    Tia’s grandmother feared another Daniel Morcombe case

    NOVEMBER 09, 2015 5:25PM

    TIAHLEIGH Palmer’s grandmother warned police they could be facing another Daniel Morcombe case the day before her body was found.Sue Palmer, 64, said a text from her eldest daughter, Tiahleigh’s aunt, last Wednesday had prompted her to call police to convince them that her grand-daughter was more than a “wilful runaway”.
    “My daughter had been to the police, she had done all the right things and she was doing what I can’t do – she was scouring the streets,” Ms Palmer said. “I get on to a sergeant and he said I had to ring the 1300 number.
    “Then I really went to town on police. I said, ‘do you want another Daniel Morcombe?’.”
    The next day a body was discovered on the banks of Pimpama River by fishermen. A day later police confirmed the body was Tiahleigh.
    “Why didn’t they go to the mother on Day One? She doesn’t have a car and her partner does shift work.
    “She’s pregnant, she has a little baby and a teenager,” Ms Palmer said. “That’s the attitude they have … she’s just a runway. She’s just a wilful girl. Girls are wilful. She will turn up.”

    On the night she disappeared, Tiahleigh had wanted to stay at the house of a friend – but the friend's mother did not allow it.
    The mother has posted about the regret she feels after she didn't let the little girl sleepover.

    Bravehearts founder Hetty Johnston says the suspected murder of Brisbane schoolgirl Tiahleigh Palmer highlights the need for reform to the Child Protection Act.
    Ms Johnston says the six-day delay between Tiahleigh's disappearance on October 30 and the police alert would have been due to laws restricting publicity about children in state care.
    The 12-year-old's body was discovered on the banks of a Gold Coast river hours after police had issued their alert.
    Ms Johnston says the restrictions on carers and parents when a foster child goes missing are actually making them targets for predators.
    "They can target these particular kids because they are far more vulnerable than any other and response to their disappearance is less than adequate," she told AAP.

    Tiahleigh Palmer suspected murder: school security debated as community mourns 12yo girl

    School principals worried about student safety after the suspicious death of a 12-year-old girl south of Brisbane should take action to install security cameras, Queensland's Education Minister Kate Jones says.

    Ms Jones was responding to Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale's call for CCTV cameras in schools, as police continue to investigate the suspected murder of 12-year-old Tiahleigh Palmer.

    Friends reported last seeing Tiahleigh near Marsden State High School, south of Brisbane, about 8:00am on October 30.
    Her naked body was found by fishermen on a remote stretch of riverbank on the Gold Coast, about 30 kilometres away, six days later.

    Police have been appealing for any Marsden residents with CCTV footage to hand it in.

    Detectives are treating the case as a homicide but as it could take weeks to determine the exact cause of death and Coast police sources suggest that “so far there are not a lot of leads”.

    Assistant Commissioner Brian Codd last night told the Bulletin: “It is going to be a hard one.

    “This is a young girl who has had an incredibly challenging life from an early age.

    Organisers have been asking parents to start lobbying their schools to ensure a text message system that alerted them to their children attending campuses was operating.

    “Six hours is a long time not to (have) known your child did not arrive at school,” the Facebook page said.
