1. 3-year-old Chloe Campbell describes her potential abductors.
Three-year-old Chloe Campbell has provided a clue for the investigation into her abduction. When speaking to family about her two-day disappearance, Chloe has reportedly used the phrase “daddy’s friends”.
Detective Inspector Bruce McNab told The Courier-Mail that she had given the police “information (they) can use” to continue the investigation.
However, while Chloe has used these words while talking to family, she did not use the same phrase when talking to police – and so the authorities are still considering a number of angles.
Yesterday, it was suggested that the toddler’s snatching may have been involved in a threat against her father. Sources revealed that a threat was made against Chloe’s father, Garth Campbell, two months ago.
A family friend, Melissa Small, told the Sunday Mail: “They’ve done this to scare Garth.”
Another source suggested that a friend of the family must have been involved in the abduction as no one else would have known that Chloe was not sleeping in her room the night she was taken.
The three-year-old went missing on Thursday morning from her family’s lounge room where she had been sleeping with her siblings. Chloe was found in a showground across the road from her home in Queensland on Saturday morning.
2. The sister of Reeva Steenkamp speaks out.
The sister of Reeva Steenkamp, Simone, has given an exclusive interview to The Mail on Sunday, in which she calls Oscar Pistorius a “disgusting liar”.
Simone Steenkamp, 48, told the paper, “He is trying to convince the court that they were really close and that he cared for her. It’s not true. He is a disgusting liar.”
She also described seeing him in court, saying that, “‘… he [was sitting] in the dock, smirking. He killed my sister and yet he still seems to be enjoying his celebrity status.”
The 27-year-old Pistorious was cross-examined in the witness-box last week. The paralympian denies deliberately killing 29-year-old Reeva on Valentine’s Day last year, and maintains that he was shooting at what he suspected was an intruder.
3. The MH370 black box battery may be dead.
