Bowraville killer was aided by top police, Detective Inspector Gary Jubelin tells court

A “SERIAL killer” operating in a country town where three children disappeared has ­escaped justice because local officers were let down by the police hierarchy, a senior homicide detective has told a parliamentary committee. 

When all three children disappeared within five months from Bowraville, on the mid north coast 24 years ago, police bosses failed to recognise the seriousness and complexity of the cases, Detective Inspector Gary Jubelin said.

Insp Jubelin told the standing committee on law and ­justice — the first state parliamentary committee to inquire into a murder — that if all the evidence went before a jury now, there was a reasonable likelihood of the “serial killer” being convicted.

The suspected killer is a local man known to police and to the families of the three victims, Colleen Walker, Evelyn Greenup and Clinton Speedy-Duroux. He was acquitted of murdering Clinton, 16, in February 1991, and a charge of murdering Evelyn, 4, in October 1990, was then dropped.

The body of Evelyn’s cousin, Colleen, 16, reported missing in September 1990, has never been found.

“Three kids from the same community ­living in the same street murdered over a five-month period and no one has been called to account,” Insp Jubelin’s ­submission, signed off by Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione, says. “These matters should have been solved.” 30 Apr 2014

It is quite concerning that the corporate media does not expose the criminal police that aided and abetted the criminal involved.

In Australia the policy of the 'authorities' is to promote the police that are involved in criminal activities which my include but is not limited to drug trafficking and murder.

Australia is truly the new Alcatraz.
