Police unravel timeline in alleged double murder case

Published

on

Police have reconstructed a detailed timeline surrounding the suspected double murder of Jesse Baird and Luke Davies, shedding light on the chilling events that unfolded last week.

Allegedly, a serving NSW Police officer procured an angle grinder and weights to aid in disposing of the bodies of Jesse Baird and Luke Davies.

Gunshots were reportedly heard in the vicinity of Mr. Baird’s Paddington residence around the time of the alleged murders last Monday, according to police sources.

Beau Lamarre-Condon, the accused, purportedly made “partial admissions” to a friend regarding his involvement in the shooting deaths, according to police statements.

Prior to becoming a police officer, Lamarre-Condon was a celebrity blogger

Yet to be found

Despite extensive efforts, the bodies of Mr. Baird, a former Channel 10 presenter, and his partner, Mr. Davies, a Qantas flight attendant, have yet to be located.

Police divers are currently combing a rural property with multiple dams in Bungonia, regional NSW, in search of evidence.

Since surrendering himself to authorities on Friday morning, Mr. Lamarre-Condon, 28, has not cooperated with investigators.

However, detectives plan to conduct further interviews with him today.

Moved the bodies

Police suspect that Mr. Lamarre-Condon may have relocated the bodies multiple times before turning himself in.

Assistant Commissioner David Hudson outlined the timeline pieced together by investigators.

Neighbors reported hearing gunshots in Brown St, Paddington, at approximately 9:50 am on Monday, February 19, which had not been initially reported to the authorities.

According to police allegations, Mr. Lamarre-Condon signed out a service weapon from Miranda police station four days before the purported murders and returned it the following day.

A triple-0 call was purportedly made from Mr. Baird’s phone around 9:54 am on Monday, but the call abruptly ended without any communication.

Furthermore, text messages were sent from Mr. Baird’s phone to his housemates the next day, indicating that he was relocating to Perth.

However, police assert that these messages were actually sent by Mr. Lamarre-Condon, Mr. Baird’s former boyfriend.

Angle grinder

Mr. Lamarre-Condon allegedly purchased an angle grinder and padlock from a local hardware store before driving to a rural property, where he is suspected to have transported the victims’ bodies in a rented van.

Police believe Mr. Lamarre-Condon returned to the rural property alone to move the bodies after suspicions arose regarding his friend’s knowledge of the events.

Additional purchases, including weights from a department store, were allegedly made in the following days.

The accused reportedly remained in control of the van and visited various locations, including a friend’s premises in Newcastle, before eventually surrendering himself to authorities.

Friends ‘didn’t know’

Assistant Commissioner Hudson disclosed that Mr. Lamarre-Condon had not disclosed his employment as a police officer to his friends, and there were reports of him using a key to access Mr. Baird’s home in the past.

An investigation is underway to ascertain how Mr. Lamarre-Condon retained possession of his service weapon for several days.

Commissioner Karen Webb emphasized that if the allegations against Mr. Lamarre-Condon are proven true, it represents a significant failure on the part of law enforcement.

Published

on

A man has been arrested after a bishop was stabbed at Christ the Good Shepherd Church in Wakeley.

Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel was preaching at Christ The Good Shepherd Church in Wakeley in Sydney’s west on Monday just after 7pm when a man dressed in black walked up to the altar and allegedly stabbed him multiple times.

Eyewitnesses described scenes of chaos and terror as an assailant approached the altar where Bishop Emmanuel was delivering a sermon.

Chstbrl Saliba, the Deputy Mayor of Fairfield, told Sky News that after the attack, the Bishop got to his feet, and placed his hand on the head of the assailant and began praying for him.

NSW Police said in a statement:

“A police operation is underway in Wakeley, following reports of a stabbing. Officers attached to Fairfield City Police Area Command attended a location on Welcome Street, Wakeley following reports a number of people were stabbed. Officers arrested a male and he is assisting police with inquiries.”

2GB Radio host Ben Fordham says the situation is so chaotic outside the church that police have had to use capsicum spray outside of the church. One woman has been treated.

 

Fordham says police are concerned about the volatile situation outside the church.

Without warning, the attacker unleashed a flurry of stabs, targeting the bishop and several worshippers in a frenzied assault.

Horrifying footage captured the moment of the attack, as the live broadcast on the church’s social media pages captured the unfolding tragedy.

Bishop Emmanuel’s expression of astonishment turned to one of sheer horror as he became the primary target of the assailant’s vicious blows.

NSW ambulance has confirmed at least one person has been taken to hospital.

The assault at Christ the Good Shepherd Church echoes previous instances of mass violence that have rocked Sydney in recent years, after six people were killed by a man at Bondi.
