The high-profile Sharon Philips cold case is back into the limelight once again. The siblings of the victim broke their silence for the first time in 27 years since the incident happened, urging police to investigate their father’s alibi on the night their sister disappeared.

And I want him to kill me and put me in a box too.”
Despite hundreds of leads since 1986 when the incident happened, Sharron’s body was never found and no one was charged connected to the case. As reported by Brisbane Times, the new excavation of a block of bushland next to the family home in Riverview might unearth new evidence.
The new search came up because of new information provided to the police, according to Detective Superintendant Damien Hansen. There are plans to dig up a section of roadway at Carole Park in a hunt for fresh clues to the case.
