KERRY Turner was going to come home for dinner that Saturday night but changed her plans at the last minute go clubbing with her best mate Kylie.

On that June 30 night in 1991, the teenagers ended up at Perth CBD nightspot Pinocchio’s
(Magnet House on Murray St) but were separated once inside.

Kerry, 18, didn’t have enough money to take a taxi all the way home to Bickley so the cabbie dropped her outside an all-night cafe in East Victoria Park. (
Miller rd and Shepperton hwy)

Police hunted for the vehicle, described by witnesses as a dark blue car, similar to a Datsun 260C, which had spoked wheels, but came up empty-handed.

Six years earlier their son Jamie, 18, died after being injected with drugs by a man who was later convicted of his manslaughter.

Another crime with convictions revolving around the crime.


The West Australian June 18th, 1988, page 1. By Steve Lague. New Southside murder hunt.

  • Police find partially clothed body of Vanessa Roberta Devlin 23 years old.
  • Certain similarities to other attacks by south side rapist.
  • Found on floor of a sleepout at the rear of an Albany Highway house. House is 100m from highway and no close by neighbours with a railway line running alongside.

  • Suspect is mid 20’s 175 cm tall medium build, dark curly hair and brown eyes.
  • Police unwilling to say just one man was responsible. Maybe shift worker.

Kerry was just 18 on June 29, 1991, when she went for a night out with a girlfriend to Pinocchio’s nightclub on Murray Street, but she never made it home.
Her body was found a month later near Canning Dam.
Kerry’s father John Turner said he and his wife Sue were confident advancements in technology and cold-case investigation would see justice done eventually.

http://www.communitynews.com.au/gua...der-police-family-not-giving-catching-killer/
“Then she called me back a couple of hours later to say they’d changed the arrangements and that her and her friend were going into the city, to the nightclub.”
Kerry had become separated from her friend soon after entering Pinocchio’s, and had spent the evening mingling before leaving on her own about 4am.

That friend, Kylie Gilchrist, has been haunted ever since.

38km Canning Dam @40 minutes

3 dead in the family? Surely this is a mistake?

"7/10/1993 Alex Turner brother of Kerry Turner (missing 23/6/1991) murdered in homophobic attack."

Mark Dixie uses the pseudonym Shane Turner

She was eventually picked up by another taxi which dropped her off about 5:00am on Shepperton Road, opposite what is now Conca's Italian Restaurant. (Miller road) 24 hours at the time.

Soon afterwards, a vehicle described by witnesses as similar to a dark-coloured or blue Datsun sedan pulled up next to Ms Turner. Another witness described the vehicle as a fawn-coloured sedan with spoked wheels.

Kerry was seen entering the car on the passenger side, and it continued south on Shepperton Road.

"Investigators suspect there are still people who know what happened to Ms Turner, and believe someone who may have felt intimidated or uncomfortable coming forward in the 1990s may now be in a position to do so."

Same with Gerard Ross.

The Firm, Gobbles, Pinocchios, F. Scotts, Limbos, Freezer, the Underground and Tarantellas would not register to anyone born before dial-up internet, Mark Zuckerberg and smart phones, but for a generation or two of revellers these clubs were a precious respite from the bland, mundane ordinariness of our everyday working lives.

Remarkably three nightclubs have survived: The Hip-E Club, Connections and Club Bayview

It was one of the few leads they had into Kerry's disappearance.

"It's just mystifying that she would be so positively walking around the back of the car and getting in [unless she knew the person]," Mr Turner said.

"It's very awful, we think about it every single day, there's never a day that goes by that a thought about Kerry doesn't come into my mind."

"We remain hopeful and we know that there are people that know something."

The Perth Hills again...

Woman slain Wed 2 Jan 1980

PERTH: Miss Kerryn Mary Tate, 22, of Mount Lawley, had been beaten to death then burnt on a bonfire near the outer suburb of Karragullen at the weekend, police said yesterday. Her killer had not been found.
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/137005936?searchTerm="Kerryn Tate"&searchLimits=

Wonder which coven she was with?

Where it is now based?

Have to drag out the book “Other Temples, Other Gods” again.

They had a list.

Has anyone been interviewed regarding this and other similar murders recently?

Just reading Rossmo geographic profiling again.

Evil falls suddenly.

16 attacks in 2 years. What will come of that.

From memory Masters might be part of these. Clark was one.

Clarkes murder was close to Sheppardton road Vic Park.

1988 Kimono family had horse floats from memory.

"South side rapist may be responsible for more than 16 attacks on women in the past 2 years. They include the murder of Victoria Clark aged 30."

Might be more conducive to discussion if you would post some information about what you are referring to.

BlueE - it turns out the prison library actually has a second copy of OTOG.

All the WA locations are listed here SmartAlec the sorcerers apprentice - why don't you let us know which ones you are referring to ;)

  • Bookshop in Subiaco
  • Bookshop in Perth CBD
  • Publication with PO box in Claremont
  • Organization in Victoria Park
  • Organization in Mahogany Creek (near Mundaring)
  • Organization on Stirling St Highgate
  • Organization in Balingup
  • The Perth group/coven Peter Barwick talks about in the book (in the extract posted in Shirley Finn thread)
