    Australia - Teresa Mancuso Paulino, 49, found slain, Reservoir, Vic, 14 July 2013

    Reservoir resident Teresa Manusco (aka Teresa Paulino) was found dead in the back yard of her Massey St. home on July 14, after neighbours heard "strange noises" and called 000. Police are treating her death as 'suspicious' and an autopsy report is pending re her injuries and cause of death, which police will not at this stage discuss.

    The killer apparently left footprints outside her home, and a dark coloured 4WD seen parked in the street at an odd angle at the time is being sought as a possible connection.

    Ms. Manusco was a hairdresser, a mother of two adult sons, and was well-liked in her local community. She had been separated from her husband for about 15 years.

    Teresa lived at home with her elderly mother. I hope her mother is alright! I wonder if she witnessed anything?

    Saw this on the news, nothing since though. Seems like a case of domestic violence, you do wonder why they don't follow up with completion reports in the media. Otherwise, if it was some random killer wouldn't this have been more profile? Victoria, unfortunately, is rising in crime and violence every day. JMO

    My first thought was domestic violence.. But they've been separated 15 years? Kind of a slow burner, if it was the ex-hubby.

    The skewiff parking of that 4wd might indicate that the perp did rush up, leap out and attack her, though. Very personal and full of rage, if it was indeed his car.

    It's not just Vic, though, re the increased violence.. seems to me that women are being killed (or mysteriously vanishing) all over the country at the moment.

    I worry that with this increase, we're going down the same path with MSM as other countries -- with some murders being 'newsworthy' and some not. Used to be, --every murder-- here was massive deal, as they really didn't happen all that often.

    The violence against women issue really needs to translate to more severe sentencing in courts. The huge number of rapes and murders -needs- to be looked at very seriously by -everyone- or we'll end up even more hostage to the crooks out there. I've hated watching Aus turn from a trusting society to an untrusting one...

    Sorry, just read too many Aussie cases lately. >< Gets me hopping mad at what's happening here...

    Bah -- SORRY for the misspelling of Teresa's name in the title of the thread and elsewhere... I took it from an incorrect MSM report, and was just so tired I didn't notice it was different elsewhere...

    Her correct name is Teresa Mancuso, NOT Manusco. I see the name's been corrected in the MSM reports now, too.

    Could a kindly mod please help with those corrections here? I feel terrible..

    A picture of Teresa from msm:



    Police are apparently surmising that she probably knew her killer, no sign of forced entry, etc..

    Here's an October 2013 article.

    On Tuesday, police released CCTV footage captured from nearby shops of a dark 4WD vehicle that may be significant to Ms Paulino’s death.

    Police say the footage shows a car driving around the Massey Avenue area. They believe this same car was seen three times in the area about 9pm while doing laps, before it drove away a short time later.

    ‘‘We think this could hold the key,’’ Inspector Potter said. ‘‘We need to ID the person in the 4WD and we need to be in a position to say why that person was there.’’

    Police previously said there had been reports of a 4WD parked erratically on a kerb near the house. The vehicle’s front was hanging onto the road and would have disrupted traffic.

    Public appeals to identify the parked vehicle failed, Inspector Potter said on Tuesday, adding that the new footage of a car was ‘‘consistent’’ with the description of the earlier vehicle.

    ‘‘We think these two incidents are connected,’’ he said. ‘‘We think the car doing laps is the same car, we think it’s the same car as the vehicle that was parked erratically.’’
    "Police investigating the death of 49-year-old Teresa Paulino release CCTV of a vehicle possibly linked to her death. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000"

    The two sons of murder victim Teresa Paulino today appealed for information about their mum's death.

    It comes as Homicide Squad detectives released new CCTV footage of a 4WD possibly linked to the 49-year-old's death.

    Ms Paulino, who was also known as Teresa Mancuso, was found at the back of her Massey Avenue house in Reservoir on Monday 15 July at 9.45pm by a family member.

    The Herald Sun understands the dark coloured 4WD car of Ms Paulino's ex-husband, Fernando Paulino, has been seized by police and remains it its possession.

    Det Insp John Potter confirmed Mr Paulino has been questioned by police and cannot be ruled out of its investigation.

    "We've spoken to Mr Paulino, we've spoken to him on a number of occasions and he hasn't been ruled out of this investigation. But I can't go into any further detail," he said.

    Mr Potters said the dark coloured 4WD captured on CCTV from a shop in Massey Avenue appears to doing laps of the road.

    "One possibility is the person is looking at the house, driving past the house, that's a possibility," he said.

    He added: "We need to identify the person in the 4WD and we need to be in a position to say that person was there.

    THEY died in places they should have been safe - and police are getting closer to finding their killers.

    Investigators have a key suspect in the murder of Ms Mancuso, a hairdresser.

    Ms Mancuso, who was also known as Teresa Paulino, was found at the back of her Massey Ave house in Reservoir on Monday, July 15 at 9.45pm by a family member.

    Detective Inspector John Potter said CCTV footage shows a car driving along the same street as Ms Paulino's home.

    "We have a car, a four-wheel drive, dark in colour, parked erratically in Massey Avenue, near number 19, and now we have a four-wheel drive, dark in colour, driving circuits around Massey Avenue around 9pm," Det Insp Potter said.

    "So we're looking at the possibility it's the same car."

    Police said the footage shows the vehicle drove south past a row of shops on Massey Avenue three times in 12 minutes on the night of Ms Paulino's death.

    The vehicle is seen a fourth time driving past the shops heading north a short time later.

    My first thought was that it was the ex-husband (based on absolutely no facts, though!). So was interesting to read that about the car. If it is him, I sincerely hope he is arrested for it. Even though it's 15 years since they were together, you never know - he could have been trying to reunite with her and she rejected him or she could have met someone new and it triggered his rage.

    She looks like such a lovely woman.

    Teresa lived at home with her elderly mother. I hope her mother is alright! I wonder if she witnessed anything?
    In bordermail.com article of 7-22-13 above ("Police Step Up Probe...")

    It is reported that, "Plaster casts of shoe prints lifted from a front garden bed were taken by police."

    I wonder if LE has found the owner of the shoes that matched these prints?

    I wonder how often/recent Teresa had been in contact with her Ex...?

    I wonder if he visited her regularly at her home, where she lived with her mother?

    So, here's another woman up this end of town dead -- and no arrest yet. No updates, no massive msm fuss.

    With several murders that look like domestic violence around here, as well as several that look like random violence toward women, and nearly of them in the woman's own home, I am disgusted that there's not more noise about the issue.

    One thing, though - I have a lot of confidence in our homicide squad. They are hard-working and don't give up!

    Teresa did not deserve the death she got. Her sons do not deserve this to be the memory they have, nor the pain its caused them. Melbourne needs to start setting examples in the courts, regarding violence toward women!
