    Stephanie Scott: Police urge Leeton community not to live in fear after teacher's death



    Residents of the south-west New South Wales town where school teacher Stephanie Scott was allegedly murdered should not live in fear, the police officer in charge of the investigation says.

    School cleaner Vincent Stanford, 24, has been charged with Ms Scott's murder and remains in custody.

    I cannot find any mention today re the separation of the twin brothers Standford, Marcus and Vincent from the current custody arrangements... they are being held together at the same station,.. nobody seems to think this is a good idea, but nothing seems to be processed to change that situation.. . ... I will keep checking the local paper, although, now, there is no such thing .. all those little local papers have been amalgamated..

    Is there a reason why noone has posted for weeks on this case or am I looking in the wrong place?

    I would like to know, why Marcus St. and Vincent St. were separated from one another in Australia (Marcus in Forreston and Vincent in Leeton).
    Marcus has said on twitter, he's not allowed to come "home". What meant the mention??

    Also I would like to know, why the identical twin brothers have to be necessarily separated at the Detention center??


    Anybody heard something??

    Separation of people involved in the same crime is so they can't discuss it and tell each other what they are telling their own lawyers or investigators or what those people are telling them. Often one ends up giving evidence against the other in return for a lesser charge or sentence.

    Marcus would be the one they are hoping to get to cooperate I expect for these reasons.


    All in my opinion only

    I would like to know something more:

    Did Marcus own a car?
    What car?
    Did he camping like his family in Leeton?
    Did he play geo caching?
    If yes: with whom did he play? A group? Which group?
    Did he store some things which belong to Vincent?
    Did he enter Australia with some belongings of Vincent?
    If yes: A suitcase? With secret content?
    Has Marcus an elderly friend/relative who is living near Adalaide Hills/Forreston?

    Questions enough, but no answers probably.
    Some insiders out of Forreston would be great to come here onto WS thread .............

    But they weren't allowed to be together before the crime...why was Marcus not allowed home?
    Curiosity killed the cat...but satisfaction brought it back.

    An outdoor amphitheatre, dedicated to murdered Leeton High School teacher Stephanie Scott, is set to become a gathering place for the entire community.

    Hello everyone, I am a local from this town. I can give you some insight about distances, times,locations. what's happening on the farming properties at the time. I also know the property where Stephanie's car was found. I won't reveal the relationship I have to the property owners I will tell you it is very close.

    The property owners did not even know Stephanie was missing until I told them about it when I visited them on Wednesday

    Stephanie's car was not on the property on Easter Sunday. I know that 100%.

    The car was not driven through the main/front gate of the property nor did it come in via the gates along Irrigation Way. These were locked with chains and padlocks. They remained undisturbed until the police had finished investigating and for a while after that. The few times they are unlocked, deliveries of fertiliser, lime, or similar so that the trucks can dump the load close to the vines.


    I read in one of the earlier threads that perhaps Leeton locals are trying to protect VS identity a little. I can tell you, no chance of that. Leeton is a very friendly place. Newcomers are welcomed and encouraged to join the local groups. There is a huge array of activities ranging from Mothers Groups, Line Dancing, Craft, Art groups, various support groups, all matter of sports, social clubs, religious, and anything else you can think of. Apart from people in VS immediate workplace, the property managers, his neighbours... no one knew of him! That's highly unusual.

    The mother and eldest son do not live in the Maiden Ave property any longer. I am not sure where they live now but are still in town. The mother is still working at the nursing home. The eldest is struggling to find work. I'm not sure how much I can post about him. I have spoken to one of the people who provides support for them both.

    I'm happy to answer any questions. There's so much I want to share with you all.

    What I can say is that the murder of Stephanie has changed the town. It has not closed us up. We are more open and friendlier! We speak to each other and we speak and get to know anyone new. There are many newly arrived refugees and others here for work. All welcome, all made to they are valued members of the community.

    Hi EurekaLemon, thank you for introducing yourself and posting. Some WS members may just take you up on your offer.
    If you wish, you can apply to become a websleuth 'verified insider' which gives you recognition for your local status.
    BIB Regarding innocent family members of the accused, I believe that we are not allowed to 'sleuth' them as they are not POIs named in msm and they have a right to privacy as do the rest of us. But VS and MS are named as POIs in msm, so we are free to 'sleuth' etc.
    This is an especially tragic crime given the circumstances, and local knowledge may add 'context' for those of us who are not local to Leeton. Hope this is helpful. Thank you for being with us as the trial draws near.

    Welcome Eurekalemon and thank you for your insight into Leeton and how things are since Stephanie's murder. As a local you may wish to become verified. Below is an explanation of the verification process and rules.

    The eldest son is off limits here. There is no indication that he is involved in this case. Similarly, sleuthing other family members of both Stephanie and the accused are off limits.

    Verified Professionals and Case Insiders

    We are lucky enough to have posters from all walks of life with a broad spectrum of expertise. Some hold specialized knowledge that applies to the various circumstances of the cases we discuss, and can contribute valuable insight and information. We welcome their participation.

    To ensure that anyone posting as a "professional" in a specific field truly is what/who they claim to be, WS employs a verification process.

    The verification process also applies to "case insiders". Relatives, friends, and others personally acquainted with a victim or suspect; or a professional working on behalf of a victim or the family, i.e., a private investigator, can submit a request to be verified as a "case insider".

    If you would like to become verified, please contact the site owner at wsverify@gmail.com with your Websleuths name, your real name, the case, a telephone number, and the times when you can be reached.

    If you are a "professional" or "case insider", but would prefer not to be verified, please understand that you will be required to follow the general rules for posting, and back up your statements with links to appropriate sources.

    More information on how to submit a request, and the information required, can be found at this link:

    Verification Process for Professionals and Insiders

    NOTE: Websleuths does not condone members becoming personally involved in cases by initiating contact with family members, law enforcement, or the media. This does not preclude responding to a request for volunteers, or utilizing proper channels to report valid information, i.e., "a tip", to law enforcement.
    Any opinions I post here are my own and not those of Websleuths.

    Thank you for the welcome

    I would love to be a verified insider and will look into it further.


    I'm 100% in agreance for not sleuthing people who are not persons of interest. As I posted earlier, I'd rather not say anything about them. As much as I love Leeton, sometimes the gossip and innuendo is so ridiculous. I have pulled up people on what they say to me and how insane it is. I have first hand information on certain things - these are on public record, it's just knowing where to look and who to ask about it.

    Thank you for the welcome! I love this site and I'm happy I am no longer a lurker. As stated in my previous post, I would rather not say anything about the people who are not involved or not a person of interest.

    I will definitley look at becoming an insider. Any information that is on public record, I am happy to share.

    Gosh, I wish I could just write in CAPS how I personally know some of the information. I have photos too! EEKK!! I know exactly where I was and what I was doing that day.


    On Easter Sunday, I had to drive back home to to get something I had forgotten. The whole drive back ( around 12 minutes each way), pulling into my drive way, opening up my house and driving back, it was just creepy. I even said to my husband when I arrived back at the venue that it was eerily quiet and just unsettling.



    One detail that has been troubling me is the email that was sent. We have no details if it was a personal email or a work email ending with @det.gov.au . I have one of them as I am in the same field of work as Stephanie. Even though it has been a while since I have been in a classroom, I am still part of the department and my email is active. The department of education is very strict as to the type of email you can send and receive. Sending confirmation to the bus company would be seen as personal therefore prohibited. Also, the email and DET site itself is accessible from anywhere you have internet access. Why would she not use her phone/PC/laptop etc for this or did she? There are several places around town where there is Free WiFi. We don't know from which device it was sent. I'm sure the police have all the details and it will come up in court.
