kieshas Abrahams body found stepfather and mother charged with her murder

Post  Justiceforallkids on Fri 22 Apr - 3:58


: Major development in Kiesha case
: Kiesha case: Police press conference

UPDATE: Police searching for missing Kiesha Abrahams have found a body, discovered near Blacktown shooting range.

Kiesha's mother Kristi Abrahams and step father Robert Smith have been charged with murdering the missing Sydney girl.

The six-year-old was reported missing from her bed at her Mount Druitt home in Sydney's west by her mother on the morning of August 1 last year.

Detectives in the early hours of Friday arrested a couple on a street near a bush reserve in Shalvey, close to Kiesha's home and an area previously searched by police.

Police say the 28-year-old woman and the 31-year-old man were arrested about 1am (AEST) and soon after both were charged with murdering Kiesha.

Meanwhile a crime scene has been established in bushland at Shalvey where investigations have intensified regarding Kiesha's disappearance.

Kiesha would have celebrated her seventh birthday on Friday.
The Mount Druitt community had organised a candlelight vigil for Friday night to mark Kiesha's birthday, outside her home in Woodstock Avenue, Mount Druitt.

why always "missing from her bed" in these cases?
is it to show how cared for and safe the child was?

is it to give the parents time (between her murder and the police alert) to clean things up - they have all night to do so?

I hope these people rot in jail for life.

'http://www.news.com.au/national/new-twist-in-hunt-for-missing-kiesha-abrahams-as-police-hunt-body-in-bag/story-e6frfkvr-1225915034033...THE search for missing schoolgirl Kiesha Abrahams took a bizarre twist yesterday, with a report that a body had been found dumped inside a duffle bag at a western Sydney park.

Police attending the scene failed to locate any trace of the remains but found what appeared to be a blood-stained shirt.

The unusual chain of events began at 4pm on Saturday when police received a call from a woman who claimed she found a duffle bag containing human remains near Cabramatta Creek in southwest Sydney.

When police arrived at the scene, there was no trace of the bag or a body. But, interestingly, police sniffer dogs reacted as if they smelled the scent of remains.

Yesterday, police carried out an extensive ground and air search at Edwin Wheeler Oval, Sadlier.

And now those responsible can be brought to justice, those who faced the cameras with their sad sad faces.

Post  Dimsie on Fri 22 Apr - 9:41

Very sad news about Kiesha, but not really unexpected (her death, I mean). The whole story about her disappearing from her bed, the unlocked door, etc. was just too fishy to be true IMO. The only positive thing is that her body has been found and arrests have been made. Poor little Kiesha, but at least in her case it looks as though justice will eventually be done.

Post  Dimsie on Fri 22 Apr - 10:30

It had looked like the trail had gone cold in Kiesha's case, but it just goes to show how the unexpected can happen, how it takes just one thing to blow a case wide open. Killers or others involved in the disappearance of children (or adults too) can never relax, thinking they're home and dry, because until the day they die they KNOW there is a chance of being found out. Who would want to live in that living hell? No wonder I once read an interview with a top American cold case detective who said killers generally admitted to a certain relief at being caught, because at long last the waiting was over and the worst that could happen had happened, ie the knock at the door had finally come.

Reserve

Post  catycat on Fri 22 Apr - 10:39

Just done arial map of the reserve and panned down to the toilet block and there below if are two twin tennis courts.

Now tell me that that is a coincidence as in the bush on this Reserve Kiesha was put in a bag and buried.

I am off to feel very very sick.
The last thing I wanted was to see tennis courts.

It is well known of the three sites of tennis courts on the Internet and the association with Madeleine playing tennis.

It says update tomorrow on how she was found in the Telegraph there.

Rightly or wrongly I think so too. I have said before and I will say again, the Mccanns have put many vulnerable children with unscrupulous families at risk. Whether we like to think it or not there are many people out there who would relish the thought of having money rather than having their children, they see on the news or read in the papers how the Mccanns have seemingly walked free of blatant child neglect and actually made themselves rich by doing so, either by having money donated to them or by suing anyone who dares to doubt them, and yes there are those will think if they can get away with it then so can I. I would go so far as to say I doubt these will be the last such cases.

Poor little Kiesha, so very very sad.

UPDATE 4.12pm: POLICE have found a shallow grave site and skeletal remains where they believe the body of missing girl Kiesha Abrahams is located.

Scores of officers are searching the area around the grave, which is in bushland at Shalvey, in Sydney's west.

Forensic officers have found skeletal remains at the site, but their identity is not yet known.

The mother and stepfather of the missing Mt Druitt girl were charged with her murder this morning, on what would have been her seventh birthday.

Kristi Anne Abrahams, 28, and Robert Terry Smith, 31, were arrested in a laneway in Freya St, Shalvey, at about 1am and taken to Mt Druitt police station to be questioned by homicide detectives.

They have since been formally charged with the little girl's murder and faced Parramatta Bail Court today.

Lawyer Alexander Reetov, representing Abrahams and Smith, told the court the mother was "immensely distraught'' and that both had requested not to appear by videolink.

According to court documents, police allege Kiesha was murdered between July 20 and July 27 last year - some days before it became public that she was missing.

The case will be heard again next Friday at Penrith Local Court.

The remains were uncovered at about 8am "at a number of locations'' on land off Stoney Creek Road.

"The remains, which have yet to be positively identified, will be taken to Glebe Morgue for forensic examination,'' police said in a statement.

"A post mortem will also be conducted to establish the cause of death."

However, the search of the bushland is continuing and police say it may go into the night.

"Suffice to say we will remain out there until we find what we're looking for,'' Detective Inspector Russell Oxford, of the State Crime Commander Homicide Squad, told reporters outside the court.

Officers from Strike Force Jarocin - formed to investigate Keisha's disappearance - have pursued thousands of potential leads over the past month.

Det Insp Oxford said investigators had "tremendous support'' from the local community along the way.

"It was simply the case that we never wanted to give up on this matter,'' he said.

He said it was a coincidence that charges were laid on Kiesha's birthday.

Members of the Mount Druitt community were due to hold a candlelight vigil later today to mark the birthday outside Kiesha's unit home in Woodstock Avenue.

Among those attending could be Kiesha's natural father Chris Weippeart, 27.

More than a dozen locals converged on Mt Druitt police station today to shout abuse at the pair.

Several officers were forced to go into the alleyway to control the growing crowd and stop them chasing after a paddy wagon.

Robert Smith's mother Rebecca is now in Mt Druitt hospital after experiencing chest pains early this morning.

Then-six-year-old Kiesha was reported missing from her home in Woodstock Avenue last August, and since then Ms Abrahams and Mr Smith have been interviewed by police on at least two occasions.

The pair issued a plea for information just days after they reported Kiesha missing, with a tearful Ms Abrahams begging people "anyone that's seen her can they please go to the police''.

Mr Smith also said during their appeal that he had no idea where his stepdaughter was, saying "If I had any idea we'd be there looking."

Meanwhile, hundreds gathered at a candlelight vigil in Sydney's west to remember Kiesha Abrahams.

On Good Friday, people visited the front of the home she lived at in Mt Druitt, placing Easter bunnies, stuffed toys and other items along the front fence.

By 5.30pm (AEDT), a few hundred people gathered, many of them mums with children, and lit candles.

The mood was sombre with a number of people crying during the event.

Comment: If you have time to read through the history of the Kiesha Abrahams case (see here) you will find many similarities to that of Madeleine McCann - both in terms of the alleged abduction, the parents subsequent behaviour and the reaction of family and friends.
