1. Police launch manhunt after finding body in a barrel after searching for a missing teenage girl.
On Wednesday afternoon around 1.30pm officers were investigating a missing person in Logan, south of Brisbane, when an occupant fled the Buccan address in the black ute with a barrel loaded on the tray.
According to news.com.au, police were searching for 16-year-old Larissa Beilby, who went missing 10 days ago. Family and friends haven’t spoken to her since June 18 and police appealed for help finding her earlier this week.
The ute was tracked to a mobile home park in the Gold Coast suburb of Stapylton, approximately 20 minutes away. According to police, they searched the ute and discovered the badly decomposed body in the barrel. The man reportedly had left in another vehicle.
