Has an Aussie mystery finally been solved?


It was the case that sparked Australia's biggest manhunt. On Australia Day 1966, three young children: Jane (aged 9), Arnna (aged 7) and Grant Beaumont (aged 4), vanished from Adelaide's Glenelg Beach. It's presumed they were murdered but their bodies have never been found. Now, 52 years later, police are preparing to dig up the carpark of an Adelaide factory after an investigation revealed an anomaly in the ground.

I hope that this solves what happened to the children. Of course, it would have been better if they were alive.

Yeah it’s a shame that they can’t save the kids now and probably not even punish whoever if guilty, but at least they’ll have closure if this is the case.

Could they have been swept out to sea at the beach?

Re:


Several witnesses told police they saw the children playing with an unidentified man at a park next to the beach and the children later left the beach with this man. Around lunchtime, the children were seen purchasing food from a local bakery, which they paid for with a one pound note. However, their mother only gave them coins to pay for their bus fare, so where did they get that one pound note? The last official sighting has the children walking home alone around 3pm.

One of my thoughts would be that they made it home, but disappeared from there. Sadly, parents need to be weeded out as suspects.

To my knowledge, Mr and Mrs Beaumont were never regarded as suspects. At the time, it was considered safe and acceptable for children to travel without parental supervision.

Well, it was a different time. Not like this day and age.

Re:


In the decades following World War 2, Australia was seen as a happy and safe place to raise a family. Child abductions had never been heard of and even the hardest criminals said they'd never harm kids. Then it happened: Australia's first-known kidnapping for ransom. On July 7th, 1960, just over a month after his parents won first prize in the 10th Sydney Opera House lottery, 8-year-old Graeme Thorne vanished whilst on his way to school. Five weeks later, his body was found wrapped in a picnic blanket. Thankfully, Graeme's killer was caught and sentenced to life in prison, but so many other murder victims are still waiting for justice.


Tomorrow, police and forensic investigators will start digging at the Adelaide industrial site where they believe the Beaumonts may be buried. Let's hope they find something that can finally solve the mystery of what happened to these poor kids.
