Although I was not involved in this part of the forensic, I was involved inthe initial search, which turned up nothing. However, it appears that things are moving forward.
CT article here.
Simple answer: Old people.
They are weird. They remember all sorts of crap that happened years ago, but then again, they could be making it all up wanting a bit of attention…
We already checked every bloody drain in the area, so we probably lifted up all the ones in your street.
However, we found nothing.
Without some evidence or information, the cops wouldn’t be doing this. And it is a very thorough procedure so anything that is found is handled correctly as evidence.
If it helps find his killer then it is all worth it.
Just looking at the media report and something struck me as a bit odd.
“He asked anyone who thought someone might have put something in their garbage bin on the night of Sunday, May 1, or morning of Monday, May 2, to call Crime Stoppers on 1800333000. This was particularly relevant to residents of Kambah, Wanniassa and the Woden suburbs, who had had their bins out ready for collection that night.”
Oh, hang on, I remember someone was messing with my rubbish bin….oh, wait, the more I think about it that was in fact Sunday March 20.
I know these guys are trying to do a job, and nobody can accuse of them of putting this on the back-burner, however what sort of people remember random bin tampering in the dead of night four months down the track?
I think they are grasping at straws.
And yes, f*cking hooray for Friday. It’s been a loooong and sh*tty week.
hahahaa… Thats because you started earlier than me….
gimme a D, gimme a U, gimme a R, gimme a H, gimme another A, gimme a M, what does it spell ? DURHAM
*btw, you let me drink far too much at Maggies Meat Market last night*
About time. Anyway the boys have a quite revolting and difficult job to do, and they’re doing it well.
Actually, I was posting to say that there obviously had been new leads in the case and when I read through it I realised that the SES were’nt mentioned.
Whatever, its FRIDAY!!!
it seems you are in luck though Thumper, in this weeks City Chronicle, in The ‘On The Beat’ column by the chief police officer, She is so kind as to mention the assistance of ‘about 50 SES volunteers’ in the hunt at the tip.
Some recognition at last!
Thumper, alas, your whine is unfounded. The Sunday Crimes had an article (not online) describing the work of “about 50 emergency services volunteers”, quoted a police sergeant praising their efforts above those of AFP staff.
I hope the AFP nail someone for this murder as we seem to have a few unsolved ones sitting on the books lately.
No kidding ssanta….
Anyway, its ongoing and they’re still out there so lets hope it turns up a result.
The SES only get a mention when they are fingered when someone elese buggers up a job.
And as usual there is no mention of the SES volunteers doing the majority of the hard slog.
What should we call Canberra’s newest Light Rail Vehicle?
