Murdered: Mark Spencer – Source
Mark Spencer, 37, was horrifically murdered in the town of Coomera; which is only an hour from where the celebrities are battling it out for the 2014 I’m a Celeb crown, and locals believe the murderer is hiding out in a rural area nearby.
Detectives released CCTV footage of a dark coloured Ford Falcon that the attacker is believed to have driven off with, as they are currently searching high and low and wide on the Gold Coast for the vehicle. The Queensland police have admited they are no closer to finding the killer, and have no idea where he is hiding.
In another incident from only two weeks ago, a woman was found dead only ten minutes from the camp. Found discarded in a street in Murwillumbah, the body of Lynette Jones, 52, is now with a coroner in South Wales and her death is being regarded as suspicious.
An ITV source has iterated the importance of not only the celebrities, but also the TV crew and staff. Security has been stepped up following the two incidents,
“We have a security team on site. The safety and security of our celebrities and crew is of the utmost importance.”
