Remains Of Sydney Couple Luke Davies And Jesse Baird Found After Missing

Two bodies have been found in the search for a young couple alleged to have been murdered in Sydney’s east.

Police have confirmed the remains of Luke Davies, 29, and Jesse Baird, 26, were found in Bungonia in the Southern Tablelands, southwest of Sydney about 1pm on Tuesday.

It’s understood police attended Silverwater Jail and spoke to suspected killer Beau Lamarre-Condon about 11am on Tuesday, who assisted in providing a location of where Luke and Jesse were.

NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb told reporters on Tuesday afternoon the bodies were found at a second crime scene in Bungonia, which police searched on both Monday and Tuesday.

“We are very confident that we have located Luke and Jesse,” she said.

Detective Superintendent Daniel Doherty added the remains were found about 20 minutes away from the original search site in Bungonia.

“There were two surf bags that have also been found and some debris and other items of interest of significance that are located,” he said.

Doherty said the families were immediately notified of the development.

“The crime scene is still being examined … but as I said, they’re in surf bags, and we allege the accused used those to transport the bodies from the house at Paddington.”

A search was launched for the men when their bloodied possessions were found in a skip bin in Cronulla about 11am last Wednesday.

That led police to Baird’s house, about 30km away in inner-city Paddington and then to sites in Sydney, Newcastle and the Southern Tablelands.

Last Friday morning, their alleged killer, NSW police officer Lamarre-Condon, handed himself in at Bondi Police Station and was later charged with two counts of murder.

Police said they believe the 28-year-old constable was in the Newcastle area the night before he handed himself in.

A search then began at a dam on a Bungonia property at the weekend.

Detectives as well as police divers were sent to the property, about 30km southwest of Goulburn.

On Tuesday, a second crime scene was established at another property in Bungonia. Police were also searching a property in Grays Point, as well as the Royal National Park off Sir Bertram Stevens Drive.
