    Australia - Karlie Pearce-Stevenson, Belanglo State Forest NSW WhtFm Skeletal Aug'10

    A human skull was among skeletal remains found in the Belangalo State Forest where Ivan Milat murdered backpackers, one of the men who found the bones says.

    From Wikipedia:

    In 1992 and 1993, seven skeletons were found in the forest, in what was described by media as The Backpacker Murders and was considered to be the work of a serial killer. Eventually, Ivan Milat was convicted of the murders in 1996 and sentenced to life imprisonment.

    Backpacker killer Ivan Milat has reportedly taunted police from his jail cell, telling them he won't help them find the identity of the latest human skeleton found in his old dumping ground.

    Belanglo bones those of a young woman

    Belanglo bones those of a young woman

    Bones found in the Belanglo State Forest last month are from a young woman believed to have been murdered years after serial killer Ivan Milat was jailed.
    A forensic analysis of the bones has revealed the woman was aged between 15 and 25 when she died. A cause of death is yet to be determined.

    The bones are believed to have been in the area for up to 12 years, but the woman could have been killed as recently as four years ago as a T-shirt found near the remains was only on sale between 2003 and 2006.

    The T-shirt is described as being short sleeve, with a distinct motif featuring the word Angelic in pink text, a rose and a heart with angel wings.

    The brand, Chain Reaction for Girls, is no longer available in NSW.

    The size 10 shirt was found within 2m of the remains.
    Motif on the t-shirt:

    They say she doesn't fit the description of any ACT missing female, but her choice of t-shirt colors and the sleeper earring and to some extent even the white anklet sock is spot on for what appears to be Laura Haworth's personal style. Maybe they have already ruled Laura out with dentals?

    Bones may be linked to teens

    POLICE yesterday said it was too early to say if skeletal remains found in the Belanglo State Forest last month might belong to either of two women with links to the Riverina.




    Amber Haigh, from Kingsvale near Young, was 19 years old when she went missing from the Campbelltown railway station on June 5, 2002.


    Niamh Maye, an 18-year-old backpacker from Armidale, disappeared from near Tumut on March 31, 2002.

    THE mother of a missing Canberra woman fears bones found in the Belanglo State Forest last month may be those of her daughter, shattering dreams she could be alive.

    Police are investigating the possibility that the remains are those of Laura Haworth, who went missing in January 2008.

    Her mother, Beth Casilles, told the Sunday Canberra Times she felt sick when she heard of the find last month.

    ''While we crave closure, I felt sick thinking it might be Laura,'' Ms Casilles said.

    ''We harbour images of Laura enjoying a new life somewhere, not lying discarded near a log in the scrub.''

    The NSW Police Homicide Squad announced last week that a forensic analysis had revealed the bones were from a woman who was aged between 15 and 25 when she died. Ms Haworth was 25 when she disappeared.

    Ms Casilles contacted police in the days after trail bike riders discovered the bones near Dalys Waterhole on August 29, but was told they were not Ms Haworth's.

    But she said earlier this week police told her Ms Haworth's DNA was being compared to the remains as it was possible she was the victim.

    The T-shirt was sold in NSW in the mid-2000s, which means the the girl would have disappeared some time between four and seven years ago.

    ...

    This rules out backpacker murderer Ivan Milat, who was arrested in 1994 and sentenced to seven-life terms in 1996 for killing seven backpackers between 1989-1992.

    Another news story on the progress of the case.

    main points of it are

    -no matches found on the NSW missing person's DNA register or on the national database
    -police currently working on a possible match with a young Victorian woman
    -there is a "good chance" she was from overseas, and the search is being broadened to include contact with Interpol

    media link, herald sun newspaper 4/11/10 "Belanglo bones still not identified"

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/bre...-1225947921894

    key points of the story

    -still no DNA match
    -attempts to match dental information to dental records are continuing
    -dozens of possible leads were provided by the public, but most of them have been ruled out or they lack supporting evidence and seem unpromising.

    The remains of the young woman remain unidentified, but meanwhile in what appears to be a separate incident, a male teenage relative of Ivan milat has been arrested with a few other lads for killing one of their peer group and burying him in the Belanglo state forest.

    TASMANIA Police have circulated a facial impression of a young woman whose remains were found in a notorious New South Wales forest in the hope that someone might recognise her.

    Margaret River link to Belanglo forest murder mystery

    POLICE believe an unidentified young woman whose remains were found in a NSW forest in 2010 may have lived and worked in the Margaret River area for 10 years.

    The woman's remains were found near Daly's Pool in the notorious Belanglo State Forest by trail bike riders on August 29, 2010.

    Police now believe the woman may have been a backpacker or worked in a vineyard in Margaret River, and may have been of German or European background.

    snip

    The woman's remains have been extensively forensically examined and a reconstruction carried out by an anthropologist led police to release an image of what they believe the woman looked like.

    It is believed she was aged from 13 to 25 years, and may have died within the last 10 years.

    The length of her hair in the sketch is approximately the length it may have been at the time of her death.

    A distinctive t-shirt was also located at the site with the word 'Angelic' written on the front.

    This t-shirt was available for sale in NSW in the early 2000s.

    Anyone who can assist with this investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
