A nasty surprise – Kingston murder

By caf - 3 September 2008 78

[First filed: September 01, 2008 @ 09:21]

A reliable source tells me that the early starters first to arrive at the ABC childcare centre in Kingston found a nasty surprise this morning – a bloodied corpse on the play equipment.

From reports it sounds like the fellow met a violent end.

Nice.

UPDATE: The ABC is reporting that the body was in Telopea Park.

ANOTHER UPDATE: The Police statement on this matter is now online.

FURTHER UPDATE: NineMSN reports that Caf was absolutely on the money and it was the ABC Learning Centre, not Telopea Park. Police are already interviewing a woman he apparently met earlier in the evening at Filthy McFadden’s in Kingston (remind me to cross Filthy’s off my pick-up list).

News Limited are corroborating although intriguingly they’ve decided that Kingston is cool enough to be in Melbourne. Nice one Mellissa Jenkins.

ALSO: The ABC (not to be confused with fast Eddie Groves’ child care pyramid scheme) reports that the victim was in his late-teens/early 20s and was wearing chef’s pants.

MORE: The ABC now reports that the woman has been released without charge and investigations are continuing.

What’s Your opinion?

Are you serious Headbonius?

I would be surprised to find any parent that would be telling their small child about a death at thier childcare centre. Children have very vivid imaginations and a death would be very frigtening. The circle of life conversation, I think would be more approriate when the death directly affects them.

The body would have been found before any children would have arrived. Earliest drop off is 7:45 am. So one can hope that no little ones were exposed to the scene.

I am sure the a majoity of the parents will be sensible and not have frighten the children about a dead body at the daycare.

It was a big thing in the still very small world of this little boy, and the strangeness of the day must also have been disconcerting.

While this is not in the same league as a lost life, I am sure his parent took the opportunity to discuss the situation with him at a level appropriate to his cognitive and emotional development.

Hmmmmm, a little one misses out on show and tell versus a person losing their life. Be honest with your little one PickedaNickname. In language that they understand explain to them about life and dying and how sad it was that someone has died. If they grow up thinking that their activities are the most important thing in the world they will surely be an egotistical, selfish little turd. I missed out on show and tell because some selfish bastard chose to die at my childcare centre – Boo Hoo, Wahh Wahh! Jesus.

Anyway, on a another note, just goes to prove that people, again surprisingly, die at places other than hospitals – eh JB?

headbonius,

got any kiddies?

they are surprisingly selfish about show and tell.

they want to share their news with their little friends, or hear about what their friends did.

I bet that you have a chat with your mates at work first thing.

Now, the fact that there was blood involved at the centre, means that there will need to be some serious decontamination prior to letting any kids back on the equipment.

especially if it was a junkie.

I do hope that their family knows what has happened to them.

seems that the real world is darker each day.

When I went to drop my littlie off I was sent on my way.

The whole playgroud was marked off with lots of police tape. The worker who talked to me looked pretty shaken but didn’t give much details.

I thought it might of been a junkie overdoes till seeing the top bit on this post about the blood.

My child was pretty upset. Today was special news day for him.

Perhaps it was a former ABC Learning exec who had lost a bundle with their share crash who had topped themselves on the premises.

Don’t get me wrong, I fully expect a locality rather then a latitude and longitude, I just though it funny that that locatlity “near the corner of Leichhardt Street and Currie Crescent near Telopea Park” does not actually exist…

Skidbladnir 11:07 am 01 Sep 08

@p1:
Police tend to go with localities so the public don’t have to check development applications for “Block 1, Section 29, Giles St, Kingston”.

Which is fair.

Interestingly, Google Earth doesn’t show Leichhardt Street and Currie Crescent as intersecting at all. Perhaps the body was found in two parts?

Danman 10:21 am 01 Sep 08

from what I hear Telopea Park isn’t a gay beat anymore and hasn’t been for at least five years. I wonder what the motive in this case was . . .

So only homosexual people get murdered ?
News to me.

caf 10:17 am 01 Sep 08

The ABC report actually says near Telopea Park, not in. To be specific, “near the corner of Leichhardt Street and Currie Crescent near Telopea Park” – take a look on Google Maps…

Strange – from what I hear Telopea Park isn’t a gay beat anymore and hasn’t been for at least five years. I wonder what the motive in this case was . . .

ARTistic-U 10:00 am 01 Sep 08

no word of a lie, I use ABC Kingston and am about to head off that way – I hope it was Telopea as stated above

rosie_bubz 9:52 am 01 Sep 08

oh dear how horrible.. my friend lives not far from telopea park.. she had to take a different route to work because of the road blockages

sunshine 9:44 am 01 Sep 08
