    Murder probe after bodies found in NSW
    Tweed Heads Detective Superintendent Stuart Wilkins said the search had turned to sand dunes north of Pottsville on Tuesday after police received specific information last week.
    "We are unable at this time to identify those bodies but it is certainly possible that they are our missing persons."
    Supt Wilkins told News Corp Australia it was a murder investigation but the cause of death would be a matter for the coroner.
    Mr Hutchings' grieving mother, Diana, said that Eeva was a beautiful girl and her son was a beautiful man.

    Greg Hutchings left for swim with daughter Eeva, then never came home
    When Greg Hutchings left his mother's home on the NSW north coast with his four-year-old daughter just over a fortnight ago, he kissed his mother goodbye and said he would be back in a couple of hours.
    There was no indication of the devastation that was to come.
    He said he would be back just after 1pm. But concerns were first raised when Eeva's mother turned up at Mrs Hutchings' house, asking for him.
    Police did not believe the pair, who had no access to a car, could have travelled far but their search included the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, where Mr Hutchings had previously lived.

    Heartbreak in the dunes as Greg Hutchings and Eeva Dorendahl found dead
    GREG Hutchings had come to think of the idyllic stretch of white sand a 30-minute walk from his modest Pottsville unit as his hide-away from the world.
    And it was here, under a giant Pandanus tree metres from the beach and only accessible by foot across a sandy track littered with rocks, that two bodies believed to be his and that of his four-year-old daughter Eeva were found yesterday.
    Hundreds of surfers, fishermen and swimmers potentially wandered past the spot in the 18 days since the 35-year-old and Eeva were reported missing as tourists flocked to the northern NSW coast, filling up all four caravan parks between Pottsville and *Cabarita.
    "They were under a tree and very difficult to find, we were quite lucky to spot them," Det Supt Wilkins said.
    News of the discovery spread quickly through the close-knit community of Pottsville.

    A family's worst fears come true as the bodies of Greg Hutchings and his daughter Eeva, 4, are found
    • Bodies of two people discovered at 10am this morning
    • Police are expected to formally identify the pair soon
    • Father and daughter were last seen on Saturday, January 11th
    • Family: "She was a beautiful girl and he was a beautiful man as well"
    "This is a murder investigation but it is too early to speculate on who is responsible for these deaths," he said.
    Mr Hutchings had told Ms Dorendahl he was too unwell from a gastric bug to drive Eeva the three hours north to Ms Dorendahl's Nambour home in Queensland, instead arranging a handover in Pottsville on January 11.
    When he did not show up, the alarm was raised.

    Greg Hutchings' mother does not believe the deaths of her son and granddaughter was a murder-suicide (edited title)
    The distraught Pottsville grandmother is urging police and the community to keep an open mind to third-party involvement after two bodies were found on Tuesday, believed to be her son Greg Hutchings, 35, and his tiny, blonde-haired daughter Eeva.
    Her desperate plea comes as the close-knit Pottsville community paints a picture of Mr Hutchings as a kind but almost reclusive man rarely spotted during his six months or so in the sleepy beach-side town.
    Ms Hutchings said yesterday it was too soon for her to reflect upon the lives of her son and granddaughter, but she hoped police and the community were looking at the case objectively.
    "I don't believe it was a suicide-murder ... none of us can imagine him doing anything to harm this child," she said.
    "Two people have passed away and I think they deserve an investigation of the truth.
    "The community deserves an investigation of the truth. I know the community wants answers, we want answers."

    Greg Hutchings: Sympathy for the devil
    A chaplain who has worked in our hardest jails said to me yesterday: "I've met the worst of the worst and come to the conclusion they're not much different to the best of the best. They just had different lives." "We can still lament," he said. "There is a place for breaking our hearts without judgments or solutions."

    TWEED police have been unable to find how Greg Hutchings and daughter Eeva Dorendahl-Hutchings died, but they still expect to release their bodies to family in the next couple of days.
    A post mortem by a coroner on the father and his daughter has been completed, but due to the dire condition of the remains no concrete information on how they died has been found.

    "At this stage no cause of death has been established due to the bodies being there for so long," Tweed Byron LAC Detective Superintendent Stuart Wilkins said.
    "We're taking other steps to establish cause of death and we're going through the forensic process, keeping an open mind.

    Murder-suicide suspected as bodies of Greg Hutchings and Eeva Dorendahl are released

    Tweed-Byron police superintendent Stuart Wilkins said the bodies had been cleared for release to the families and funerals were expected to be held ‘in the neat future’.

    But he said post-mortems had proven inconclusive and police were still trying to determine how Mr Hutchings and his daughter died.
    While police believe it is unlikely a third party was involved, Supt Hutchings said investigators were ‘keeping all options open’.

    “We’re looking at all avenues for the report to the Coroner,’’ he said.

    Mr Hutchings mother, Diana, said she was concerned the bodies were being released prematurely before a ‘proper investigation’.
