This isn’t on ABC Online, but there are unconfirmed reports of gunshots being heard on Friday night or Saturday morning. Police must have known there was a shooting or something because they were actively looking for a body on Saturday morning in the river.

Doesn’t look like they’re saying that it was suspicious at this stage though…maybe they have a suspect in mind.

Just on WIN news – a fight in a nearby pub and blood all over the footbridge triggered the body hunt.

Yeah, and I suppose no bodies have ever been found in Lake Burley Griffin? I can’t STAND people like you who constantly put Queanbeyan down.

The rest of Australia puts Canberra down. Canberra puts Queanbeyan down. Queanbeyan puts… I dunno, Bungendore down?

Useless issue to not STAND people over.

Be a little bit diplomatic heinous! It could easily be a friend or relative of mine or even yourself as I assume you travel over the border sometimes.
My wife and I often walk across that bridge whilst going to count the roos on the golf course.
Surprised the media took so long to become aware.

Cameron, I can’t STAND people who tell me what I can and cannot STAND.

Adza – what worries me is the people catching cod at the exact same spot the tobacconist lady went missing all those years ago … Mrs P … a … v … i … ???

BTW, I saw WIN news tonight – Jessica NotSoGood reads the news as if she’s reciting her mothers best pudding recipe.

Which is fortunate, as I didn’t do that (thought that I’d care if you couldn’t stand me). I simply pointed out that it is a useless thing to care about. Any self respecting QBN resident quite rightly doesn’t give two sh*ts about what any Canberra Resident thinks about their town.

If there was a similar thread here about a body turning up anywhere in Canberra, there would be similar comments. Picture: Body found in Lake Tuggeranong. Enter all the Tuggers bashers. Same if it is any lake in Canberra.

Quick correction: “thought that I’d care” should read “not that I’d care”.

Funnily enough there were plenty of bodies in 1974 and they all originated in QBN

Plenty have been found in LBG – after all, it’s only a short drive from Queanbeyan…

It is not a well known fact that Australia practised geographic Apartheid by denying residents of Queanbeyan the right to work in Canberra. This was because Canberra sucked sooo much that they feared that everyone would live in Queanbeyan and commute and therefore stunt the development of Canberra.

They also had to bribe people with very low interest loans (2%) to buy houses in Canberra.

This had a very deteriment impact on Queanbeyan both socially and economically.

Having lived not too far from the site of the search its totally not uncommon to hear what sounds like gunshots at night, followed by squawking birds. I’d say at least once a fortnight on average really, so little wonder no one noticed.

Believe the police are door knocking tonight – bit of a mystery it seems.

This had a very deterimental impact on Queanbeyan’s development both socially and economically. Like most things public servant had a vested interest in keeping these arrangements in place well after they were necessary. Then Canberra stole there water and sold it back, put the flight path over perfectly good land, made the road links suck and congest the Kings Hwy.

And then call it struggle town………

Just imagine if QBN had it’s own TV channel with it’s own news reader. While CBR has Jessica Goody Two Shoes, QBN would have some derro homeless woman wearing second hand cloths which she picked up from the local Vinnies shop. She would be continually sniffing and rubbing her nose from excessive crack usage.

Unconfirmed reprts suggest a Japanese zero was shot down early Saturday morning.

The funny thing is I have more money than anyone I know who lives in the ACT, mainly because I don’t pay stupid rent prices and didn’t pay $600k for a 2 bedroom apartment in the Ghetto (belco).

My taxes are lower, my rego is cheaper and I can modify my car more.

Plus the people in QBN don’t have their heads stuck in their asses, andd can have a conversation with telling people how good they are. We have more freindly and approachable people than anywhere in the ACT. I didn’t realise that until I started to work out here rather than in the ACT. Now most my problem customers come over from the ACT for Thursday late night shopping and think that their poop don’t smell, cause they live in Canberra.

Oh oh CanberraResident, look at what skaboy12 went and did. Can you stand people who put down Canberra?

Cameron, did you say something or was that the sound of a mosquito farting? You’ve gone a little overboard with your defensive stance on my comment above; just how many times do you need to have a go at me because I expressed an opinion which you didn’t agree with. LET it gooooo! Enough already!

skaboy12 my little champion – I agree. Queanbeyan rocks. When I manage to sell my palace here in the ACT, I’m gonna buy one of those mansions on the hill at the back of Karabar, or perhaps out near Wickerslack Lane? Or the back of the Queanbeyan golf course – BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! Some Canberra people are so ill-informed.

I kept going because you didn’t defend your position, and still haven’t. Perhaps you can’t. I can’t stand people who make a rubbish statement that they can’t backup and then resort to stupidity to try and dismiss that which exposed said rubbish statement. I can, however, stand it when such people move out of a city that is superior in every way to the one they intend to move to.

Either that or I was baiting you. Boredom does that.

I prefer Captains flat myself as the water tastes good and the mine is pleasing to the eye.

Yes, and Australia’s pretentious, self absorbed and chronic under-achievers have somewhere to live. CANBERRA.
