rbbm. Very lengthy article.. Chilling details revealed in suspected cold case murder of Joanne Chatfield POLICE Joe Chatfield. ''Joanne Chatfield had been gone eight weeks by the time her University Entrance results arrived at her Mangere Bridge home in south Auckland. The envelope sat unopened on her bed in a room that her mother Claire left untouched until she moved house a decade ago. In many ways, the room was Joe, with its line of stuffed toys sitting on a pretty floral bedspread a jarring contrast to the black walls above that were crowded with posters: anarchy, Amnesty and anti-vivisection. Here lived the kind little girl, the feisty and independent punk rocker, the talented but conflicted young woman who wanted to change the world. Perhaps she would have, but Joe Chatfield never got the chance. She's been gone 30 years now, and that envelope is unopened still. "If I opened it," says Claire, "I'd be admitting she is dead." ''Now, in response to North & South's inquiries, police have renewed their offer of a $50,000 reward in the case, and revealed disturbing new information about what happened at the concert she attended at the Auckland University Students' Association building on the night that she was last seen, 19 November 1988. Police have discovered a woman was kidnapped at knifepoint from the gig, taken 200-300m away into bush, and raped. The information has not been made public before now because of the woman's fragile mental health. It was the most significant new lead uncovered during a reinvestigation of the case that began in late 2005 and ran for more than two years.''
