Thank you once again BlueE. Sorry but there's no 'appreciate the support' emogi & 'love' is better than 'like'. Glad someone has some empathy for our situation though, and understands some of the back story. I don't wish to be interrogated by the haters or be forced into argument to defend myself and the other witnesses. Out of those 4 witnesses, only my brother Andrew was a victim of TM's. His recent prosecution included another male victim whom my brother didn't know. They were different ages... abused over different time-lines...They'd never met before. I was in Court for the 'Victim Impact Statements' and I will obviously know more than Mr. sprockets. TM had been previously jailed in early 90's for abuse, as a Scout Master, and he's not been set up, railroaded or wrongfully accused. He pleaded guilty and compensated both victims. My understanding is that the 'new witness has made abuse claims against an Uncle, not TM. Rachel is neither an abuse victim of TM's, nor is she a witness for the Beaumont children. She's from our father's second marriage. She wasn't born till 1973, so not included at all. TM never hurt me either and I was very fond of him as a child. In fact once I tracked TM's home address down 40 years later, I wrote to him 6/10/06 and asked him to come forward with us as joint witnesses to that days events. At the time I wrote, I had no idea he was a paedophile or had hurt anyone. I just thought he'd been dragged into something terrible by my father and the older men present that day. Rather than come forward with Andrew and I as a witness, TM tidied up his business affairs and shot through to Siem Reap instead. Cambodian locals and their Media journalists helped us alert the Orphanages etc.. It's a long story, but it took years and a lot of effort to get him back to Australia to eventually face charges. As a side note, you'll see I've hit 100 comments, however I've really only begun to comment on the SM site and here recently. Prior to this, in 2016, I was invited into a private chat site by a 'Big Footy' member and Admin. My communications were hidden so I'd be protected from any over curious or hostile contributors.. I'm now seeing why! Just so you know also... Our father Max owned a white Zephyr and it's this model car that came back with the 3 children in the boot (around 4pm.). TM drove a yellow station wagon (we've photos). The black car you've mentioned came to collect Max in the morning to take him to Glenelg beach, leaving Andrew, my sister Clare and me behind (after he got a phone call around mid-morning). TM had left earlier in his yellow station wagon with 2 other lads to dive for coins off the jetty (our neighbour and TM's cousin, both male teenagers). Neither Andrew or I saw the blonde lad or the sports car the Vietnam Vet's witnessed, as we weren't at Glenelg beach. We don't know the Vietnam Vet or this 'new witness' either. I'd think S.A.POL would have double checked for any collusion. We're also children and innocent of any wrong doing.No, wrong again. The Vietnam Vet's statement matches the elderly woman's (part of a couple) statement that the children were with a young blonde man. This woman was the last to see them on the beach and he talked to this couple Looking for this blonde man was also headlines in the paper. Check!
There were other statements one from another elderly women by herself and a young woman with children who recognised the Beaumont children playing with a middle aged brown haired man. This also made headlines and this was earlier before they went to the bakery. The description of the bathers, long pants and no shirt and the physical description matches Max McIntyre, but the last person seen with the children before leaving the beach matched Munro.
The news papers for years reported the children had gone missing from the races on Colley Reserve held on the Saturday 29th Jan and not on Wednesday from a different location. All of this information is available on the thread mostly in the archived notes
The Viet Vet thought Jane was around 11 years old because of her maturity (not 9) when talking to him and the original photos distributed were a couple of years old when Jane was 5 and didn't look like the girl that he spoke to. This combined with him leaving for army training the day after he saw them where there was no news and then going to Vietnam can explain why it took him years to realise, and not until he'd seen the second up to date photo of the children that he realised that he saw them leaving the beach.
His detailed description of the car they left in could be critical in exposing who else was involved, besides Munro and Max McIntyre. That is if the cops really want this to be exposed.
Fair enough if you want a discussion but you constantly attack witnesses including Andrew McIntyre who has only been a truthful and compelling witness helping to convict pedophile Tony Monro, even though SA police refused to arrest Tony for 10 years until they were shamed into doing it by an outside authority that listened to Andrews statements.
The independent witnesses that place Tony Monro with the Beaumont children leaving the beach, at the house they were allegedly abused and murdered at and later at the McIntyre house are the Viet Vet, boy whose testimony was confirmed by the woman's aux police aux and the 2 McIntyre children.
Yet you are inflaming this situation with one of these witnesses by somehow suggesting this statement was made by them to somehow settle a score with Tony Munro? Unbelievable. He is a convicted pedophile serving a prison term. No one has a score to settle with him because he is guilty and convicted.
There is no logical reason you could suggest that witnesses independently of each other are picking on poor Tony Monro and personally attack one of them with this post unless you are somehow related to him or to his mates in SA police that refused to take his victims child abuse statements for 10 years!
