We spike to count detectives ex detectives and we compile all the information. I'm put it together in book form and when you put a book together is that obviously people by did sell well became a bestseller uh and a lot of people code and this is what the police get and i still get. There was a lot of conspiracy theorists. <hes> walk if this happened what if if that happened i think my uncle had something to do with it but they couldn't back it up. None of them quebec it up and we got quite tired of it so you can imagine what the place a lot and night constantly get. This and i have to follow this up. I just can't dismiss that one. Lady nine is angela thoughts in the certainly a book she wasn't nine. She is now past. She code alan and said that i think my father-in-law might have something to do with this. Because the purse of the husband i was married to and i'm not me before. I know he was sexually abused. We believe or allegedly by the father which was harry phipps that he did hang out pound nuts. She read the book. The man of the beach <music> tainted giant by a pound. Now that was a pivotal pace commissioning nodding sixty six and it has been ever since to handle a pound nut tour charge highly pound night was huge amount of money annoying sixty six or no i was i use all the tone if always sore pound though that was a while fat so you can imagine jain getting pound doesn't matter how mature she is. It's a wow factor. Now you had had her undivided attention. You have the children's undivided attention who was wealthy enough to do that. She put one together and cold allen witty cup. They did fit the description he didn't live too far from cali reserved and he handled the pound notes and she believes who some was sexually abused abused boy to get just that by six. You have an alleged pedophile that fits the description that hands out pound knocks. The pound not was the clincher alan cohen said you're sitting down you believe up. Listen to this. It said shouted spawn. I needed gallon see her. I needed to do some reference checks on equipped scored. She wasn't crazy person. I'd spike to on the phone. I went to see and as coincidence that she needed about twenty kilometers up the road from where eilly from cooling gathering queensland. I met her around about two hours or recorded the interview. I found a <hes> very reliable and trustworthy. I referenced chicks. She was quite happy for me to do that. She worked in the <hes> correctional services facilities. He's in queensland. She was a clinical nurse and she don't love me hall with sexual predators and people that had suffered prison they might so that suffered it from sexual abuse. It's a high percentage of tons that a person that is being sexually abused as a child quite a few of them end up in prison on on drug abuse prescription medicine and kraan so she knew their attributes and personalities to do with child sexual abuse so i spoke to the hanes to correctional facilities that she was at absolutely exemplary. Sorry you make comments regarding this slightly abuse. I got it in written reference schick. She'll be in the next book and they are glowing. Uh she's honest reliable trustworthy intelligent. I went from there. She gave me nines. I needed to talk to so who ex husband. I tried to talk to him. He never got back to me. I found out that the husband had a son. I finally got not to speak to him. He said dad now that you've been trying to coach. You know he was sexually abused and so the some believed that hey introduce me to hide because we sexually abused people of course a high percentage of them do not like talking about sexual abuse. We are talking about a right of a child sodomization of child. When we say sexual abuse we painted i for it sounds nicer than saying i child. I nine ten years old well. He's right by an adult that has now go to different connotation. That's what happened to him. From tree to the i twelve he was allegedly raped and sorta lines bought his own father yearly house morning she she can wonder why he doesn't want to talk to me or anybody else about uh uh i eventually did get to meet him. I mean because of an introduction apiece sun though is based on holiday for the right reasons i made him you walked away from that as he was honest reliable and telling the truth what he talked about was he's father he had setina setina penchant for dressing up in san which is now corroborated that he would come into a usa bedroom early as morning and sixty abusing either many the ease talked about that used to hang out pound nights. He was very very wealthy. Person that is true and correct that he did fit description of the main same playing beach with children that is true incorrect because that has been corroborated by many people that were to the harris's erases constantly factory so these things were starting to build and it was there but we really have something i believe leave as many others believed perpetrated could not have leapt from colleague reserve satistics now well what site where the president's mates the child and where the predator leagues hard to sink egypt is within. I columbia aware. I mike the child in the first place. These casey's no different because the police sit at that time has ever seen having a vehicle or transporting vehicle. It's highly unlikely that leaves one outcome. The person listened must've lived within a close radius of color reserve considering. You've got the beach on one side. We can rule that out so let store a half circle of roughly kilometer or less and we now list nabokov tom factor he must have lived in that area. We didn't know that a sixty six what haydn told me with startling key guide me nines and i folk destroy. I wanted to see that. I could back up what he was sign. I spoke to ex people at the harry phibbs castaways factory you like the cousins despite to in moore's all of them knew about the sexual fantasies or sam fantasy they had inklings that haydn phipps six we abused as a child and harring tips on the outside was a wealthy well well respected connect businessman but on he had a dockside. He's an alleged hit a foil and oldest research and i had to backing up uncorroborated was i sent it to the place place that thanh as mentioned previously we save simony. Kohl's regarding this war saga than anybody else may have to follow so you gotta have something substantial substantial. We believe we did however texas. I was dealing with. I was not happy he city followed up on a few things they did not and it was that time that i decided to hire a private investigator also going back to the detective. This is thought he would ma- hide or try to make hide and angel at the first two points of coal to see if my are reliable reliable and trustworthy honest he did not do that now. Maybe he has his reasons. Maybe the budget says no. You can't go to queensland slane to make these two. We've got budget constraints fair enough. Maybe has a whole lot of other work to be done and because he received seventy coz like that multiple back then which ever was i wasn't happy with it. I continued with. I hired a private investigator that was twelve vs as a detective in the police force two years of that. He was in my jacome by reference. Check him through past detectives current detectives and people in the business community who is the best tried investigator in seattle straight nine. Bill highs came up all all the time. He doesn't suffer fools easily. He get strike to the point. I visited him. He wanted to see what i had the dossier. He asked if it was all corroborated. I've say yes any though eyebrows raised 'cause. He's heard about this before. He said i'll take it away for a few weeks doll rate. He was going on holidays an east hit. I'll tell you if i think this has lakes and he called me during these holidays is and he said might when we get back i need to see you. This is the best of ever come across from their hiring. A private investigator vista guida symbolizing it might have put the other detectives within sight paul off mighty how dare you you know i might have looked me skype. You want a guy down this pound. You're not getting any help from us. We'll i wasn't getting any help from in the first place however they have have been raisins and on quite sure abella reasons the ohi interviewed angela that was the point of coal a guy and he had to meet her. He had some eight haydn he interview tied and it's been recorded statement analysis x. cooks listen to it from holland and also from australia mc heightened fits. He's definitely telling the truth the bad he's sexual abuse and seeing the children in his backyard that die and quite a few other things did happen so from the fuel went on and continued to interview and continue in utah uncover. We put the dossier together a guy we take up a meeting with niger crime by we're going mm to reopen it and look at harry phipps but a gyn. We don't think i did kara job so because of that and we weren't happy with him again and we just felt that they didn't quite believe us for whatever reason so we took this further. We went to the police minister minister. We went to the premier of south australia. We went through a federal member of politics in canberra and the news media we went through today to not on current affairs and i were fantastic and have been epic scenes dyke see what we saw. Also we got a meeting would be exit of might. Did you crime now. Retired can highly respected. We sat down with him. He'd read the doc- i he said to us. These these the advanced thing i've ever seen regarding beaumont types. I think you're onto something he gave me a background of the place and how they work doc basically explaining really. They have a lot of work on saw. It's for us to keep pushing all sides muslim matters who was the loss reminding detective law to die that mic mr by malt died when he came into the playstation gloag to report. He's childr- dreux missing. He said to me. This is the best offer ever seen in the last forty to fifty s regarding the by march case ace. I think you're onto it. He said to me at that time and i still in contact with boston is that albaladejo was al believe back then i and has been ever since the shooter highly. Luckily did not get in the car. Must personal belief is the perpetrator must be a very reclosed proximity to kelly resute. Harry fits needs in one hundred ninety maters of direct saw colleague reserves and he fits the description any hands out a pound months and he's alleged pedophile and he's got a sexual fetish. You just put that together crews place. Whose door would you be knocking on. Must madden said the same thing. If i knew sixty six would obtained hanging down his door. I said mustard no you would not have if you tried that you would have been demoted to copper for on the bait heist forth. That's not how south australia were designing sixty six and you're accusing a well standing businessman in the community. It's it's like pointing a finger. At the clergy nineteen sixty six you didn't have a hulk in hill and neither did heightened phipps if he talked about his abuse nodding sixty six in my got put into a psychiatric time these people these well heeled people weren't capable of such a heinous car with not capable of sexual abuse inside. That's what they will say well. He would have been looked at nodding sixty six now. He wouldn have jimmy. Savile wasn't looked at ralph harrison. Look that robert hughes from high dad. He was sexually abusing that shaw on the best view show in australia in the nineteen eighties and hey wasn't looked at these sorts of pay didn't do it harold phipps therefore would not we'll have been that haydn phipps was on a hiding to nothing we took this further until the media dot involved heavily and including radio jocks and federal members and things started to really hate and i started to look at harry phipps in much more detail. Oh so that's where we are. We sat in men what we uncovered. Everything in that book has been corroborated. It's not make believe it's not making up stories stories. It's not we spoke thinking it is true and correct it has to be because the sentence man harry phibbs has now been elevated to a person of interest by majorcan and their east is what does that mean i spiked current detectives in south struggle and i've spoken to next to take to being a curse that interest means bid got substantial amount of circumstantial evidence that could possibly link him to the disappearance of the by much shooting in fact harry is more circumstantial evidence linking him than the other five suspects combined. He's got i have a twelve and it seemed the next book who took the by one shooter perfectly out for twelve. You talked any detective and i've spoken to quite the few if you are looking to better investigation hammy piece circumstantial evidence. Would you need to really raise your eyebrows all but non said anything above three you would really get off this us again with herring phipps. There's twelve corroborated pieces awesome circumstantial evidence that is in itself a real. I us a nice paper. The twelve paces of circumstantial related to either twelve are very important to this case these pieces of circumstantial evidence really you put together eta and again. I'll reiterate occurs could not have leapt fast from cali reserved. We go back to what happened. Kelly reserved that die and my clues. The thing missed for over four to five bic lights they there. We just really didn't realize that the right in front of us all this time and we sort of go wow you'll correct.

Glendale was packed that dyke leno was always pat on a holiday was a school holiday was a scorching effect wanes in summer. If you have a look at photos of kali reserved you can on the website and you do book is packed. I non hose down the base down. Thousands of screaming keeps running around color reserved. If they got into a car he would drive out of town out of the area and also the traffic was heavy yelling at a pound then. Why in the heck would you end up back at wins.

Capital of strata is you'd guy to alike one so i think you i eat doesn't he comes back to cali resolvable back back to leno did shitty right. He has two packs so dan full time fact that blows out he could not have done that within twenty to twenty five minutes so it means the person must have lived very close bought and this is where the time factor works perfectly if you walk from where the children applying to china shakes and a very slight pice which i have done a grant beaumont pice a four year old price and you white white i waited for roughly about three four minutes then i walk directly to a harry fits lips and you look from cali reserved straight up gusta street and you can see he's house on the corner and a big church in the middle again in aerial view show you that i walked there. I y to the guy because this is way giant clicks and money and then i'll walk directly down wins news team hundred meters.

She bought five past one pie two large bottles of fizzy drink and six finger bones that is surely enough for three keys or or even nancy that is for fallen for six people. She is honest enough. She returns to the phillips house allegedly allegedly and of course that was the last time i was saying i was saying it winds was bakery but from there they were not again sing getting talk and these guys hand-in-hand hide the phipps was interviewed by myself and mr bill hives <hes>. I sold the children coming to my backyard around much talk now hell. That's a lucky guess i couldn't see any other taunt but you sit around lunch and that fits perfectly saw the clues that obeying we the scribes fifty years but we haven't dissect it the number one bary's. I have asked current. Detectives retied detectives awesome awesome media personalities that are very involved in this case waiting. Jain received pound not from the man. All of the sick colleague reserve an effect. If you ask most people that is science that is not true she did not receive. We see the pound nutty color visit that opens up a pandora's box. Where in the heck did she receive in such a short period of time. Aw there is really only one alternative. The individual must have beeped very close to kelly reserve and we geographic profiling that we have to diet f- fingertips which we didn't have sixty six you start using this geographic profiling calling a neutral half circle and then you narrow down who fix description whose mile who fits the description who fits the i tried phase three barrels damn who hands out pound notes on regular occasion that really narrows it down. You really ought to get eh one or two miles. Stuart then went over in more detail. What heightened fibs alleged. Hey sore on the day. The beaumont children disappeared. They walked in the back of the house would just true harry. Phibbs house is on the corner of sussex and augusta straight. It's a huge chanson pool hind said he was at the back and he was smoking a few dollars dowries cigarettes today standings but everybody smoked it was nice such as my calming unhealthy daunting sixties and he said bay street children coming aiming to backyard he said i looked at bit lost he asked him what are they doing here. A nice at all we're looking for bus. Stop and in a hurry and i walked in through the back door that screen was open and city never sold them again having heavy night out with the children he should firstly all their head cops really design and if you have a lucrative fido up you can see the behavior is actually nearly identical but he did not know what i would doing me now. Let's tighten analysis excludes. They would say that comes across triple because if somebody's lying china might might or embellished the story in this case eight widely mallard though didn't think not children are bosque. I see what happened to the children. You said i don not i su- dad lighting up the back of the cow with three to four surf taught blind bags putting the back of the car and drive off that's glass but see d do not put one and one together over the years or even month off to its and he hit nine surely because he said well obviously something happened to the caves but he said to your father would be involved. He said you know you you. We really stretching it here and he sort of moved onto another subject now. This is where it gets interesting. Because where did he get that stipe type analysis experts from overseas and also studied said he's hiding something. He's not telling the whole truth right them. Mm sit and on the newly authentic comments. He's signing signed much and then he hides. He's telling the truth to point then he clams up shopping happen something eisold that he's not telling us about when i'll be haydn end bill highs again i he will only go to a certain point and then he stops and that's when steve akron strive is leading lie detection expert stated it. There is definitely something bad. He is telling the truth about these abuses telling the truth about the sentence. He's telling the truth about the pound not only something that happened to you you that he does not want to talk about a tool so that's where we have to weed heightened the edge pasta by the way and he passed away back to you yeah then asked stewart about the allegations of sexual abuse made against harry phillips in the years after the beaumont children disappeared what was van we channel seven getting involved and this is blowing up and why the place in the outback bowl is other people have come forward to wayne particular. I'll talk about one that the highs in contact with still is she was allegedly sexually abused by harry harry phipps across the castelo factory where she used to the back in the nineteen seventies she is being listened to and filmed against titan analysis experts being australia have saying that filming and a comeback and say this lady was highly likely sixty the abused by mystery fees so you do have weakened suicide alleged leaving in one hundred ninety meters the rent view hugh kelly resumed daunting six stewart was unable to go into the details of the second allegation due to legal reasons he then spoke about how how things were different in nineteen sixty six who is an alleged pedophile i or who is on the pedophile listing nodding sixty six i didn't have i had pickpockets duty albeit. I certainly didn't have harry fix and i certainly didn't have the clergy certainly didn't have a rough harris and you know that down. Just stand dan you would go to harry fixes health. If it happened to die how with with that in mind it changes. The dynamics sued the case. This is why harry phipps and people like harry. Phibbs are being looked at to di. Di weren't being looked at ten years ago twenty years ago. It's only now the me too movement hobby weinstein era and of course the inquiry into child sexual abuse that was dotted julia gillard that unleashed a-plus stora of people the chew with a highly respected in the community and yet at been abusing from many years pointing case with author readers dial who is a priest and there's ivy fifty counts of sexual abuse and yet i just moved him from one diocese to another they all knew about uh and it's a sign the nineteen sixties some people knew for the had inklings that harry phipps was sexually abusing however if they stop they hit up nineteen sixty day would have been shot down stuart then took us over the story of when he visited harry fixes. This is waldo and what he saw during that visit. I was following up with a lot of lay's one of them. I got to talk to harry's second walk harry carey twice. He's suave pasta why he ended up <hes> advertising for a house by i spoke to people originally hard this house might <hes>. She clogged that edge. She got the job and she became harry. Phipps house. I i cook a cleaner and saiful boo. She ended up marrying harry phillips and hit to work nights. She used to work at a gavan school governor factory. She said were actually she's chop up the jackpot and she sit around down to see her on the parade. Saints are doing some were looking into harry fixes background street with castello in these banks successful businessman. I mean i go down to see her but i did side of what that looked is bain rumors <hes> i'm talking about his father having something by shooter and that he was sexually abused and i could see tunes berry agitated but what may at that time without skipping debate she saw buying lying on you got something to do with all say john ratcliffe and christie golden straight off the time. These are the two kids that were adopted at satellite oval ignoring things sip t. three and i would never seen a guy and i just thought it was very strange that this lady just straight off the time. I didn't even think about it. At two in. I said look. I think i look has he's. I'm problems and he's probably picking it up just to feel more at ease and she did. I ended up going down. She sat down with basement and the advisement was very cool and a lot of the paraphernalia. There was all traces of the old bottle brown suitcases. It was books slight or amendment eaten. Wishy jay was there. I mean who didn't read that. In the ninety sixties. Everything was very pristine beautifully kits and they are on the <hes> one of the bookshelves. Who is this what age and i looked at that and i i thought how giant had hers we went. Watch summit was bide. Some of that was what the actual place it was. Watch it was by and that's why if the place site was wide. This is bites. Public hers has nothing to do it anyway. I called alma whitaker who work with i will end the sentiment and he said no. It was a color somewhat ease up. What was that because doing down by itself. It didn't make sense. I asked the lady cannot come back. I need to look at something at that time she got frigid cold had prayed to warn hood and so i wasn't baud loyd back but her friend was there and i said i need to have a look good something down in the vice and foolish for me on pointed to curse and she said to me nine. I bought that option for few guys again. Let's see well if that's the case whoa he's doing down here. If you're any borders knock shop shaw at that time. She said you have to leave and her friends it yes off. He got and escorted out. They didn't physically touch watch. Melons just exploited i. I was very stein's. Why it didn't touch that host is because i was watching too many krahn pike mike rims on c. They were i didn't want to contaminate a touch of tabloid current retarded ticket if they with a put down my pants and gone about knowing yes he said but it's not your fault was a split decision against the detective. Take the mccague's sean guiding the curse. He was around there within twenty four hours which is very good at it and he called told me said not. She started out what i want to know. What the listeners of mice thinking right now. Why the hell would you try try that. I doubt that he's not a reasonable thing for i do you would hope that this guy look if you jenny would you would side. Yes this might have something to do with the kyw's clings to the place but to throw it out means one thing a stipend malices expensive succeed and criminologist. She's hiding something. I asked us jewett when it was that he visited harry phibbs his widow and he then spoke more about the twelve coincidences ledges point to harry phibbs the incident with the purse with brain about who very early on around two thousand ice but from that purse also the coincidences started building and i was sending this to buy dacron directly. These winstons and i said there was either twelve. Let's go through some of those firstly when you book a case. Is he mile. Will that's not a coincidence yesteryears. Does he fit the rhines. Now harry phipps in nodding sixty six who's forty. I us old now. The description of the man at the beach was he was mature. Aw he was middle aged. He was between early thirties to early forties now harry phipps and outspoken too many people that it would be in the nineteen sixties. Harry phipps look much younger than these years and if you have a look at us in the early sixties he is already into his forties and he actually is sort of a by b feis so he looked much younger than so we can bring him back the site early forties yes indeed i i mixed the man at the beach the by will plying we've was toll feed an athletic build contained week big. He was clean shaven. We've cut back hair light brown with a few lives in one thought he had a long beach feis harry fixes description in the nineteen sixties. He was a regular bridge go to kelly reserve or two colored zip kuno beach. He was pained. He was fit looking. He had brushed back white powder to one side with a long beach vice now. Gotta you've got a mile fitting description and fitting the is right leaving very close to calling reserve. These things are starting to pint pitcher into. It's a geographic profile is as follows what the before the next thing is was he nine to hand out payback's dow beast. He's he's very pivotal. He was nodding sixty six and has been ever seats. It's stop pound dogs. Harry fits was ninety about health nuts in the nineteen fifties sixties into china java decimal currency. He was well nine for that. He was a big tipper. He was a big speed that he was wealthy. They are in the cost and lloyd factory at clinton. He started that for nothing making castings for the sake exploring pains. He was making casting school cooking cakes. If remembers and charles going back to the sixties seventies in bob would make a cake in the sort of casting. Ask a team casting. That's what constantly they expanded from that thank my other pops and pains and kettles and later on became a a distributor a mica of the holly davidson rims could either saw calls he'd made a lot of money was being there in the nineteen sixties. That's why he was not pound nuts as detected signal reitera they sit and sit nail who was wealthy enough to handle a coun- nuts in the nineteen sixties so now we've got harry fits the description. He's got the brushback aires pain. He lives very close to kelly reserve. He lives. He's very close to winds battery and the pound nuts that alone would ride juries mix. He is not alleged pedophile agai. You really hone it down to one. I fix all that and harry phipps <music>. Now it's corroborated. He loved dressing up in set collaborated fall will if he dresses up in salmon that spawn now the next set but when he drinks up in san in dresses encroaches on person private spice everything challenges then us stewart to take us through the two searches that were conducted in recent years harry factory that costs the factory and into the tip off that led to those searches the place scott to really get involved in around like two thousand eight two thousand food thing because circumstantial evidence was building on character entered. I'ts not which restricted fail programs and ela whitaker got a cold from individual that said guy had dug dug a hole in the back of past voice factory three days after the children went missing. I got a call from allen. We d you can onset alcohol. Guy adams see them and i saw this is starting to get too big on a bill. Hi be involved. He got in contact with the gentlemen. He's nine with david. He has been interviewed and filmed. He went down to see him. He did and it was corroborated. Emmys braga ah for us by the father who worked the castellina nonex- sixties. Do they want to make some pocket money doing some what the harry phipps on is on the way it was the weekend following a strategy they went down. Harry fisk was riding there by news harry six or now edible terry foods because he was sitting in this lodge child with big fins on the back. I said wasn't a normal astrology top harry that tom is driving a cadillac catholic. He gave him shuttles and he said that he wanted. I six foot long three-foot audit six the hull dug in the becca castello them. He sat in the car and he watched it was hard work once they finished keep pipe them in pound notes agai donning owning sixty six that was a huge amount of money so that were very happy to be kite pan that was hard work but it was worth it and it wasn't just one or two nights several saver and then he told bugs of them and i remember this because it sort of stands out fuck coffee little comes uh-huh dot com back. We pass it onto the place. The place were around after lot of doing throwing in fact which i we're going to dig me because of a current affair things dighton ought they were forced to it was political pressure to whatever reason we ah. Di weren't going to dig a back of that factory. So on this occasion bhai were forced to dig dig the back of the factory and they uncovered nothing so therefore the case was pretty well closed at that time what we found out light through an aerial view akali reserved the nineteen sixties way they got their bearings from from the baton guides coming into austin well that guy that i took the bearings from wasn't a nineteen sixty six in fact back guy was further down by it kind of this realization may co bill highs agai bill highs wing castilian spiked to the general manager but to a fake crew member dan camera and i worked out the guy was definitely fidel sixty six this is where channel seven got involved very heavily and then i started getting politicians involved and the niger koran they got involved because i could see what we saw and i will fully on board. They had some type of discussions castelo. We had criminologists. We had <hes> probably a father's. We had the heads of by jakulan. We had media. We had bill highs. They're all discussing this. A mistake was being my was ni- pudding spoke and now get us ground penetrating equipment that was probably bought channel seven to have look at the way they think the awards they did find some anomalies and hate to lead to the two thousand seventeen biggest becker metastable factory but half the world was honing in on this is the best league with ever had a case. I d big down a few bugs hosts cow shape some <hes> not many and a bit of rubbish that was all everybody was let clicks david who had helped big that whole eco astrid right off to oops excuse expression what the fuck did. We dig that whole or mike. Since what was he doing. He hardly anything that goes. Barnes could have been leftover from dick and nadia decades ago hundred years ago. It just didn't mike sense in effect going one place of detective. When i was walking checking out he was shaking his head and said this visine. I'll she'd sided all sit walk. Why did he big the whole through. A lot of people will sign the same thing. Brady eddie holds from channel nauta counterfeits. Thank thing done understand why a gentleman would be such a big hole to bug rolling so that wasn't just a decoy. We cannot be similar. What was we'd the hole. How old was doug at the back of the factory. There was two halls beckon suit valves of fifteen after that hala was doug hiding the fiefs chiefs cohen his cousin who is nine for many many years and said to him. They fucking dot in the wrong spots. Cousin konate shipped him at that song. Hide must have been in around when this happened happened. He's sick to bill is easy was getting retire after they've done a very lengthy interview with the hi bill and said to him feel they're in the same debbie bill. He was selected for long gone and he shape that name was telling the truth he was telling me way. These children are the sandpits kosta oil to he told his grandson. The shooter are in the pits. He told meetings second lost. The children are in the sandpit when he told me when i met him he said the shooter are in the sandpit a children up if you have a look at the same p._d.'s is in nineteen sixty six. If you get a narrow view of castaway which you can the whipsawed mobile home depot you will see with the sand pit was it is statement in easy view and the statement analysis experts have said something about the two all cottages at cost and louis you clearly visible. The san was behind them. It's the cottages and the sand pit physically skein. You only talk about it to a certain extent. This is way heightened. Phipps has said on numerous occasions but shooter <hes> aw barre that also win the second dig took place was i <hes> i full sawn had plastic cover. Put on the guy. I constable the place now have that position. It said jinan ana a buried here grab is not hype so's resting place and scott down the bottom c._s. This'll be in the book. We looked at that diagnosed. Who put it the the police have now they position that was eerie. Why would somebody say a two-children up buried. He at one is not so after that big. Somebody knows something inside hints. That's what going forward with this and we will not relent. Wait until we find out what happened to them. All yes jewett. If you knew where the saint pete area was that hayden phipps was referring to that fan camp that heightened talks about you can see clearly in an area would be color resumed in the nineteen sixties where that was now is a cop pock doc that easy behind us and a guy when you see an era you even see coffee juice behind that is way the same is according according to the is photos but a guy as a state there is a todd koppel of had a few people that said there is no way they're going to do anything anything would cost elliott has been closed down onto its that sandpits dug up. There is a few people the politics and very singer physicians of the already told me and bill we are going to look at that. I believe it'll be a groundswell of people side. Dig it up. It might cost but this is our only chance to find out you know. Is there something in the sand. People is not to not covered. I've with housing legal. What have you gone to use it for until we get that opportunity because it'll be a griping justice. If it's not done we have the opportunity. Let's do it and i asked stewart what needs to be done for dig to take place in the area where the scene was for dick tight kleist firstly to cast italy factory tree is closed down. It'll be completely stripped inside forked within the next few weeks so talk about the beginning of august it goes back to be owned by the south unstrung government what happens after that one of the cast of factory in the land on which is huge. We brought by what we going to ask government. The government of its own is to dig up that copy from where the same pit was. I think saudi stunning paperwork demanded mandat. I think with the mr by just think of then it's. I guess it's going to cost some money. Got the not knowing going at least if we dig it up and we dig up that champagne area if they not bad not bad but what had stewart how far are away the saint pete area res from the area where harry beeps ordered the two boys to dig a hall for him. I the warranted he digged that hall and that that that is a mystery. That's going to battle including the tickets while i dig such a deep hall and bogglingly and why guy to that if two boys that doug bet home piece off or to suckle and don come back. It sounds like this person is hiding something. If as heightened said they're in the same the same us at the other end so we cannot was throwing people along the same i mean we can only do the facts that same at bain there for years where they port the filings or the cast export findings from the factory they would put those in and they would bulldoze the cross and it was a very sub saying at the back of the factory. Where did that gig big. I even notice when they started digging. That is not something that was very hot. However if you come back down towards the league two houses where the cop hockey's and are bathed in there and i'll bait native shuttle off doug where i could eighties sane. It is very easy to gig quite a deep hole. I'd dot dan of all better. Foot very easily was like sand the beach that what is the same underneath with cop hockey's is saying at the back of the factory on the opposite sides or opposite roy to ring <unk> avenue that is hard soil and when i first carry out the date that was the first thing on notice and a few others that he's not seen that he's soil so guy back. We dig up the cow. That's on each time so that can be done twentieth and then we stopped digging in on lingerie not just one small area but water rare must mattis. He's lost the ticket on judy that diet cornell said he would be down coming with a pick and shovel. He said that area needs to be dug. Something sinister happened castaway factory around that shape mcculskey us back in the nanking sixty six and we wanna nine walked. If there was an online petition or crowdfunding page twit paypal could go to support the campaign to have the saint pete area dug up and searched the publication of the book who took the by children should be the first quarter next year. We are going to catch inside that we doing on lawn. Money rise came pine for castelo asteroid only if we need it. I believe we will because there's enough people that delayed and that up got the influence to to get that factory dug up some parts of that. If that's not the catchy that doesn't happen. We're going to coincide with the book who to buy among children. It will come in saint tom including youtube agung slump meet tight and i believe we have enough money to do what we need to do. In a very short period tong stewart finished telling us why he won't give up people say why don't we just leave it alone. Think about parents. We ask asking adoptive parents. If you shoot a titan you would guy entity earth the fun what had happened and mr by a two old. Mr beaumont is still alive down <hes> bloomberg area. He's about ninety two ninety three. This is bonnie watson high. She's at least onto us out. They can't do this. We're gonna do all of them because we fill as many now. It's highly likely that harry fixes volved. Okay get duchesne. Allegedly with people say all the please do the work. We did leave the place place to work. Elect the place to work. The single thing is that the police have a lot of cases to solve. How much attention can they actually get to this. We're doing what they i don't have the time for and have the results who's for the place of great fantastic light blassie's by an absolutely fantastic else to also had wide bringing up now. That always rankles made. What do you mean why bringing up now expense for the last fifty eve's it'll never be sold people that say that there's like how you know want be solved because it hasn't been so before so we put a man on the merger that hadn't been done before it can be done and can be so we just have to hymie harry harry six and following this and if we do i believe as with bill is will they will be a positive conclusion a big.

As they stories dominated national headlines impromtu arms. The unsolved case of the missing Beaumont children was vastly. I've shadowed something big needed to happen to prevent the case from fading into obscurity. Jim and Nancy Beaumont had already been approached by many self-proclaimed spiritualists who claimed to know the whereabouts of their children. One such spiritualist claimed to have recited division of the children buried in a grave at the bottom of a cliff in the bait Saad suburb of marina, non Columba's, south from Gano. His permission Comtois sparked a police search of the suspected saw but nothing was found. In a bid to help solve the mystery and employees of South Australian newspaper the ad Vittorio. Roy a leda to find Dutch player Voyin Girod Creuset asking the he's assistance to help like the missing children. Creuset who claimed to have started receiving Sarkic missions during his lessons had owned a reputation in the Netherlands. I is thing police in solving murders and missing curse cases. He's fame had spread throughout Europe into the United States. And he's hope was sorting many high profile criminal cases. From his home in Holland Creuset responded to the newspaper, employee's leda styding. Hey believed the Beaumont children had been involved in a tragic accident unrelated to fail ply. He said they could have been playing innocently when something around them collapsed causing them to lose a battle against sand or water. For his visions revealed.

Curry's interest in the by on children was the fresh group needed to bring the case back into the media spotlight. Would of course, it's vision was quickly published by the Vata with several other publications reaching out to the Dutch soggy and printing Dera Tyke on the story. The new media attention renewed public interest with many members of the public flogging caves and Talas throughout glencoe and neighbouring caused the Larry's to search Jane honor grant based Puglio crow sets would. Upon Reseda photographs and further information Croix zits, visions, became more, vivid. He described saying that's rate children's bodies lying in a cave knee, rox on the beach with scrubland and to square house to the rot handsaw and shows or Caro Rafe in the distance. South. Australian citizens believed to Gerard Creuset had identified the Minta home in Broughton a residential support and education facility for the intellectually disabled. Minta home was like I did on the coast three Columbus sale on the bones property. The media quickly entertained theories that the perpetrator could have been a patient that Minta home who off the kidnapping and killing the Beaumont children buried them on the foreshore in front of the Mindy grounds. From his home in Holland Creuset advised that allied citizens they were on the right track. And encourage them to keep digging front end light is brought into Mundus coastal boundary to remove tons of sand and soil, but the excavation revealed nothing and the Dc became a public embarrassment. In November nineteen sixty six two prominent Adelaide businessman funded a trip to bring Sarkic Gerard Creuset to Estrada. Ten months had passed since the disappearance of the bone children. And it was believed that Creuset physical presence in the K life Asians from where I had vanished would strengthen he saw abilities and hope blade thirties to Jane, Ana and grant.

And when not actively involved in the efforts to bring a clairvoyant to Estrada. Gerard creuset? A great disdain outta light Fatu dice and refused. Any payment as involvement in the case? He was conducting he searched for the Beaumont children in good faith, claiming he was ninety percent shoal. He would be able to pinpoint the like Asian of their bodies. His arrival. They not alight prompted a media frenzy that outshone near RAV of British rock and roll band the bagels two years ago. A crowd of two thousand people greeted Creuset at outta light airport, including thirty reporters and cameramen with anticipation running that he would funnel himself. The mystery that had been haunting residents for close to a year. Crozet was I've a wound by the reception saying all he wanted to do was hope solves the tragedy and to release the city from fee. The next morning Creuset visited Calley reserve where it was believed, Jane, Ana and grant by Mon law, saying he then what three kilometers along the Glenn. Oh, four show with a media crew following close on. Blind Creuset was driven through the straits of gla. No and to past the Minta Hon which had light residents had pinpointed as the location. He had envisioned in previous so visions. Despite previous lodge sky will digs of the area proving fruitless upon he's arrival to the area present client who is now very close to finding that children. The next day. He searched if I can blocks of land without uncovering any evidence before complaining that too many people were following him and old the attention was weakening. He saw capabilities. On these phone on morning in that allied to rod Creuset impromptu press conference to reveal that new information had since come to laud I've annoy. A woman claimed she had heard children's voices in a disused warehouse near in the only morning hours of January twenty seven nineteen sixty six the not the bone children went missing. At the time. The way house was biking having previously been used for brickworks headed since being converted into join ary company. And although extensive renovations of the building had been conducted in August. It was possible that several underground shoots leading to the old brick kilns still existed. Creuset led police and members of the press to away house on Wilton avenue in poor Inga less than five hundred pages from the Beaumont's time believing that children were buried two to three made his deep in an underground bunko. He walked to the northern wool of the warehouse and said. This is where I buried. According to his visions Gerard Creuset climbed. The Beaumont children were afraid to go. I'm in the dog so hot fish Elta near the empty warehouse. The tree Iowa standing on planks of wood, which then caved in causing them to fall on the ground. The floor of the warehouse it since being concrete it meaning the children's bodies wearing tuned underneath. Off the bestowing. This information Gerard Creuset supported the idea of excavating the concrete fool, and then promptly left the country. Residents about allied to Kreuzer that's word as gospel believing. He had uncovered the fauna resting place of Jane, Ana and grant bone under pressure from the public the south striving government deliberated whether to dig up the warehouses concrete floor using taxpayer money by stone. Nothing more than a Sarkic premonition, although g mended means he bone had met with Creuset briefly during his visit. And appreciate it. He's interested in case. They would not convinced, AVI. So I could abilities and did no support the dig. Police investigated Creuset claims by racer ching. What the conditions of the old warehouse were locked in January of nineteen sixty six and determined. There was nothing closeable about Creuset so-called fishing. The building owners short police all in grant, Pete's with Arlene spec that before concreting what began and there were no Sohn's indicating the children had fallen into any. In late November nineteen sixty six sales destroy Liam Premio. Frank Walsh, stated quite. Investigations have shown conclusively without a shadow of doubt that there is no possible chains the factories the burial ground of the missing children. It was decided that an excavation of the concrete flooring would not go ahead. However, the public wasn't convinced the findings and was certain Creuset, visions where correct. Citizen action committee band together to conduct a public survey in support of the excavation and raised seven thousand dollars to fund the project the excavation took place the following year in March nineteen sixty seven. Work is demolished sixty fate of the concrete flooring revealing an old staircase at brick kiln a pace cloth.

On behalf of the south stri, lean government premier Frank Walsh. Apologize to G men Nancy bone for the continued anxiety and Sarah. By the one year anniversary of the Beaumont children's disappearance. Their parents were still clinging to the belief that Jane, Ana and grant were alive as it was the only thing giving them the energy to carry on. Jim by continued to grasp onto his theory that the children were lowered and -ducted quite. A man or woman will probably a main and two women together persuaded them to get into a car and drive them away somewhere. They might tell them Nansen dog what killed in an accident. And I've got them somewhere. It would have to station or some loss. Alighted plice locked that. God if that could only say what it's doing to needs in may. It's no good without the children. Not when you have had them on just can't understand law without my kids. There's no point to it. Despoiled Jim, and Nancy Beaumont continued hope that children would be returned to them alive by the two year anniversary of the disappearance. Investigators were no close to uncovering the mystery. Emotionally, exhausted gene, Indonesia, decided to take a step back from the media spotlight off to providing one lost in depth interview. I spoke to the pressing Dato about Jane, honor and grant, and what I missed most about the well behaved sweet natured children I had always dreamed of having whilst thanking the South Australian police for their toilets were and praising the community for the ongoing support. The hot felt of you ended with Nancy Beaumont's response to the question of whether she and GM would rely to a new home for fresh thaw, Nancy said, quote, Congo in case the keys come high. He say on waiting for them to come back. He have someone could drop them at the front gate. Wouldn't it be dreadful? If all were not he. In the days following this interview. G and Nancy bone was shaken when a letter arrived to their time sawn by they missing Doda Jane written in child lock handwriting the lead. I read. D mom and dad, we assign F. So there is no need to worry about us. We really missed you in the past two years at the bay on that day, we will walking to the bus stop. When a man in a cost dust and asked if we wanted a rod said that we did. And that is how it all started. The man would not let us right before he's letting us right now because he saw the article in the herald to not and to sorry for you both. He watched us a lot for about six weeks. And then he did not watch us so much. Honor and oil and talk about you the grant does not remember you at all often more than two years. We have been fed will hold atone tone as well as honor grant hoped that you both. Well, the me and said to me just NIA that he will willingly let us go. If you will come of it to Victoria to get us as long as you do not call the police. In the Leta. Jane went on to request that her father come to Dandenong to made that cap though, a south based in SABA been the neighboring state of Victoria, seven hundred sixty kilometers away from the Beaumont's. The rendezvous was scheduled the tight place out the front of Dandenongs local post office said I fifty IM the following Monday. February twenty six.

They made you concern was that on his name had been misspelled in the Letta using only one end instead of two despite the fact that Jane nude the correct spelling of his sister's night. Not wanting to disregard the letter on. What could have been a simple spelling mistake, Jim and Nancy contacted the head of the South Australian homicide squad detective sergeants, Dan, swine and talk him into hoping the Moga has a secret trip to Dandenong. Swayne grade and put the plans in place, taping his involvement strictly confidential as to not alert the alleged capita to involvement of law enforcement. Prior to his arrival to Dandenong swaying code ahead and booked the room at a Lago where he would stay at the jurisdiction of the scheduled made up. When making the booking the detective sergeant gave the hotel many Joe he's full night. As had been some thefts in the Dandenong area. Rayson -ly the owner of the hotel was wary about lending complete strangest. I n es establishment to make sure this guests didn't present a threat. He contacted a local police office to run a background check on the name. Stan swine. The local office discovered a belonged to a South Australian homicide squad detective who was heavily involved in the Beaumont case instead of trading. This information sensitively the officer then called a reporter at the Melbourne-based herald newspaper to advise him detective swine surprise appearance in town. The herald news pipe sent a group of reporters and photographers to the Dandenong region to discreetly Skype detective swines whereabouts convinced he's presence had something to do with the Bom case at the Saint town. The news news piper. Not alight had received a tip-off from someone close to the bone family and sent their own group of reporters and photographers into state to invest the guide. On the morning of Monday, February twenty six Jim Bown stood alone out the front of the Dandenong post office has it been instructed to do in the lead from Jane detective sergeants, Dan swine was watching discreetly from Niba posing as a window cleaner. The telephone rang in saw that day that on post office and the Myo coul Ross the staff member tween foam, Jim Beaumont that he was running like that would bay designated matings bode as soon as possible.

However that when I saw of Jane, Ana grant, all the mysterious, man. Dejected Jim Indonesia returned to Adelaide with two more letters were awaiting them upon their arrival one leda was allegedly from Jane who said that capita was very disappointed that I brought the police with them. No the second letter claimed to bay from the capita himself. He wrote. D- mister and MRs bang on OEM terribly. Sorry that could no hand. Joe children back to you.

With the media now firmly focused on the Vietnam war, the disappearance of nine year old Jane seven-year-old, Ana and four year old grant became a distant memory. What was once the biggest criminal investigation in south? Australia was nail of a Saint by a single detective. Over the years, the occasional pace of information related to the case filtered through and police continued to follow up on oh lawns of inquiry and that s speculative, but nothing substantial level surface. Seven years off by vanished. Memories of the bone children's disappearance flooded back into the alight consciousness as news of a similar of Duchesne made at lawns. On august. Twenty five north seventy three eleven year old JoAnne Ratcliffe, escorted four year old Kirsty Gordon to the bathroom stoves during a football match held at a light of a lodge football. And cricket study on the banks of the Tarn river less than two kilometers north of the bay. The troops should have taken just a few minutes, but twenty minutes Lyda the ghosts do hadn't returned to their families. The alarm was quickly raised into police contacted promptly initiating fooling Vesta Gatien. Joann and Kirsty lost. Same by several witnesses struggling with a man who then dragged the goes out of the oval southern guides. Demand was described as being average hot with stooped boss Joe wearing a wide brimmed a cougar stall hut who named glosses Greig check at sports jacket and Brown trousers. Investigators had learned a lot since the bemoan case and to now new missing children cases, should no longer be handled. Conservatively this time abduction and probable murder was suspected almost immediately and reported in the media such. Yet despite efforts, JoAnne, reckless and Kirsty Gordon would not like I did novas the man Las same with them off benefited. The investigation into finding JoAnne and Kirsty plight. Similarly to the bone case in that no evidence was on covered and the subsequent. Search was bogged down bought bugassault writings walled, speculations hoaxes and unsubstantiated visions from spiritualists including input from Gerard CROs at the Dutch clairvoyant who Sarkic visions filed to uncover any sawn of the Beaumont children. Based on witness accounts award Cal sketch of the man sane abducting, JoAnne and Kirstie Joan up and widely circulated similarities were immediately drawn to the sketch of the unknown, man. Seining collie reserve with the Beaumont children just before they vanished in nineteen sixty six. By sketches depicted a middle aged man with a long lane face and well-defined bone structure. Paid her Alexsandr from the police association of south Estrella, light said quite. There is a big chance. These two crimes linked this type of Fender these top of Killa, he just can't get a handle on even on a worldwide basis. These extraordinary the psychology and supreme confidence of the guy. He's a standing one group of children taken from a crowd at bait. The other from crowded sporting field both in broad daylight. The light nineteen seventies. And eighties South Australia was once again struck boy spite of horrific of doctrines into modo's. Five young men went missing over those years that bonus Elida fan in various locations throughout alike. Police believed network of sadistic pedophile where responsible for the crimes men who held prominent positions within delight society. As the perpetrators were suspected to go to great lengths to prevent one another from being detected. The brutal slayings were dubbed the family murders. In November nineteen ninety four at a light accountant Bevan Spencer. Von Arnim was sentenced to life in prison for the motor fifteen year out Richard Kelvin, the faith family mode is victim. In no, anti not the details of the committal. Hearing Hoed prior to Bevan Spencer von Arnim murder trial were released to the media after a series of suppression owed as what lifted. Crown witness identified only mister bay who had previously pothead with Vaughn on 'em handwriting and assaulting Myo Ishak is at testified at the hearing. Mister bay told the court that venenum had confessed to committing at least ten murders, including the deaths of the Beaumont children. Von on admitted to adopting the by monsoon before connecting them up and performing some quite brilliant surgery on them. After one of the children Daud he killed the other two and dumped the bodies that the my Ponga Oma wanna to areas like added on the southern coast of alight. Vaughn most I mentioned that he had picked up two children at the football. As in the case of JoAnne, Ratcliffe and Kirsty Godin. Despite this alleged confessions many aspects, but lauding Bevan Spencer von Einem as a suspect in the bone case didn't add up. Although he's build matched that of the man lost sane with the Beaumont children. Von on him had only been twenty years old at the time that disappearance this was much younger than witness descriptions, who consistently reported the man last seen with the children as being middle-aged in his thirties or early forties. The bone children all side didn't fit the profile of venoms preferred victims who would typically miles in their teens and early twenties. Bevan Spencer von on denied any involvement in the abductions of the bone children or JoAnne Ratcliffe bent occurs. The gouden. However, speculation he's involvement in the Beaumont children's disappearance was Reyad noted when reports alighted circulated that a mile spectator. Resembling young vote on him was cooled in the background of archive footage watching as police dog is searched the pedal along about Ivan. As killers have been known to return to the scene of Krahn to weigh the Rayleigh of their fantasies Bocek on police progress. Was speculated the Vana was exhibiting textbook criminal behavior. An expert in forensic facial mapping compared the images of the spectacular to that of a young phone on him. And concluded there were considerable differences between the piss facial structures. The phone on look was determined to be just that a local. Nevertheless, Bevan Spencer. Von was no dad as a suspect in the bone case. Following Mr. bays allegations self striving police turn to their investigations to them pogo reservoir, the location von told mister bay he had dumped the bodies of the three children. On February two Nantie, no anti police. Dav is from the underwater recovery unit. Arrived to the flurry opinion Chila sixty kilometers south from at alight to conduct a search of the manga reservoir. The major undertaking presented multiple challenges as the reservoir held twenty eight thousand eight hundred Meghalaya's of water with the depth of one hundred maters in some places making it difficult fidora's to reach the bottom before they compression stops were needed. The water also contained fine silt that significantly reduced visibility. And tons of accumulated silt would have gathered over the years since the children went missing effectively burying any remains. Police revealed that was searching for bodies, but refused to comment on whether it was those of the missing Beaumont children. Days of searching filed the uncover any remains and to the search was eventually code off. I'm not to police confirmed suspicions that I had indeed been searching for the remains of the Beaumont children as well as Kirsty golden and JoAnne Ratcliffe, but nothing had been found. Another massive and devastating setback to the Bonn case occurred in Norton Ninety-two advances in fingerprint technology, presented the oput unity to test the fingerprints fan on the handwritten lead supposedly pen by giant bone and her capita back in nineteen sixty eight. Lettuce that prompted G men to Nancy Beaumont to travel to Dainong in Victoria with the false hopes of being reunited with their children. Testing of the fingerprints revealed the author of the letters to forty one year old man from Victoria when confronted by police. The Victorian main admitted he had originally written the lead as a teenage prank which had quickly spiraled out of hand. He had seen expressed great remorse for he's immature behavior. Regretting hoax. These auto Yee's. Police determined the man had absolutely knowing of in the Beaumont children's disappearance, and he was promptly eliminated as suspect given the man of Tom that had lapsed, and he's I at the Tom of the Cohen night charges wherever fall against him. As the non nineties came to an end, another person of interest was named in the bone case office Stanley Brown. In nineteen ninety eight Brown was charged with a non teen seventy mode of sisters Judah than Susan McKay aged five and seven he needs town of tans Ville coins land preowned managed to avoid detection for the Motors for almost thirty years. After he's eventual arrest the Browns photograph was widely circulated in newspapers and television reports nationwide. Jogi the memory of a witness to the nineteen Seventy-three abduction of JoAnne Ratcliffe in Kirsty, Gordon who identified Brown as the goals, Dr. Even in his older years. Brian bull haunting similarities to the authentic sketches and witness descriptions of the suspect brought down to the watt brimmed AKU stall hat and honed in glosses often war. Hold on brand was settled in Queensland. He had frequently traveled into state for work. And it was possible. He had passed through South Australia hard for the years. As the sketch of JoAnne Kerr's, these abductor has been widely compared to that of the man lost saying with the Beaumont children Graham was considered a suspect for both crimes. By the time. He was arrested for the MacKay sisters murders. Eighty six year old author Bram was suffering for miles as disease dementia and determined unfit for trial. He was there for laced to live out the remainder of his law in a nursing home without ever facing trawl for the forty five charges which had arisen since his arrest, including ripe Moda soda me. And deprivation of liberty. He died in two thousand four legally as an innocent, man. In may two thousand four convicted child Killa dairy Curnis Percy was named as yet another potential suspect in the bemoan case, courtesy was convicted in non sixty nine for the abduction and murder of twelve year old Avante two from abate in Victoria. He was found not guilty Judah raisins of insanity but was holding custody indefinitely. Police suspected Percy could have been involved enough to know unsolved crimes related to missing go murdered children throughout Australia during the sixties. This included the unsolved one debates modes covered further in episode one of case fall. Collection of personal Dariz and drawings written and illustrated by their Kersey detail disturbing torture, fantasies that bore striking similarities to real crimes committed against children that had occurred prior to his arrest. Strengthening the suspicion. He was far more prolific. When questioned about his involvement in other run solve crimes Kersee tall police. He believed he was not alight the tone by Montrose. Dron went missing. But insisted he had no memory of anything else. Even if Percy's memory was correct. He was just seventeen years old in nineteen sixty six much too young to be the main witness in the company of the Beaumont children. Police have also Bain unable to determine whether Percy had access to a car at the time of the children's disappearance, which investigators presumed would have been necessary to facilitate a quick getaway. The reliability of Percy's climbs was one of contention given the fact he had Baindain to lazily insane. In July two thousand thirteen Derek Percy Dodd without providing any deathbed confessions that many were hoping for leaving members of law enforcement and many graving families, including the bones with the dances. At the tone of the new millennium the truth of what happened to the Beaumont children remained, unknown. But the list of suspects potentially involved in the disappearance continued to grow. In the two thousands convicted child killer James ROY in our Neil became the subject of the base a documentary. Todd, the fishermen journey into the mind of Killa. I knew was charged in nineteen seventy one for the abduction and sexual assault of four young boys in Victoria, but skipped bio fled the state and changed his name. Four years later in nineteen seventy five he was located entice mania where he was arrested until I two convicted for the abduction and murder of non-euro Tasmania boy, Ricky Smith. During production of the documentary Neil develop the friendly report with these interview foam Victorian police detective, Gordon DIVY. After spending three years getting to know that convicted killer of he's documented DIVY suspect. I Neil could have been involved in several other missing children cases, including the bone children. New nod having ever visited Adelaide, but he's work in the pooling district. Put him in the South Australian morning town of Kubat Patey up to fifteen times throughout the light sixties and seventies troop that facilitated stop by very not allied to return to his town in Melbourne. As DIVY interviewed are Neal's, former acquaintances the retired detective learned from multiple sources that are Neal had boasted about being responsible for the death of the three bone children. Diaby suspected are Neo could have taken the children all the way to kube PD eight hundred forty six kilometers north of at alight where he then dumped their bodies down on abandoned damone shaft. Diaby Tuckey information to South Australian police who subsequently interviewed O'neil, but ultimately ruled him out as a suspect. Yet another two suspects in the bemoan case where uncovered when allegations made by the adult children of Adelaide businessman, Ellen Maxwell McIntyre were heavily publicized in two thousand seven. Has children who had publicly accused their father of bang incestuous? Pedophile claimed that hey, along with business colleague and foam, a scoutmaster Antony Monroe went to Glenn obey Australia in nineteen sixty six. When the two men were time that would by visibly agitated MacIntosh, children claimed Santa blood visible in munari's car and profess to saying the buddies of three children in the boot of the vehicle. Police investigated the shocking climbs, but ultimately cleared Alan maximum McIntyre, Andy Anthony, Monroe of any involvement in the Beaumont children's disappearance yet McIntyre himself later admitted that there was partial truth to the allegations. During an exclusive interview without alight news pipe, the ad Vittorio MacIntosh vindicated himself and pinned the entire crime Onis friend Anthony Monroe, alleging that on a stride. I know in tain sixty seeks Monroe arrived at his property. We three bodies in the back of his car. Mcintyre described Monroe as quote, one of the most evil pace of work that ever drew breath. Until I continued to the noise any personal involvement with the crime up until he's death in two thousand seventeen that same year two thousand seventeen seventy two year old Anthony Monroe Clinton guilty to ten unrelated child sex crimes dating back to the sixties some of which occurred in Glenn oh during the Toan period by Mont children went missing.

At the time of the bemoan children's disappearance. Allen Maxwell McIntyre iron to block of land in the yolk peninsula town of stands berry, two hundred kilometers west of Adelaide.

We do Kerr explained that on a strategy diagnose eighteen sixty six the Beaumont children had paid for their launch at Wenzel K shop using mysterious way, lavish one p on to note.

Nevertheless, researchers to Mullins proceeded to look into the law of the prominent respected businessman to determine whether the accusations against him could be true. Mullins arrived to Glenn visiting the house behind Colley reserve where Harry Phipps leave until he's death. The half nap belonged to Phipps second wife. During a tour of the house Mullins was taken into an underground Sela, which Phipps said do is disease work show. The Mullins quote saw it of something sitting on a shelf. The was a what clip top vintage purse in pristine condition, the very same coined Jane Beaumont had left time with on January twenty six nineteen sixty six. Unable to take more of this. Bizarre. So adding the next day Mullins returned to the house to question. Phipps widow about the birth.

So his father light full large bags into the boot of his car and drive away. When Hyde and entered the house, the children would no way to be saying. Alan Woody Kerns to Mullins presented derisory into Harry Phibbs in two thousand thirteen novel. Todd, the satin man uncovering the mystery of the missing bone on children.

Following the release of the Sutton man made your interest in the new bone suspect. Hank Harrison was high. When channel seven Karna fish. I today to know the story they can't the pseudonyms in exchange for use of the real names. Harry Phibbs was exposed. But today to not revealing Phipps foam business as the castaway factory north Clinton at sparked the memory of two brothers who found board asserting had been hired by Harry Phibbs to dig a hall at the factory. So I'd in nineteen sixty six just three days off to the Beaumont. Children went missing. The brothers.

This story also corroborated allegations. Harry Phipps son Haydn had made to private investigator. Bill Hayes who said he's father had buried the children at the industrial. So Hayden told quote they are in the pit Bill. Although police maintained there was no evidence to substantiate allegations made against Harry Phibbs soon relation to the bemoan children's disappearance.

The factory had changed significantly since nineteen sixty six and to the brothers were unable to pinpoint the exact location where I had originally Doug ho, the one brother believed he had a general idea. In October two thousand fourteen South Australian police used ground penetrating right to locate a small normally in the Saudi area, but upon excavation of the one may square segment of nothing was found.

MISSING The Beaumont Children

"High Crimes Junkies. I'm your host Ashley Flowers and I'm grit and since yesterday was Australia Day for our wonderful listeners. Down Unda I do that. We I think we did not in the club once where we tried to Australian accent. It's really bad you guys but anyway we wanted to celebrate by telling you about one of the most infamous and enduring mysteries in Australian history but before we tell our story though. We WanNa send our thoughts to everyone in Australia during this horrific rick brush fire season. The Australian Red Cross is on the front lines of disaster relief and we encourage everyone to donate and support their efforts. We are doing. You can find a link on our website or you can go to Red Cross dot org dot a u now. Today's story is one of those cases that never we're really. lets go of a country's national imagination kind of like Jon Benet Ramsey for us here in the US more Madeleine McCann for those in the UK in Nineteen nineteen sixty six. Three young children left their home to go swimming at the beach on Australia. Day and were never seen again. Their disappearance changed changed Australian life forever and thrust caution into the forefront of parents minds all over the country. This is the story of the Beaumont. Children Uh January twenty six nineteen sixty six is a scorching hot day in Adelaide. Despite the weather the city is brimming with excitement statement. Because not only. Is it Australia Day with this long weekend. Coming up. But there's also an upcoming ashes cricket test match so the city is teeming with sports fan from all across the country entry. The South Australian state capital Adelaide is this coastal city on the Saint Vincent Gulf and since the temperature is due to get up to forty degrees Celsius was a hundred and four degrees Fahrenheit. The local beaches are packed. On this day everybody has the same idea to beat the heat heading to the ocean. Maybe stopping at one of the local restaurants. Aunts pick-up some lunch doing just like the usual stuff to enjoy the day. Just hiding inside until Sun goes down all in all. It is a good peaceful Wednesday in the city but then some time between five and six PM that evening everything changes a middle aged married. Couple comes into the station. Russian grant usually known as Jim and Nancy. Beaumont are worried sick because there are three. Young children left home to Glen Beach that morning. A little bit before ten nine o'clock and they never came back now. They were expected to be home. I around like noon but they never showed and at first their mom. Nancy just kind of assumed that maybe they lost track of time. Maybe they missed the first bus and then they're going to be on the second so she waits for the next bus to come but they're not on the two o'clock bus either so so. The parents try searching on their own at first but after hours with no sign of the kids. Jim and Nancy knew that they had to go straight to police. According according to Alan Whittaker and Stewart moans book called searching for the Beaumont children and their follow up the satin man the police spring into action. Right away when they get a description from their parents they learn that Jane is the oldest at nine years old and she's super responsible an excellent caretaker for her younger siblings. There's seven year old aren't and four year old grant and learned that she left the house in a pink bathing suit with a little white purse to keep her money in now. Jane is also the swimmer of the three. So Jim and Nancy. We're confident that she would keep an eye on. Arna grant make sure that they didn't go too far out into the surf at the very start of this investigation. Police don't want to believe the worst. The initial she'll thought is that maybe the kids lost track of time. kind of like what their mom thought and when they realized how late that they were maybe that made them freak out more and things kind of like escalated delete right like maybe they're hiding out somewhere because maybe their parents are angry with them because they didn't come home on time right. That's what they're thinking with that mind. Police actually start their search at the Beaumont wants home in hope that the little ones kinda snuck back into hide somewhere and wait for mom and dad and wait for them to not be so upset now to be clear at first investigators. Art Right suspicious of Jim or Nancy. They just WANNA cover all their bases to see if this can be resolved quickly but unfortunately can't since a long and thorough search of the house doesn't doesn't turn up any sign of the children and by now it's getting dark outside and Jim in Nancy keep reiterating to police that their kids would not willingly outside after after dark so investigators start mobilizing more local resources to widen the search in order to do that. The Italy police and five boats from the sea and rescue skew squadron out to the Saint Vincent goal to shine their bright lights across the dark waters in hopes of spotting something but over and over again. They're light just flashes on still dark water. They come up with nothing with more people getting involved in all this activity the local media now starts is noticing. What's going on and they're thinking like? Hey something is happening and a bulletin goes out about ten o'clock that evening now mind you. This is like a full twelve hours since the kids got on that bus that morning and they push us bulletin out to the evening TV radio asking anyone if they've seen the missing kits while the news of the missing children is being broadcast odd. Cast police are still hard at work at Glen Elk. The Sydney Morning Herald reported in nineteen sixty six. That police even had aqualung divers go into the glenna Lenovo Boat Marina to search underwater but the water was super murky and there was like almost little to no visibility. But despite the setback expe- continue all through the night on land in see even checking storm drains that flush out into the ocean and they also even have people traversing up and down the rocky he coastline looking for cave ins and landslides anywhere that the kids could possibly be at this point. They're thinking is starting to change. They no longer think the kids are hiding but now they start to wonder if maybe the kids got into some kind of accident. You like kid logic when you know you're doing something you're going you you know honestly and adventure so you go into a cave or someone bury you in San and it seems everything seems like a good idea. Yeah so they're thinking like it Jane Grant or maybe stuck somewhere are and they can't get out like times of the essence plus Arna and grant aren't great swimmers and so they're thinking they could have gotten carried out baby. Jane went. She was a strong consumer trend like rescue them but she failed and the like have all the more reason to find them quickly. I mean not to go too dark too fast but was kidnapping kidnapping an option at this point like our police really just trying to find them in some sort of freak accident on the beach. Yeah so according to the book the Satin me on police start off the investigation with three main scenarios in mind about what could have happened either. A The kids drown be. They ran away or see that they've been kidnapped now. Drowning drowning gets ruled out. Pretty fast because the see had been calmed the day before when the kids disappeared and the beach had plenty of lifeguards who everyone assumed would have noticed. The three children like went in the water. And we're getting swept away. Plus none of the Beaumont's belongings were found left on shore. which is what you would expect to see if they had gone into the Ocean Shen and then never come out so drowning gets ruled out pretty quickly and so does the idea of the three kids just running away like they're happy kids? There's nothing in their past behavior to suggest that they would leave home like that. So police have to quickly set that idea aside as well and since the kids thought to a runaway and they aren't thought to have drowned that leads investigators with the most frightening prospect of all that someone was able to take not one but all three young children from a crowded area in in broad daylight. If someone snatched them like someone had to have seen it you said. It was one of the busiest days on the beach right. Yeah I mean it was YEP SUPERPAC. Even if they didn't realize right away that it was a kidnapping something would have been off. These three kids just randomly go off with a stranger. Someone would have had to have witnessed something. There had to be witnesses. So yes and this is where all of the media. Attention really comes in handy because not only does that media attention lead to the biggest volunteer mobilization nation in Australian history like Eric Arcia reported for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in two thousand eighteen but it also means that information starts flooding flooding into police stations. Now while some of these so-called tips are hoaxes some of them are from credible witnesses and coupled with what police know from. Jim and Nancy. Dancy a picture of the kids last movements really starts to appear including some information about a person who may hold the key due to the entire investigation. Numerous witnesses who were on or near Glencoe beach on the day that the kids disappear appear tell investigators about seeing the Beaumont children playing with an unidentified man now. These statements and the South Australians police incident report place the children and their mysterious companion at a place called Kali Reserve Park right near the beach before they disappeared. There are also people who just saw the children alone so in that book searching for the Beaumont Children it said that the bus driver who picked them up remembered them getting on the bus at about ten o'clock. Now there's this guy named Tov who's the local postman and he remembered saying hello to little grant who greeted him back and seemed totally happy and fine and initially. Tom Couldn't remember if he saw them in the morning or the after noon but police end up checking his shift schedule and like his records and determined that he had to have seen them in the morning based on Tom was working and they put that citing and around ten fifteen right when he starts his shift then one of gene's classmates reports seeing the siblings that morning at about eleven fifteen now all of those sightings so far or just of the kits after this though other witnesses come forward who say they saw the children with unidentified men now there are three separate witnesses. Who saw them together? There is a man who is in town to watch the cricket match there was a middle aged woman and then there was this seventy four year old woman and together together. They help police piece together. The activities of the kids later in the day now as far as police can put together it seems that the seventy four year old woman likely Lee was the first to see the kids together with this man. She says that she saw them sometime. Between Eleven and eleven thirty in the morning and then all three of the witnesses give police a description of what this stranger looks like. According to this article I found called the disappearance of the Beaumont children murder and misadventure. It's on the crime. Travelers website. All three witnesses describe the man as being in his mid to late thirties tall and tanned with a long thin face and light brown hair. That was neat and parted to one side but interestingly the middle aged woman tells police that she did more than just see them and she she actually spoke to him Melbourne's the Age newspaper reported in early February of sixty six. This man approached her at Glen L.. Beach a little little bit before noon. And he was with three kids and he approached her telling her that their money had been stolen an asking her if she'd seen anyone like rummaging through their Things 'cause she was sitting right near stop so if anything had happened she would have likely seen it now. She didn't see anything. She doesn't remember anything. They didn't talk anymore beyond this but she was able to tell police that based on his accent he was definitely Australian. They have the seventy four year. Old Woman actually sit down with a sketch artists from a local newspaper deeper and described them in resulting in this portrait of a strange man. That police are now desperate to locate. And here I am actually going to send you a picture of the Scotch catch that they came up with okay so it means a pretty normal looking guy. He's got kind of a longish face a big forehead. I guess my question is if if they saw him well enough to describe him for the sketch. Like what else did the witness like. Pick up on like. How was he acting with the kids? What was his demeanor? How are the kids with him stuff like that? So it's interesting. So according to the age newspaper people describe seeing this man quote frolicking with the kids before noon which sounds to me like he was kind of like playing with them. Everyone is having a good time. Not You know. I think it's completely different from what we might imagine of him. Just like shoving them in a car or forcibly taking them and and what we have from this lady to about him coming up and asking about the money it sounds like the kids were interacting with him and probably felt safe like they could trust him right now. What's super interesting? Is that since. They appeared to be enjoying themselves with a stranger. I find it strange. That the last credible sighting of the children actually doesn't include him so there was a staff member at a bakery in Glendale and this bakery was in very easy walking distance from both the beach and colleague reserve and and this person tells police that the three kids came into by themselves. Some lunch around midday and this isn't itself isn't unusual. Since Jane Arna in grant had been to this very shop before four and they were recognized by the staff would is weird is how they bought their food. Because the shopkeeper tells police that the three kids paid with with a one pound note okay. What's so special about that? Well a one pound note was a lot of money back in sixty six especially Ashley for young kids to have but not only that police knew from Nancy that she only gave Jane h shillings and Sixpence to cover their lunches and bus fare. All all of that was in coins so the police are thinking. Maybe the strange man gave them this one pound note exactly plus remember how this man said had their money had just been stolen like police have to consider. What if that was a lie? What if he stole Jane's money and then gave her this money? Okay but why would he steal less money and give them more back so possibly to earn their confidence like this is a widely hardly used tactic for manipulators. Getting victim to rely on you for something or making them feel like you helped them and that maybe they owe you or puts them them at ease right so learning about the sighting of this man and even the last sighting without him but this one pound note is making police. More sure than ever that the children have. I've been kidnapped and likely the three kids went away with this man willingly unknowing of his true intentions so once they have this sketch from that woman. This goes out to all of the newspapers all over Australia while police in Adelaide search for their records of sex offenders in the area to see if maybe any of them match natch witness descriptions. But here's the thing of all of the sex offenders in the area and listen there's always more than you expect. I would encourage people to just take a look. Look at their own neighborhood. I think you'd be surprised but of all the sex offenders listed in the area. They don't come up with any one. That's a good match or makes makes for a good lead now in the meantime while of this is going on the searches are still going on as well. They haven't given up on finding the kids but it's getting harder to hold out Hope because every search is turning up nothing days turn into weeks weeks into months and in September eight months after the Beaumont. All my children went missing a police officer in town and this is about two hundred miles east of Adelaide over. Here's an interesting conversation on his phone line now. This town is a really small one located like right between Adelaide and Melbourne. So what's happening. Is this local officer is basically trying to call the head office of Melbourne. When according to the book searching for the Beaumont Children he hears a woman mentioned bringing the Beaumont kids back from Hobart Bart on the island of Tasmania? Wait if he's trying to make a call out I guess I don't understand how he's overhearing this conversation so from what I understand. He's able to hear here. Because somehow some wires got crossed and I actually had to look up what this means for myself and it kind of goes back to old phone technology so I looked up on an astro telecoms about crossed wires and apparently like a pretty common problem in the old Australian phone systems infrastructure. So basically you got online and you had crossed wire are you could hear part of someone else's conversation so the fact that he heard this is totally legit. But here's the problem. The officer who hears this thinks that it's a hoax and everyone. He talks talks to the police and Adelaide the police Melbourne like they all think it's a hoax too except for one man. Detective Sergeant Stan Swain Wayne. And he's with the South Australian police in Adelaide. He is so convinced that the call is real that he actually calls Jim in Nancy to tell them that he believes that their children are still alive now while he's informing the family of what he believed to be true. Other members of the South Australian police were tracking down the woman who actually really made the call you know ahead of telling the family member and they learned the real truth that the officer who heard the call only heard parts of the conversation and and I guess once they heard the whole thing in context they come to believe that there is no real connection to the kids. They don't even think it was a hoax. Just some crossed wires and honestly painful coincidence that gave the Beaumont's false hope so that incident obviously it was a little bit embarrassing having raised the family's hope but as if that's not embarrassing enough just two months later in November police find themselves up against a Dutch psychic who is just adamant that he knows where the kids are buried now. This man flies all the way to adly from the Netherlands. Ten months after the Beaumont kids disappeared and it gets a whirlwind of media. Attention like this guy is basically. We made a name for himself by claiming to be able to use his powers to solve missing person cases back in Europe and like while he had some luck. And some maybe pretty basic basic guesswork according to the satin man I I guess. In some cases he also got access to some confidential police files that I'm sure helped his quote powers hours along so basically. He's already famous when he rolls in and so the local papers make a huge deal of his coming down. Word gets out to the point that there's a crowd of Adelaide citizens at the airport waiting when he arrives hoping that after almost a year he's GonNa be the one like swoop in solve the case and finally give if the family answers to be super clear. Police didn't pay him to come in his trip was funded by a wealthy Adelaide citizen who actually paid all of his travel expenses so he gets to Australia and claims that the Beaumont's are buried in a warehouse in purring a park so this is a spot that he's seen seen in his visions or whatever and it's where he says. They need to look in order to find the kids. Now keep in mind. There's no actual evidence to back this up. So ultimately police won't go and excavate anything based on his bike visions or gut instincts or whatever alone according to time travel article which we talked about before the psychic claimed claimed that the kids weren't murdered. Actually he says that they died as result of some kind of accident and that this mystery man described by witnesses had nothing to do do with their disappearance and the police. As I'm sure you can imagine are initially pretty skeptical way. And so he can't get them to dig right away. And this is my my favorite part. He basically only stays in Australia for three days before telling the public like I'm done. I'm going back to Europe. Like kind of washed his hands of it like they won't do what what I say. So peace out now despite him leaving like you would kind of think police are like no. We're not going to do this. He leaves everyone drops it but because it got so so much media attention and because the authorities were refusing to excavate where this psychic said the locals and Adelaide actually raise money to finance finance the dig themselves like they were crowdfunding back in like sixty seven. Oh my God and do you know what this kind of reminds me a little bit of it. Kind of reminds me of the most recent developments in the more Murray case like member there was like that House that everyone everyone was like you have to look you have to look and police are like no like. We're pretty sure nothing's they're like we did because there was so much public attention that I think they are finally like okay. We're going to do this but then after we do this. Can we just do our jobs jobs in Cancun calm down right plus. It didn't help that the place that he wanted them to dig up. Was this warehouse and someone like owned it. It's not like they were digging in the middle of the field so there was a lot of stuff that police like had to try and work around okay but like how did the public work around. Like a can't imagine that they could just show up and be like we're going to dig here. Oh you're absolutely right. The owners are not happy about it but after four months of media attention and basically demands demands from the public they kind of finally just bowed to the pressure and agree like okay. You can dig up this one specific area where the psychic said. The kids are Berry But what the warehouse owner say is police have to be there to make sure that everything is in order and so what happens is a few months later. After the psychic goes back to Europe with police presence they actually start a dig on March first of nineteen sixty seven fourteen months after Jane Arna and grant had had gone missing. Now the dig takes nine days but when it concludes no evidence whatsoever is found and the case. This goes back to being cold again now by this time over a year has passed since the children disappeared so police attention has to ship to other cases is there are new cases popping up every single day and this gets farther and farther from their minds and though the public never forgets the case it gets further and further author from the forefront of the public's mind as well that is until Jim and Nancy received a mysterious letter in mid February of one thousand nine hundred sixty eight. This is now two years since the kids went missing a letter written in very childlike. Like style arrives at the Beaumont's home it's postmarked from the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong over four hundred miles east of Adelaide and it claims to be from Jane and this is what it says as published in the Satin Man Book Brett. I'm actually going to have you read this dear mom and Dad. We you're safe. There's no need to worry about us. Oh we really missed you. In the past two years at the beach on that day we were walking to the bus. Stop on a man in a car stopped us and asked if we wanted the ride. I said that we did. And that is how it all started. The man would not let us right before he is leading us right tonight because he saw the story in the Herald's night and felt sorry for you both. He watches a lot for about six weeks and then he did not watch us so much are not I talk about you often but grant does not remember you at all. After more than in two years we have been well fed all the time I as well as Arna and grant hopes that you are both well. The man said to me just now he will willingly let us go. If you come over to Victoria to get us as long as you do not call the police. He's at that. If you do the deal is off you have to pick up in front of the Dandenong Post Office at ten minutes. Nine nine o'clock next Monday. The twenty six February. You Dad have to wear a dark coat and white pants man will no you. The man told me to tell you that the police least must not know at all. He said that if you do tell them you may as well not come so please do not tell them. The DANDENONG post office is in Victoria. In case you did not know. Oh please do not tell the police. The man did not mean to harm us. We still love you both love Jane Arna and grant. This is Jane in. Who is writing now? Jim Does what any sensible parent would do. And he hands the letter immediately over to investigators and he does this because his right away. There are some inconsistencies that stand out to police like I don't know if you noticed but the letter writer actually misspelled Arnez Name. Her name is actually spelled A. R. N. A. and the letter writer only spelt it with one end and apparently the handwriting doesn't match any of jeans. School papers offers because of these pretty important inconsistencies. Police are confident that this is another mean-spirited hoax designed to toy with grieving parents but detective sergeant stands swain the same guy who was so sure that the crossed wires call was clue is totally convinced. The letter is real and so sure of it that he manages to persuade Jim and Nancy to make a secret trip to Dandenong. Okay but the sky is ben kind of embarrassed before for in front of his colleagues by believing something that ended up being nothing. What makes him think? This one is like a Fisher real deal. So here's the thing stand. It tells the Beaumont that he himself compared the handwriting in the letter to the samples in Jane's schoolbooks and he decided but it was a match watch which feels like. Maybe he's going a bit rogue because the department already said that that they weren't imagine that these were fake and according to searching for the Beaumont children stands boss told him like dude. You got to let this go but he just couldn't so going over his superiors heads and getting Jim in Nancy's hopes up once again is bad enough but it just boggles my mind that this guy is willing to do it a second time when it seems just as unlikely to pan out into something real to me. That's it's just borderline cruel but cruel or not a desperate Jim guided by. Stan follows the letters instructions. Exactly he gets the right clothes stands outside the Dandenong post office while stand keeps watch and a phone call actually comes into the post office saying that quote the man. Dan has been delayed but he'll be there soon. Wait is actually legit. Will it kind of seems that right so they wait and weights. Let's wait and day fades into evening and neither children nor this mystery man ever show up now. The next day the same thing happens Jim stays in front of the post office while Stan does surveillance eager for any sign of children or their abductor and this goes on for three days then the media gets their hands on the story. Because get this Stan. Actually Booked Hotel Room under his real name and reporters find out that. He's there with Jim and Nancy. Nancy so the whole thing blows up in the press. The operation is essentially busted. And because of all this attention to this lead in the press it actually results in more letters from the same town arriving at the Beaumont home back in Adelaide someone claiming to be quote the man actually rights to Jim and Nancy himself this time taunting them for involving police and even blaming them for not being able to get their children back. But is this real. I mean the general belief is that this is yet another hoax even the call even the call does the stand guy. Let go of it now. Well so in that book searching for the Beaumont Children it actually kind of talks about this by the time all of this goes down in Dandenong in sixty eight. Stan is a success with the case and he almost views this as just a little setback instead of the disaster that it really is his ability to separate himself from the investigation is just totally gone. And Unfortunately Jim and Nancy who suffer the most because of it right he keeps getting their hopes up right and treating this obvious red herring as a credible lead effectively end stands career in law enforcement. So he's kind of done the Beaumont's return to their hometown. They kind of swear off talking to the media once and for all and once again the case it goes cold now five years go by with no developments. No new leads until August. Twenty fifth of nineteen eighteen. Seventy three when something terrible and all too familiar happens to young. Children go missing in an eerily similar fashion to the Beaumont no months now. It's too young girls. Eleven year old Joanne Ratcliffe and four year old Kirsty Gordon now Bagel missing from a highly publication again. In broad daylight they're at the Adelaide Oval Stadium to watch Australian rules football match with their families. Now Joanne is there with her parents lesson Kathleen and and their family friends frank while Kirsty is there with her grandmother read up now since Rita knows joins parents she leads. Joey Take Kirsty to the bathroom around three fifty. PM AM during the matches third quarter. She expects that the two girls are gonNA come right back except after about fifteen minutes. There's still no sign of them so lesson. Kathleen start hurt searching around the stadium. But they're unable to find any trace of either kirsty or Joanne so they go to the Oval Office and asked for basically an announcement to be made about the missing children children but since plays in progress the announcement isn't made until after the quarter ends which cost investigators in the family a lot of valuable time. Oh Oh my gosh. Forget about the game. There are two missing kit will yet. You'd sink the office staff basically kind of rationalized it by saying look if we made this announcement while the game's going going on no one's really going to hear it. No one's going to pay attention. There's really no point which maybe but can we at least try like five feeling like as a parent. I wouldn't care like let's do it now. Let's do it later. I want you to keep doing it until you find my kid anyway. So police get involved and start their search efforts and right away. Similarities clarity between Joanne and Christie's disappearance and the Beaumont Children's disappearance start to appear like think about both of these abductions happen in very public locations with the Beaumont. You have a crowded beach reserve. And now you have a packed stadium with over twelve thousand people when Kirsty and Joanne vanish also just like in the case of the missing Beaumont. Kids witnesses in this new case. Put the two girls in the company of an unidentified man one of Ovalles' employees. This guy named Ken tells police that he saw a man with the two girls. Two girls who matched the girls description trying to lure some kittens out from underneath a car that was parked in one of the equipment sheds on the grounds near the stadium and Ken didn't think this was weird at the time because I guess a lot of stray cats kind of hung long out in or near the stadium and kids were always wanting to play with them but he describes this man as being about five foot eight inches tall middle aged and said he was wearing the distinctive gray checkered sport jacket with Brown pants and a brown hat. They find another witness as as well this time. He was a teenage boy who corroborates cans account. And they don't get to talk to this guy a week later. The Canberra Times reported back on August. Thirty first of seventy three three that. The teenager witness a man forcibly maneuvering the two girls toward one of the exits and into the public parking lot and the teenager said that the man was actually carrying Kirsty under one arm and dragging struggling Joanne. Away with the other and his description of the men matched ken down to the man's gray coat and brown hats so armed with these two matching descriptions a local Adelaide art teacher actually paints a portrait of the unidentified man and when the depiction is shown to the public it shocks everyone. The portrait of the unidentified man from the Adelaide oval disappearances resembles the sketch of the stranger. who was last seen with Jane Arna and Krant Beaumont and here? I want you to check this out for yourself. Brett this is the same guy. This is exactly the same guy. I mean the long with a hat on. That's the only difference the long face the forehead grand. You can't see his hair because of the hat but everything else is exactly the same to me. The only difference is you the guy. At the Oval Stadium we're called Oval Guy. He's described as round fight. Eight and Beaumont guy is described as over six feet tall but that high discrepancy she has kind of negligible in my mind. Like witnesses can be off and depending on their stature. I think that's something that can easily be misjudged. Definitely we're five to everybody's telling everyone so tall but more than anything. They consider the cases as possibly connected because the MO is so similar like the victims are similar both the crimes are so brazen reason and yet police have to look at the odds of having dangerously skilled cereal abductor in their midst now. Whoever snatched Joanne and Kirsty I d seems to be just as good at hiding them as whoever took Jane Arna in Krant again days into weeks and months with no break in the case case and no clue about what might have happened to them and just like in the Beaumont Case Joanne? KERSEE's case those Colt years go by with no definitive links outside outside of basically conspiracy theories but in nineteen ninety seventeen years after the Adelaide oval disappearances and this is now twenty four years after the Beaumont spent missing facing the Adelaide media learns that the South Australian police are diving in this place called my Pong Reservoir which is thirty four miles south of Adelaide. Now ordinarily this could easily brush off as a training exercise or you know just something. Police won't confirm whatever but they're died just lost so happened to take place after a witness in another murder case testifies that the Beaumont's are buried in that reservoir reservoir we go back what other murder case so it's actually multiple murder cases so one this is going on. There are actually some really the horrific killings in and around Adelaide in the late seventies early eighties and they were known as the family murders. And I'm only going to touch on them briefly briefly here but we're actually going to do like a more in-depth audio extra over in our fan clubs so if you're interested you can go there on a website. If you're in the club you check that out after the episode Baloney Tell Tell You. These murders are pretty gruesome from nineteen seventy nine to nineteen eighty three five. Young men named Allan Neil Mark Peter and Richard go missing and are later found dead now. Four of the five were drugged and sexually tortured an autopsy determined that they all died from blood. Loss stemming from severe anal injuries injuries caused by insertion of a blunt object. Neil Mark and Peter's bodies are found in pieces and mark had been cut from his neighbor to his pubic pubic bone and then re sewn up with parts of his small intestine missing. Do we know how the fifth person died will not really so peter went missing during the same time period as the others but his body was accidentally burned by a farmer who obviously had no idea. There was a corpse on his property and he was doing some controlled burns so it's not known for sure how he died. All that was found was his skeleton. Cut into pieces. Like Neil and mark and the connection is on how he'd been mutilated after he died now despite the connections and they all seem super similar. Only one of these murders has ever officially salt. Several of the victims were drugged with the same to prescription description sedative so police us pharmacy records to kind of like narrow down their suspect lists and it pays off when they find his Adelaide man named Bevan police get a warrant for his house. Where according to the book searching for the Beaumont Children they find both drugs as well as hair and fibers linking him to Richard? Who was the fifth victim now? Bevan is charged and convicted for Richard's death in Nineteen eighty-four and sentenced to life in prison then five years later in one thousand nine hundred nine. He's charged with killing Allen. I and mark this story is bananas. But I'm getting super lost. What's the connection to the Beaumont again? So in Bevan's second trial is where this mysterious mysterious witness. We only know as Mr be due to confidentiality testifies that Bevan was the one that snatched the Beaumont children and he also says that he's the one that took Kirsty Joanne from the Adelaide Oval Stadium as well and it's because of his testimony. He's the one that says that the kids are buried at the reservoir reservoir and so the lease are doing this day. Then these records come out and the public is kind of putting this together and so now all of a sudden Bevan's name is linked to the Beaumont kits and as you can imagine the media goes nuts like this is not one not two but three of the most infamous crimes in South Australia history tied Hyde possibly together and potentially committed by the same person. WHO's already in jail in off the streets like it seems like it could be a wonderful success story like almost too good to be true Israel and realistically it might be especially since in the book searching for the Beaumont Children Mr B's credibility as a witness is seriously shaky and they basically bring that up in court as well like he missed a participating in one of the rapes and he only agreed to testify after being granted full immunity and he insists insist that he deserves the full financial reward for quote unquote with solving the crime? which okay makes no sense to me if you're also participated in rights raping raping some of the victims now? I couldn't find the actually got the award. But I mean since none of his testimony about the Beaumont's or Adelaide Oval was ever proven to be remotely true. I would be shocked if he actually got anything now. The additional murder charges that Bevin went to court for our eventually dropped and during the trial. He's not convicted but thankfully thankfully he is still in jail for killing Richard and in my opinion and this is just my opinion. I don't think he's the one responsible for the Beaumont for the family. Murders absolutely absolutely. But the Beaumont and the Adelaide Oval kidnappings don't match the family pattern to me at all like four of the five missing children that were talking about our girls and the oldest girl that we're talking about is eleven whereas in the family victims those victims are boys that ranged from fourteen to twenty five right the victim profiles. Don't don't match at all. Yeah and I was doing some reading the California Department of Justice website kind of about sexual predators and while some do exhibit more variety in their victims like different ages or genders other keep like a specific preference and that seems to be what does and since the other killings that he did. The family murders are so consistent. I don't really see him deviating gating plus he would have been in his early twenties at the time of the kids went missing in sixty six. which is really too young to match the descriptions of the man seen at the beach but again? It's it's worth mentioning because you do any research on this case. His name is going to come up okay. And if he was responsible like even the way the boys bodies were found. But the kids weren't doesn't it doesn't really add up exactly but there's a lot that doesn't add up to me and Bevan's never been charged with anything related to the Beaumont's or the Adelaide oval disappearances so after through the trial in one thousand nine hundred ninety the Beaumont case goals cold yet again and in Nineteen ninety-two the Dandenong letters are proven. Once and for all to be a fake when fingerprint analysis directs police to a man who had been a teenager back in the late sixties. And listen. He's never been named publicly but according to authorities parties he's actually admitted to writing all the letters as a hoax. Now time keeps passing and while new theories often connect new suspects to the Beaumont's case ace like including some other pretty notorious child killers across Australia. None of them are ever proven like in nineteen ninety eight eight years after that whole like reservoir reservoir day there was this eighty six year old man named Arthur who was arrested for the unsolved nineteen seventy rape and murder of a five year old and seven year old pair of sisters. Now he's charged with other like whole host of offenses for sexually assaulting a young woman and other girls and in his own family and the reason he even got tied to it initially was is that Andrew rule extra reporter for Sun Herald in two thousand one that a witness saw Arthur on TV after his arrest and he placed him at Adelaide Oval with the two girls matching watching Joanne and Christie's description and then they're thinking well whoever took those girls are thought to have taken the bull mines and that's kind of where that connection is made but but eventually police completely clear him any suspicion in the Beaumont and the Adelaide oval cases and he's like totally ruled out by two thousand one now five years later in two two thousand seven. The Herald Sun reported that convicted child murderer. Derek Percy had been questioned by police like back in two thousand five in relation to the Beaumont's and although Oh he's thought to be responsible for at least eight other child's death South Australian police told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in two thousand fourteen that he was definitely not a significant person of interest for the Beaumont's. He was already in prison when Joanne and Kirsty were snatch up so if the theory of the case is being connected was real like he couldn't have done both and he doesn't really match the description from the beach now despite these possibilities and you know the case getting renewed over and over no like real real credible links ever emerged and eventually public fascination dims though it never fully dies and eventually a book is published a fool forty years after Jane Aren't and grant disappeared. And this is when writer Alan Whittaker and his research partner Stuart mullins published the book searching reaching for the Beaumont children which is considered one of the most definitive and comprehensive accounts of this mystery. And it's a book that we've referenced a couple of times throughout this episode. I highly recommend it but when they published this book it's two thousand six. Now Mind you. And despite the forty year lapse in time everyone was about to be shocked to find find out that there was still secrets out there waiting to be uncovered and people who held those secrets. Were finally ready to talk. Because that's that's when Alan and Stuart get a phone call that changes everything that day and the police thought that they knew about this case. The person who called Allen and Stewart is a woman named Angela who believes that her former father in law had something to do with the Beaumont Children's disappearance. She says that her ex husband. A man named Hayden confided that he saw his father with the Beaumont Beaumont on the day that they disappeared. No at first Allen doesn't take Angela too seriously. He's gotten calls like this before. And he's had his fair share of run-ins with Wannabe sleuths from all walks of life. But as the conversation continues Alan realizes that not only as Angela's story fascinating. It's also really believable. So he and Stewart do some investigation basically into Angela and her background basically. They're trying to collect references casino if she can be considered trustworthy. Yeah like to make sure that. She's legit. Yeah and all of her references comeback glowing so stewart reaches out and he arranges arranges a meeting and this one meeting turns into a years long investigation by authors experts. Private investigators retired detectives active and others with dozens of interviews all around Australia in their meticulous hunt for the truth and their findings become another book which they title the Satin Man would we also referenced throughout this episode now. The title of the book refers to a brand new suspect. The Satin man and the Satin Man is Angeles ex father in law now the authors in their book you pseudonyms for their subjects but police and numerous news outlets. Let's like the Australian Broadcasting Corporation the new daily and CNN have all confirmed the satin man's true identity. So who is it. His name was Henry Phipps and he actually died back in two thousand four without ever being on polices radar now. He was never investigated needed in his lifetime for any connection to the Beaumont children but according to those who knew him best the hairy seen in private was a far different man from the one presented to the public. The first and best known sign of Harry's we'll call it a double life is right there. In the book's title his obsession and with Satin Harry was infamous within his family and their inner circle for having a satin fetish like not a healthy fetish or interest but one that was so consuming that literally no one was allowed to even wear sat near him because just the sight and sound of the fabric caused an instant uncontrollable controllable arousal. And according to the Book Harry made his own sat in Pajamas and dresses for sexual gratification. And he kept them in a private room room in the House that the rest of the family was forbidden from entering A. I'm sorry wait. What Satin Man? We have heard some dark stories about people who have dark twisted fantasies and turn on's but honestly I did not see this one coming weird right. What's Satin Satin? And like he can't see it he can't hear it. Russell be around did. You can't go to weddings obviously like yeah. I'm so floored by this entire thing but as weird as it is because it is totally. It doesn't make you a child abductor. Well no that's true like the obsession with Satin doesn't accept according to Harry. He Son Hayden. There's more like a lot. More hairy was a violent alcoholic who loved firearms and his son says that he kept guns all over the house and he also said that he had frequent outbursts against his immediate family and threatened them many times with his weapons but it gets even worse beyond that Hayden confided in Angela that he had been violently raped by his father multiple times a week for many years growing up and the abuse only stopped when he got big enough to defend himself and basically his dad's fetish of satin kind of ended up haunting him because he said he was haunted. Did by the Swish of the Satin. Fabric coming down the hallway. So he were his dad like couldn't be around it because it was it was too much. He was to arouse like I don't even think he could be around it later because it it brought back so many awful traumatic memory traumatic triggering for him now. Obviously because Harry was never on anyone's radar none of this was reported to the South Australian police at the time and Harry was never charged with a crime but by the time Harry comes into law. Enforcement's attention through Allen and Stewart Stewart beef collected a whole laundry list of circumstantial evidence that cast a ton of suspicion on him. Now I there is his status status and his wealth. Harry was a very successful businessman. He owned The castaway factory in Plumpton which is like a suburb of the area. Now being rich and well connected and prominent in Adelaide social circles was a great cover in the nineteen sixties here. He didn't fit anyone's idea of of what they thought a pedophile wise and so police never even looked in his direction. Plus remember how the Beaumont kids bought their lunch at that bakery bakery without one pound note. Yeah so apparently. Harry was big on flaunting his wealth by handing out one pound notes to Hayden and his friends to get get them out of the House on Saturday so he could be alone with his satin. It would be like our ten dollar bill for our parents. Yes it was like here. Here's the money now. Go Away and it's a habit habit kind of continued into the next generation when Hayden son Nick who apparently like lived with Harry for a time after his parents divorce like he would give him money as well so although he's never publicly said that his grandfather did anything to him. Nick also alleges that sexually inappropriate experiences is like occurred with Harry as a child though. We don't know what that is explicitly now in the book. Nick tells Stuart about how Harry would rub up against him when they went swimming together. And it's kind of like the most that we got okay. But didn't he say that he saw the Beaumont kids with Harry. Yes so this is like our biggest piece of circumstantial evidence. Australia's seven news did a documentary about here in two thousand eighteen. And they have audio of an interview that Hayden did with one of the sat millions investigators where he recalls seeing the Beaumont children on the day that they disappeared at in his family house on Australia Day. Nineteen sixty six here. I'll play it for you. S. Plus sales sales. When did you see the sign? Hello Hello Harry on the wrong Zone can we ask them. What and so's all sales are get along and from Dole's did you hear a noise? It really shy and Yukon. Sure Offense Austin she was conscious plus now I know that audio is a little rough to here so just to summarize Hayden said that basically. He saw three kids. It's at his family's House on the day that the Beaumont kids disappear and one was drastically shorter than the other two and that would match because Jane and Arno I know we're kind of close in height ish and grant was much shorter being the youngest. Then he says they were gone the front doors wide open. And here's later that day or at some point that day for gunshots. Okay but that doesn't mean anything because he said he heard gunshots all the time right right. No that's that's totally accurate but later that same interview Hayden says that he saw hairy putting some big like pvc bags in the trunk of his car. which again again at? The time didn't seem weird to him. Because it's how Harry would transport his satin dresses to other properties he owned and he said you know to be very clear like I never the children leave the house which by the way I haven't mentioned this get. His house just happens to be within a very easy walking distance of Kali Reserve and Leonel Beach now Hayden believes that the kids were buried at Harry's factory in what he calls a sandpit now here he's factory again very close to everything we're talking about. It was just a short drive from the beach. Does Harry have any resemblance to the sketch. Brett be resemblance. This is an canny. I WanNa send you this gift so we took a video that Australia's seven news made and we made it into a gift and and it is the sketch image. And then it kind of morphs into Harry's picture hang on hang on just a second year GONNA you're GONNA flip. Oh my God that is right eerie. Like obviously he's older than the sketch but he would be will exit. Here's a big Harry was forty eight in one thousand nine sixty six so it's a little bit older but he kept himself in really good shape and so he actually always looked much younger than he was. Honestly the easiest thing for me is the hairline is yeah. He's got that like dental forehead. The hairline spot on he does have kind of a long taste. Yeah and like big shapes the nose shape. This is creepy. We talked about it a lot. Where sketches look really really really similar to suspects but honestly I think this is the most accurate one I've ever seen especially for to me? You Know Ah. The sketch has like some prominent forehead in the long face but it also it can be kind of vague but my goodness is a close. So we're GONNA. I'll put put this gift on our instagram. If you guys need to see it you need to see it. A criminal podcast that on instagram. But despite all of the coincidences so far the South Australia police declined to get too involved. When Allan Stewart I get in touch and this is back in two thousand and seven? I mean Harry's been dead for years at this point points. It's not like they can really arrest him and they kind of like you know. We've got a ton of active cases to work on so according to the Satin Man Book. Police say that they've already ready. Reviewed their evidence and talk to Harry's widow which was his second wife and found that she's a dead end. But Allan Stewart decide to talk to her anyways waist now. She was Harry's housekeeper before they got married and also took care of him after his health started to really decline so she had a front row seat into his weird fetishes. Now I wasn't able to verify her real name like with the other people so I'll just call her normal like they do in the book so Stewart Arranges a meeting with Norma Arma who still lives in the same house in Glen L. and he goes to talk to her now right away. Norma does two things that he finds first first. She denies ever talking to the South Australia. Police and she brings up the Adelaide. Oval disappearances completely Lee unprovoked in relation to the Beaumont's. Now she's really friendly and welcoming though like happy to talk about Harry. Happy to show Stewart all over the house and and she takes him in the basement as part of their tour and he catches sight of something really strange down there a little wight children's purse. A purse would very much like the one Jane. Beaumont had the David. She banished so stewart. Asked her about the purse without necessarily mentioning. Why he's interested or or that it's connected? Jane and Norma gets kind of upset and says back just bought it at a thrift store which is kind of weird for a woman her age like they kind of point out that she's got a lot of means she's pretty wealthy like like. Why is she buying a child's purse at a thrift store? So they tell police about this but by the time police are alerted and they get to the house not they they are exactly norma claims to have thrown the purse away and it is never seen again. Okay that's so shady though like if you just bought it or bought it in general and it was just hanging around your house like why all of a sudden would you just pitch it. I mean that's exactly what I thought too. But without the pursed I though police are forced to return to seeing norma as a dead and yet again years pass Allan Stewart continue new their research and once the satin man is published in two thousand thirteen. Even more people come forward and once again this kind of stirs like all of the public interest. It's completely renewed and this time all the renewed interest like they actually have a person of interest in their sights and they can maybe now use. WHO's new technology to try and locate the children and this new technology reveal something that may finally thaw this cold case? The South Australian Alien Police used ground penetrating radar technology to search around Harry's old factory in Adelaide. The one that Hayden thought that he had buried the kids. Ah The search according to Nigel Hunt. The advertiser newspaper turns up an anomaly in the soil which can indicate that it's moved or that's something or someone is buried there so armed with that precise location police now get involved. And they excavate a one one square meter space in search of anything definitively tie Harry to the Beaumont children but like so many times before this dig turns up nothing. I like the families of these kids have just seen so much like hope. That's dashed and then hope that's dash like Do they have any family members around like their parents like this is fifty years out. Oh yes so. They're actually at the time that this happened. They're still alive and still in Adelaide and in fact. That's actually one of the reasons that police really start looking into Harry as a suspect because they wanNA give Jim Nancy some closure after all all of these years of waiting for the Truth and truth is kind of an odd thing though because even when it's hidden in the darkest family secrets like those of a man like Harry very it begins succumb out eventually so the allegations of his horrific sexual deviancy take on a new life in January two thousand eighteen when when Australian TV premieres a new feature called Seven News Investigates Beaumont Children. What really happened? And a woman who chooses to remain anonymous identifies Harry as the man who brutally raped her in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. When she was fourteen years old at the time she was living living with her family right near Harry's factory and she kept quiet for the same reason as Hayden and so many other sexual assault victims? She was shameful about what happened happened. She had a fear of him. Maybe fear that no one would believe her but again since Harry's dead all the physical evidence of sexual assault is long long gone. There's nothing for police to investigate. Really Her story just kind of corroborates that he wasn't a good guy but this the same seven news documentary does bring forward something that they can look into because a man named David who was a teenager back in sixty sixty six when the Beaumont's disappeared comes forward and tells the investigators or producers of this show that once he did a unique. The job for Harry David Says Harry hired him and his older brother. Robin to dig a hole at the castaway grounds behind the factory jury during that Long Australia. Day weekend just days. After Jane Arna Ingredient Beaumont had vanished now. According to David the whole was about seven in yards long about one yard wide and about as deep as a young boy is tall and he said it was located away way from where that two thousand and thirteen day had taken place now. They didn't think anything weird of this job at the time because they had no reason to doubt. Harry's like you know again awesome Nice upstanding citizen. He was paying them good money for their Labor but David said it wasn't until decades later when he saw that here he was on the news that he finally made the connection action to the Beaumont children so armed with his fresh information as well as a fresh location to search police. Archaeologists and forensic experts returned turned the old castaway factory Melinda Macmillan wrote for Newcastle Star in two thousand eighteen about the search team who had basically what they found was more soil anomalies. Right near where David said. He and Robin had doug back in sixty six. which makes sense? 'cause you know. Anomalies can show anything even digging and we know they dug their and right. So it's not a lot upfront. But at least enough to spark yet another excavation and before the dig police officially named Harry as a suspect suspect in the disappearance of the Beaumont children so on February second two thousand eighteen. The second dig at castaway begins. But but it's called off after less than twelve hours when investigators turn up nothing but some old animal bones Katie. Okay but that doesn't clear Harry like they've only dug a couple of places on his property. Yeah exactly and especially with this like mountain downton or at least a hill of circumstantial evidence. I think Harry is still a fantastic suspect. And I don't think they removed him from their suspect lists I. I have no doubt that he absolutely was a sadistic pedophile during his lifetime and the scars that he left on his victims are clear. But who knows if we'll ever get a one hundred percent clear answer about his possible involvement with the Beaumont's like like police still believe that the Adelaide oval disappearances are connected to the Beaumont kids so if Harry's responsible for one it's totally possible that he's connected to the other but so much time has passed memories memories fade and many of the people who encountered him including Hayden. Angela are now deceased Nancy. Beaumont herself passed away just a little bit ago.

Are you ready for property of the month. Yes I need a good profit of the month story okay so this one is about a hero puppet yes it wasn't submitted by a listener it was just us browsing the news and seeing appropriate beating some like they always are so this is about patsy and Patsy. Kelly border caller mix which I think we may have talked about before. Actually do you know my one son fact about copies. I no nothing okay. So what are the oldest dogs ever to be recorded Maggie. She was thirty when she passed away was account. But you have told me I didn't remember the breed but you tell me this every time I get really sad about Charley right. 'cause like I'm pretty sure our dogs are kelp is right like yeah. Yeah yeah the. They have all the characteristics of Australian herding dog. I think all three of our very different dogs. Yeah GonNa live so thirty so yeah. Kelp is all across the board. So patsy lives on a farm with her family in Core Young Victoria Australia and we talked about it earlier. Everyone is aware of Australia is experiencing these devastating bushfires ars that are claiming not only lives of people in the environment but also the amazing wildlife who live there as well as domestic animals but patsy is is out here and she's going to change that patsy has bravely heard something like nine hundred sheep out of the fires way into safety and even stayed with her owner Stephen Hill to help fight the fires as they come closer and closer to their home. Yet outta here. Are you crying like like very very close to cry. She's saving all the sheep. Puppets trumpets trumpets. Yes let's take them. A few sheep have have not made it but her owner Stevens said that there was no way he could've saved any of the sheep little loan how many eh they did without Hattie's bravery and smarts and just willingness to help when she's needed and like I literally have full body chills right now like I'm about to cry. I'm so inspired by patchy all the tree. She now has an instagram. Which of course I'm obsessed szeswith followed immediately? What is her instagram handle? It's Patsy the wonder of Koya on why and we're GONNA linked to our website because it's a long handle but I am obsessed with are there and there's like there's one that I literally just like wept at its video and like her owners like pay Pepsi look those sheep and then pans up to a bunch of sheep and in pans back to Patsy. That's all because if you pats you did it those are sheep and I'm not going to try and destroy accent because I'm going to the budget but like it tops. The Cherry on top of the entire video. I wept ugly honestly the way I looked hopping in with a small correction because I have not stopped trying to find her. Since you said it's Patsy. The wonder dog. She is is amazing. Her ear is amazing for days again. We're GONNA linked her instagram. Because I definitely messed it up because it's such a long handle but I'm obsessed but one of the Post said that patsy officially has front seat privileges for life. I for one think that is incredibly well. L. Deserve Great. I'm she's appropriate hero. I'm so happy. Yeah so again. Not necessarily listener proper up. That makes me proud to love. Props straps okay. So we talked about problem months patsy deviating but there are other dogs in Australia. Who needs homes? Especially during this time I would have right so I found an adorable prophet. And I'M GONNA be honest Ashley. I chose him one because he's from Victoria. which is where Patsy is from the Victorian dog rescue but to his name was too good to pass up? What is his name is Baggins? uh-huh pickersgill how can you not love him so I chose him for the name. He's Cooley which I had no idea about I had had to people. Do you know what they are okay for us. US folks they're basically a different kind of Australian hurting dog. Okay so they kind of look like an Australian shepherd or or blue heeler mix between that coolies. Love the name clues and Kelpie debase. The best dog bringing opportunity so I picked him up because of his name but then I read his profile and it was like meant to be had finish off this month with this so I read his profile and it states legend says Baggins was originally raised to herd sheep like his breeding suggests but he got surrendered because he was too kind to the sheep. Stop Stop It. I know and so he was adopted again by grounds men which is kind of like a landscaper for US people okay. And he was able to go to work with his person and just run around all day outside with his with US human. which is like I'm not getting no? I'm not getting happy because I know he's up option. And where does this go wrong. He lost his human tragically and never got to say goodbye. So he's a back up for adoption. Ashley I need you to stop crying because is it gets really cute soon. He's super social. He loves meeting new dogs in people and I wish I had a dog like this. He enjoys baths so much he like lays down and rolls around in the bath. No I just. I'm obsessed with so if you're in Victoria Australia or more specifically in and elster nick which I probably butchered. I'm so sorry and are looking for a new friend. Baggins and his friends at the Victorian dog rescue will link in our website. He's super super cute. I'm accessible BAGGINS. Someone's then he lost is human and everybody in Australia. We love you.
