  1. Why can’t the police re enact the bedroom that Mr Cruel used. The peach coloured verticals and peach coloured bed head. More info in that setting. Someone must know someone who had this in their house, and in the flight path of Melbourne airport, a friend, a neighbour or family member. Surrounding furniture stores in that area that may have sold a peach coloured bed head. I think more could be done.
