Ex de­nies bomb is his

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - WORLD -

SPA owner Ildiko Kra­jnyak was open­ing a pack­age that had piled up with mail dur­ing her re­cent trip to her na­tive Hun­gary when it ex­ploded.

When re­ports of the blast reached Stephen Beal, her exboyfriend, Beal phoned po­lice and let them search his house.

They found more than 45kg of ex­plo­sives and charged him yes­ter­day – but not over the fatal ex­plo­sion.

Beal, a model rocket hob­by­ist, told in­ves­ti­ga­tors he had not made any bombs and did not have ma­te­rial for an ex­plo­sion as pow­er­ful as the one he saw in news cov­er­age.
