Darwin-based News Limited journalist Paul Toohey travelled to Central Australia last year after an anonymous water diviner gave him GPS coordinates for what he said was Mr Falconios grave. Toohey failed to find any human remains at the site, which was only 14km south from the murder scene, and vowed he was through with clairvoyants. That was until he got a phone call from Lorelle Trickett, a psychic based in Gosford, NSW, who said that she could find Mr Falconio. Toohey said he realised he had surrendered his cynicism of so-called mediums to his greed to find Mr Falconios remains. He said he and the group he was travelling with grew collectively insane watching Ms Trickett get positive Falconio readings from roadkill. Everyone has their reasons for wanting to find Mr Falconio perhaps, no one more so than Murdoch, who will be 73 years old by the time he is eligible for parole. Such a discovery could cement his conviction, or prove what he has maintained all along. The fact that Mr Falconios body remains hidden in the desert is a sobering reminder to many that their loved ones who have disappeared in Central Australia over the years may never be found. That same simple fact, coupled with suggestions the real murderer is still on the run, offers little comfort to the many tourists who travel by road through the heart of Australia each year.
