    Anthony Jones's disappearance started Missing Persons Week, but truth still eludes his family

    July 28, 2013

    THE secrets of his death are buried somewhere in Queensland while his killer has walked among us for the past 30 years.
    But the family of Anthony Jones, whose tenacity and relentless search for the truth sparked the creation of National Missing Persons week, say they will get their man.

    Tomorrow marks the 25th anniversary for Missing Persons Week and an example of what desperation looks like when a loved one goes missing.

    "Kevin Wright and John Eastaughffe were friends who grew up together in Hughenden, and three women have made allegations linking the pair to Mr Jones' disappearance.

    Mr Wright's ex-partner Natalie Parker told 60 Minutes the men shared a close bond.

    "I noticed that Kevin to me, his behaviour was different when Johnny was around," Ms Parker said.

    "He said Johnny and I have done things together that no-one will ever know about."

    Ms Parker said Mr Wright allegedly confessed three times in their 18-year relationship to disposing of a human body.

    She claimed Mr Wright told her a truck driver had died and he helped dispose of the body.

    "I believe they put the body into the burning pits and set it on fire," Ms Parker said. "
