Auto Draft



An indepth examination of the Redacted Review finally received from QPS.

After 6 years, $’000, obfuscation, delay, and stalling by QPS they reluctantly releaed a redacted copy of the review.

You know, the one they leaked to Channel 7.

And it is clear why they have stalled so long.

More questions than answers.

TIME FOR AN INQUEST (which incidentally QPS also strenuously object to).


In 2009 The Crime & Misconduct Commission (CMC) furnished a report into Allegations of Misconduct by Queensland Police appropriately called Dangerous Liaisons. It is a very interesting and damning but lenghty (140 pages) read. There are many instances of “Removing Prisoners from Custody” discussed. One of the alternate suspects in the murder of Leanne Holland was “removed from custody” on numerous occasions by detectives. Ostensibly, it was to assist with ongoing criminal investigations. This suspect however bragged it was to spend conjugal time with his wife, and “go to the pub”. The detective involved in the Holland murder was then transferred to another police district and the removal of prisoners from custody continued at his next posting. Pages 70 – 82 of ‘Dangerous Liaisons” refer to activities investigated by the CMC relating to that matter where ‘The General’ as he was known had his own locker at the local police station. TheĀ  locker was marked “The General”. This man was serving life imprisonment for murder. He would be removed from prison, taken to the police station where he changed his clothes and released into the community for the day. Charges were laid against the detective but dismissed when his diary, which was part of the evidence, went missing. He later resigned from the police before disciplinary charges could be laid.



There has NEVER been a coronial inquest into the death of Leanne Sarah Holland. We believe an Inquest will help identify Leanne’s killer and we ask you to sign the attached petition.

To that end we are petitioning the Queensland Attorney General to order an Inquest into her death. The AG has previously refused applications by Graham Stafford and others to hold an Inquest. She deemed it was ‘not in the public interest’.

It is a requirement by law in Queensland that every unexplained death goes to the coroner. There is an ‘out’, usually where someone is arrested in relation to the death as happened in this case. Graham Stafford’s conviction for her murder was quashed therefore no one has been held accountable.



We recently had the pleasure of having Greg Cary on the Podcast. If you live in Queensland you would definitely know of Greg; and possibly if you live in Australia also. Greg had a career with radio 4BC spanning some 30 years. Whilst on radio he became aware of the Leanne Holland murder. He interviewed many people regarding the murder and subsequent investigation and jailing of Graham Stafford. One of the more notable callers to his radio programme was the jury foreman on the murder trial of Graham Stafford. Greg has release his memoir called “An Absence of Certainty”. He devotes one chapet to two crimes he followed during his murder career – The Holland murder was one of them.

I highly recommend his book. It is an excellent read. You can purchase the book at

Cost is A$29.99 postage included.
