Toyah ‘trolls’ force se­cu­rity up­grade on so­cial me­dia

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Mark Mur­ray

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’.
