The investigation into the death of 12-year old Tiah continues.
The last time Tiahleigh Palmer was seen was October 30.
She was at McDonalds on her way to her high school, Marsden State High in Logan. The year seven student had been dropped off by her foster carer and was wearing her uniform and carrying her pink backpack she took to school.
It was just after 8am.
Six days later the schoolgirl’s body was discovered on the banks of the Pimpama River on the northern Gold Coast.
In the time between that her family and police had been frantically searching but no public alert was made until the day she was found dead.
Tiah, as she was known was found without her uniform or backpack, murdered and floating in the Pimpama River.
Nine days after she was last seen police have now revealed that they have turned to the databases of known child sex offenders in the hunt for her murderer.
News Limited reports that police are scrolling through the Australian National Child Offender Register in a search for potential suspects in the area with fears she was taken by a child predator.
