Po­lice launch new probe

Townsville Bulletin - - Just Briefly -

PO­LICE have launched a new in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a Melbourne wo­man’s dis­ap­pear­ance in far north Queens­land.

Kath­leen Mary O’Shea, 44, dis­ap­peared one year ago yes­ter­day af­ter ar­riv­ing in Ather­ton with her 11-year-old daugh­ter to at­tend the birth of her first grand­child.

But Ms O’Shea was not present at her grand­child’s birth in Jan­uary. She was last seen alive by her son on De­cem­ber 29 when he dropped her off at an Ather­ton ho­tel.

Her dis­ap­pear­ance was re­ported to po­lice on Jan­uary 13 and she failed to catch a pre­booked flight home to Melbourne on Jan­uary 17.

In­spec­tor John Har­ris from the Cairns po­lice said yes­ter­day that the fresh in­ves­ti­ga­tion would in­volve ‘a new team of de­tec­tives who weren’t on the orig­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion’.

‘‘They’ll re­view the en­tire file then they’ll com­mence rein­ter­view­ing a num­ber of peo­ple that have al­ready been in­ter­viewed and no doubt (make) fur­ther lines of in­quiry.’’
