    Missing teen Megan 'likely murdered'

    May 3, 2011

    The disappearance of Canberra teenager Megan Mulquinney almost 30 years ago remains a mystery, but an ACT coroner has found it is extremely likely she was murdered.

    Ms Mulquinney, 17, went missing in July 1984 after finishing work at Woden Plaza in Canberra's south.

    Police never found a body but two men who were questioned over the disappearance remain people of interest.

    Prime suspect in long-running Canberra missing persons case 'did not act alone'

    Prime suspect Paul Vincent Phillips died in April. Police think there are accomplices. As with other cases police announce it close to a significant date. It will be 34 years since she disappeared on Saturday in 2 days time.

    "Police said a number of people had given them fresh information about the disappearance of Megan Mulquiney, since serial sex offender Paul Vincent Phillips died in April."

    "Almost 34 years later to the day, ACT police have announced they do not believe Phillips acted alone.

    A 2009 inquest into Ms Mulquiney's disappearance determined it was extremely likely she was murdered by a person or persons."

    "His victims would often appear young, have child-like features, they were petite in build … and would wear their shoulder-length hair out.

    "This description matches that of Megan."
