    October 02, 2014

    THE heartbroken parents of Mark “Zeb” Emanuel Spencer will travel to the Gold Coast today after their son’s body was discovered yesterday.

    Mr Spencer’s housemate found the father-of-two dead on the back porch of their rural Coomera property in the early hours of the morning after he was apparently bashed to death.

    Police were called to a Foxwell Road address about 4am and found Mr Spencer unconscious, not breathing and with serious head injuries.

    Attempts to revive the 37-year-old were unsuccessful and detectives and forensic officers quickly secured the scene with homicide investigators also on site

    Police want to hear from anyone who was in the area or saw vehicles acting suspiciously between 12am and 4am on Wednesday October 1.

    Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000

    Yesterday one of Mr Spencer’s best friends brought with her a miniature motorcycle which had been welded into a letterbox.

    Mourners were asked to fill it with letters about Mr Spencer which will one day be passed on to his two children.

    Mr Spencer’s ashes will be returned to Nowra, New South Wales and a second service held there at a later date.

    From March:

    http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/q...83ea9a1ea8074f

    A man accused of rape was granted bail after a magistrate described by police as lenient commented that it was unusual he wore condoms during the alleged offence.

    Mark Vincent Dayney was released despite objections from police and, while on bail, allegedly went on to kill and rob a man who responded to an ad on Craigslist.
    From September:

    http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/techno...d3ca4f71947466

    A 33-year-old mother of three, Peta Lorang-Goubran, and her 28-year-old partner Mark Dayney, both from the Gold Coast suburb of Coombabah, were later charged with murder. They are currently in custody.

    Superintendent David Hutchinson said Mr Spencer had responded to an ad which purported to be for the woman’s sexual services. Police alleged when Lorang-Goubran turned up to meet Mr Spencer she was with Dayney and they assaulted Mr Spencer with a baseball bat.

    “They would advertise on Craigslist online and they would advertise in a manner which reflected an offering of sexual services,” Superintendent Hutchinson told Fairfax at the time. “They then had a plan to go to the client’s residence and actually rob that person.
