Police ask step-father to show location of the body

Post  AnnaEsse on Thu 5 Aug - 15:42

The Herald Sun

Robert Smith said that homicide detectives had identified him as a suspect in the little girl's disappearance - and likely murder.

"Absolutely, they think I did it," he said.

Mr Smith, of Mt Druitt in Sydney's west, denied killing Kiesha, saying he loved her as if she was his own daughter.

Mr Smith said investigators "got tough" with him and demanded he reveal where Kiesha's body had been dumped.

He said police assured him they would "help him" - with counselling and care - if he disclosed what he had done.

"They said 'lead us to her body' and that sort of thing. It was pretty tough," he said.

Asked if he killed Kiesha, or if he had hurt her in any way that may have accidentally caused her death, Mr Smith denied it.

"There is no way in the world," he said.

Mr Smith, his partner Kristi Abrahams and Kiesha's father Chris Weippeart were all questioned separately by police the same night, but Mr Smith appeared to be the only person asked where the body was. "Kristi said they didn't ask her that," Mr Smith said.

Mr Weippeart said he was questioned about his relationship with Ms Abrahams, and asked to recall relevant dates since Kiesha was born.

Police denied they had given up hope of finding Kiesha alive and were searching for a body, despite divers spending most of the day scouring dams in outer suburban Marsden Park. "The longer it progresses, the graver it becomes ... but they are keeping an open mind," a police spokeswoman said.

Kiesha was reported missing on Sunday but had not been seen by the rest of the family since about July 7. Police confirmed they seized a vacuum cleaner, a computer and clothing from Mr Smith and Ms Abrahams' house.

A new lead and Kiesha's father defends himself

Post  AnnaEsse on Thu 5 Aug - 15:45

Sydney Morning Herald

The 'new lead,' is described in the video on the web site.

As police divers searched dams for the body of Kiesha Abrahams, the recriminations and accusations between the missing girl's separated parents boiled over.

Police said they had been told of allegations that Kiesha's father, Christopher Weippeart, pointed a gun at his daughter, her half-sister, Brianna, and her stepfather, Robert Smith, last month.

And the NSW Ombudsman has announced he will investigate the role of government agencies in the child's protection.

Kylie Marshall, a friend of Kiesha's mother, told the Herald the gun allegations had been reported to police only after the child's disappearance.

''Four weeks ago the father rode past on a bike when Robbie was out hanging the clothes on the line with the two girls, Brianna and Kiesha, and pointed a gun at them,'' she said.

But a spokesman for Mr Weippeart said he was at Nepean Hospital at the time, having his toe amputated. ''We don't want a trial by media; we've heard these allegations,'' he said.

Ms Marshall also alleged Mr Weippeart had not seen his daughter for five years and had signed court documents saying he did not want contact with her.

Her comments follow statements by Mr Weippeart that Kiesha had been bitten by an adult. Channel Nine reported last night that her mother, Kristi Abrahams, had been charged with assault over the incident, but had no conviction recorded against her.

Police also questioned Kiesha's stepfather. Mr Smith told News Ltd that they asked him to ''lead us to her body'' and said they would help with counselling if he co-operated. He said there was ''no way in the world'' he would have hurt Kiesha. He also said that police had not asked Ms Abrahams about a body.

Police searched quarries in Mount Druitt and bushland and dams in Marsden Park, where - according to a tip-off - a girl fitting Kiesha's description had been led away by a man on either Saturday or Sunday morning. The search is to continue today.

Community workers spent nearly an hour with the family last night.

The NSW Ombudsman's office has announced it will investigate the role of government agencies in the child's protection. It is an unusual move, as previous inquiries have occurred only after a child had been found dead.

The inquiry follows reports that at least three government departments - Community Services, Health and Education - had been involved with the girl.

The Ombudsman, Bruce Barbour, called for details of all files held by government departments. He said that in the light of concerns raised in recent days, he would be conducting inquiries into relevant activities by key agencies before the child's disappearance.

In the two key cases that led up to the 2008 Wood special commission on child protection services - that of Dean Shillingworth and the one involving the child known only as Ebony - both cases emerged only once the child had died.

The Herald reported yesterday that Kiesha had previously been removed from, and then returned, to her mother.

She was reported missing about 10am on Sunday. Her mother told police she had last seen her when she had been put to bed at 9.30pm.

Community Services Minister takes an interest in Kiesha's siblings

Post  AnnaEsse on Fri 6 Aug - 9:05

http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-national/burney-takes-interest-in-kiesha-siblings-20100806-11ltv.html

NSW Community Services Minister Linda Burney has admitted taking an interest in the welfare of missing Sydney girl Kiesha Abrahams' two younger siblings.

Ms Burney on Friday declined to comment on the search for the six-year-old, now entering its sixth day.

But she revealed she had looked into the welfare of Kiesha's two siblings, three-year-old sister Brianna and newborn brother Levi.

"The answer is yes, but I am very much being led by what the police are advising us at the moment," she told ABC Radio, when asked if she had paid a special interest to the children's welfare.

"I know that there is a great clamouring for information, but I am in a position, and I have to be responsible, about what I can say about this actual incident.

"People know that there is a homicide investigation involved and we need to be very careful and responsible about what we say."

Kiesha was reported missing from her home at Mount Druitt in western Sydney on Sunday morning, and is not believed to have been seen by anyone outside her immediate family since July 7.

NSW Ombudsman Bruce Barbour said on Thursday he would make inquiries into "relevant activities by key agencies" leading up to her disappearance, with reports surfacing the child and her family were known to several government bodies.

Ms Burney defended the state's child protection system, which recently had a $750 million shake-up, following recommendations of a 2008 special commission of inquiry.

The inquiry, headed by retired Justice James Wood, was commissioned following the shocking deaths of children Dean Shillingsworth and a girl known only as Ebony.

Under the changes, only children deemed at significant risk are now handled by the Department of Community Services (DoCs)

All other cases are managed by non-government organisations and government agencies within the health, housing, police and education sectors.

"I'm very confident with (the system)," Ms Burney said.

"It is a new system where there is a shared responsibility for child protection, not just with government, but also with family and the community.

"There is no child protection system in the world ... that is going to prevent every death - that is the simple reality that we all, both within the child protection system and in the public, understand."

Kiesha's stepfather Robert Smith, mother Kristy Abrahams and biological father, Christopher Weippeart, were all interviewed for several hours by police on Wednesday.

The bleak reality of Kiesha's life

Post  AnnaEsse on Fri 6 Aug - 18:52

The Australian

"SIX-YEAR-OLD Kiesha Abrahams, the missing Sydney girl, was by all accounts a "happy" child.

Quiet, placid at times, she could be bubbly and funny at others.

But step inside the block of flats in Sydney's west where Kiesha lived and the circumstances of her life couldn't seem more grim.

It's a place where windows are barred and broken, where the carpet moulders, where neighbours talk of covering their cars with a tarpaulin at night to stop the smash-and-grab of valuables.

One resident greeted The Weekend Australian this week with a shaking and iodine-stained hand, track marks climbing his arm like a termite trail.

The setting is every bit as bleak as the reports that have emerged since Kristi Abrahams told police her daughter had disappeared from their Mount Druitt unit last Sunday morning.

According to one media account, Kiesha was hospitalised as a toddler with a substantial bite wound - inflicted by her mum.

Another alleges her biological father, Chris Weippeart, once pointed a gun at Kiesha, half-sister Brianna and stepfather Robert Smith as they hung out washing. Mr Weippeart denies this.

She was also reportedly removed from her mother's care for a period by the NSW Department of Community Services, while police have confirmed she hadn't attended school for three weeks before her disappearance, and had barely been seen there at all this year.

With homicide detectives now joining the investigation, and police searching dams and bushland for her body, the worst possible news now seems the most likely.

But in this patch of Sydney's vast western suburbs, the shock of it is that people don't seem more surprised. There is genuine grief, a lot of rumours, and an apparent acceptance that life here can get very ugly.

"Our heart goes out to that little girl, but people just don't take it seriously when something bad happens around here," said Alexandra Wells, 16. "It's the slums, Mount Druitt. You just feel intimidated being here. It's happened before; it'll happen again."

Alex and friend Jessica Gray, 17, live in nearby St Marys and had come to light a candle at an impromptu shrine for Kiesha on the front fence outside her home. There are soft toys, flowers and countless cards and letters.

Says Jessica: "Someone needs to do something about this shit. All these housing commissions. The crime rate is so high. You'd never want to raise a child around here."

Wedged between Blacktown and Penrith, about 50km from Sydney's CBD, Mount Druitt and the surrounding suburbs stand as evidence of the nexus between inter-generational welfare dependence and social decay.

The local unemployment rate (for the Blacktown southwest area) was 13.3 per cent in 2008 - nearly triple the current national average of 5.1 per cent.

DOCS last year examined the relationship between child protection reporting in NSW and socio-economic factors and which communities had proved "resilient'' by reporting lower levels of child abuse and neglect than these factors would anticipate.

Metro-West, which includes Mount Druitt, was the only region found to be 100 per cent "non-resilient".

In other words, nothing holds back the tide of disadvantage from swamping the children in the area.

Which is not to claim, of course, that Kiesha was abused - let alone murdered. Her parents and stepfather have denied any involvement in her disappearance.

As of last night her fate remained a mystery. But a week after she was reported missing, the concerns are mounting."

A MYSTERY? Oh no, the Australian shouldn't have said such a thing - don't they know that when a child disappears and the parents claim she was abducted it's an 'actionable libel' for anyone to say the disappearance is a mystery? Well, that's what Carter-Ruck told Tony Bennett when he said Madeleine's disappearance was a mystery and I'm sure C-R, acting for the know-all McCanns ('I know more than you'), would never get it wrong. So the Australian can expect to be told the same by lawyers acting on behalf of Kiesha's family, assuming of course they've actually followed procedure and engaged top lawyers to deal with these pesky people who will keep throwing doubt on the claims of grieving parents whose child has mysteriously ... oops, no, not mysteriously, perish the thought ... gone missing.

New witness in Kiesha mystery

A witness has come forward with fresh information about missing Sydney girl Kiesha Abrahams, saying she saw the six-year-old near her Sydney home a week before she went missing.

Kiesha was last seen about 9.30pm (AEST) last Saturday when her mother, Kristi Abrahams, put her to bed at their Mount Druitt unit in Sydney's west.

It was previously thought she had not been seen by anyone, outside her immediate family, since July 7, about three weeks before she vanished.

But police on Saturday said they were investigating reports from a female neighbour who says she saw Kiesha with a relative near the Abrahams's home on July 23 or 24 - a week before she went missing.

Investigators are now appealing for anyone who may have seen Kiesha on or after those days to come forward.

Kiesha was reported missing last Sunday morning after her mother discovered her bed empty and the front door ajar, although it showed no sign of forced entry.

Detectives on Friday refused to confirm if they had any suspects following claims by the child's stepfather, Robert Smith.

Mr Smith said on Friday that police had accused him of killing Kiesha and had told him to "lead us to her body".

Mr Smith, Kiesha's mother and the girl's biological father, Christopher Weippeart, were all interviewed by police on Wednesday.

The search is continuing for the child.

Information can be provided via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Kiesha search ends, everyone a suspect
August 8, 2010 - 6:44PM

AAP

The air and ground search for missing six-year-old Sydney girl Kiesha Abrahams has been called off but anyone and everyone remains a suspect.

Police announced on Sunday that the massive search in areas around the family's home at Mt Druitt, in Sydney's west, has been suspended unless they receive new information.

Officers and volunteers have searched via helicopter and foot patrol, with divers deployed in local waterways, for the past seven days.

Strike Force Jarocin will continue to investigate Kiesha's disappearance, Detective Inspector Russell Oxford said.

"As far as nominating suspects and dealing them in or out, everyone's a suspect," Det Insp Oxford told reporters on Sunday in Sydney.

Kiesha was last seen about 9.30pm (AEST) on July 31, when her mother, Kristi Abrahams, put her to bed.

She was reported missing the next morning after her mother discovered her bed empty and the front door ajar, although it showed no sign of forced entry.

It was previously thought she had not been seen by anyone outside her immediate family since July 7.

But police on Saturday said they were investigating reports from a female neighbour who said she saw Kiesha with a relative a week before she went missing.

Detectives on Friday refused to confirm if they had any suspects following claims by the child's stepfather, Robert Smith, on Friday that police had accused him of killing Kiesha, telling him to "lead us to her body".

Mr Smith, Kiesha's mother and the girl's biological father, Christopher Weippeart, were all interviewed by police on Wednesday.

Mr Weippeart was taken to Mt Druitt hospital on Saturday afternoon vomiting blood and mucus, his mother Liz told The Daily Telegraph.

The type-one diabetic's blood sugar levels were erratic since his daughter's disappearance, Ms Weippeart said.

Det Insp Oxford question the family's decision to move into a motel, following the surge of attention outside their home by media and local residents.

"I wonder if Kiesha happens to walk home and who's there to wait for her," he said.

Investigators are appealing for anyone who may have seen Kiesha on or after those days to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Homicide cops looking at death of Kiesha's brother Aiden at 6 weeks old

Post  AnnaEsse on Sun 8 Aug - 16:35

The Herald Sun



POLICE will today widen their investigation into the disappearance of Kiesha Abrahams by focusing on the death of her brother, who died when he was a baby.

Homicide detectives yesterday confirmed they would look at the case of the baby Aiden Abrahams who died in 2002 from an apparent cot death.

The infant boy was just six weeks old.

Aiden was the first child of Kristi Abrahams and Chris Weippeart and was born about 16 months before the couple's second child Kiesha.

"Looking at the death of the first child to see exactly what happened will be part of the investigation," Detective Inspector Russell Oxford said.

A relative told The Daily Telegraph Ms Abrahams found the baby dead in his bassinet one morning.

It is unclear what the outcome of the post-mortem examination was, or who determined the cause of death.

Since a neighbour came forward late last week claiming to have seen Kiesha with her mum on about July 24 or 25, police have been able to narrow the time period in which she was last sighted, with just a week in which she cannot be accounted for.

"We've got a gap of a week, and we need to find out what happened from when the neighbour saw her, to the time she was reported missing," Insp Oxford said.

Meanwhile, the community in western Sydney marked one week since the cute girl vanished by holding a balloon-releasing ceremony.

About 100 people gathered in the park beside the home from which Kiesha disappeared and vowed tokeep her memory alive until she was found.

"Kiesha baby, we will not forget you until we have you back," friend Natalie Simmons said as she let go of the pink balloon.

The little girl's parents did not attend, remaining in emergency accommodation organised for them by the Department of Community Services.

Motorists were yesterday shown a recent image of the girl and asked if they had seen her any time before last Sunday or even wandering away from her home.

The photo, taken on July 7 when Kiesha met her new baby brother at hospital, shows the pretty six-year-old smiling as she eats a bag of chips."

Forensic police take items from Kiesha's unit
ABC August 9, 2010, 4:26 pm

*
*


Police forensic officers have this afternoon removed items from the unit where missing western Sydney girl Kiesha Abrahams lived.

The Mount Druitt home has also been cordoned off with police crime scene tape.

A police spokeswoman says the items have been removed for further investigation.

She refused to say what items were removed but television footage shows several large items being taken out, including what appears to be a roll of carpet and a mattress.

The six-year-old was reported missing by her mother more than a week ago.

Senior police have refused to rule out the girl's parents as suspects in her disappearance.

It has also emerged that before Kiesha Abrahams was born, her mother had a baby boy who died when he was six weeks old.

A spokeswoman for the Coroner who investigated the death of the boy says there were no suspicious findings.

The spokeswoman says the file on the inquest is closed to the public.

Detectives say they are looking at the death of the boy as part of their investigation into Kiesha's disappearance.
Anyone with information on the girl's whereabouts can contact police via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

poor little girl.

It seems pretty clear which way this is all going, and it just goes to show that even with what appears to be such an open and shut case, the Police have to take their time and really tread carefully before they can make arrests.

The fact they are openly saying that they're linking the little boy's death to this latest incident speaks volumes. I hope they can solve the case soon.

Forensic police have sealed off Kiesha's home

Post  AnnaEsse on Mon 9 Aug - 17:35

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/7942310/forensic-police-examine-kieshas-home

Forensic police are now focusing on the family home of missing girl Kiesha Abrahams.

Officers entered the western Sydney apartment, which has been surrounded by crime scene tape, early this afternoon to re-examine the home.

Kiesha lived in the apartment with her mother, stepfather, three-year-old sister and newborn brother.

Her mother Kristi said she last saw her six-year-old daughter when putting her to bed on the night of Saturday, July 31.

The apartment has been empty since Kiesha's family moved out late last week. They are reportedly living in a motel.

A group of locals has gathered outside the house in front of the apartment block as police continue their re-examination, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Police have also been re-investigating the death of Kiesha's baby brother Aiden, who died in 2002, aged six weeks, from apparent cot death.

"Looking at the death of the first child to see exactly what happened will be part of the investigation," Detective Inspector Russell Oxford said. "

Video on the web site where a reporter states that pieces of carpet, amongst other things, have been removed from the apartment.

Witness says he saw step-father whacking Kiesha in the face

Post  AnnaEsse on Mon 9 Aug - 19:04

http://www.news.com.au/national/kiesha-ran-away-after-stepfather-seen-smacking-her/story-e6frfkvr-1225903160022



A DRAMATIC second raid was made on the home of missing girl Kiesha Abrahams yesterday after police received fresh allegations.

The Daily Telegraph reports homicide detectives and a team of forensic police wearing blue jumpsuits arrived at the family home in Woodstock Ave, Hebersham, armed with floor plans for the unit about 3pm.

They emerged carrying internal doors, skirting boards, rolls of carpet, and what appeared to be a child's mattress.

The first police search of the home began on Monday last week and the unit was sealed off as a crime scene until Wednesday.

At the weekend, Keisha's mother Kristi Abrahams and stepfather Robert Smith attended the home to collect fresh clothing.

The pair reported Kiesha, 6, missing on August 1, and said they had last seen her when they put her to bed the previous night.

The couple remain with their newborn son Levi in accommodation at Parramatta organised for them by the Department of Community Services.

Police would not elaborate on what new information they had received, other than to say it was "significant to the case".

Detectives interviewed western Sydney man, Albert Lafaele, after he claimed he saw Mr Smith punching Kiesha outside the Hebersham Friendly Grocer store two or three weeks ago.

"I was shocked. I walked past a white car and I saw this man whacking his child in the face," said Mr Lafaele, who runs weekend markets next to the supermarket.

"The girl was kicking and screaming, so I stopped in front of the car and told the man to hit me instead, which gave Kiesha a chance to jump out of the car."

Mr Lafaele, 46, said he realised the child was Kiesha after seeing her photograph.

"I'll never forget her curly hair and those eyes," he said.

"I know it's taken me a few days to come forward but I wanted to make sure 100 per cent that it was her before I said anything."

Police are still trying to determine the veracity of the report.

Hebersham Friendly Grocer owner Peter said Kristi Abrahams and Robert Smith were regular shoppers at his store.

A psychic has also described to police a vision of Kiesha in bushland behind Amelia Way at Bidwell.

The bush is a dumping spot with couches and old clothes littered throughout the grass."

Sorry if this has been mentioned already, but is it known if the police have used sniffer dogs in this case, in Kiesha's home, I mean? I'm sure they have cadaver and blood dogs available and with the way the police suspicions seem to be directed the dogs might be very useful.

Poor little Kiesha, if that report about her being hit in the face is true. How horrible.

Dimsie, I haven't seen any mention of dogs, but since they are used so regularly by police forces throughout the world, that has surprised me. The police were removing interior doors, bits of skirting boards and rolls of carpet. So, maybe they've just been in there with the Luminol.

It's not sounding too good, is it.

It's not, is it? It's so sad that some children spend a good part of their lives being abused and then just discarded, which I think is what had happened to that lovely little girl with the beautiful eyes and flowing curls.

Thanks, Anna. Yes, the removal of certain articles from the home sounds as though the police maybe want to do further examination/tests on them.

We don't know yet what happened, of course, but the signs don't look good. IMO there's been something odd-sounding about this case from the start, a feeling of deja vu maybe?

The McCanns have been awfully quiet on this one. Have they offered to put Keisha's face on a poster? Sent a message of support to Keisha's family? Wasn't Madeleine meant to have been spotted in Australia? For all they know, the same predator might have snatched them both. Yet they have stayed well clear. Funny, that.

Yes, it seems on the face of it very odd that the McCanns wanted to associate themselves with other cases of missing children at times, but as far as we know haven't commented publicly on this one. Of course they may have sent a private message of support to Kiesha's parents; no doubt we'll hear about if eventually, if they did, especially as the two cases seem to have so many similarities. I would expect them to say that they understand the trauma the parents are going through and to sympathise with them, both for the loss of their daughter and the unwarranted suspicions of them by the police and public. Grieving parents must NOT be suspected, the police must take their word for everything, no one must call a child's disappearance a 'mystery' if the parents have said she was abducted - that would about cover it, I think.

A psychic trying to find a missing six-year-old girl in Australia has discovered a woman's torso in bushland. Skip related content
Related photos / videos Psychic Looking For Girl Finds Adult Remains Enlarge photo The woman alerted police to the area in Sydney's west because she had a premonition about Kiesha Abrahams - the youngster who was reported missing 12 days ago.

A dismembered body was found near the edge of Eastern Creek at Doonside. The head, arms and legs are still missing.

The psychic told officers she had a feeling they would find something of interest in the area, especially relating to Kiesha.

"It's quite interesting that there's a woman and she had a sense or feeling it was worth her while to come to this particular part of the park," said Detective Chief Inspector Pamela Young.

"We're still exploring that, it's certainly an interesting proposition of hers."

A post-mortem investigation on the torso is under way and police believe it could be that of a woman missing for almost two months.

Officers are said to be contacting the relatives of Kristi McDougall, missing since June 19.

She vanished after telling friends she was on her way to the Ermington area of Sydney.

Kiesha was last seen by her mother Kirsti at the family home in Mount Druitt, western Sydney.

Mrs Abrahams and her partner Robert Smith have both been interviewed by police and deny any involvement in her disappearance.

Detectives investigating the case have said they were treating all the young girl's immediate family as suspects.

Kiesha mannequin displayed in bid to jog memories

Kiesha doll to jog memory
Police dress a mannequin in the exact clothing worn by missing girl Kiesha Abrahams to elicit more information from the public.

A mannequin dressed in the clothes Sydney girl Kiesha Abrahams was reported to be wearing when she went missing has gone on display in a bid to spark someone's memory.

Police hope the likeness of the six-year-old will jog the memory of anyone who saw her before or after she disappeared on August 1.

They said the last time anyone outside her immediate family saw Kiesha was on July 24 - a week before her mother reported her missing.

Dressed in pink pyjamas patterned with dogs and bones and a purple jacket, along with a wig, the mannequin was displayed outside the Mount Druitt apartment where Kiesha went missing.

Seven kilometres down the road from the unit, police are continuing to search the Nurragingy Reserve at Doonside for the little girl.

Police divers have today joined the search of the 90-hectare reserve which is now in its third day.

Officers yesterday found a shovel hidden under a boardwalk in the reserve and will again focus on that area today.

"The information that's been coming in has been tremendous," Detective Inspector Russell Oxford said.

"We're looking at about day 17 I think now and we're not going to give up."

A woman's torso, believed to be that of missing mother Kristi McDougall, was found in the reserve last week. Police are also on the lookout for further body parts.

I'd been wondering what was happening in this case, as all seemed to have gone rather quiet. I don't like the sound of that shovel hidden under the boardwalk - why would anyone hide a shovel? Might be a good idea to bring in at least one cadaver dog to have a good sniff around in that particular area, if they haven't already done so.
