His DNA will be on file then
Absolutely. Police had this to say about him in 2007.
Lacco is a career criminal with convictions for rape, aggravated indecent assault, grievous bodily harm and breaking and entering. "Lacco has a shocking criminal record and police believe the risk of him re-offending is high,'' Mr O'Callaghan said at the time. A WA detective who has dealt with Lacco several times in the past 15 years described him as a "very nasty piece of work''. "He's one of WA's worst criminals and his record shows that,'' he said.

Maybe whacked over the head or strangled and dragged across the carpark backwards with arms under armpits?

And then she might put in the boot where they found significant amount of her blood. Those boots are distinctive.

An internal police review was ordered in 2015. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-11/commissioner-orders-rayney-cold-case-review/6459330
Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan said the review of Ms Rayney's murder would be headed by Assistant Commissioner Gary Budge, who would lead a team of six to eight hand-picked specialists, with some specialists brought in from overseas.

"We're open to looking at all matters before us and all suggestions that have been put before us and all matters emerging from the trial."

"He will assemble a team of independent investigators and some local investigators as well, so I expect him to bring in some people from the eastern states and independent forensic experts," Mr O'Callaghan said.

"I think firstly they will have a look at the material that they have and give us an idea of how long it might take, so that process will take about two to three weeks and then we will be clear on how long the whole investigation will take.
...

Mr Rayney's lawyer, David Edwardson QC, rejected claims the review would be independent and told 720 ABC Perth he was not filled with confidence about the commissioner's reassurances.

He questioned how it could be independent because it would be headed by an assistant police commissioner.

"The investigation is flawed from beginning to end, and the comments made by the judge about some of the investigators is extraordinary," he said.

"So how could anyone have confidence in a truly cold-case review unless it is in fact independent?

If I understand correctly the review has been finished and in the hands of the Coroner, where it's been for up to two years. No word on what the review found and no word whether there will be a Coronal Inquiry?

A good start would be to test all the DNA evidence they found in her car and at the grave site. A hanky with two unknown female DNA and one unknown male from a grave they didn't think would be found would be very important I'd say.

I think too big a deal was made out of whether the boots were knee high or calf high. If witnessed as black cowboy boots with white trims should have been enough to confirm it was Corryn imo.

If Corryn wasn't the victim of a random stranger crime, imo she may have been having an affair with someone high up in a work environment. Whatever arrangements they made to meet were done in person, at work. No emails or text or she had a throwaway phone that was disappeared. S/he may have been married and jilted her or they got caught. If she'd threatened Lloyd with exposure and wrecking his career, who's to say Corryn wasn't up for threatening her lover?

Just a theory. OESpy might have a better one. :p

I must admit, I was disheartened to realise that so many police officers have access to and participate in the actual forensic process in regard to bodies. Call me cynical, but I dont believe anyone should be able to access a body between the time a crime scene has been sealed which should prevent all access temporarily except by the person that sealed it, the body has been taken by a coroner and the pathologists have finished a post mortem.
That way there'd be no reason for any contamination issues or DNA profiles having to be excluded from testing besides maybe 5 people max.
There'd be no issues with planted evidence like there were in this case

I pondered this with the boot being a mess. It looked like they had pulled everything out the boot, put it in the back the car for at least some the trip then put Corryn in the boot. Then visa vera later.

I just can't see how Corryn might wreck Rayneys career. I didnt know gambling was a crime?

When you earn $600k plus pa, lose $110k over a few years and all the bills are paid, is it even a 'gambling problem'?
Hardly. It did appear both sides had extra marital affairs. Unless Mr Rayney had all his assets in Corryns name, it would have been better to split sooner rather than later.

I wonder if the criminals police had interviewed regarding Rayney had business dealings with Morey?

All this talk of sea containers, concrete and Bassendean.

Same way the cops did but on a much smaller scale. Perception. Reputation.

Not in my opinion. Non issue. Everyone knew he gambled and always had, it was no secret. I doubt it was a real issue for them either, even if they fought about it & I think that goes for most of the other things mentioned in their emails too.
I'd even have a wager she had no intention of kicking him out of the house or following through on anything else she threatened him with, not then anyway. I dont doubt they'd have separated eventually but at that time, it looked more to do with power than anything else to me, on both sides.

September 2018 @70 years of age?

In September 2005, career criminal Donald Victor Morey was convicted after trial of attempted murder. In handing down a 13-year jail term,

So what drugs was he selling at Bentley Community Centre carpark in years past? Only 300 metres from where Dorothy was dumped on Centenary Avenue in 1988.

The report noted Lacco began using heroin at the age of 18 and started taking amphetamines soon after.

Just a laymans thoughts . If you think of the car going forward then the damage fits

From the sump the obstruction then hits the ? catalytic ? denting it then continues in a line over the lower pipe section then along to the black scrape mark. Its a straight line angle and can only occur going forward

Melsy, Ive been flicking through saved pics & not sure you'd seen this before, so this ones for you. Please dont repost it, Im begging you.
Its frikkin huge, like those news article images that are illegible. Never.

Its hard to tell because of image resolution but looks like the sway bar is lightly bent. Quite a feat!

Even the front end steering assembly looks rough.

I can imagine the car jumping on impact. Possible the transmission sump landing on the stump. No sign the bollard footing.

How is this impact in the rear the mount. Don't know how forward.

Its all a bit dodgy to me as well. Only way I can make sense of it is that the damage done to the exhaust is done in reverse but the sump and cat conv damage looks to be going forward. If by jumped you mean like they got wedged on something and its rolled & shifted around underneath as they tried to dislodge it, I can accept that. Explains the damage not being consistent with one way or another too.

This one not so explainable. Looks to me like the furthest point a car got before reversing out but it spent some time losing oil there. Anyone know how far the bollards are off the road? I imagine its fairly close & probably grassy, so where's this if its not further into the track?

Pretty sure its bush all the way to the roadside at that track isn't it?

Isolate the photo to suit your agenda

Look at this photo and it is very consistent of being driven in



Looking at the left hand side there is a lot of wear and tear already. Notice also the 'hole' . All it takes is the stump to drop into that space and rip away any metal or to be revved, jumped and snapped. The thing that convinces me is there is no internal mark on that cut. If the car is in reverse then I expect marking to be inside that well where the break is
