CLIENTS KEY TO MURDER – Saturday July 27 2013

– The boyfriend of murdered prostitute Tracy Connelly has paid tribute to his “beautiful angel”.
Tony Melissovas has spoken for the first time since Ms Connelly, 40, was killed last weekend in Greeves Street, St Kilda, inside a van the couple was living in.
“I’ve never loved anyone the way I loved her, and I never will. She was my soul mate. We fell in love from the moment we met each other.
“And I miss her so much.”
The couple had been in a relationship for 19 years.
Police are investigating whether a client was responsible for the death of the sex worker, known as Kelly, and have urged people who knew her in her professional capacity to come forward.
“We need to find out what happened here and those people can help us,” Detective Inspector John Potter, of the homicide squad, said.
“One of our avenues of inquiry is to look at potential clients of Kelly.
“At this stage we have not been able to identify anyone, but we need to clear anyone as much as anything.”
Police have established Ms Connelly was safe and well at midnight on Saturday.
Mr Melissovas found his girlfriend in the white Ford Econovan at 3pm on Sunday.
He is not a suspect.
The Herald Sun revealed prostitutes were warned about an aggressive man in a blue Commodore before Ms Connelly was killed.
Detective Inspector Potter said this was still a line of inquiry.
“We are speaking to other street workers. We are trying to get a sense of that particular individual,” he said.
“The street workers in St Kilda do have a good sense of who are the aggressive clients, if you will, and they are able to give us a bit of information with regard to that.”
Police are continuing to review CCTV footage and door-knock the area – Jon Kaila

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

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.
