    Australia - Cory Breton, 28, & Iuliana Triscaru, 31, Brisbane, 25 Jan 2016 *Arrests*

    Iuliana Triscaru, Lelan Harrington, and Cory Breton


    No proof of life in Queesnsland missing-trio case
    Three drug users missing in Queensland for almost two weeks haven't used their phones or bank accounts since they vanished.


    Brisbane, Queensland, Australia -
    POLICE say they have no proof of life for Cory Breton, 28, Lelan Harrington, 23, and Iuliana Triscaru, 31, who were last seen on January 24 and 25 and who are known to associate with "nefarious characters".

    Officers only realised Mr Harrington and Ms Triscaru were missing after starting to investigate the disappearance of Mr Breton. All three are from the Logan area, south of Brisbane.
    Two vehicles belonging to Mr Breton have been found, one at a ferry carpark but police say inquiries on Stradbroke Island, where they trio may have headed, have failed to find any trace of the three.

    Regional Crime Coordinator, Detective Superintendent Dave Hutchinson, said Mr Breton was reported missing by his partner on January 29.
    But he hasn't been seen since January 24.

    "As a consequence of our investigation into missing person Cory Breton we tried to identify his associates and friends and speak to those," he told reporters.
    "During that investigation we determined a couple of his associates couldn't be located."

    He said Ms Triscaru was only reported missing on Monday, February 1.

    But she was last seen by her brother more than a week earlier on January 24, the same day as Mr Breton was last sighted.

    Mr Harrington was only reported missing yesterday and hasn't been seen since January 25, Supt Hutchinson said.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    _ 1454648248376.jpg Lelan Harrington, 23, was last seen on January 25 at his sister's house in Logan, south of Brisbane, and has not made contact with family and friends since.

    Police believe Mr Harrington may be with Cory Breton, 28, reported missing on January 29 from the Logan area and Iuliana Triscaru, 31, reported missing on February 1 from Marsden.

    Neither have been seen or contacted family since January 24.

    "We did have some information that they may have gone to Stradbroke Island, we have had inquiries made on Stradbroke Island and haven't located them."

    While police admit there is nothing to suggest foul play, none of the trio have used their mobile phones or accessed their bank accounts for almost two weeks.

    A man who was among three people, including a mother of three, reported missing south of Brisbane two weeks ago has turned up safe and well, Logan detectives have said. Mr Harrington was found safe and well and was helping police with their investigation.

    It's certainly not a nice area of Brisbane. I hope they turn up safe and sound.

    Police say metal box found in Logan dam may contain bodies of missing pair Cory Breton and Iuliana Triscaru

    1:18pm February 11, 2016

    Police say they believe a large metal box found in a Logan dam contains the bodies of missing Logan pair Cory Breton and Iuliana Triscaru, after six people faced court charged with their murders.

    Police had established two crime scenes in relation to the case yesterday, and Detective Superintendent Dave Hutchinson today confirmed that investigators believe the missing pair's bodies were in a box found in a Kingston dam during searches.

    Five men and one woman were charged with two counts of murder in relation to the case last night, and did not apply for bail when they faced court this morning.

    Friends tied up, shot and dumped in dam in metal coffin
    February 12, 20161:42pm
    http://www.news.com.au/national/quee...32c39f23ddd95b

    THEY were beaten, stabbed and tied by the ankles and wrists before being forced into a 2m-long metal toolbox, still alive.

    Mother-of-three Iuliana Triscaru and Cory Breton were then driven to a nearby dam in a suburb of Logan, south of Brisbane, where they were shot in the head and dumped in the water.

    Holes drilled in the sides helped their makeshift coffin sink to the bottom of Scrubby Creek in Kingston, from where police dredged it up yesterday, hauling it out with a crane as the stench of decomposing bodies filled the air.
    ...
    Six people appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court yesterday on two murder charges — Ngatokoona Maretti, 36, Tuhirangi-Thomas Tahiata, 24, Webbstar Latu, 31, Davy Malu Junior Taiao, 21, Stou Daniels, 21, and Trent Michael Thrupp, 22.

    Detectives allege the six are drug associates involved with methamphetamine.
    ...
    Detectives are still searching for two men, aged 32 and 25, who they want to question over the pair’s suspected murders.

    Is there any definite motive that has come out in relation to this?

    Tuhirangi-Thomas Tahiata, 25, was denied bail on Wednesday at the Brisbane Supreme Court. It’s alleged he confessed to killing the pair, whom he barely knew and had no grievance with.

    What a gruesome way to die. Alleged drug-related murders are vicious and inhuman IMO.

    Queensland bodies-in-box accused 'heard screams'

    'One of the seven accused over the Logan bodies-in-the-box murders allegedly confessed to hearing screams as he threw the victims into a dam, a court has heard.

    Tuhirangi-Thomas Tahiata, 25, was denied bail when he appeared in the Brisbane Supreme Court on Wednesday charged with the murders of Cory Breton, 28, and Iuliana Triscaru, 31.

    It's alleged he confessed to killing the pair, whom he barely knew and had no grievance with.'

    'The victims were last seen alive on January 24 this year and their bodies were found in a locked metal box in Kingston Dam 18 days later.

    Both were allegedly lured to a unit before being beaten, tied up and locked inside the metal toolbox before Tahiata arrived, the court heard.

    Tahiata has allegedly admitted hearing kicking and screaming as he loaded the box with them inside into his truck and drove it to the dam.

    The court heard he fired a warning shot into the air with his homemade gun before his co-accused Trent Michael Thrupp punched holes into the box with a claw hammer to help it sink.

    The screams got louder as they pushed the box into the water and Thrupp yelled "time to die", Tahiata allegedly told officers.

    They then went back to the dam days later and used rocks to sink the box after they found it floating on the surface, prosecutors allege.'
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all WSers.

    Suspected drug debt:

    'Police suspect a drug debt was behind the alleged murders of missing Logan pair Cory Breton and Iuliana Triscaru, who they believe were stuffed in a metal box, shot dead and dumped in a dam on the night of January 24.'

    Logan murder charges: Police suspect drug debt was behind deaths

    Good timeline here too (for current and future reference).
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all WSers.
