    Karen Ristevski: Police refuse to say if they have suspects in missing person case



    July 27 2016

    Melbourne police refused to reveal if they had any suspects in the case of missing woman Karen Risteveski as they stepped up efforts to find her.

    Detectives have set up an information caravan in her home suburb of Avondale Heights, in Melbourne's north-west and mounted police have searched parklands near her home.

    Ms Ristevski has not used her mobile phone or bank accounts, or made contact with friends or family since June 29.



    HUMAN REMAINS IDENTIFIED AT MOUNT MACEDON

    February 21, 2017

    Police can confirm the human remains found at Mount Macedon yesterday are that of missing Avondale Heights, woman Karen Ristevski.

    Investigators received the results following forensic testing this afternoon.

    Karen was last seen at her home address on Oakley Drive in Avondale Heights at about 10am on 29 June last year.

    Her remains were located by a member of the public in bushland off Loch Road at Mount Macedon about 12.30pm yesterday.

    Police conducted a line search at the scene today and are keen to speak to anyone that may have seen any suspicious activity in that area.

    Missing Persons Squad detectives are appealing for anyone that may have been walking along the dirt track off Loch Road or anyone that may have seen any vehicles to contact them.

    Investigators are also hoping to speak to anyone that may have been at Mount Macedon any time from June last year and took photos or any video footage in the area.

    Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.


    Karen Ristevski: Husband Borce 'a suspect' as police issue strong message to killer

    June 16, 2017

    The husband of Karen Ristevski is a suspect in the ongoing homicide investigation as detectives implore her suspected killer to come forward.

    “The person who has done this has a story to tell. They only get one chance to tell it. I encourage them, if they are so inclined, tell it now,” Inspector Tim Day said in an ominous message for her suspected killer today.

    [...]

    New CCTV is believed to show Ms Ristevski’s Mercedes-Benz SLK coupe travelling north-west along the Old-Calder Highway through Diggers Rest shortly after 11am on June 29 last year – the same day she went missing.

    [...]

    Insp. Day also revealed her husband Borce Ristevski “remains a suspect” in the year-long investigation, adding Mr Ristevski had not been shown the vision and was likely only viewing it today.

    [...]

    Mr Ristevski, 53, has vehemently denied any involvement in his wife's disappearance and murder.

    Yep .....

    But Mr Ristevski did admit to the Herald Sun that after the Bella Bleu shop in Broadmeadows closed in February last year the shopping centre had put a caveat on the Ristevski’s $1.1 million home in Oakley Drive, Avondale Heights, due to a dispute over money owed.
    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law...777340863339f3


    Paperwork declaring Mr Ristevski had taken over from his wife as the sole director of Warrant Brands, which is linked to her Bella Bleu fashion label, was filed with the Australian Securities & Investments Commission in March.

    Police have confirmed Ms Ristevski's husband Borce is the main suspect in the murder, but the father has vehemently denied any involvement.
    In March 2016, Mr Ristevski travelled to South East Asia to buy clothes for the family's clothing boutique and met a man through a mutual friend.

    Hmmm not liking this new anonymous witness. 100% agree that this is information that police should know, but it sounds like it was just a throw away comment. And where was the "good place" - was it a joke where if we saw it in context we'd all laugh or were they in forest area. Just pointing out that context plays a role. Reason why i dont like the comments in the media is that I worry BRs lawyer will say something about an unfair trial etc and it will somehow harm the case.

    It is possible that there is another witness to the conversation, as there seems to be a third person (if not more) present. The witness apparently took the photo of Borce and a blurred out person.

    It is also possible that this is (quietly) police-sanctioned material, as police know about the comment, know about the witness, and have been going to very public lengths to put pressure on Borce just lately. imo

    They may very well prefer that Borce rocks up to the police station with his top criminal lawyer and hands himself in .. like Gable Tostee did, and others as well. Sometimes these types of actions help a perp in the sentencing phase of their trial. Remorse, accepting a trial, signs of a chance for rehabilitation, possible home detention instead of jail prior to trial, (reducing sentence), blah, blah, blah ......

    Yes, I did also think that this may be a police led thing. Feeding more and more little bits to be Media to smoke him out.

    I don't find this witness story all that credible. And even if it is, and Borce planned this murder, he really needs to hang up his planning hat. That said, I am interested in who the mutual friend is. This person has sought media attention for a reason, he might be motivated in a similar way to the cyclist or he might have a more interesting reason!

    That's a good point.

    Also interesting this story has come out while Sarah is perhaps still in Vietnam.

    Sorry for late response tgy. I tried replying last night but my pc was causing me grief so I gave up ugh!!

    Do you think so? I think the question could be considered rather personal and offensive and yes, even deserve the death stare in some cases. I don't think you'd find many, if any, men asking another man if he's married simply because he's hitting on women in a nightclub. What I could see though, is, a man asking another man if he's married if a woman who he's interested in, is paying more attention to the other man. That, I can see very clearly. Or, the man asking the question is interested in the other man on a romantic level and wants to know if he's single! I guess we would need to know more about how the conversation took place because as decscimp has already pointed out, (thank you decsimp) context plays a role. All MOO

    I agree we need to know more and the context all so important.

    Assuming the witness is speaking about their first meeting and all this was said in South East Asia.

    I would like to hear more about the second meeting. When and where did that take place?

    Rather amazing after more than a year, the mention of two key witnesses in one week.

    I am still wondering why it took the police so long to catch up with the witness that saw the merc up at Mt Macedon in the last week of June 2016?

    I too would like to know more about this mutual friend. Strange that he was not referred to as a 'mutual business acquaintance'. Wonder if there are dated receipts for the clothes. I thought it was KR who made the business trips.

    Something's not sitting right.

    A struggling business and an overseas junket? Surely it would make better business sense to order online from regular suppliers? Perhaps someone with knowledge of the trade could clarify?

    And yes, context of BR's remark is important.

    Geez, the number of times we've been driving through a forested area and I've said things like 'Down that valley with all those ferns would be a good place to get rid of someone.'
    But then again, my OH knows I'm a WSer and just sighs

    And yet another twist ...... oh boy, what's coming next, the mind boggles ...... um, this is the first time anyone's actually said publicly that BR is of, err, questionable character, isn't it? 🤔
