what do people think of the sexual assault theory? But then, if he wanted to "forcibly have sex" with Jane and Arnna, why take Grant?
Not so sure about that one. It’s always been said whoever did it was only after one but had to take all three. If I’m been honest I doubt this case will ever be solved as unfortunate as that is.

Not sure. If someone had a strong desire/need for 1 of the children then a different abduction method, time and place may have been instigated. I find it difficult to reconcile wanting 1 and taking all 3. It presents so many difficulties

I have a nagging question.. Is the Identikit photo accurate?. Did the police compile other photos from the various descriptions? Current Face recognition programs could match the picture to a whole range of digitized photos. For example university year books or graduation photos.

Personally Id be looking back at the witness statements and looking for changing and dubious statements. Its Highly possible, the perpetrator may have had contact with the police.

Should the Police post the case files they have online? Like the Portuguese police did with the Maddie case? (ref the PJ Files)

I honestly hate them but the biggest true crime podcast and one of the most popular podcasts in general 'Crime Junkie' covered this case in their recent ep.

The news.com today suggest it was Arthur Stanley Brown.
He'd be the most prolific child killer in Australia and one of the worst in the world if he was responsible. Considering how many missing children cases where he had been a suspect. What a disgusting human.

Derek Percy might challenge him for the most evil bastard prize.

Both were disgusting so not much in it.

Is there someone out there still waiting for that thump on the door, as the police come knocking?
Who ever it is, they would be close to eighty now. They may have passed away, who knows?
One thing I know for sure, is that if they tried it today. its highly likely they would be detected quickly.
There's probably fifty of more CCtv cameras in that area of Glenelg today. Not counting dash cams and bus or tram cams.
If they were in a car, they probably would be tracked across the city via trafic cams etc.
There would be plenty of images of the kidnapper and his Car.

I would really like it to be solved

I think he was after Jane and or Arnna for romantic/sexual reasons but had to kill Grant to silence a witness.
Just an observation but in most of the existing photos, Jane and Arnna are in dresses not trousers or shorts like most girls would be today. Says a lot about South Australia in the mid-sixties.

If it was at the behest of the apparent high-connected "paedophile network" in Adelaide in the sixties and seventies, I think Jane and Arnna were the real prizes, that they were possibly kept alive and captive for a bit as sexual playthings, and Grant was killed because he could have told his parents or the police quite a lot about who took them.

The other reason Grant would have been of less use to most of the apparent "network" was pointed out elsewhere - Four Corners on the ABC had to take great care to remind its viewers that most paedos target little girls rather than little boys. GreyCrow

Not sure why you felt the need to highlight my name when you could have quoted me

As to the last line , while it isnt 50/50 neither is it 80/20

ie Four Corners got it wrong

I would have thought little girls are the main target simply because sexual offences against children are largely committed by men and boys and most people are not bisexual or homosexual.
Paedophiles are attracted to and their sexuality is geared to pre-pubescent children, so the criteria isn't necessarily gender specific and many of them have a history of targeting both sexes.
