This abduction was a set up.Planned days earlier.
‘This abduction was a setup. The man at the beach was grooming the children days previously.
Why? After running up from the water’s edge the children lay out their towels next to where this man had already laid his……. This individual was waiting for them. They knew this man, hence after playing under the sprinklers they walked over to him ( not the other way around) All three willingly and happily they began playing games together.
The children were regulars to Colley Reserve and so to was this man.
As the children played under the sprinklers the man speaks to two sets of couples close by:
“ Did any of you people see anyone with our clothes? We’ve had some money taken from our clothes”.
Another witness stated the man said:
” Have you seen anyone messing with our clothes? Our money has been pinched.”
How did he know Jane had any money? He knew as he looked inside Janes carry bag while they play.
He needed bait to have control, so he took the children’s money.
With no money, the children were dependent on him. He is a nice man and able to assist them to return home. This is why the children happily walk in the opposite direction from their bus stop and the Bakery. He is the pied piper. They pick up their towels just after midday. Walk 90 metres to the change rooms and wait for him. Then to where and end up at Wenzel’s Bakery at around 12.25 pm ……this time Jane has a pound note. With no car, she must have received the money from a residence close by. Where does Phipps live?
Why no car. No car keys were spotted and no wallet. If he had a car this indicates he was from out of the Glenelg area. To collect the pound note by car in busy holiday traffic then return to Wenzel’s Bakery. This could not have been accomplished in the allotted time frame Therefore this man was highly likely a local. Again where does Harry Phipps live?
Why was he a local?.
The dotted square area below depicts how far Grant Beaumont could reasonably walk in approximate twenty minutes to a maximum 30 minutes window. This time frame is based on the children walking with this man in a northerly direction away from their bus stop and Wenzel’s bakery around noon. Waiting patiently for the man outside the change shed. Walking ( at a Grant Beaumont pace ) to collect the pound note and arriving at Wenzel’s bakery. Due to the time frame of around twenty-five minutes, the man must have lived within a three hundred metre half radius of Colley Reserve.Mullins with Bill Hayes and Whiticker believe these children did not leave the Glenelg area.
Those who say it cannot be done should interrupt the ones doing it
