    Australia - Baby Burial Site Sought, Gin Gin, QLD, 2014

    http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/quee...317-34xbe.html

    Police are digging up a property in the Bundaberg region, which may be the burial site for several concealed child births from the late 1990s and early 2000s.
    Homicide and child trauma taskforce investigators have declared the Gin Gin property a crime scene as they excavate a small area of the site and conduct scientific examinations.
    By 2.30pm on Monday, cold case homicide Detective Inspector Mick Dowie said no remains had been found but police would continue searching for up to three days.

    He said the former occupants of the rural property were being investigated, and the people currently living there were not persons of interest.

    The inspector declined to comment on how many bodies may be buried at the site and their identities, whether the former occupants were cooperating with police, or how investigators were tipped off.
    "We're investigating information in relation to the concealment of a number of births. There may be evidence there of human remains, and that's the purpose of the excavation," he told Fairfax Media.
    He said police had been looking into the information for "quite some time now".
    "We know who we're investigating. We know the family concerned," he said.

    POLICE are preparing to exhume multiple babies from secret graves hidden for more than a decade on a rural property near Bundaberg.

    Forensic officers and cold case detectives swarmed the property on the outskirts of Gin Gin yesterday after a tip that the births of babies had been concealed in the late 1990s and early 2000s........

    Cold Case Homicide Unit Detective Inspector Mick Dowie said the same family had lived on the property during the period of the deaths but had since moved away.

    Det Insp Dowie said a single family was involved in the incident but he would not identify them or the property.

    How awful this sounds And how awful for the towns people - it's only a small place. Imagine finding out something like this had happened......

    Foreign items but no bones have been seized from a rural Queensland property in the search for the bodies of babies believed buried there more than a decade ago.

    Police are focusing on one family who used to live on the bush-covered land near Gin Gin, southwest of Bundaberg.

    I wonder who the person was who tipped them off and started this search? I'm wondering if it was a family member?

    Me too, I would assume its someone who has knowledge and has had guilt knowing about it. I would like to know what they have found.
