Fifth person charged over death

POLICE have arrested and charged a fifth person over the death of former Grafton teenager Mitchell Voysey in Port Macquarie last year.

Police, armed with a search warrant, raided a house in Port Macquarie on Wednesday and uncovered evidence that provided a breakthrough in the investigation of Mitchell’s death.

Following the raid they charged the 26-year-old woman with being an accessory to murder.

She was bailed to appear in Port Macquarie Local Court on September 19.

They allege she was involved in the disposal of weapons used in the attack on Mitchell and a 20-year-old man last year.

Police told a local paper no weapons were recovered, but found enough information to significantly strengthen their case.

Mitchell died from injuries he received when he was hit by a car when fleeing from a brawl on the night of February 26 last year. He died in hospital the next day.

Three men and a youth were charged with manslaughter at the time.

They will face murder, assault and grievous bodily harm charges in Newcastle Court on October 24.

A local newspaper has reported police raided a house and searched beneath it using metal detectors.

Although they found no weapons, they say the raid uncovered information which has helped the investigation.

Mitchell’s father, Darryl Voysey, told The Daily Examiner the family moved to Port Macquarie when his son was 15 to help him pursue a butcher’s apprenticeship.

“He would be 19 and in the final year of his apprenticeship now,” he said.
