The Satin Man - Overwhelming Coincidences

The overwhelming coincidences are many and varied giving much room for thought . Over twenty co incidences that all point to one individual , Harry Phipps the Satin Man . All noted in the book , The Satin Man.

A large dossier containing all these co incidences had been sent to SAPOL by Mullins on several occasions .Together with his regular questions to Major Crime as to why a majority of people noted in the book the Satin Man had not been interviewed when so pertinent to this case.

Steve Van Aperen expert in the field of behavioural interviewing, reading body language and detecting deception stated Hayden Phipps is telling the truth but hiding more.

Coincidences below:

Harry Phipps

1. Harry Phipps allegedly rapes and sodomises a 14-year-old schoolgirl across from his Castalloy factory in the 1970’s . Haydn Phipps stated he was also sexually abused / sodomised at the hands of his father over many years when Harry was wearing satin made garments . This should put the other coincidences in perspective.

2. The description of the man seen at the beach with the Beaumont children January 26th 1966 fits the description of Harry Phipps the Satin Man .

3 . Jane Beaumont was given a pound note by the man she met at the beach . Harry Phipps the Satin Man was well known to give out pound notes in the 1960s.

Who was wealthy enough to part with such and amount so easily?

Note  : In the 52 years of this case (as of 2018) no other person of interest was ever known to hand out pound notes. Not one .The pound note was in SAPOL’s mind a pivotal piece of information as it has been over it’s 52 year history . Who was wealthy enough to part with such and amount so easily ? Harry Phipps the Satin Man was.

4 . Harry Phipps was regular beach goer at Colley Reserve Glenelg beach .

4b. The Satin Man Harry Phipps lived approximately 190 metres ( 207 yards approx ) from Colley Reserve Glenelg beach where the man was seen playing with the children  ( See Ariel view )  Harry Phipps  also lived approximately 200 metres from Wenzel’s Bakery where Jane Beaumont was last seen buying a large lunch with the pound note around 12 noon to 12.20 pm .

4c .When does Haydn Phipps the Satin Mans son see the children walk into his backyard  ? Around lunchtime. That is  no coincidence.

6. The Satin Man Harry Phipps had a grave size hole dug at the back of his factory at Plympton not far from Glenelg by then two teenage boys three days after the children go missing in January 1966. Once the boys dug the hole over the weekend they were then both paid in pound notes .Then told to “fuck off you little cunts and never come back.” Alegedly very similar use words used at Adelaide oval in 1973 toward Anthony Kilmartin an eye witness to Jo Anne Radcliffe and Kirsty Gordons abduction.

7. Hayden Phipps stated to Bill Hayes Private Investigator they are in the pit .The sand pit. Haydn stated to his ex wife Angela Fyfe , Stuart Mullins , his son Nick and to his cousin Peter: They are in the sand pit. Haydn also clearly stated to his son in 2000 .

They strongly felt something was eating away at him but they were unsure what.

8a By many that knew Hayden Phipps in the 50s 60s and onwards all say he hated his father with a passion so much so it was “palatable” but were never sure why.

11. Anglican Arch Bishop John Hepworth who fronted the Australian Royal Commission into child sex abuse . Where he told his story of him being abused in Adelaide /Glenelg in the 1950s by some señior clergy . On a hunch Mullins contacted John and simply asked did he ever know a Harry Phipps ? John paused and replied ” Yes but in pedofilic circles ” 

12. Elizabeth Daisy Phipps Harry Phipps 2nd wife contacting Angela Phipps Fyfe Haydn’s second wife. Asking her ” Is it true the boys were abused ? “. Angela answered she was not 100% sure.

What the experts think :

Duncan McNab ex NSW Police force . Investigator with Chanel 7 Murder Uncovered and other Television stations and a successful True Crime writer together with the exceptionally well qualified and respected Dr Xanthe Mallet Newcastle University Forensic Anthropologist and Criminologist state regarding Harry Phipps  :

The coincidences have moved to fact as far as we can see. All our eyebrows have been raised since we first chatted and have been ever since. As almost all serious criminal cases are circumstantial ( contrary to what TV detectives / lawyers assert ) and it’s the strength of the circumstances and volume that get us beyond a reasonable doubt. Harry Phipps combines many .

Disposition, history, the elegance of the location, the capacity to cover up (personal, social, political connections, stature etc), the fact he’s a sexual predator (anyone is fair game) rather than a paedophile, his kinks etc,- so much piles up. And there are the boys now men that dug the grave-size hole at the back of the factory – utterly honest, capable, smart. And the poor girl that was sodomised…as we mentioned earlier. Harry is a predator so gender/age preferences etc are secondary to opportunism and the need to dominate…hence the manner of this assault too.

There are many , many more coincidences in the Satin man book . Over thirty.

As of early 2018 SAPOL Major Crime has elevated Harry Phipps to a person of interest .

The wolf in relation to the Beaumont Children’s disappearance has never been too far from the door. These children never left Glenelg .The perpetrator was always hidden in clear sight.

Uncovering the Mystery of the Beaumont Children” was written due to a tip off. A tip off which resulted in ten years of investigation in which Whiticker and Mullins continued their hunt for the truth .The Satin Man book looks at a new potential suspect, a person of influence, money, persuasiveness and power . A family patriarch a man with a peculiar predilection for Satin may have been involved.A person hidden in clear sight
