Sus­pect in bath death

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NATION -

PO­LICE be­lieve one per­son is be­hind the sus­pected mur­der of a Mel­bourne mother, who lay undis­cov­ered in her bath­tub for eight months.

Sarah Gatt’s body was found by po­lice in her Kens­ing­ton unit on Jan­uary 3, and they be­lieve the one-time as­pir­ing model, 40, died in the four days to April 24, 2017, fol­low­ing a pro­longed as­sault in her home. In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve one per­son is be­hind the mother-of-four’s mur­der, with oth­ers in­volved in hid­ing the in­ci­dent and ob­tain­ing fi­nan­cial ad­van­tage from her death. CON­VICTED drug mule Cassie Sains­bury has is­sued a warn­ing for po­ten­tial drug run­ners to think about the con­se­quences of their ac­tions.

“Peo­ple need to re­ally, re­ally analyse the peo­ple they think they can trust,” Ms Sains­bury told the Kyle and Jackie O Show yes­ter­day.

“You might think you can trust them, but they can be a com­pletely dif­fer­ent per­son.”

The 22-year-old de­scribed the Colom­bian jail, where she is serv­ing a six-year sen­tence for at­tempt­ing to smug­gle co­caine out of the coun­try, as “not fab­u­lous” but bet­ter than other parts of the jail.

“My sit­u­a­tion has not been easy through­out this whole process, but I have had a lot of peo­ple in­side the prison help me see that it is not the end of the world,” she said.

Sains­bury, from Ade­laide, was caught with 5.8kg of co­caine at Colom­bia’s El Do­rado Air­port in April 2017. She was ar­rested and is de­tained at El Buen Pastor jail in Bo­gota – a prison no­to­ri­ous for its over­crowd­ing. She could be re­leased in April 2020.
