Unsolved Murder, Missing Case?

Look for the kiwi connection and you’ll probably find your murderer!

Aussie police want to talk to a New Zealander in connection with a barman who went missing on his 21st birthday 30 years ago.

Just hours before his party, Marcus Wayne Allcornan, an assistant manager at The Imperial Hotel, who was also studying hospitality, went missing.  He has not been seen for almost 30 years.

Marcus Wayne Allcorn was last seen around 1am on January 29, 1980, when he finished a night shift at the Imperial Hotel on Oxford Street in Paddington, Sydney, Australia, the ABC reported.

Karol Blackley of Sydney police said they now want to talk to a New Zealander, John Brown, who was also working at the hotel bar 30 years ago.

“We believe he moved on to other hotels working,” she said. “Obviously, the name, John Brown, is fairly common and at the time it was difficult to track down Mr Brown.”

“We are seeking again to locate Mr Brown and allow him to give some evidence about the background of Marcus … and the circumstances at the time.”

Police have appealed for John Brown to come forward. They said Mr Brown was not a suspect, however, he was someone who had valuable information

‘‘At the time [of Mr Allcorn’s disappearance] it was difficult to track down Mr Brown … he’s a witness we haven’t had an opportunity to speak to in 30 years.

‘‘He may have missed prior media releases and we are seeking again to locate Mr Brown and allow him to give some evidence about the background of Marcus … and the circumstances at the time.’’

Officers who suspect Mr Allcorn was a victim of foul play have returned to the bar to use technology that was not available at the time of the disappearance to look for traces of blood.

“Police believe he met foul play, and today asked for Mr Brown to come forward and help them solve the case, to provide closure to Mr Allcorn’s family who they say are ‘’living in darkness’’.

“This week, police used modern forensic technology at The Imperial – where Mr Allcorn lived and worked – to shed light on his last movements.” ABC reported.

Police is applying Luminol examination, forensic technology unavailable in 1980s when Mr Allcorn went missing, ABC said.

‘‘We used Luminol examination, which can be used in identifying where DNA and blood might be located,’’ Detective Sergeant Blackley said.

However, she did not say if traces of Mr Allcorn’s blood had been found during the examination.

“Police also made a 3D video recording of the hotel layout using its Interactive Scene Recording and Presentation System (ISRAPS) to help an investigation for the coroner.” ABC said.

‘‘The evidence is in a visual format that can be presented to the Coroner’s Court.

‘‘It also allows witnesses at the Coroner’s Court to go to areas within the hotel captured on the footage and describe in more intricate detail where they were or how things were.’’

The case was reportedly reopened in 2007, when police formed Strike Force Christine to investigate the missing.

“He was a happy go-lucky young man, with everything to live for,” Ms Blackley said.

“He expressed no unhappiness at all and just disappeared without a trace.”

“About 11,000 people are missing reported each year in NSW, but 95 per cent of those people were found within a week, police said.”

“Cases unsolved for as many years as Mr Allcorn’s represented only 2 per cent of cases, police said.” ABC reported.

Note: Comare the above statistics with the number of people missing in New Zealand, bearing in mind the difference in the size and population of the two countries.
