But­ter­worth in­quest drama

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

MORE dra­matic state­ments have been made in the sec­ond week of in­quest hear­ings on the dis­ap­pear­ance of Lu­cille But­ter­worth at a Clare­mont bus stop on her way to a New Nor­folk char­ity event in 1969.

Lance Rus­sell Lesage told the in­quest that he and a man called Bobby La­hey had picked up a woman at a bus stop on the Brooker High­way in the 1960s and later La­hey had told him to bury a body. The in­quest also was told of another per­son of in­ter­est, John Ga­mon Lon­er­gan, now dead, who had a record of sex­ual of­fences, some against women he picked up at bus stops.
