1. Main suspect in the murder of Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson, and her daughter Khandalyce is a man “already locked up in jail.”
Police have already identified a man they suspect of being responsible for the brutal double murder of Karlie Pearce-Stevenson and her daughter Khandalyce.
20-year old Karlie Jade Pearce-Stevenson, was identified as being the mother of the little girl whose bones were found alongside a highway in a suitcase near Wynarka, in South Australia.
Ms Pearce-Stevenson was identified through DNA as being “Angel” whose remains had been discovered in the Belangelo State Forest.
Fairfax Media reports that police have one main suspect, after being inundated with information and tip-offs from the public a day after they went public with their identities.
The man is in custody in a NSW jail serving a prison sentence for unrelated offences.
A police spokesman said, “Police are following a number of lines of inquiries in relation to the deaths of Karlie and Khandalyce Pearce-Stevenson.”
Meanwhile the family of Karlie have raised funds via a crowdfunding website in order to lay the mother and daughter to rest in Alice Springs. .
“On the 21st of October 2015 our family was alerted to the devastating news that our beloved Karlie Jade Stevenson and her young daughter Khandalyce Pearce, both of whom had been missing since 2009, had been confirmed by DNA to be the bodies known only as the Belangalo Angel and the Little Wynarka suitcase Angel,” a message on the OzCrowd website said.
The post said the family had spent the last six years trying to locate the mother and daughter.
“Our family is asking for assistance to help us raise the funds to bring Karlie and Khandalyce’s remains home to Alice Springs so that they can be reunited and laid to rest together with family,” the original post said.
“Help us finally bring them home and lay them to rest in peace.”
Yesterday a local government offer of the remaining funds saw the family member close the post.
“With your help this campaign was brought to people’s attention and we have now been offered some assistance from local government with costs. ”
“Together with the funds we have raised through this campaign we should now have enough to bring our angels home and give [them] the funeral and goodbyes they deserve!
2. Teenagers thought the attack was a Halloween joke.
A sword-wielding masked attacker has killed a teacher and a pupil and seriously injured two others at a school of 400 students in Trollhättan in western Sweden.
The assailant, carrying a sword and dressed in a black trench coat, mask and helmet posed for pictures with pupils shortly before the attack – who thought he was dressed up for Halloween.
A male teacher was pronounced dead at the scene, while another teacher and two pupils, boys aged 11 and 15, were found with severe injuries.
