The New Zealand Herald brings fantastic news. Senior Detective Superintendent Andy Lovelock, who is reviewing the Crewe murders, wants the public’s help. He asks anyone with information to contact him. He wants to help find answers for their only child, Rochelle Crewe.
I quote: “I am extremely keen to hear from anyone who may have information about the murder of Harvey and Jeannette Crewe in June 1970 at their Pukekawa farm. This may be the last opportunity for police to consider what you can tell us.
Mr Lovelock said the original homicide investigation was being analysed by modern police tools to give a definitive assessment of the evidence gathered. Mr Lovelock said all paper documents have been copied into an electronic database that provides integrity to the review and is essential in managing 90,000 pages of material.”
The Crewe Murders are one of New Zealand’s greatest murder mysteries. Jeannette’s father found Rochelle alive in her crib. Rochelle was examined by doctors who thought the little girl did eat. She did not show the signs of a baby who had been without food and drink for five days.
Arthur Allen Thomas was convicted for this double homicides but was also pardoned, and a commission of inquiry found that police planted crucial evidence to get his conviction. .
Anyone with information should call Detective Superintendent Andy Lovelock on (09) 529-5658 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111. Read more here.
