"Comments on your site about my book, Killing Juanita,
have been drawn to my attention.
I am rather surprised
that you have chosen to give publicity, without having read the book, to views that are based on pure fantasy. [EAS: we happily
defer to other more expert writers, we haven't read his book for time, no gratis review copy]
I’m perplexed by
the suggestion that my book is based on a false premise [a term EAS have deleted from a picture caption as indeed too loaded] to
benefit the NSW police. Nothing could be further from the truth.
If you had read the book
you would realise this.
If you had read the book,
you would have noted that I reveal a scenario whereby the cover-up of Juanita’s murder went to the very top of the NSW
police – that is, the police commissioner himself.
As to suggestions that
Juanita was not killed because of her opposition to Victoria Street, and that evidence exists to prove this, I think it would
be beneficial to produce such evidence, or else spare your readers from this fallacy.
Alleged dossiers on corruption
that Juanita was alleged to have had DO NOT EXIST.
They never did. Juanita’s
partner, both business and personal, David Farrell, never saw them. According to David, they discussed everything that she
was doing in relation to her activities, yet she never mentioned them to him. Why have they not turned up?
This was, I suggest, a
red herring that served the killers well. It took the focus away from them and Victoria Street, and away from the Carousel
Cabaret where she disappeared.
Likewise the allegation
that she never went to the Carousel Cabaret but to the Lido, which was another club close by, was also a claim that benefited
I find it amazing that
some people who should know better appear to have a vested interest in not wanting this crime solved, but rather to justify
old discredited theories they’ve clung to for far too long.
I have spent the past
30 on this case, conducting my own inquiries with Arthur King, who was himself kidnapped in Victoria on behalf of the developer
Articles we wrote led
to the federal Parliamentary Joint Committee on the National Crime Authority to conduct a long inquiry into the relationship
between the National Crime Authority and James McCartney Anderson, the manager of the club where Juanita disappeared, and
friend of the late developer Frank Theeman, against whom she was principally campaigning in Victoria Street.
Their report makes interesting
reading. After considering a vast volume of evidence and interviewing many of the people involved, the committee reached a
similar conclusion to mine.
(The National Crime Authority
and James McCartney Anderson report is available via:
I recommend it for a good
understanding of this case.)
The evidence and witnesses
that I uncovered during my inquiries forced the NSW police to reopen the investigation last year.
Apart from Jim Anderson
who organised the killing for the benefit of Frank Theeman, others involved are still alive.
Rather than sniping from
the sidelines, I think it would be a good idea if everybody who is interested brought pressure on the NSW police to solve
this scandal instead.
