    Police have charged a couple with murder and torture after discovering a body in a shallow grave in a forest in Beerburrum, north of Brisbane.

    '28-year-old missing woman Tia Landers suffered a violent death after voluntarily going to the Brighton home of de facto couple John Edward Harris and Linda Eileen Appleton, police allege.

    Landers was last seen on June 16 in the Deception bay and Redcliffe area.'

    Daily Mail story is talking about gangs, 'Bonnie and Clyde' and much more.

    I notice that she seemed quite affectionate in her words for another man (not her gang-member boyfriend). And there was also a comment about how was she to know that someone was someone's wife.

    Some very harrowing details about the torture of Tia have been released. Two of her male friends are alleged to have been forced to watch as well, at gunpoint. I feel so sorry for her children. I hope family can break the news to them gently, in the least painful way, before they hear it from someone else.

    It is very hard to think how that could be done though. It's just so awful to think about them hearing this. My thoughts are with them.

    I hope whoever did this to Tia is locked away and never, ever sees the light of day.

    Me too, zwiebel. Those poor children. :(
    So, so horrible. They made sure that Tia couldn't run, and even stopped for a little 'refresher' part way through their horrendous attack! And was this all in retribution because she ran from a police raid at that house in May? Was she thought to have drawn the police there?


    "She failed to appear in court in May as Mr Bartz's co-accused, over a violent Brisbane home invasion on Australia Day, Newscorp reported."

    This facebook, so sad, you can see Tia getting so thin, so wasted. Poor woman, how did she fall so far without help?

    Her sometime boyfriend is part of the Angry Gang in jail so those two are in real trouble. Tia was no angel obviously but what a horrible way to go.

    I see Tia's body was found dumped off the same road where Daniel Morcombe's killer Cowan took him to....

    THAT is too weird! :scared:
    Did they think that it would be a long time before anyone went down that road again, so it was a good dumping ground?! Can't be a coincidence .... can it? :what:

    "Jamie also wants to set the record straight after Tia was described as a ‘gangster’s girlfriend’ in the press.

    Of criminal Wade Bartz, who Tia was romantically linked to, Jamie said: ‘They are not in a relationship.’

    She explained that Wade is definitely not the father of any of Tia’s four children and that the pair only met ‘two years ago’."

    This is just horrific! I'd not even heard of it before this thread.
    It's so messed up! Those poor kiddies and her family :(

    Here is an early report from when Tia was still missing. I can't help feeling police knew straight away something bad had happened her. I wonder what it was that made them think that?

    Just because she was a mum who always stayed in contact with family, or did police know some reason someone might have wanted to harm her?

    'Ms Landers was sighted entering a business on Gateway Motorway, Nudgee on June 16 and was wearing a blue top and white shorts at the time.'

    The alleged killers held two men with Tia at gunpoint, let them witness her murder and then (I'm presuming) let them go.

    So they must have been confident those witnesses wouldn't talk then?
