Murder in Gympie, Australia

    My half sister Lisa Rebecca Daly was murdered in Gympie, Australia in the mid 90s and I'm struggling to find any information about it online.
    I live in New Zealand and I was only around 9 at the time.
    Not much was told to me by my parents so I feel very much in the dark about what happened.
    A man was charged over it but that's all I know.
    If anyone might have some leads for me I would be so very grateful.

    Thanks

    Hi @DexterNZ Welcome to Crimewatchers! So sorry that it is under these circumstances. Very sorry to hear about your half-sister.
    I did a quick search and could not find anything either. :( But we do have some members very good at finding things online. Hopefully they will swing in here and give it a look.

    @summerbreeze seems to be able to find needles in a haystack! Next time she comes by, perhaps she'll see this thread.

    Hugs to you in the meantime, @DexterNZ .

    that would be amazing. I'm running out of ideas. I even emailed a couple of newspapers to ask if they had anything tucked away but unfortunately they won't even reply. this forum is probably my only hope now.
    thanks for your help

    I'm still searching for answers.
    I don't think I'll find them to be honest

    Any way you could call or visit or email the local police and request info? I'm not sure about the laws there but it's been over 20 years... Something like a public records request?

    Would you happen to know the name of the person charged? The location where charges originated would also be a good place to seek further details.

    I have spent quite some time searching for any information about this case however to no avail. If your half sister was a minor at the time this could also be a reason why her name isn't published publically.

    If anything, know you're not alone and we will continue to search for answers.

    Not a minor. I think she was in her late teens.
    all i know about the man who was charged was that he was a local to the town and that he possibly had some mental issues.
    a day or two after he killed her he actually returned to the scene with his brother who knew nothing about it and 'discovered' her body then contacted police. didn't take them long for a confession.
    he's most likely free now.
    Gympie is a small town in Queensland. the local police don't even have an email contact.
    gympie times editor hasn't replied to me either.
    so frustrating. also she was cremated so no cemetery records

    Would you know if there was an autopsy done before her cremation? A coroner would have to sign on her death certificate. Have you tried to email the Coroner's Court? https://www.courts.qld.gov.au/contacts/coroners-court# The death certificate should have been filed in court documents as well.

    Also, the offender, if released, may be a registered sex offender too. I don't know details surrounding the crime however it's also another source for information.

    think I'm at a dead end now
