– A man wearing a striped hoodie is the prime suspect for the vicious murder of a mother of three last week.
Homicide Squad detectives hunting the killer of Kylie Blackwood say they are searching for a man seen wearing a grey striped hooded top, dark trousers, a black cap and sunglasses.
He was seen in Mccaffery Rise, Pakenham, where Ms Blackwood lived, about the same time last Thursday that she was murdered.
The 42-year-old’s 11-year-old twin daughters found her dead in their home about 3:40pm and ran to a neighbour’s house for help.
Detective Inspector John Potter said a tradesman spotted the man looking into homes in the street.
“He was described to us as behaving suspiciously and possibly looking into houses as he walked down the street,” Detective Inspector Potter said.
“This man was seen by the tradesman about midday, which is around the same time we believe Mrs Blackwood returned to her home, having been out that morning shopping.”
Detective Inspector Potter said it was possible the man was not involved in the murder.
But he could not be ruled out until he had been interviewed by detectives.
“It is possible Mrs Blackwood was not specifically a target. We’ve got to explore that, obviously. There’s nothing to indicate that,” he said.
Detective Inspector Potter confirmed there had been several daylight burglaries in the area over recent weeks.
“We’re attempting to draw some linkages to those. I don’t say there has been a spate of burglaries, but certainly there has been some,” he said.
Police are continuing to search for CCTV footage from surrounding streets, in the hope the killer may have been caught on video.
Detectives are yet to determine if anything was stolen from the house because Mrs Blackwood’s husband, real estate agent Peter Blackwood, has been too distraught to return there.
“They haven’t been back to the house. You can understand why. Mr Blackwood and the children are absolutely distraught,” Detective Inspector Potter said.
Police are also waiting on the results of forensic tests to see whether the killer left any DNA at the scene.

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.
