ACT Policing’s homicide team are focusing their investigations in the Andrew Carville murder case on two ACT resident suspects, a man and a woman, one of whom was Mr Carville’s housemate in Evatt.
Mr Carville (pictured) was last seen alive at his Evatt home at 9.30pm on 4 November 2015. His body was located in Majura on 19 November 2015. Family members were quickly ruled out as persons of interest in the case.
Police have today released a video re-enactment of an incident on Kuringa Drive in Fraser at 11.15pm on the night of November 4 last year and are seeking information from the public about the scene depicted.
“In particular, we are calling for witnesses travelling on Kuringa Drive in Fraser on Wednesday, 4 November 2015, between 10.45pm and 11.15pm who may have seen a 2015 orange coloured Holden Colorado utility and a 1986 cream coloured Toyota Landcruiser parked on this road,” said Detective Sergeant Parsons.
“Information received indicates that there was a vehicle travelling along Kuringa Drive during this timeframe that needed to swerve around these two vehicles to avoid a collision. We are appealing for the driver of that vehicle, as well as any other person who may have seen these two vehicles on Kuringa Drive to contact Crime Stoppers”.
Detective Sergeant Parsons said the Landcruiser was related to Mr Carville’s housemate who was moving out of the house they shared in early November.
It was found dumped at Molonglo Gorge in mid-November last year and had been seen at Mr Carville’s residence shortly before his disappearance. The owner of the ute was subject to a number of forensic procedures at that time.
“The owner of that vehicle is now a suspect in relation to this investigation,” Detective Sergeant Parsons said.
“The owner of the Landcruiser and the housemate are both suspects … The ute is related to the housemate but the housemate is not the owner of either vehicle.”
Police have interviewed the male and female suspects.
“They’ve obviously not given any indication as to their complete involvement at this stage,” Detective Sergeant Parsons said.
She said police wouldn’t be releasing information about the cause of death at this time.
“It’s a key element in our investigation,” she said.
The response to earlier calls for assistance from the public had provided more than 40 pieces of information.
“We’ve been following up on all of those but we would reiterate our request for anyone who may have footage that may assist us to contact Crime Stoppers,” Detective Sergeant Parsons said.
