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
