Gruesome murder grips Tasmania as cops search for more body parts
A YOUNG couple has faced court charged with the alleged murder of a man whose torso was found in bushland days after he vanished.

A COUPLE charged over the gruesome murder of a young man whose torso was found in Tasmanian bushland at the weekend have faced a court packed with friends and family of the victim.

Jack Harrison Vincent Sadler, 26, did not enter a plea on a charge of murder relating to the death of 24-year-old Jake Daniel Anderson-Brettner at Launceston Magistrate’s Court today.

Dressed in black pants and a black T-shirt, Mr Sadler did not speak during the brief court appearance and was remanded in custody to reappear on September 11.

Jake Anderson-Brettner and long-term girlfriend Katlyn Roney got engaged in March this year.

In a separate appearance, Gemma Elizabeth Clark, 25, pleaded not guilty to a charge of being an accessory after the fact of murder.

Ms Clark made no application for bail and was ordered to reappear in the Supreme Court of Tasmania on October 15. Both hail from the Launceston suburb of Riverside.

The hearings were attended by more than a dozen of Mr Anderson-Brettner’s friends along with Tasmania Police Commander Brett Smith and lead investigator Detective Acting Inspector Craig Fox, according to The Mercury.

Police have warned more body parts belonging to Mr Anderson-Brettner, including his head, may have been dumped in wheelie bins across Launceston.

Lisa Cunningham, 43, who grew up in Adelaide was taken into custody in Phoenix on Wednesday last week, after prosecutors told the court they had assembled enough evidence to seek her execution.

Prosecutors have framed the case against Mrs Cunningham, a suburban housewife whose husband is a former police detective in Phoenix, as one in which she acted as an evil stepmother towards her stepdaughter, Sanaa: torturing the little girl for poor behaviour by keeping her zip-tied to a large water container in the garage; forcing her to sleep on the patio or in the laundry; keeping her restrained for hours in a special shirt with extra-long sleeves, similar to those once found in mental hospitals; and failing to treat a serious wound on her foot that later turned septic.

Mrs Cunningham and her husband, Germayne, also charged with first-degree murder, vehemently deny the charges. They say they were doing all in their power to assist Sanaa, whose mental health problems, including schizophrenia, caused her to injure herself and lash out at others.

Mrs Cunningham is believed to be the only Australian woman to face the possibility of the death penalty in the US and the first Australian since Californian authorities hanged an Australian gunslinger during the 1850s goldrush.

How can you protect your kids against this? What an appalling failure.

A ten-year-old boy who suffered critical injuries after being assaulted at a school in Sydney’s west will undergo a full medical examination today.

The boy was fighting for life when he was rushed to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead after an incident at Wattawa Heights Public School in Bankstown just after midday yesterday.

He remains in a critical but stable condition.

A spokeswoman for NSW Police confirmed an investigation has been launched and that doctors are trying to determine if the boy had a pre-existing medical condition.


A child cannot be charged with a criminal offence in Australia if they are under the age of 10.

Do we think this may be related PD? Or know who the man is assisting?
No idea. I don't recall anything in the media about missing people down that way in the last week. Maybe it's a recent event, but just as likely historical. It's near where Ian Collet was found, it's also a few kms from where Kerry Turner was found.I note that the Canning Dam road exits onto Albany Highway nearby. It's the sort of area where I could imagine Sarah Spiers being hidden for decades.

I noticed the red dirt, looks like scoria and the same as where Kerry Turner was found. Young 14yo girl went missing about a week ago, Halle Williams from Safety Bay but there'd been some friction at home, I hope its not her.

Drone footage here is very good, they definitely have something.

It's Julie Ann Cooper I think.

Julie Anne Cooper had not been heard from since August 17, when police said she told family she would be out of contact for about two weeks.

It is understood the homicide squad took over the inquiry into Ms Cooper’s disappearance about a week ago.

Police do not think she vanished of her own accord and suspect she met with foul play

Was hoping it wasn't her.
Bad outcome. This will distress another family.
A bit of a hike from Doubleview. I wonder what the connection is to Ashendon, if any?

This one is a bit 'there but for the grace of god' for me. I know the mother of this bloke a bit casually. She's a loving and I'm sure decent mum who's son just happened to be very disturbed and sometimes mentally ill. As the court has found he understood what he did and could have made different choices. I do feel for his family as victims as well.
OH turn it up- what a load of bollocks. This weasel has attacked and killed a defenceless ,innocent young woman on the street for a thrill kill and in anger at his own inadequacies in life. Rather than accept responsibility for his own pathetic actions he is trying for lesser sentence/soft billet in the nut farm with this cock and bull story about demons and Razzy or Jazzy .
The coppers ,psychiatrists and gaolers are seeing so many variations of this with these pathetic weasels these days they have trouble keeping a straight face when transcribing it.
I do feel angry his family didn't hit the weasel on the head at birth and spare this innocent girl a grisly horrific death,and HER family a lifetime of unimaginable grief.
Return the death penalty .

Coupled with the car getting sold and the above picture I could make some unflattering guesses as to the motivation
Shocking picture. I imagine the press pulled it from facebook but whoever posted it wasn't doing her any favours.

'Friends' don't post unflattering pics of their 'friends'.

The picture is from the one distributed by WA Police when Julie Cooper was posted as a missing person back in the beginning of September.

Surprising how " Snazzy " or " Razzy" or whoever else is giving the orders inside these weasels heads never instructs them to mow the old lady on the corner blocks lawn for free, volunteer to pick up litter on the road verge,or help out at the local RSPCA on weekends.
Or maybe they do-but strangely the weasels find the will to overcome those impulses every time.
But saying "no" when old " Jazzy " suggests running down a mother wheeling a baby in a pram, or bashing a defenceless girl to death on the street....must obey "orders".....
Load of Rot.

Forty seven year old Charlie Brandt murdered his wife and her niece before hanging himself. What most of his friends and family didn’t know at the time was that he'd killed before when he was thirteen years old.

He shot his pregnant mother while she was in the bath and his father who was at the basin. He attempted to shoot his sister Angela - who escaped. His mother died. Brandt was placed in a psychiatric facility, uncharged and was released one year later. Doctors couldn't find anything wrong with him. He and his family moved out of the state where no one knew about Charlie's murderous past.

Charlie Brandt



Carl "Charlie" Brandt (February 23, 1957 – September 13, 2004) was an American serial killer. A former resident of Fort Wayne, Indiana and longtime resident of the Florida Keys, Brandt committed suicide in September 2004 after he stabbed his wife, Teresa "Teri" Brandt, and decapitated and severely mutilated his niece, Michelle Jones, by removing her heart. An investigation by police concluded that Brandt hanged himself in Jones' garage after committing the murders.

It later came to light that Brandt had shot his parents – his pregnant mother fatally – in 1971, when he was 13; he spent one year at a psychiatric hospital before being released, and was never criminally charged. Because of this incident, and because of Brandt's efficiency in killing his wife and niece and his hidden obsession with human anatomy, investigators looked into the prospect that he had committed other murders since moving to Florida in 1973.

Police have positively ascribed up to six homicides to Brandt.

A NEW mum found dead inside her home with her young baby had complained to police about a stalker named “The Reaper”. Wollongong.

A WOMAN who was killed inside her home had complained about a stalker who called himself the “reaper”, called her up to 100 times a day and left messages telling her to die.

A spokeswoman for NSW Police said a visitor discovered Kristie Powell dead inside her bedroom early this morning after suffering extensive injuries from a sharp object to the head and upper body. Police have now confirmed they are treating the death as a homicide.

A five-month-old baby boy was also discovered physically unharmed inside the home.

In chilling Facebook messages on Ms Powell’s Facebook page — in the months leading up to the grim discovery at her Wollongong home overnight — the 39-year-old said she stopped answering private phone calls because she had a stalker.

Kristie had a stalker she'd posted about over facebook prior to her death, called himself "The Reaper". Police say they have no record of Kristie making a complaint about the alleged stalking.

Disturbing Facebook posts reveal the mother found dead near her infant son in their NSW home had allegedly been stalked by a person she knew.

Kristie Powell’s body was found at her Bellambi property, north of Wollongong, by a friend about 1.10am.

"She's a 39-year-old lady, she lives alone there with a five-month-old son. The little boy was in the bedroom. He was uninjured and unharmed."

Ms Powell, who worked from home as a dog sitter, revealed in a Facebook reply to a friend in March she had concerns about a person.

“He became obsessed with me and for some reason he is still obsessed,” the 39-year-old wrote.

“He is mentally unwell and I have contacted police about him on a few occasions, but there is nothing they can really do as he is considered non-threatening.”

In the Facebook message, Ms Powell said the man wrote her messages, sometimes up to 100 a day, that say “Die Kristie Die”.

She claims he also referred to himself as the “Reaper”
