits — including the wages of an unknown person — were placed into the bank account, with more than $90,000 in transactions between the murders and March 2012, when it was accessed at Charnwood in Canberra.

    Supt Bray said the three people had lived at, or been associated with, homes in Davoren Park, Hillbank, Holden Hill and Charnwood in Canberra.

    Transactions were recorded in SA, NSW, the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory.
    Police believe that in June 2010, a woman in a wheelchair impersonating Ms Pearce-Stevenson attended Central Credit Union at Elizabeth to update banking records.

    In December 2010 a woman claiming to be Ms Pearce-Stevenson also attended a compulsory interview with Centrelink at Salisbury.

    Detectives are investigating if it was the same woman on both occasions.

    “All up we believe over $90,000 was transacted through her account,” Supt Bray said.

    Supt Bray said police had “good suspects” and expected to quickly identify those involved in the fraud.

    “This investigation is going extremely well, last week we did a number of raids and in effect cast the net out and gathered a lot of information and that information significantly progressed the investigation,” he said.

    Supt Bray urged those involved in the fraud to come forward before they were arrested in order to clarify whether they were also involved in the murders.

    “We have a very strong focus on who may be involved and we have a very strong focus on people in this state who know they were involved,” he said.

    “Because it is certain that if we follow the money and investigate the financial aspect of the case fully, we will identify those people.”

    Supt Bray said it was not too late for those involved in the fraud to assist the investigation.

    “If they weren’t involved in the deaths of Khandalyce and Karlie they need to pick up the phone and call Crime Stoppers,” he said.

    “Anybody who does anything to assist those involved in this terrible crime, or impedes the investigation or withholds information deliberately, faces a very lengthy term in prison.”

    Supt Bray said he could not reveal further details about how many people had been investigated or the suspects.

    Police believe that at least one of those involved in the phone and bank scam was also responsible for the murders.

    Supt Bray said there was nothing to suggest that the pair had fallen victim to a serial killer.

    “It is something that you keep in the back of your mind as to whether this person could be responsible for something else given the terrible nature of the crime, but there is nothing to indicate that at this stage,” he said.

    Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at http://www.sa.crimestoppers.com.au

  68. Hello old friends …. well, the news tonight reported a 41 year old male has been arrested in relation to Karlie’s murder, but not that of her young daughter, Khandalyce.

    It’s surreal, isn’t it, to learn there are individuals out there who separated a young mother and her child and murdered them separately — then went off and used the young mother’s bankcard to buy McDonald’s and KFC fast food

    I read somewhere that Karlie’s card had been used in over 1000 separate transactions, also that someone had laundered their own (or stolen/drug) money through Karlie’s stolen bank account

    Other perpetrators fronted interviews with a bank/credit union and Centrelink. They poses as murdered Karlie

    Until more information is released, it looks as if Karlie and her daughter were sold off — separately. Karlie was used for money-laundering and identity theft. Khandalyce could be used to defraud Centrelink via child-payments. And those uses were just the beginning in both instances, very probably. Then there was Karlie’s vehicle — most likely at the lower end of the bids

    It all points to a network of sub-humans who are and have been walking around in our midst. To some, they’ve been neighbours. Many others have doubtless driven alongside them on our roads. For some, the sub-humans are and have been work-mates. People have slept with the sub-humans and even bred with them. They’ve stood next to some of us in bank and supermarket queues. They’ve been getting on with their lives in the knowledge a young woman and her child were brutally murdered and tossed into the scrub

    The same sub-humans succeeded in convincing Karlie’s mother that she was speaking with her own daughter and they went to Alice Springs where Karlie’s family still reside, and used Karlie’s bank card to buy petrol, etc.

    They got away with it for seven years, give or take a few months

    If someone hadn’t discovered a child’s bones in and around a battered suitcase on a lonely highway, they’d still be getting away with it and may have continued to get away with it for fifty or a hundred more years, at which point, little Khandalyce would have turned to dust and Karlie’s bones would have remained in a thick envelope in some dusty basement

    How many other victims are disintegrating in the bush and in shallow graves all over this country, never to be discovered or identified — people of no fixed abode whose families still wait for them to return, even decades later?

    Someone out there threw or placed a suitcase — stuffed with a murdered child’s remains amongst a sad collection of clothing — on that stretch of highway at Wynarka. How many criminal hands did that suitcase passed between before it landed there near the side of the road? How many favours were called in: ‘ Get rid of this suitcase, or else ‘ ? How many of those hands shifted the task to someone else? Whose hands actually tossed an ill-fated child’s remains into the scrub? Did the tosser even know what that old suitcase contained? Did they know they were passing tiny Wynarka when they tossed it ? Have they been punished for being so careless, because discovery of that suitcase’s contents was responsible for the manhunt now underway

    The big question is, of course — why didn’t any of the scum cover their tracks by burning or burying that suitcase years ago? Was it some sub-human’s ‘trophy’ ? Did they hold onto it because it aroused them to think of how the suitcase’s contents came to be that way?

    It’s been suggested that Khandalyce’s remains were retained because they held the power to black-mail someone. But if black-mail was a motive, a single finger-bone would have been just as effective and a lot easier to retain and hide

    Others have suggested Khandalyce’s remains and tattered clothing were kept by some sentimental individual, although I don’t agree

    Then we come to the ‘well-dressed’ older man allegedly seen walking repeatedly near the suitcase and also carrying a suitcase. From witness accounts as reported by the media, the man was not a local. Wynarka does not have a shop, a school, or a service-station. It has nothing other than a handful of weather-beaten houses and the entire population is comprised of eight persons, apparently. It’s said that the police have discounted the man as ‘ largely irrelevant’. But until an explanation is forthcoming, people are going to continue wondering why he came to be at Wynarka to begin with? How did he arrive in Wynarka and how did he depart ? Why did he return before and after the suitcase containing Khandalyce’s remains was discovered? Why was he in the vicinity of the suitcase containing Khandalyce’s remains? How strange that his appearance coincided with the discovery of the child’s remains. How many such ‘coincidences’ is it reasonable to expect the public to accept? Is it reasonable for the police to describe the man as ‘largely irrelevant’ ? Isn’t it more reasonable for the public to ask, ‘ Why are you saying he’s irrelevant ?’

    Anyway, the police have arrested someone now. Let’s hope it leads to some of our questions being answered

  69. Most of you will have heard the latest news by now. Daniel Holdom was apparently the driver of a vehicle in which his girlfriend’s two children were killed. The accident left Holdom’s girlfriend paralysed and wheelchair bound. As we know, a female in a wheelchair posed as Karlie after Karlie’s murder.

    Holdom goes by two other names. He was romantically involved with Karlie. He has been charged with Karlie’s murder

    A frug-running gang out of South Australia was selling drugs to Aboriginal settlements. The gang was discovered by police

    As a result of the car accident which killed his girlfriend’s children, Holdom’s licence was removed for 12 months. Perhaps Karlie was taken on as driver during that period ?

    I had been reading the posts about Karlie for about ten minutes when my computer was hit by a virus. The virus was impossible to click out of. The virus came with a voice-over which repeated endlessly.

    If anyone’s computer becomes similarly afflicted, you could try doing a System Restore to take your computer back to an earlier time. That’s what I’ve done and I’m running a security scan now, touch wood

  71. Hi BB
    Every aspect of this hideous crime is just evil, evil, evil and we don’t even know what happened to little Kandalyce. I had a terrible thought she may have been sold to a paedophile ring…..however, I don’t think a paedophile would have kept her remains. So hopefully little Khandalyce was at least spared that atrocity.
    I always have believed Khandalyce’s remains were meant to be found and this awful crime to be revealed. I posted way back that I thought this case would be a lot sadder than it was at the time Khandalyce was found…..but never imagined this.
    Hopefully it won’t be long now before all else us revealed and Khandalyce’s killer will be known……if not already.

  72. This what has turned out to be a worst case of evil double murder , I thought when the suitcase was first found with the bones, allegedly left of the road by a mystery 60 year odd man, was another South Australia, Snowtown, bodies in the barrel style murder. I even thought could it be the remains of the long ago missing Beaumont children. Well its even now turned out to be more bizarre and tragic that anyone could of imagined. The point to what I am trying to say, is that it just scares me to no end, what evil criminality both in the long ago past and also the recent past, and sadly the present and future heinous crime continue to be committed by the human being.
    Unfortunately particularly the most recent crimes of murder, are getting worse. There was the Daniel Morcombe abduction murder, committed by Brett Cowen, the Ivan and Matthew Milat clan, the other young Daniel missing and believed murdered unsolved case. And in Victoria in just a matter of months more of the worst cases of violent abuse and crimes of murder most foul against innocent children and young and elderly adult victims. The death penalty was abolished in 1973 in Australia. most at the outrage by do-gooders over the alleged hanging of an innocent man in Pentridge Prison in 1966. What is less known is that Ronald Ryan was made an example of by the then state of Victoria. In Prisons all over Australia in the late 1960’s and 1970’s there were equally as bad as todays breed of child killers that were also at there trials sentenced to death, but when the death penalty was abolished in 1973, they all had there sentences reduced some to life like Derek Percy and the Lowey and King case, and most of these evil Cretans escaped the hangman’s noose and were freed back into the community, and time and time again, reoffended with more heinous crimes. What I’m saying is the DEATH PENALTY or CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, must be reintroduced and used by Judges for all these many worse cases of murder and sex crimes on children. Would be future criminal need to know that they will hang by the neck until dead, if they are to commit these horrible crimes. Hanging wont stop crime, but it is a tool that should still be used for crimes so terrible on the innocent community.

  73. For what its worth, to the family and next of kin, I dedicate 3 songs for the memory of young mother “Angel’ Karlie, 20, found murdered in Belanglo State Forest NSW, and her little angel daughter Khandalyse, aged just 2, found in a suitcase in Wynarka South Australia. Their innocent lives where tragically but also intentionally taken by so much callous evil by the rotten excuse for a man ‘Daniel Holdom’ and also his not yet named accomplices in carrying out this hideous heinous murder. I am certain most people in Australia are now shocked by the completion of this investigations outcome. I certainly am. Anyway with out further mention about this horrible discovery of the murderers. I hope these chosen songs reach these young angels in heaven, and let them know that most of the ordinary people in Australia will forever remember that they did not leave this earth in vain. And hopefully their senseless murders will shame and shake up the leniency of many of the Australian Judges of the Justice systems courts that have and are still not handing out the maximum permissible prison sentences to the perpetrators of so many evil crimes frequently continuing to be committed by cunning evil criminals. Nothing has been learnt by the courts Judges are the horrendous innocent nurse Anita Cobby was so evil taken by a gang of cowards back in the 1980’s. And still today evil criminal are not getting harsh never to be released prison sentence. At least not until they have been so called rehabilitated by parole boards, then committed even worse rapes and thrill killings. The law is not up to the ordinary communities expectations. Judges and Magistrates are public servants for the good of the public safety, yet many of the judges choose to sway towards the mercy and welfare and rehabilitation of can’t be saved violent criminals. The harsh life sentences are written in the law books for use by the Judges, but they wont. The ordinary community are simply fed up, with lenient prison sentences and revolving door prisons. But the courts are failing to listen to the people. And violent nothing to lose criminals are back out free again in the community to stalk, hunt and take advantage of innocent victims. As Bob Dylan sings : The times they are a changing!…
    To sum this off its time the lenience of our Judges and Magistrates sentencing were a changing!!!..

    For Karlie and Khandalyse – Rest in Heaven.

    :GENE PITNEY – BLUE ANGEL.

  74. “Ex-partner if Karlie Pearce-Stevenson’s alleged killer questioned by police”. – Yahoo!7News – Video – :Man charged with murdering young mum. – new developments – “ANGEL”MURDER CHARGE. Police inquiries into Khandalyce Pearce murder continue…

    Hazel Passmore,33, hasn’t been charged, but detectives want to know what she knows about the brutal murders of Karlie and her daughter Khandalyce.
    Outside her Adelaide home this morning, Ms Hazel Passmore went from her wheelchair to the drivers seat.
    By midday she was seen stuck in traffic behind the wheel, after meeting with her lawyer the 33-year-old decided to go to the police. Ms Passmore is the former partner of Daniel Holdom, the man accused of killing Karlie Pearce-Stevenson.
    She arrived at Adelaide police station with her young son an new male partner at 1pm, refusing to answer questions to the media.. Her new male partner then lashed out abusive and angry at the media.
    After about an hour Ms Passmore left the station in an unmarked police car and is currently at an unknown location.
    The dark underbelly of Adelaide’s northern suburbs has been exposed again with the joint murder investigations of Karlie and Khandalyce Pearce-Stevenson.
    Ms Hazel Passmore and her new male partner are understood to have up to seven children between them and neighbours say police raided the house late last week.
    She’s been questioned about her alleged involvement in the theft of Karlie Pearce-Stevenson’s identity.
    It is alleged a syndicate stole nearly $100,000 from her bank account.
    Detectives and forensic accountants are following a complex trail of financial deception including bank and Centrelink fraud.
    It has also been revealed that in January 2011, two years after she was murdered, someone used Karlie’s identity to set up a business name – KP Exploration Drilling.
    A house at Hillbank was raided by police last week. Holdom and Passmore once lived there together. As can be seen in one chilling released photo, Khandalyce is pictured standing alongside Ms Hazel Passmore’s later deceased son. The alleged murderer Daniel Holdom and Khandalyce were seen at this house, neighbours worried about the welfare of the children still inside.
    They left abruptly in 2011 leaving behind their possessions , her prosthetic leg,including a shrine to her two children killed in a drug driven car crash by her then partner Daniel Holdom .
    The investigation is continuing.

  75. “INNOCENCE LOST WITH TWO BRUTAL MURDERS”
    WITH her strawberry blonde hair and angelic face, the six-year-old looks at the camera without a care in the world.

    In this candid photograph, obtained by the Sunday Herald Sun, Karlie Pearce-Stevenson can be seen blowing up a balloon at a friend’s birthday party in December 1994.

    Friends say the image bears a striking resemblance to her daughter Khandalyce and her mother, Colleen.
    They say Ms Pearce-Stevenson was known for her “gorgeous” smile.

    14 years later to the day, Karlie would be dead — allegedly at the hands of her former lover.

    That man, DANIEL HOLDOM,41, was last week charged with her brutal murder after her remains were found by trail bike riders, where they had been dumped in the Belanglo State Forest, New South Wales in 2010.
    Police believe she was killed in mid- December two years earlier around 2008.

    DANIEL HOLDOM has not been charged over the death of Karlie Pearce-Stevenson’s two-year-old daughter Khandalyce, whose remains were found inside a suitcase near Wynarka South Australia in the state’s Murray Mallee Region in July 2015.

    In a dramatic week, South Australia Police major crime detectives questioned HOLDOM’s wheelchair-bound former partner HAZEL PASSMORE for more than four hours at their city police headquarters on Friday.
    Ms HAZEL PASSMORE ,33, has been interviewed several times by police in the past week over suspicions she could be one of three people who stole Ms Karlie Pearce-Stevenson’s identity after she was murdered in 2008, then aged, 20 years-old.
    Note: A photo of the then young victim Karlie, can be seen in the Sunday Herald Sun – Sunday edition November 1, 2015.
