Homicide Squad welcomes $100,000 reward for information on the disappearance of Jessica Small
The Scorpion Pattern I have already seen.
Jessica was last seen in the Kelso area on 26 October 1997
Jessica Small was kidnapped at 12.40am on October 26, 1997, after she and friend Vanessa Conlon accepted a ride from Bathurst to nearby Kelso to visit friends.
She was the fourth young female hitch-hiker to be killed over an eight week period that year with Lee Ellen Stace, 16 and Lauren Barry, 15, and Nichole Collins, 16, all vanishing.
Bathurst Police have spent years trying to track the kidnapper who Jessica's friend, Vanessa, managed to escape.
The pair had been playing the juke box and chatting with friends at the Amuse-Me games parlour in Bathurst when they decided to visit friends in Kelso about 12.40am.
A man, driving what police believed to be a white sedan similar to a VK or VL Commodore, offered the girls a lift.
About 100m short of their friend's house the man stopped and assulted both of them.
Vanessa broke free and ran to a house to raise the alarm but Jessica was never seen again.
It had been just a five minute drive with a man neither of the girls had ever seen in Bathurst.
Orange is for magicK for protection. We find the colour was utilised within the car.
The head of Strike Force Carica II, Detective Sergeant Peter Smith, says new information about the car was received after witnesses were re-interviewed.
"The motor vehicle was a light coloured VK Holden Commodore with an orange blanket on the back parcel shelf and a number of holes on the front passenger footwell," he said.
"That's very significant information and we believe it's a very particular vehicle and those particular descriptions should jog somebody's memory."
Is this someone? Or is this the red herring?
While she is grateful to homicide detectives who recently unearthed a vital clue, that an Oberon timber mill worker was asking about Jessica at a games parlour the night she was abducted, she is bitter it took more than a decade for the information to surface.
They leave a link in the evidence. MA I found within the JFK assassination. MA means Grass.
Jessica Small, 15, disappeared in October 1997 after a night at the Amuse Me games arcade in Bathurst, in the state's central west.
Amuse Me? AM were the capitals...yet MA if we reverse was the pattern I found continually through the Private Investigation.
Co-incidence to this murder is again Superintendent Mike Willing.
The man had revealed he worked at the local timber mill in nearby Oberon, where 20 investigators set up camp yesterday with plans to stay ''as long as it takes''.
Detective Sergeant Smith said they would interview every male worker at the timber mill who, in 1997, was aged between 18 and 45.
The guy that came into the brothel was young. He said his father had been managing or the owner?
Jessica and Vanessa, also 15, hitched a ride from central Bathurst with a man - thought to be driving a white VK Holden Commodore sedan - to Kelso, just east of the town.
The man stopped the car and turned off the headlights just short of their destination, then grabbed Vanessa around her throat. While Vanessa broke free and was able to run to neighbours for help, Jessica was never seen again.
Jessica's mother, Ricki Small, said she had long suspected the man who took her daughter might have been a local.
''I've always had a gut feeling it might have been someone from around the Bathurst area,'' she said.
Interesting on this blog they link to Hayley Dodd and it is the pattern for which I could link them.
Could allegedly the car be a ex police car? Or was it an undercover? Even was it the right model?
When I researched the unsolved murders in this area I linked to Janine Vaughan missing person in 2001.
The Police Officer involved within this disappearance was the Police Officer at the Primia Facia of the case of Janine Vaughan.
Both of these are missing persons. No body has been found.
