Murder victim's identity stolen, mobile used after death

MURDER victim Karlie Pearce-Stevenson's bank account was used to access $90,000 and her phone used to contact family to make it look like she was still alive, police have revealed.

The woman's bank account was accessed on hundreds of occasions after she was last seen alive in late 2008, Detective Superintendent Des Bray of the Major Crime Investigation Branch told reporters in Adelaide.

Ms Pearce-Stevenson's remains were found in the Belanglo State Forest in New South Wales in 2010.

Her daughter Khandalyce's remains were found near the side of a highway at Wynarka in South Australia earlier this year.

"People we believe may be the offenders and others have taken over Karlie's identity, her telephone, her bank accounts, her Centrelink and family payments," Det Supt Bray said.
