Media don't report suicides, as it always results in spates of suicides. So if the media hasn't followed up, it'll be a good guess that it was deemed to be a suicide.

Very strange circumstances for a suicide - missing for 5 days then suddenly turns up in the parklands.....

Can you reiterate what this means ?

That the person who sent the asbestos had this in their mindset. My hypothesis is he is of disturbed mind and only he knows in his mind why he conjured the act of sending asbestos to foreign consulates. Not unless he has mesothelioma?
The fact that Asbestos Julie is Foreign Affairs Minister and her nickname given by political commentators may have been the derivative of his actions.

Its an odd substance to send in the mail to foreign consulates. The fact that he targeted foreign consulates and Asbestos Julie is Foreign Minister lead me to believe maybe he had some delusion that it would bring some desired outcome.

What has been the outcome yet? It certainly made the media.

Has he been subject to psychological assessment?

We need more information about his background.

Rachael Runyan was a blonde American female toddler who was kidnapped in Sunset, Utah in August 1982, and her murdered corpse was found several miles away, three weeks later.
Rachael had not long before been the winner of a child beauty contest and it is the photo of her in a crown and dress as Little Miss Sunset that currently adorns the Wikipedia article about her murder.
Witnesses described the man who enticed Rachael into his car as African American/Black and between 25 and 30 years old.
Rachael's case was featured on a 1989 episode of the television program Unsolved Mysteries.
Three years ago, the park from which she was taken so long ago, was renamed in her honor.
As with JonBenet Ramsey, some have focused on Rachel's child beauty queen status, Not sure why they need to enhance her femininity in that way as her female sex is obvious.
RIP Baby Girl

A case in Florida where a woman is alleged to have been murdered by her Australian husband on board their catamaran has a more unusual narrative than the more relatively common incidents of domestic violence - a seemingly bizarre plot to kill a newlywed wife, make it look like a boating accident, and in the process get arrested for stealing thousands of dollars worth of coins.

Baby Emelia was not even one-year-old when her parents Lewis Bennett - an experienced British-Australian sailor - and Isabella Hellman set off for their honeymoon from Florida.

Emelia stayed with family, who cared for her while her mother and father sailed to the Caribbean in a 37-foot catamaran.

But only her dad came back.


It was Mother's Day in May 2017 and the couple was making their way back to Florida from Cuba.

What initially seemed a mysterious disappearance out at sea, transpired into something more sinister.

Bennett later told authorities he was sleeping below deck while Isabella was keeping watch above.

He says he woke to a thud and thinking the boat had hit something, he went up on deck and his wife was gone.

The yacht appeared to be sinking, so he got onto a life raft and tried to get help. That's what he says.

That's when the FBI and Coast Guard started asking questions. Because coming from an experience boater, this didn't stack up.

Ultimately their investigation found that Bennett was responsible for his wife's death - and that he covered up the crime by deliberately sinking the vessel.

Isabella's body has never been found and we don't know how she died.

Photos of the submerged yacht later revealed both sides of its hull were intentionally damaged and two escape hatches - below the waterline - were left open.

Once the young mother presumably went overboard, Bennett never deployed a flare to light up the dark night sea, he never turned the boat around to look for her.

That's by his own admission in Miami Federal Court documents.

What he did instead was jump onto a life raft with food and water and when the Coast Guard rescued him, they found something else with him: a suitcase full of coins worth tens of thousands of dollars, later revealed to be stolen.

It was that discovery that led to Bennett's initial arrest in August 2017 and at the same time as being sentenced to seven months' jail for the coin loot, he was charged with second degree murder.

Eventually, Bennett pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter. That's what he will be sentenced for at the Miami Federal Court tomorrow.

Isabella Hellman's family desperately want access to Emelia, who was taken to the UK to live with Bennett's family.

Emelia is currently in Scotland with Bennett's sister.

Isabella's family in Florida is also outraged that Bennett can plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter in what they say was a plea deal with prosecutors.

This is something we see a lot of in Australia - charges downgraded or dropped for a guilty plea.

Bennett's motivation for killing Isabella seems to share many common threads with other cases of domestic violence or partner murders in Australia.

He was reportedly in financial troubles. He wanted her estate to fix it.

He wanted to move to Australia and raise Emelia there. Isabella didn't want to.

Catalysts for killing a partner, we've sadly heard before.

Who leaves a one year old baby behind like that to go sailing? Sus from the start IMO.
It might be a bit suss. I think maybe they had an argument over something probably the stolen coin, you have to be careful who you go sailing with.

It's dangerous, can get quite intense at times.

Not sure how long they were away for, might have only been a couple of weeks. Safe with grandparents. She's gorgeous .. and the baby. Go figure. I can't.

Always tragic when a human hurts or kills another.
Agreed

Not sure why you are bringing this up with a focus on evil fathers. Sounds like your a feminist with an agenda.
Based on?


Mothers Day she disappeared , so mentioning the 1 yr old is appropriate. Most MSM outlets utilise any angle to get people to click. Oh and can you highlight the part about evil fathers?

Need to lock this guy up and throw the key away.

Convicted pedophile Bradley Pen Dragon has been sentenced to more than four years in jail for accessing child pornography online just two days after his prison release for a separate violent crime in Perth.

The 58-year-old infamously spent 13 years in a Thai jail for sexually abusing children and has been repeatedly convicted in Western Australia for child exploitation offences.

In lockdown and the trains have been stopped.

Police have shot a man reportedly carrying a bomb at Brisbane International Airport.

Various reports the man in a white shirt suddenly launched at several women with a knife and chased them through the terminal before threatening to blow everybody up after producing a metal box with exposed wires.

No confirmation what he was carrying was an explosive device or an old cash box he glued some wires on but is testament to the chaos one person can cause.

Not sure what the whole story is yet but I'm thinking about how much money DV related incidents are costing us and wonder if we're going about tackling it the wrong way. If some might not be so defensive talking about it if we approached it as a fiscal matter.

Nobody likes losing money.

I shortened it actually and while the message is exactly the same, regret that now. Particularly considering the baby features in another looming court battle over custody arrangements. What's the agenda?
My agenda is simple , I am sick and tired of this man bashing campaign by the media and our politicians. We are aware that there are sick people out there that harms others. It is gender discrimination to single out men, you are just a puppet in the system helping spread feminist cancer. Why don’t you talk about the drastic increase in the suicide rate amongst divorced men getting screwed over by crazy spiteful woman and politicians.i come onto a football forum I don’t want this in my face

Men are responsible for most serious violent crime, it isn't gender discrimination or proof of a feminist agenda to generate public interest threads on a crime board that might happen to bring attention to that.

It is what it is.

While high suicide rates among divorced men is a very real issue imo it isn't a crime so to introduce a discussion here on this thread and elsewhere across this board isn't appropriate.

Why don’t you talk about the % of mothers that kill children as opposed to % fathers . Is that real enough for you? I could create some threads on this if you like? Or does this not suit your feminist agenda ?
