    In my culture I'd call it disgusting. But I live in an unfortunate state in the US that calls 16 the age of consent. 12 is still a child, so is 16 as far as I'm concerned. Helping you to understand is not my problem.

    Australia - Tiffany Taylor, 16, Waterford West Brisbane QLD, 12 July 2015

    as far as i know, by law, you are still a minor at 12 here in oz. you can leave school at 16 if you want to but that means leaving with no qualifications, unless you leave to do a technical course or become an apprentice
    i am not sure what the age of consent is in oz, i thought it was 16 but don't quote me on that
    i still don't understand how can a 12 yr old girl moved in with a 30+ yr old man, what about her parents? in the worst case scenario she could have become a ward of the state if they could not look after her and the "boyfriend" could have gone to jail
    recently a young girl (12) was "married" to a 28 yr old man, i think the trial is still going but he has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor, the father's excuse that he "didn't know" that forced, arranged marriages between adults and minors weren't legal in australia didn't wash and i think he has been charged too (child endangerment i think)
    i am trying to be even and give the benefit of the doubt to the family in this case but i feel like munch's "the scream" painting!!!!ImageUploadedByTapatalk1440193882.184607.jpg

    wish I hadn't found this case - it's sick how this "man" behaved and also sick how this poor child was so let down. Will be going to bed again tonight wondering what the hell is wrong with some people in this world!

    Still Tiffany has not been located, terrible situation and it looks like the whole family situation is not stable, at least 2 girls in the family with early teen pregnancies and realistically, what 12 yo has a relationship with a man that old?
    Why was she not in school and where were the welfare people when they knew she wasn't in school? They had to know.

    Search for Tiffany Taylor expanded following tip-off

    A reported sighting of a body in bushland west of Brisbane has prompted Queensland authorities to expand the search for the body of missing teenager Tiffany Taylor.
    The 16-year-old, who was 20 weeks pregnant, has not been seen since she allegedly met up with Rodney Wayne Williams, 60, on July 12.
    Williams has since been charged with her murder even though detectives are yet to locate Tiffany’s body.
    About 50 police and SES officers were searching an area near the Wivenhoe Dam, 50km west of Brisbane, on Saturday.
    Police received a tip-off from a woman who thought she had seen a body near the Twin Bridges Reserve this month, Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Grant Ralston said.
    “(There was) potentially something there,” he told reporters at the scene.

    Or perhaps 'whatevered'?
    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    I thought it was a different brand of phone.

    This "boyfriend" needs to be locked up immediately if he started sleeping with her when she was 12. That's child abuse.

    A police spokesman confirmed the most recent search located a smashed mobile phone but it was not believed to belong to Tiffany.
    The teenager's distinctive white Samsung mobile phone is also yet to be found but data collected from the device told police she had been in the area the day she disappeared.

    Does anyone know how the police have charged this POS 60 year old (he looks more like 80!) with murder without a body? Did they find a lot of poor Tiffany's blood in a hotel room, or something?

    Another poster mentioned that if you search his name on Mako and location in Tasmania that he's got a very interesting record. I imagine that rang alarm bells for the police. I don't know what else they found. Perhaps her blood?

    From the above article;

    Police will allege Tiffany contacted Williams on her mobile phone shortly before noon on July 12 after communicating with him through an online dating site.

    It will be alleged Williams agreed to pay Tiffany $500 for the encounter.

    Police have claimed Williams drove to Logistics Place at Larapinta where his Hyundai Excel remained stationary for 22 minutes.

    The teenager’s phone stopped working shortly before 2pm.

    I feel so sad when I read Tiffany's sisters statement wavering from present to past tense and back again.
