    Cold case detectives make arrest in murder of teen after four decades


    Seventeen-year-old Bronwynne Richardson was attacked and dragged into a car on 12 October, 1973, with her body found two days later in a lagoon off the Murray River.

    Detectives arrested 61-year-old Colin Michael Newey in Murray Bridge, South Australia, yesterday and it is expected that he will be formally charged when extradited to New South Wales this afternoon.

    No bail bid for Bronwynne's alleged killer



    The man accused of raping and murdering teen beauty queen Bronwynne Richardson will remain behind bars after his case was mentioned in a Sydney court.

    Colin Michael Newey did not come up from the cells at Central Local Court on Friday and did not apply for bail.

    "Given the nature of the charge, bail is refused," Magistrate Les Mabbutt said.


    It is the oldest unsolved murder case in NSW to result in an arrest.

    It turns out to be a family member who has been charged - a second cousin of Bronwynne's :facepalm: The family and town are stunned apparently.

    OMG! How devastating for the parents, they've probably interacted with him over the years.

    His conscience must have got to him though because he made an anonymous call to police back in 1989 that he was present at the scene but no one followed the call up until the coroner's inquest all these years later. Very interesting turn of events.

    Beauty queen's alleged murderer will return to home town after bail

    A man accused of kidnapping, raping and murdering a teen beauty queen more than four decades ago has been released on bail.

    In granting him bail at the Supreme Court on Thursday, Justice Richard Button said "there is a real dispute that the crown can prove the accused was the person or one of the persons who committed those actions".
