Just caught on a WIN news update the sad news that the body of a man was found in Kambah this morning.

Has anyone heard anything else about this?

Matty Lewis was his name, according to word of mouth, he was a 29 year old kambah resident.

RIP my fellow Kambadian

apparently he was a very talented backyard mechanic. owned a rx7 worth fearing. i also noticed a 1970’s ferrari in his front yard at one stage. i didnt know him personally tho. a good mate of mine lived in his street

I’ve been away for 3 weeks. And thanks – I’m feeling pretty playful. Of course, some may say “obnoxious”, but I prefer playful.

hey dusty, I don’t remember 2CC – but I certainly remember updates and warnings on ABC 666. Now enough radio station banter.

LG – you’re obviously getting into the Christmas spirit at the moment – can’t remember the last time you were so playful. Good for you.

And credit to you for admitting you have your own trannie. Is it a he-she, or a she-he?

Good for you. God bless our diverse nation.

Anyway, admittedly even tho 2CC is a crappy radio station that U rarely tune in to,it was the ONLY canberra radio station that broadcast bushfire warnings and updates during the day of January 18 2003. It beat 2CN etc by hours.I know as I was sitting by my little ‘trannie’ all day. Credit where credit’s due

wholey shit..i know people who live near kambah oval.
wait a sec..shit, thank god it’s the school holidays at the moment. (before you ask, i know heaps of kids who walk through that oval to get to school..and well, go figure) (kambah pride!)

Bonfire: You actually made me laugh. Well done.

You have some serious issues and aggression pent up there Maelinar. Maybe a psychologist can assist you to deal with them?

Kudos to Sam to citing his source.

SGS – i think you are doing the right thing by citing your source.

If you do go on a date with lurkergal, remember to spray urine on yourself first. she prefers that to aftershave.

Bahaha! Nice one Mael.

Not far from my house. I wonder if I can expect a call from the AFP in two or three months asking if I heard or saw anything suspicous on the night of December 18 between 9:00pm and midnight….

Mael, you’re right, when I say “heard on the radio” it usually does mean I heard it on that station. I just find it funny that nobody gets annoyed at me when I cite the ABC or anyone else for that matter. The reason I often say “heard on the radio” is to try and avoid people changing the subject into an anti-particular radio station rant. Sometimes, when I think it is the right thing to do (especially when repeating the majority of a news report) I will cite my source(s). If you have a problem with that, then don’t read my comments.

Mael, I like you, I think you’re a pretty decent person, but surely you have better things to do with your time than complain about people citing sources.

Don’t be homophobic Lurker…it could be a boyfriend!

“anything suspicious around the nearby Burns Club”….there’s always something suspicious around that club!

For Christ’s sake Sam. Get a frigging girlfriend.

Love your work Mael. Love your work.

Wh2CCat argumen2CC woul2CC th2CCt be ?

Can2CC you men2CCtion 2CC any more of2CCten ?

Unfortunately for us the everybody else who reads this website, your persistance at plugging 2CC at every opportunity is a bit onerous. I’d hazard to say if you mentioned “I heard on the radio”, we’d all be safe to assume that you meant 2CC.

Not that I have a thing with you mentioning 2CC at every opportunity, I personally like to take the piss out of a certain pig who’s snout is in a public house at every opportunity I get.

I merely observed that the information was already out there, it wasn’t necessary to know from whom (without being a brown noser).

Thanks for the info Sam.

Samuel Gordon-Stewart4:05 pm 19 Dec 05

Alrighty then, the information to hand is that somebody walking a dog found the body on Kambah oval at around 6am (che wins an unknown prize!). The man is described as being in his early 20’s and has suffered “injuries”, police won’t say if they contributed to his death. Police are urging anyone who saw anything suspicious around the nearby Burns Club (for some reason) to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or your local police station.

This is my summary of information heard during a 2CC news report and may not be a perfect version of events.

Mael, I’m not willing to have that argument again, I reserve the right to cite my sources.

I’m happy not to hear the 2CC report Sam.

I bet it was someone walking their dog who found him

Samuel Gordon-Stewart3:20 pm 19 Dec 05

All I remember of the 2CC report is that the body was found at 6am. When they run the story again I’ll update you.

Yes….it’s a dead body!
