    Missing man: Suspect taunts police
    "Two weeks ago, Lance John Murphy walked out of a Warkworth petrol station, got into his red Mazda and drove off. He has not been seen since.

    The 56-year-old was caught on camera at 6.36pm on November 21. Five days later, police searching for Mr Murphy found his Mazda at a property less then 2km from where this photo was taken.

    Police ramped up the investigation into Mr Murphy's disappearance when his blood was found through his car."

    It is really unfortunate that Mr. Gunbie, in the above-stated article, did not serve the entire 22 month prison sentence. He would still be in prison and LM would still be alive. He is missing, the car has his blood in it, and this does not end well IMO.

    The Herald can reveal that Mr Murphy's body was found in a field at a rural property near Wellsford over the weekend.
    His body was not hidden.
    The hunt for a second man believed to be connected to Mr Murphy's disappearance is ongoing.


    RIP Lance.

    Wow. Hadn't heard of this. Self defence my arse. I wonder why the daughter allegedly helped to cover it up. My initial thought was domestic abuse. Murphy might have privately been a violent man and members of his family or close friends finally killed him to prevent more violence. However, that doesn't condone his murder, no matter the reason. What other reasons are likely? Financial? A debt owed or criminal activity he was planning to report?

    What would make a friend of 30 years finally turn on someone?
