    Australia - Tia Landers, 28, tortured & killed, Brighton, QLD, 16 June 2014

    Police have charged a couple with murder and torture after discovering a body in a shallow grave in a forest in Beerburrum, north of Brisbane.

    '28-year-old missing woman Tia Landers suffered a violent death after voluntarily going to the Brighton home of de facto couple John Edward Harris and Linda Eileen Appleton, police allege.

    The family of a 28-year-old woman who was allegedly tortured before she was killed and dumped in a Sunshine Coast forest say they are desperate for answers.

    Two people from Brighton have been charged with murder after the body of Tia Landers, 28, was discovered in a shallow grave north of Roys Road in Beerburrum on Thursday.

    John Edward Harris, 42, and Linda Eileen Appleton, 40, have also each been charged with three counts of deprivation of liberty, torture, interfering with a corpse, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and two counts of unlawful possession of weapons.

    JULY 04, 2014: Who was Tia Landers, the ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ mum?
    Read more: http://www.news.com.au/national/who-...-1226977373325
    THE still-active Facebook profile of slain “Bonnie and Clyde” mum Tia Maria Jayne Landers reveals a woman who spent her life struggling to stay on the right side of the law.

    Police ended weeks of agony for the 28-year-old’s family yesterday when her body was found dumped in a Queensland forest.

    Landers was one half of a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde duo, accused of abusing drugs and participating in a violent home invasion. She suffered from schizophrenia and had fallen victim to the 2011 floods in Ipswich in which she lost most of her belongings.

    She leaves behind four young children and her longtime lover, Wade Bartz, a notorious gang member who is in prison.

    Some very harrowing details about the torture of Tia have been released. Two of her male friends are alleged to have been forced to watch as well, at gunpoint. I feel so sorry for her children. I hope family can break the news to them gently, in the least painful way, before they hear it from someone else.

    It is very hard to think how that could be done though. It's just so awful to think about them hearing this. My thoughts are with them.

    I hope whoever did this to Tia is locked away and never, ever sees the light of day.

    Me too, zwiebel. Those poor children.
    So, so horrible. They made sure that Tia couldn't run, and even stopped for a little 'refresher' part way through their horrendous attack! And was this all in retribution because she ran from a police raid at that house in May? Was she thought to have drawn the police there?


    "She failed to appear in court in May as Mr Bartz's co-accused, over a violent Brisbane home invasion on Australia Day, Newscorp reported."

    Her sometime boyfriend is part of the Angry Gang in jail so those two are in real trouble. Tia was no angel obviously but what a horrible way to go.

    Poor woman
    TIA Landers’ life ended in agony as she was tortured with knives, machetes and a sword – then shot twice before a plastic bag was wrapped around her head, police will allege.

    The mother-of-four’s harrowing final moments were witnessed by two male friends, who were forced at knife and gunpoint to watch her ordeal then ordered to wrap her body and clean up the blood.

    The gruesome murder was carried out by a couple who interrupted the brutal torture session to inject themselves with drugs, police will allege.

    John Edward Harris, 42, and Linda Eileen Appleton, 41, were remanded in custody yesterday, charged with a crime that has shocked even seasoned detectives.

    I see Tia's body was found dumped off the same road where Daniel Morcombe's killer Cowan took him to....



    The scene where the body of Tia Landers was found off Roys Road, Beerwah


    *****************************************

    The court heard Mr Cowan went on to say that he took Daniel to an abandoned house at the end of Roys Road in Beerwah

    THAT is too weird!
    Did they think that it would be a long time before anyone went down that road again, so it was a good dumping ground?! Can't be a coincidence .... can it?
