Double murder baffles police

POLICE are still searching for clues following the baffling double murder of a security guard and his wife on the Gold Coast earlier this month.

Grief-stricken family and friends gathered at the Integrity Funeral Chapel in Parkwood on Wednesday morning to bid farewell to Alexander “Sandy” Davie and his wife, Sue, remembered by loved ones as a “beautiful couple” and a “hard-working Aussie family”.

The pair were murdered sometime during the Labour Day long weekend in early May, and their bodies found at separate locations - Sandy at a West Burleigh re- cycling plant where he patrolled, and his wife at their Robina home 10km away.

Police are still trying to figure out why they were killed, raising suggestions of possibly a bungled robbery or a case of mistaken identity.

The 61-year-old security guard's car was found burnt-out in an isolated spot at Springbrook.

Family members, in an emotional plea to the public last Thursday, said there was no motive for the killings and they were still suffering from shock.

Police on Wednesday confirmed they had received several phone calls in response to the public appeal, but have refused to say whether they were of any assist- ance.

A police spokeswoman said 30 detectives from Brisbane and the Gold Coast were now involved in the investigation.
