Murder sites visit unlikely

A VISIT to Bowraville by NSW Attorney-General Greg Smith to view first-hand the sites where three local children were murdered 20 years ago is not likely.

A spokeswoman said Mr Smith would examine material that came to light in the ABC Four Corners program aired on Monday, April 4.

“The Attorney-General has called for advice and will be examining the material,” she said.

“Investigators who have been working on the cases are aware of the location of the sites.”

Families of the three murdered children have called on Mr Smith to visit the town along with the Police Commissioner and the director of the Department of Public Prosecutions.

“If they came here they would see for themselves the links between the murders,” said Leonie Duroux, sister-in-law of murdered 16-year-old Clinton Speedy-Duroux.

In the Four Corners program, police officers Detective Inspector Gary Jubeling and former detective sergeant Jason Evers said neither of them had been called to give evidence at two trials or a subsequent inquest in 2004.

Local white man Jay Hart was acquitted of murder at both trials.

The families of Clinton Speedy-Duroux, 16 year-old Colleen Walker and four year-old Evelyn Greenup say they will continue the campaign to gain justice for their children.

“We won’t be going away – we want justice for our murdered children,” Ms Duroux said.
