Many in the town at the time, showed up to have their DNA collected in an effort to find the mother. Over two decades later, this article doesn't indicate how she was eventually found but maybe one of her relatives has ended up in the database.

A Kambalda woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said she was among the women aged between 18 and 25 who came forward to clear their names.

"Every local went down and was happy to do the DNA tests because we all wanted to know who it was," she said.

The woman, who was 18 at the time, said she never thought the mystery could be solved and was "devastated" to hear the accused was so young.

  • A woman, who was 14 at the time, has been charged with the murder of a baby in 1995
  • The body of the child was discovered in a toilet in a Kambalda caravan park
  • The 38-year-old woman is being extradited from Victoria
Of course, given her young age at the time investigations are ongoing into who fathered the child and the circumstances of the conception.

What a horribly sad story.

The father has been hunted down and charged with offences from when she was aged 11, how awful. He was in his 30s at the time.

What a horrible situation she's probably been running from in one way or another for most of her life.
