Brissy cop charged with murder over baby son’s death in 2014-Still not named

Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said the baby’s death was immediately considered suspicious and the officer was suspended ‘about a month after the incident’.

‘The usual procedure we have is when under investigation, before any charges are laid, the officers are suspended on pay,’ Mr Gollschewski told reporters on Saturday.

‘Now that he has been charged that will be reviewed and consideration will be given to suspension without pay.

‘That’s a technical legal matter that has to be considered properly.’

Queensland Police Service pays its senior constables between $68,894 and $82,638 a year.

A 38-year-old Queensland Police senior constable has been charged with murder over the death of his baby son.

Police charged the man after a joint investigation by the child trauma task force within the child safety and sexual crime group, state crime command and the ethical standards command.

The investigation related to the death of a two-month-old boy at a property in Victoria Point on Brisbane’s bay-side on June 28, 2014.

The officer from the Brisbane region, who had already been suspended from duty with the Queensland Police Service, is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.

At a media conference on Saturday afternoon, Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said he could not release too many details about the case other but confirmed “there were fairly significant injuries to the baby”.

He said the officer involved was suspended about a month after the child’s death and defended the decision by investigators not to speak publicly on the officer’s alleged involvement before today.

In terms of any sort of infant homicide, they aren’t necessarily made known to the media.

Detective Superintendent Cheryl Scanlon

“Our community needs to have confidence, in fact great confidence, that no matter who is responsible for these types of crimes, that its police service will be relentless and committed in ensuring that the investigations are brought to conclusion and that the offenders are brought to justice,” he said.

“Now this is a very tragic event, with the loss of a young, innocent life and the devastation of a family.

“I’m a father — these sorts of crimes, irrespective of who commits them, are tragic and terrible.

“I can only say that we are committed, as we have been in this instance, to making sure the offender is brought to justice.

“Particularly in this one, we’ve [been] very careful, hence our involvement with the Crime and Corruption Commission to make sure everything has been done properly.”

Detective Superintendent Cheryl Scanlon said they would have kept the investigation away from public attention regardless of who was involved.

“In terms of any sort of infant homicide, they aren’t necessarily made known to the media,” she said.

“It doesn’t matter whether there’s a police officer charged or a member of the community.

“They are extremely difficult, complex and protracted investigations where you have expert evidence involved and they take many, many months to resolve.”

Deputy Commissioner Gollschewski said the officer was suspended on full pay but now that he had been charged this would be reviewed.


Police officer still paid after baby’s death

Updated: 6:27 pm, Saturday, 30 January 2016

A Queensland police officer accused of murdering his baby son has spent the last year-and-a-half suspended from duty on full pay.

The 38-year-old senior constable was charged with murder on Saturday morning after his two-month-old son succumbed to ‘fairly significant injuries’ at Victoria Point in Brisbane’s east in June 2014.

Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said the baby’s death was immediately considered suspicious and the officer was suspended ‘about a month after the incident’.

‘The usual procedure we have is when under investigation, before any charges are laid, the officers are suspended on pay,’ Mr Gollschewski told reporters on Saturday.

‘Now that he has been charged that will be reviewed and consideration will be given to suspension without pay.

‘That’s a technical legal matter that has to be considered properly.’

Queensland Police Service pays its senior constables between $68,894 and $82,638 a year.

But Mr Gollschewski defended the amount of time the investigation took, saying infant homicides were difficult to investigate because they relied upon medical expert evidence that could take months to obtain and verify.

‘This is a very tragic event with the loss of a young innocent life and the devastation of a family,’ he said.

‘These types of investigations are very difficult, challenging and, in this instance, quite protracted.’

He also defended the decision not to release any information about the incident before now, including the fact an officer was suspended on suspicion of a child’s murder, because detectives needed to maintain ‘the integrity of the investigation’.

The deputy commissioner said the lengthy investigation was aided by the Crime and Corruption Commission and various experts.

‘Our community needs to have confidence, in fact great confidence, that no matter who is responsible for these types of crimes, the police service will be relentless and committed to ensuring the investigations are brought to a conclusion,’ he said.

‘And that the offenders are brought to justice.’

Mr Gollschewski refused to provide any details about the incident itself, saying the matter was now before the courts.

The officer is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.

A Queensland police officer will face court on Monday charged with the murder of his baby son in 2014.

This is a very tragic event with the loss of a young, innocent life and the devastation of a family

Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski

The senior constable’s two-month-old boy died after suffering “significant” injuries at his home at bayside Victoria Point, south-east of Brisbane, on June 28, 2014, Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said on Saturday.

The 38-year-old was stood down on full pay one month after the child’s death, when an investigation was launched.

He was not on duty at the time the boy died.

The Brisbane region senior constable was arrested and charged on Saturday after a protracted probe involving multiple investigatory agencies, including the police Ethical Standards Command and the independent Crime and Corruption Commission.

As the matter is before the courts, Mr Gollschewski declined to elaborate on how the baby boy is alleged to have died but said the injuries that caused his death were severe.

“It’s a complicated one, other than to say there were fairly significant injuries to the baby,” he said.

“This is a very tragic event with the loss of a young, innocent life and the devastation of a family.

“These types of investigations are very difficult and challenging and in this instance quite protracted.”

Mr Gollschewski defended Queensland Police Service not revealing one of their officers had been stood down subject to a murder investigation until he had been charged.

“As with any of these types of investigations, they are very difficult, it’s very important they are conducted in a way that the evidence is preserved and that we are able to present that to a court so a proper determination can be made,” he said.

“Our community needs to have confidence, great confidence, that no matter who is responsible for these types of crime, the police service will be relentless and committed to ensuring investigations are brought to their conclusion and the offenders are brought to justice.”

State Crime Command Detective Superintendent Cheryl Scanlon said all infant murder investigations were lengthy and detailed ones.

“In terms of any infant homicide they are not necessarily made known to members of the media, it doesn’t matter if there is a police officer charged or a member of the community, they are extremely difficult, complex and protracted investigations,” she said.

“Where you have experts involved and they take many, many months to resolve, this particular case is no different to other cases involving infant homicides.”

Mr Gollschewski said the alleged crime was a particularly tragic one.”I’m a father, these sort of crimes, irrespective of who commits them, are tragic and terrible,” he said.

“I can only say that we are committed, as we have been in this instance, to making sure the offender was brought to justice.”

The baby’s father has been remanded in custody to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday, February 1.

  2. Coppers give their own outrageous latitude compared to normal folks (who they are happy to name and shame) They have to be exposed, Joe Blow is given no thought by the cops to losing his or her reputation or potential embarrassment and so on…Looking after their mates is OR SHOULD BE A DEAD AND BURIED ATTITUDE

  3. So anyone else would have been named but a cop and he’s not named , he will get tracked down most crims barring the paedophiles and freak shows hate child killers and pedo’s , but will he go to jail ? depends if he is a jew or freemason .

    Notice the jew names of the two pigs everywhere we look we will see jews {liars} in positions of power ,the old 2% of the population ,but every position of power . cops are still 95% cowards and there is still a Massive and humongous Ritual abuse and paedophiles network being run by our So called Government at the highest levels .

  4. I am NO big fan of Police but this must have been a very tragic accident. That is the most dreadful loss that can happen to a father. This guy is (was) supposed to be a responsible Police officer. I may even have got a ticket from him in traffic in the past. Maybe the investigators have made a terrible mistake ….. or perhaps not ???
    And should the investigators be right (which I find very hard to believe) he will need all the protection he can muster in jail !

  5. Jan..why the hell are you doubting this horrible incident ? Just because hes a cop you think their arses are studded in diamonds for christ sake. There are bad cops amongst the good Ive seen a few in my time. I gate crashed a police party with friends in Nth Melb in the 80s and they are no different to the average drunk at a piss up the women were up themselves especially and complete sluts. Power trippers we raided the fridge plenty of beer then took off, you are even thinking about how he will manage in the corrections facility. What about the baby? Who gives a rats about this maggot.

    1. Because this would be the most cowardice act a father can commit. He could have lost control for some reason but deliberate murder of his own baby seems unbelievable. I certainly have seen BAD cops myself who love their powertrip handing out tickets for the most futile infringements (hence I am not a big fan) where a warning could have done so much good. So I am also sure not many of their arses are studded in diamonds. But this guy might not have been a traffic cop. And being a cop he should certainly not be losing his temper which makes it even more complicated. But ……… if he is found Guilty I won’t feel sorry for him one bit !

  6. Don’t understand this at all. When a baby dies under suspicious circumstances someone is usually arrested very shortly afterwards, particularly as the child had “significant injuries.” Why has so much time elapsed and why if this police officer was stood down 4 weeks after the death ( they must have suspected he was involved ) has it taken this long? Very strange indeed.

  7. He has actually been named: Senior Constable Comin Randall. He was stationed at Wynnum. Initially there was some investigation into if the baby had died from SIDS, however an autopsy showed significant head injuries.

    The child’s mother was not home at the time in question. Apparently she and the father (her husband) had been arguing about his affair with a female police officer and the mother left the house.

    The medical evidence may have taken a long time to organize, verify and get multiple expert opinions on. Being a police officer, they would want it to be air tight and squeaky clean to prevent a mistrial/acquittal I’d guess.

    For genuine police, this man would no longer be called one of their own. They will afford him nothing. If remanded, he will be in protective custody due to bring both a police officer and person charged with offenses against a child – either gets you PC.
