No leads in mystery Whiporie deaths

By TOBY WALKER

ALMOST a week has passed since two charred corpses were found in a burnt-out car in the Banyabba State Forest near Whiporie, and still the discovery remains a mystery.

Yesterday Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) Jason Breton said investigators were still waiting on the results of a post mortem carried out in Sydney.

He said police could be waiting anywhere between one week and a month to get some conclusive results.

The next stage of the investigation appears to hinge on what the forensic tests on the bodies turns up. DCI Breton said there was nothing else to go on.

"All we've got is charred remains at the moment," he said.

"This (investigation) will be very slow.

"We've just got to find out who they are first."
