On September 21st, we will be hearing from Det. Cameron Georg (Major Crime Investigation Branch) and Andy Bartlett (Forensic Response Section) from SAPol regarding a homicide case where the body has never been found.
The challenges of investigating a murder when the victim’s body is not recovered presents unique challenges to investigating police, the least of which is proving a murder has in fact occurred. Absent is the opportunity to collect critical evidence from the body to establish the time and manner of death and the possible identity of the offender(s). To build a circumstantial case which is both compelling and able to withstand the rigors of the criminal trial process takes considerable effort, expertise, teamwork and occasionally, an ounce of luck. The investigation into the 2008 murder of Paulo Miranda is one such investigation.
The presentation by MCIB and FRS will highlight the challenges and complexities in the investigation of the murder and the subsequent conviction of 5 offenders over Paulo’s death. From forensic analysis to data recovery to image matching, the investigation builds into an interesting and compelling case.
When: Thursday 21st September, 6:30 for 7pm start
Where: Flinders in the City, Victoria Square, Adelaide

The Wine: 2012 Currency Creek ‘CSI Shiraz’ 12.5% alc/vol
This Mediterranean style, cool-climate Shiraz displays plenty of peppery red berries and cherries on the nose. Hints of vanilla and soft spices round the character out and the palate is lighter and friendly with silky tannins, vibrant crimson hues, and a dry, anise-like finish. This is a versatile all-year-round food-friendly wine suited to Mediterranean cuisine, and will cellar well for 3-8 years. A lower alcohol content makes this a ‘socially responsible Shiraz’.
This award-winning family-run winery was awarded 5 stars on debut by James Halliday, and voted one of Australia’s Top 10 Best New Wineries in the 2014 Australian Wine Companion. The wines are grown in vineyards south of Adelaide, in the cool maritime climate of Currency Creek on South Australia’s beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.
