Crime Stoppers to sift tip-offs
CALLS to Crime Stoppers after the murder of Toyah Cordingley have slowed but the daunting task of sifting through the torrent of information remains.
Cairns Crime Stoppers chairwoman Margaret Cochrane said the Brisbane call centre had been flooded with calls since Ms Cordingley’s body was found on Wangetti Beach on October 21.
She said “hundreds” of calls were made in the week that followed.
“This is certainly the most high profile incident the Cairns group has had to deal with,” Ms Cochrane said.
“We helped out after the Donna Steele murder – that one came to an end.
“Hopefully this will also have a result.”
She said the mountains of tips had to be collated and evaluated before the Cairns Crime Stoppers chapter could hit the public with further appeals for information.
The grassroots surge to help the investigation has been tempered with calls to let police to their work undisturbed.
Tomorrow, northern beaches residents will join the Wangetti Walk to search the beach where Toyah was found for further evidence.
