Reopen the investigation into the murder of Leanne Holland
- QLD Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson
As it stands, Leanne Holland's murder is now an unsolved cold case. The purpose of this petition is to force the authorities to reopen the investigation into who really killed Leanne Holland and to begin investigating the initial mishandling of the case by the original investigating team.
Graham Stuart Stafford was jailed for life in 1992 after being found guilty in the Queensland Supreme Court of murdering schoolgirl Leanne Holland.
He was convicted on circumstantial evidence of using a blunt object to bash to death the sister of his then-fiancee at a home in Goodna on September 23, 1991.
Graham spent nearly 15 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. He was released early in 2005 and on Christmas Eve 2009 had his conviction quashed pending a retrial. On March 26 2010 the Crown said that they would not be proceeding with a retrial.
We, the undersigned, call on the Queensland Police Commissioner Mr Bob Atkinson, to reopen and re-investigate the case of the 1991 murder of Leanne Holland and to begin investigating the initial mishandling of the case by the original investigating team.
