As the town of Leeton struggles to come to terms with the murder of Stephanie Scott, further details have emerged about her accused killer Vincent Stanford — and the search for the young teacher’s body continues.
Police divers have seized a laptop from a canal only a few kilometres from where Stephanie Scott’s car was dumped.
They have also located another vehicle in relation to the investigation. It is confirmed Vincent Stanford — the man accused of Ms Scott’s murder — was in possession of the vehicle.
Despite having seized the vehicle, authorities are making a second appeal to the public for information from anyone who saw the white Toyota Hilux space cab traveling in or around Leeton in recent days.
Police could not confirm at this point whether the laptop is linked to the investigation.
The search is continuing with multiple personnel on the case from across the state, including volunteers, SES members, divers, forensic analysts, detectives and trail bikes to arrive this afternoon.
“What we need we are getting, and it’s on a needs basis,” a police spokesperson told the media.
