NSW Police say they are “very confident” they have located the bodies of Jesse Baird and Luke Davies, who were allegedly murdered by a NSW police officer last week.

Police found the bodies in Bungonia, a small town about 200km south-west of Sydney.

Here’s the latest.

What we know

Last week, police launched an investigation into the suspicious disappearance of 26-year-old ex-Channel 10 presenter Jesse Baird, and 29-year-old flight attendant Luke Davies.

NSW police confirmed that last Monday, neighbours heard gunshots from Baird’s Paddington address. On Wednesday, some of their possessions were found in a skip bin in Cronulla.

The next day, police searched a home in Balmain in relation to Beau Lamarre-Condon, a NSW police officer believed to be known to Baird.

On Friday, Lamarre-Condon handed himself in to police in Bondi. Within hours, the 28-year-old police officer was charged with two counts of murder.

Earlier this week, NSW Police said the accused had refused to assist them with locating the couple.

Investigations since have spanned multiple locations across NSW, including Sydney, Newcastle, and Bungonia.

Police comments

Speaking at a press conference this afternoon, NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb said police were “very confident” they had located the bodies of Jesse Baird and Luke Davies.

“The families have been informed, and crime scene detectives have just arrived on scene” at a rural property in Bungonia.

Webb added: “This information did come with the assistance of [Lamarre-Condon] for which we’re very grateful and I’m sure the families are very grateful.”
