    Wynarka suitcase murder victim identified as Khandalyce Kiara Pearce;
    her mother Karlie Pearce-Stevenson was also violently killed

    Khandalyce Kiara Pearce **************Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson

    THE little girl whose body was found in a suitcase near Wynarka has been identified as Khandalyce Kiara Pearce, born in Alice Springs in 2006.

    Her mother Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson was also brutally murdered, and dumped in Belanglo State Forest south of Sydney.

    A joint investigation into their deaths has now been launched by SAPOL’s Major Crime Branch and the NSW Homicide Squad.

    The circumstances and place of the murders is yet to be determined, but they were last seen in late 2008 and Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s skeletal remains were found in August 2010.

    SA and NSW police today revealed that the breakthrough began on October 8 when a caller to Crime Stoppers said Khandalyce was possibly the little girl in the suitcase. The caller had not seen Khandalyce or Ms Pearce-Stevenson for some time and believed they were missing.

    Wow. I often thought of Belanglo Angel when reading about Wynarka Angel, mainly because many of us referred to the little one as "Angel".

    Belanglo Angel is believed to be from O/S due to her dental work... she was discovered in 2010 and no identification as yet

    I have a feeling that they knew about this link way before now, and it may be that they have an inkling of who is responsible, but just need evidence.

    It doesn't take all this time to compare DNA - matching up little Angel to other unsolved cases would have been the first thing they did. So there could be more at play.

    I just hope this leads somewhere and doesn't go quiet again.

    My jaw dropped when I heard this - I haven't been reading the thread and hadn't considered a link.

    So bizarre to think someone killed them, then dumped them years and hundreds of kilometres apart. I hope they are brought to justice soon.

    1137 kms apart, in almost a straight line according to google maps. I know that the police surely would have checked them out, but this makes so much sense for them to be Chantelle and Leela McDougall (eta - clearly I was wrong about that lol)

    New article just posted I'm glad there has been a breakthrough but it is very sad indeed. I hope they find out who is responsible.

    "The remains of a girl found in a suitcase in South Australia have been genetically linked to the bones of a woman found in the NSW Belanglo State Forest in 2010.

    Police believe the two bodies could be that of a mother and daughter after DNA tests linked the two major investigations, News Corp reports.

    The bones of the young girl were found in a suitcase filled with children's clothes dumped on the side of a highway near Wynarka in South Australia in June."

    Oh, I hope so! The last thing we want is two cold cases for the price of one!

    Wow, major news.

    The Belangalo case has been unsolved for 5 years though which doesn't bring comfort.

    But the new case of the little girl is more promising, what with only being dumped recently

    Wow ! I guess that explains why there were some woman's clothes in the suitcase then.
    Amazing...
