Circumstantial Evidence


There are over ten pieces of circumstantial evidence linking Harry Phipps to his alleged abduction of the Beaumont children.

1. Phipps allegedly rapes and sodomises a 13-year-old schoolgirl across from his Castalloy factory North Plympton in the 1970s. Lisa ( not her real name ) has been interviewed and filmed by professionals. Her account has been unanimously agreed on as true and correct. This is backed by statement analysis experts and criminologists

2. Haydn Phipps, Harrys eldest son accuses his father of sexual abuse/sodomy from approx the age of three to the age of thirteen. Also seeing the Beaumont children in his backyard that fateful day in 1966. He agreed to be interviewed and recorded by South Australia’s most respected private investigator Mr Bill Hayes. This interview in its entirety was presented to Australia’s leading statement analysis and lie, detection expert, Steve Van Aperen. Also to one of Europe’s leading statement analysis experts. The result? Haydn is telling the truth but hiding more.

Footnote: Haydn knew when he was going to be abused. He could hear the swish-swish of Satin rubbing together coming down the hallway in the early hours of the morning

3. As of early 2019, another lady steps forward accusing Harry Phipps of sexual abuse in the 1960s. This occurred in the cottages at Castalloy. An aerial photo is available for view on this site. Bill Hayes Private investigator is following up. ( Her account appears very credible )

4. The description of the man seen at the beach with the children fits the description of Harry Phipps.

5. Harry Phipps did fit the age range of the man seen playing with the Jane, Arrna and Grant Beaumont.

6. Jane Beaumont was given a pound note by the man she met at the beach. Harry Phipps was well known to give out pound notes in the 1960s. The giving of a pound note was a vital piece of information to detectives in 1966 and has been ever since.

7. Phipps resided 190 metres ( 207 yards approx ) from Colley Reserve where the man was seen playing with the children  ( See Ariel view )

8. Phipps lived  200 metres from Wenzel’s Bakery where Jane Beaumont was last seen buying a large lunch with a  pound note.

10. Harry Phipps regularly frequented Colley Reserve. … He regularly sponsored the annual children’s running race at the reserve.

11. Corroborated: Harry Phipps frequented a private gentleman’s club in the Adelaide CBD over many years. Where like-minded men dressed in ladies clothing.

12. Corroborated:  Harry with like-minded men dressed in women’s clothing would, on occasions congregate in the Castalloy canteen area on selected Sunday’s.Footnote: Dressing in women’s clothing does not make you a paedophile. However, when this crosses the line and you encroach on a minor’s personal space this then becomes something entirely different.

13. Phipps was well known to make a multitude of his own satin garments. Brightly coloured satin dresses,  kaftans and pyjamas. His favourite colours ( corroborated ) Pink, Lime Green, Red, Purple and Orange. What were the children wearing that day? Mainly, Pink, Lime Green and Red.

14. Corroborated: When wearing satin Harry became sexually aroused to the point of ejaculation. He always had to touch and feel this material which aroused him

15. Stuart Mullins spotted a beige purse similar to the one Jane Beaumont had with her that day in the basement of the Harry Phipps house. Once his second wife Elizabeth Phipps was alerted to this fact she discarded the item.

Footnote: For decades it has been reported Jane had a white purse. This is also in the police report. Janes best friend Jenny in the 1960s, when interviewed recently, stated Janes purse was beige and took it everywhere with her. Jenny sat next to Jane in grade two, three and four at Paringa Park primary school. She was expecting to sit next to her at the start of the new school year, Monday, January 31st. Sadly she like many never saw Jane again.

16. The Anglican Arch Bishop of Adelaide John Hepworth ( who was abused as a alter boy in the 1950s) fronted the Australian Royal Commission into child sex abuse. He knew of Harry Phipps in pedophilic circles in the 1950s and onward.

17. Harry Phipps had a grave size hole dug at the back of his Castalloy 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 they were paid in pound notes and told to “fuck off you little cunts and never come back“A very similar use of vocabulary spoken at the Adelaide oval in 1973 toward Anthony Kilmartin. An eye witness to Jo Anne Radcliffe 11 and Kirsty Gordons 4  abduction. They were also never seen again

Footnote: In Haydn’s meeting and a recorded interview with Bill Hayes. The last thing Haydn said before getting into his car: “THEY ARE IN THE PIT BILL”   Haydn also stated this to  Stuart Mullins, Haydns son Nick and to his cousin Peter. To his then-wife Angela in the late 1990s: ” THEY ARE IN THE SANDPIT, HARRY DID IT ”
