In one case, police said bones found were part of an Aboriginal burial, and in others they were remains of a cow or horse. When Bradley John Murdoch was found guilty of murder in 2005, Mr Falconios girlfriend, Joanne Lees, issued a statement pleading with the Broome mechanic to reveal where he disposed of the body. One year later, while in Australia to promote her book, No Turning Back, Ms Lees said she accepted it was unlikely Mr Falconios body would ever be found. Mr Falconio and Ms Lees, touring Australia in an orange Kombi van, were about 100km north of Ti Tree in the NT on the evening of July 14 2001, when a man in a white four-wheel drive gestured for them to pull over.
