Informant: Some mysteries solved and some questions unanswered | The Canberra Times


When things end, we always hope that the end will answer any questions we might have. Well, this week is coming to an end, but it seems we are no closer to having answers in William Tyrrell’s survey. The investigation into the disappearance of the three-year-old boy in 2014 has entered its fourth day today and police have uncovered possible evidence this morning. A piece of light blue fabric measuring about 8 cm by 8 cm was sent away for forensic analysis with results expected to last up to three or four business days. Detectives are also expecting results from further possible evidence found earlier this week. Meanwhile farmers in the central west of the state are preparing for answers as wet weather threatens to destroy their crops for the second time in five years. Normally farmers would rejoice with heavy rainfall after years of drought, but floodwaters in the Forbes region of central NSW continue to rise. One farmer said the floods they now see are “just the beginning of the flood that is coming”. However, we have received some responses to what happened when northern NSW boy Anthony “AJ” Elfalak disappeared on his family’s property in Hunter state earlier this year. The boy was happily located alive just days after he went missing, and police determined AJ’s disappearance “to be as a result of a mishap”. Another mystery was also solved today. The previously unknown soldier, whose body was recovered after the sinking of the Australian battleship HMAS Sydney II 80 years ago now has a name. He was identified as Able Seaman Thomas Welsby Clark of Brisbane. His body was the only one recovered after the ship sank off the west Australian coast in 1941. Navy Chief Vice-Admiral Mike Noonan said “his long voyage is complete for him to rest in peace”. However the biggest question of the day is why is Prime Minister Scott Morrison continuing to make the launch of the COVID vaccine more difficult than it should be? At first it was not a race, and now he is accused of undermining the launch after demanding for the removal of Queensland’s vaccine mandate when the state reaches 80 per cent coverage. Deputy Labor leader Richard Marles has accused the coalition of choosing to fight with workers’ states, AAP reports. “This undermines the vaccine launch that is happening in WA and Queensland,” he said. “The prime minister did not say this in relation to NSW.” That’s awkward considering unvaccinated people in NSW still face more severe restrictions than those who have had both stings. Very awkward indeed. Did you know that you can receive this daily summary by email? Register here THE NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW:
