SUSPECT IN THE GUN – Wednesday July 17 2013

– A veteran armed robber has emerged as a key suspect in the murder of gangland figure Graham Kinniburgh.
The bandit, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been under scrutiny over the murder of Kinniburgh outside his Kew home in 2003.
Organised crime detectives yesterday announced a breakthrough when they seized a Hyundai car believed to be linked to Kinniburgh’s death and the disappearance and suspected murder of Melton man Terrence Blewitt.
It will be forensically examined to check for evidence Blewitt was killed inside.
Blewitt, who was connected to Melbourne underworld figures, disappeared in April 2004, five months after the death of Kinniburgh.
Kinniburgh, known as The Munster, was killed after arriving at his family home in Belmont Avenue after a night out.
Kinniburgh was an associate of other murdered Melbourne crime figures including Mario Condello and Lewis Moran.
The car confiscation came as police announced a $100,000 reward for anyone able to help solve the Kinniburgh murder.
The violent career criminal allegedly implicated in that killing was an associate of former crime boss Carl Williams, who is suspected of ordering the Kinniburgh hit at the height of Melbourne’s gangland war. The man was involved in a succession of major Melbourne armed robberies in the 1990s.
The bandit, who lives in country Victoria, was once caught with the registrations of cars used by Victoria Police detectives.
In the past he has been charged with kidnap, blackmail and breaching parole.
Police said the person who owned the dark blue Hyundai Excel at the time of the Kinniburgh and Blewitt cases had been uncooperative.
Its current owner, a woman from Alexandra in country Victoria, is not under investigation.
Detective Acting Inspector Stuart Bailey, of the Purana Taskforce, said the car was tracked down by Purana detectives as they prepared to put together inquest briefs on unsolved gangland killings.
“We certainly believe Terrence Blewitt has died and there are two possibilities. He’s either been murdered or has died as a result of an accident, and we believe whatever occurred, occurred in that vehicle,” Inspector Bailey said.
He said he was confident an examination would find traces of blood and DNA in the car.
One theory under investigation is that Blewitt was in some way involved in the Kinniburgh murder, in which the shooter escaped in a dark blue Hyundai.
Blewitt was last seen by his partner as he walked towards a dark blue Hyundai on the corner of Lachlan and Hume Streets in Melton at 2:20pm on April 12th, 2004.
The woman reported Blewitt missing when he failed to return home the next day – Mark Buttler & Samantha Landy

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
