    Australia - Maddison Murphy-West, 20, Pakenham, Vic, 23 Oct 2013

    Police believe that Maddison Murphy-West was murdered and the scene staged to look like a suicide. They haven't released much information other than that there are inconsistencies that case doubt on the initial determination of suicide. Maddison's body was found on October 23 and police have been quietly investigating since then.

    I believe this is the mystery death that was mentioned in the Kylie Blackwood thread.


    ps. this is the first thread I've created so I hope that I've done it all right

    Thank you, Nacho! This thread looks great to me!

    Yes... The death of this young lady was mentioned on another thread...

    I wonder why there was a delay in reporting it in MSM?

    At first I thought that it might be because they believed it to be a suicide but looking back at the Kylie Blackwood thread, it was declared a homicide soon after she was found. I find it strange that they released virtually nothing about Maddison's death until now, about 2 months after her death

    Thanks so much for starting this thread, Nacho. I've been wondering about this since it happened. Strangely quiet....just like Kylie's case.

    Thank you for starting this thread Nacho (good job - looks great )

    Finally something is in MSM so we can talk about Maddison's very untimely and suspicious death!!

    Is it possible that it is somehow connected to Kylie Blackwood's murder, or is it a coincidence that Maddison was murdered so soon after Kylie?

    And what is with the police silence in these matters? They are wasting a valuable resource by not seeking assistance from the public via media outlets, and by not keeping a high public profile in these matters IMO.

    This FB page says that Channel 10 are doing an interview today. Maybe something will be on the news tonight!

    Some interesting comments on the page too .. like the one on 3rd December.

    Maddie was well-loved by her friends.


    ETA: Report about Maddie on Channel 10 at 5pm and Channel 7 at 6pm tonight apparently. And maybe 6:30pm on Channel 9 too, according to the FB page administrator.

    I think the police have been very quiet for a very good reason.

    Prior to the recent media attention, the person responsible possibly would have thought they got away with the crime? The Herald Sun article mentioned that a friend had posted on the tribute page that she didn't believe it was suicide. So the guilty person may have been worried about those type of comments but if there was no public investigation happening, they may have thought the police accepted suicide.

    I find a few things strange- and today I was looking at the Facebook page of Peter Blackwood (husband of Kylie Blackwood) and he had shared a link in June of properties in Ahern Road Packenham the same street which Maddy was found dead.

    On her RIP Facebook page there is a picture of Maddy tagged in a photo from Lab22, this is a music production studio in Noble Park of which there was just 2 weeks ago an armed robbery at the bottle store next to the lab.

    Why would 2 blonde woman living so close to each other be found dead months apart and police are not releasing any info???

    Exactly!! Super suspicious.........are LE trying to keep the public calm? Trying to pretend there's nothing to be alarmed about...when there very may well be!

    I'm wondering if there are any other women who've died in the area that we haven't heard about in MSM before this??

    From some of the FB comments, it sounds like Maddi's friends have an idea of who might have done it......which makes me suspect it was a boyfriend/ex boyfriend. I'm wondering who her son's father is and his place in this whole thing?
