Toyah ‘trolls’ force security upgrade on social media
AN appeal for information into the murder of Toyah Cordingley could soon be in the Port Douglas and Mossman region.
Honour Toyah group founder Bronwyn Farr told the Ga- zette they were investigating putting signage on the highway north of town in the hope someone might ‘crack’.
“It might take someone to keep driving past these billboards 30 times, and on the 31st time they might crack and provide information,” she said.
“We are looking at our options far and wide and have held discussions. We think it’s important to get the message out in the Douglas Shire.”
It comes as Ms Farr confirmed the Honour Toyah Facebook page, which has more than 13,000 followers, has upgraded its post security due to ‘trolls’.
The group has just secured space for new billboards to be erected at the southern carpark of Wangetti Beach, not far from where Ms Cordingley’s body was found by her father, Troy Cordingley, on October 21. Mr Cordingley released a statement this week where he described the impact of the horror incident.
“Toyah is my only child,” he said. “Finding her body has burnt an indelible image in my mind. I feel lost and empty inside but will always have the wonderful memories of those 24 years … 24 years, she should have had so many more.”
Police are continuing to conduct a full and thorough investigation to identify Ms Cordingley’s killer. They say there are no updates into the investigation ‘at this stage’.
