Hmmmm.....very hard to find any info online about the guy they named. Either he's laying super low on the internet, or they mispronounced his name.......
So in the video, they're saying Sam was murdered at the suspect's house and that he was a 'known associate' of Sam's :facepalm:
There is a family in Brisbane by that name. Not a common one. Weird spelling.
I've found a family in Brisbane but the way it's spelt suggests a mispronunciation by the newsreader...maybe he got and 'i' and an 'a' the wrong way round? We've only heard one person say it......
This is so sad and should never have happened. :cry: These young guys get caught up with psychopaths and drugs, Jamie Gao, was another one.
Just a little personal story to share of my son's experience (btw, I only knew about all of this just before he moved out and back to Brisbane).
My son, who's in his 20s, moved into a share house in St Peters after the break up with his gf (they came to Sydney from Bris shortly before the breakup). He found the ad in Gumtree and met the young guy, a friendly surfer dude, only a year or 2 older than him. Altogether there were 5 guys living there.
Anyway, within a week my son was given notice that he would have to attend court to explain why this surfer dude had $20,000 cash in his room! In the previous week, the police did a spot check. I found this guy's fb (son had added him) and he'd been celebrating weeks before the check that he was off probation, for what I don't know but I can guess. All the housemates had to prove they paid cash rent to him, and my son had just moved in! :facepalm:
He later told me they were real potheads and was glad to be out. So $20,000 cash sitting in his room for rent?!! Why didn't he pay the landlord?! Of course, it wasn't true, but this young dude was mixed up in something serious. I hope he sorted his life out. It's so easy to be caught in tragic circumstances because it's too tempting to make big money for little effort! These young guys are swimming with the sharks.
The police mentioned he was mixed up with unsavoury characters so I think we're safe with our assumptions. Samuel's poor parents. Exactly Karinna, what a world.And i'm not saying this is what Samuel was doing, but it could well be. Poor guy if that's what happened to him. What a world,
Look on FB 7 News Brisbane page. They have the footage naming him and some of his friends or people he knows are shocked.
