My Sad Narrative
I live in Sydney, Australia. This information is released for “in the public interest”, “for the public good”, “in the interests of justice” and whereby there has been a contravention of “human rights”. There has been a denial of “natural justice”.
Sexual assault at the Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney - matter covered up
I was sexually assaulted at the Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, on 3 November 1988. It was a pack rape. The police officer, Joanne Vickery, Chatswood Dectives, covered the matter up. During the course of the investigations Joanne Vickery had taken me to an area behind some police buildings at Chatswood Police Station. Joanne Vickery told me that she did not want anyone to hear what she was going to tell me. Joanne Vickery told me that she believed that I had been sexually assaulted, but she could not do anything about it as her hands were tied behind her back. Joanne Vickery told me she was booked into Royal North Shore Hospital to have her first child. Joanne Vickery told me that she did not want anything happening untoward to her and her future baby There was a conflict of interest. She should not have been put on the case
Chris Shea, my now ex-husband, perceived that Dr Matthew Brandl Rossi (a doctor from the United States) and other medical staff got away with the sexual assault perpetrated on me.
Chris Shea got 12 year old student pregnant
Chris Shea went and got Emma Thom, a 12 year old student, pregnant in January 1989. Chris Shea is a teacher. Emma Thom lived at 23 Morilla Road, Dee Why. Emma Thom was a student at the school Chris Shea taught at. Chris Shea had worked part time at the same place as Emma Thom’s mother, Dianne Thom. James Henry Thom was born in October 1989. Chris Shea had also got a fellow colleague pregnant. Her name is Tanya Turik. Her husband, Dave Turik, was overseas when Tanya Turik got pregnant with Chris Shea's child. Jason Alexander Turik was born five months after James Thom. Chris Shea had given the male version of my Russian name of Alexandra to Jason Alexander Turik. Both Tanya Turik and Emma Thom were good friends.
Our son, Andrew, found out about James Thom, the son of Chris Shea and Emma Thom
In 1993, I divorced Chris Shea. We had been married since 1971. Chris Shea and I continued to live in the same house with our three kids. Our son, Andrew Shea, had a friend who lived in the same street as Emma Thom. Shortly after the divorce, Andrew came home and told us that a teacher had gotten Emma Thom pregnant and that they had a kid. Andrew said that Chris Shea knew the father of the kid “very well, very well indeed”. I told Andrew to get the name of the teacher and then I would go to the police with the name.
Shortly after the divorce in 1993, my sister Margaret Samootin, came down from Brisbane, Queensland. She was divorced. Margaret Samootin had a relationship with Chris Shea. Margaret Samootin and her kids were involved in drugs. Margaret Samootin worked for the Department of Police and Corrective Services, Brisbane, Queensland. Margaret Samootin took photographs of my two sons with a borrowed camera. Margaret Samootin kept commenting on the physical and healthy appearance of my two sport’s active sons. After Margaret Samootin returned to her home in Brisbane, Chris Shea had come home and told me he found out a scheme whereby he could get very rich overnight involved in a highly illegal activity. I told him to keep out of it.
Andrew set up to have accident, taken away from the accident alive and used as an illegal organ donor
The forensic details concerning Andrew David Shea’s murder are under the headers of “PHOTOS”, “MAPS”, "DOCUMENTS" and “TRANSCRIPTS”.
On Christmas day 1993, Andrew drove to Byron Bay to visit a friend. Andrew had planned to spend the New Year at Byron Bay and then return home to his part time job at the local hospital near our home in Sydney. We had bush fires around Sydney. Andrew could not come home as the roads to Sydney were cut off by the bush fires. Instead of coming home as planned, Andrew drove up to Brisbane to stay at Margaret Samootin’s place until the bush fires were over. Margaret Samootin lives at 51 Peel Street, Manly, Queensland. Andrew was 20 years old.
On Wednesday, 12 January, 1994, the day before Andrew was due to come home to Sydney, Alexander Kirk, Margaret Samootin’s son, insisted that Andrew go cycling with him. Andrew did not want to go as he was leaving first thing in the morning to come back home. Alexander then asked his mother, Margaret Samootin, to intervene. Both Alexander Kirk and Margaret Samooitn pressured Andrew to go cycling with Alexander. Alexander took the cycling route to Port of Brisbane. Alexander Kirk took this unmarked cycling route regularly after work. Alexander Kirk was a Queensland Junior cyclist champion.
Alexander Kirk and Andrew cycled on Port Road, Lytton, to the Port of Brisbane via the intersection of Pritchard Street and Port Road, Lytton. They then turned around and cycled back towards the intersection of Pritchard Street and Port Road. Andrew had not been on this route before. It appears on the face of it, that Alexander Kirk had instructed Andrew to go straight ahead of him through the intersection, and had asked Andrew to lead. Meanwhile, Alexander Kirk had turned into the left lane leading into Pritchard Street traveling towards Wynnum from Port Road.
When the Alexander Kirk and Andrew had turned back to cycle back down Port Road, they had gone by the construction site where John Phillips and Scott Anthony Bryant were sitting and chatting with others. John Phillips was the driver of the vehicle that had hit Andrew. Scott Anthony Bryant had claimed that he had followed John Philips in his vehicle. It was after 5.30 pm. Scott Anthony Bryant had claimed that they had started work at 7.00am. The construction site was located near the overpass construction on Port Road. When Alexander Kirk and Andrew cycled past, John Phillips, Scott Anthony Bryant and others got into their vehicles and followed the cyclists.
There was a Fiore Zulli at the accident site. Fiore Zulli lives at 12 Macallister Street, Carina. At the time of the accident, Fiore Zulli lived with his aunty at 26 Birdwood Road, Carina. At the time of the accident, Fiore Zuli worked at Caltex Refineries (Qld) Pty Ltd, South Street, Lytton. Fiore Zulli, instead of going home westwards was traveling eastwards. Fiore Zulli had stated in his police statement that he lived at “Chandler”. This meant he would have had to travel eastwards to get to Chandler. Fiore Zulli never lived at Chandler. There had been no satisfactory explanation given as to why Fiore Zulli was going the opposite direction instead of going home directly after work to his Aunty’s place at 26 Birdwood Road, Carina.
After reading Fiore Zulli’s two police statements, it had become apparent to me that Fiore Zulli was not a truthful person.
Andrew’s bicycle was initially hit from the rear by the driver of the utility that was following him
On 23 September 1995, I had telephoned Fiore Zulli. Fiore Zulli had told me that he had initially seen Andrew on Port Road, next to the traffic island prior to the intersection, with the driver of the utility following him. Fiore Zulli told me that he saw the utility strike the rear end of the bicycle that Andrew was on. Fiore Zulli told me that the utility was traveling to the extreme left hand side of Port Road. Fiore Zulli told me that the two parties were positioned next to the traffic island on Port Road prior to the intersection. Fiore Zulli told me that he then saw Andrew cycle through the intersection. Fiore Zulli then told me he saw the vehicle follow Andrew and then veer to the left and to the left again. Fiore Zulli told me that he was shocked by what he saw. Evidence shows that this did occur, i.e. that Andrew was initially hit from behind when he was on Port Road prior to the intersection, and then Andrew cycled through the intersection, westwards towards the safety of the traffic island on Pritchard Street, beyond the intersection.
After the disturbing conversation with Fiore Zulli, I made an appointment to see the Coroner in Brisbane, Queensland. I had traveled to Brisbane. I told the Coroner, Gary Casey, what Fiore Zulli had told me. I had the police photographs with me. I had showed Gary Casey, police photographs of the evidence on the utility’s lower front centre bull bar where it had struck the bicycle from behind. Gary Casey thanked me and said to me that he was going to get John Ruller from the Traffic Investigation Squad into his office. Gary Casey said that he was going to ask John Ruller to bring his police note book. Gary Casey told me that every police officer had a note book to take details of the accident that they attended. Gary Casey said that he knew John Ruller on a personal level.
Now back to the accident on the evening of 12 January 1994. John Phillips, the owner and driver of the Toyota Hilux Utility Queensland Registration No 322CDO, hit Andrew’s bicycle from behind when both parties were on Port Road just prior to the intersection of Port Road and Pritchard Street, Lytton. John Phillips lived at 48 Jacaranda Avenue, Boronia Heights, Queensland.
John Phillips, Fiore Zulli, Sergeant Ruller, Constables Ben Dyball, Holly James and Samantha Johnson said that Andrew had cycled through the T intersection from Pritchard Street, Lytton (i.e. travelling north), and turned right into the path of an oncoming utility that had been travelling westwards on Port Road. They said that the collision had occurred in the middle of the intersection. It was claimed that Andrew flew through the air for 45 meters before hitting the road, well away from the intersection. The evidence shows that the utility was traveling at 40 to 45 kilometers per hour and that Andrew did not fly through the air for 45 meters before hitting the road.
No physical evidence on the road of a collision at the intersection
There was no physical evidence of a collision at the intersection of Port Road and Pritchard Street, Lytton.
It appears on the face of it, that upon the initial impact from the rear to the bicycle by the utility's lower rung bullbar, Andrew must have sped up and then cycled through the intersection, travelling westwards.
The driver of the utility mounted the curb and then hit Andrew on the grassed area of the traffic island
After Andrew had cycled past the intersection, he veered to the left, and jumped the curb of the traffic island onto the grassed area of the traffic island. John Phillips had followed Andrew in his vehicle, veered to the left and jumped the curb of the traffic island. Evidence shows that the left wheels of the utility were on the grassed area of the traffic island. Evidence shows that the right wheels of the utility remained on the road. John Phillips hit Andrew when he was on the grassed area of the traffic island. John Phillips had hit Andrew coming up from behind him.
Evidence shows that John Phillips had hooked up the right handle bar of the bicycle to the left side of the utility’s bull bar. Evidence shows that Andrew's right calf muscle of his leg had been hit from behind from impact by the left edge of the bull bar. Evidence shows that Andrew projected up into the windscreen, rotated past the left passenger window and fell into the back tray of the utility. Evidence shows that John Phillips braked to a stop.
I was informed on the night of the accident that Andrew had fallen into the back tray of the utility
On the night of the accident, 12 January 1994, Constable Ben Dyball, Wynnum Police Station, told me that he and Constable Holly James were just around the corner when the accident happened. Constable Dyball said that they were at the accident site within a minute after it had happened. Constable Dyball told me that they could not locate Andrew. Constable Dyball told me that they did not know where Andrew went. Constable Dyball told me that they looked into the swamp area around the intersection. Constable Dyball told me that someone had heard moaning from the back tray of the utility. Constable Dyball told me that Andrew had fallen into the back tray of the utility onto some ladders. Constable Dyball told me that they had removed Andrew from the back of the utility and had placed him on the grassed area of the traffic island next to the utility. Constable Dyball told me that Andrew was alive. Constable Dyball told me that he waited with Andrew until the ambulance officers came.
The police photograph of Andrew at the accident site show that Andrew initially had a nose tube put into his left nostril to help him breath. The police photograph shows that Andrew then had a tracheotomy device put into his throat.
Andrew moved about the accident site in order to prepare a “fake” accident report
The evidence in the police photographs show that Andrew was moved about the accident site to a different location from where Constable Ben Dyball and others had placed him after removing him from the rear tray of the utility. Andrew was then placed on the road to satisfy the police officers' theory of a straight line projectile throw from the “fake collision” in the centre of the intersection. Andrew’s final “fake” resting spot is 45 meters from the intersection of Port Road and Pritchard Street, Lytton. Andrew was then photographed in the “fake” location by Sergeant Robert John Ruller, Traffic Investigation Squad, Queensland Police Service.
In one of the police photographs there is a spray of blood on the road indicating that Andrew was moved about the accident site. Further on from the spray of blood on the road, there is a line of blood that had been covered by dirt. It appears that Andrew had not been placed in the “correct position”. Therefore, the blood line from Andrew’s injuries was covered with dirt; and Andrew was moved to a different position and then photographed.
Sergeant Robert John Ruller and Constable Samantha Johnson, Traffic Investigation Squad, Queensland Police Service, Queensland, had utilized the straight line of theory throw. That is, Andrew was supposedly hit at the intersection by the utility which was traveling over 70 kilometers per hour; Andrew supposedly flew like a projectile through the air for 45 meters; the driver of the utility had supposedly travelled in a straight line from the centre of the intersection, ran over Andrew’s body on the road, and supposedly came to a stop, 75 meters from the intersection, with the bicycle's right handlebar attached to the left front side of the utility’s bull bar. The remainder of the bicycle was sticking out of the front of the vehicle, looking like a bull dozer attachment, with the rear wheel of the bicycle being foremost. There are no corresponding gouge marks on the road surface from the bicycle's badly damaged metal frame and wheels.
The only problem is that the police photographs and other evidence at the accident site does not match up with the straight line of theory of travel of the vehicle, and after collision impact the straight line of theory projectile throw of Andrew. This includes the single brake on the road westwards of the intersection indicating that John Philips in his vehicle had mounted the traffic island, hit Andrew and then braked to a stop. During the actual accident time frame, the bicycle’s front wheel had been caught up around the utility’s left front tire. The rear of the bicycle had up-ended. After the accident, the portion of the bicycle that was caught up under the utility’s left front wheel had been pulled out by unknown hands and the utility had been reversed. The utility and the bicycle (still attached to the utility’s left side of the front bull bar) had then been moved and then photographed by the police.
Police photographic evidence shows that a car that had hit the back of the utility involved in the accident was towed away prior to the police photographs being taken. John Stephen Rennie, ambulance driver, had stated in his police statement that he had spoken to the other driver involved in the accident and asked him about his welfare. He incicated that it was a vehicular accident that he had attended.
After the accident occurred Fiore Zulli went back to Caltex Refineries (Qld) Pty Ltd, South Street, Lytton. Fiore Zulli works there. Fiore Zulli asked the security person at the gate to call for an ambulance and had informed him that my son was unconscious. Fiore Zulli went back to the accident site.
The police had contacted my sister, Margaret Samootin, at her home from the accident site. Margaret Samootin was at her home at 51 Peel Street, Manly. The police had asked Margaret Samootin to bring with her Andrew’s drivers license for a formal identification. Margaret Samootin went to Andrew’s carry bag. Margaret Samootin took Andrew’s wallet. Margaret Samootin emptied Andrew’s wallet into the carry bag. Margaret Samootin took Andrew’s Learners Driver’s License. Margaret Samootin and Douglas Kirk went to the accident site in her car. Margaret Samootin stayed at the accident site. Alexander and Douglas Kirk returned home. Douglas Kirk is the other son of Margaret Samootin.
Andrew taken away from the accident site to a destination still unknown to me
The ambulance officers, Glen Thomas and John Stephen Rennie attended Andrew at the accident site. Andrew was taken away from the accident site to a destination still unknown to me. On the face of it, it appears that Glen David Thomas and John Stephen Rennie had taken Andrew to a local hospital. From there on Andrew was transported to the Brisbane morgue. Andrew arrived at the Brisbane Morgue at 10.50pm. The accident had occurred at about 6.50pm. Glen David Thomas and John Stephen Rennie had left the accident site at 7.35pm. There is no chain of custody documentation of Andrew leaving the accident site and being transported to the morgue.
Margaret Samootin at accident site
At the accident site, my sister, Margaret Samootin, had picked up Andrew’s blue watch that I had previously given him. It was badly damaged. Margaret Samootin told me that she had asked the police that if she could put the watch into Andrew’s blood so that they could photograph it. Margaret Samootin had placed the watch in Andrew’s blood in the spot where the position of his head had been on the road and not his wrists. After the watch was photographed, Margaret Samootin, picked up the watch. Margaret Samootin told me that she got Andrew’s blood onto her hands. Margaret Samootin said that when she got home she had cleaned most of the blood off the watch. Margaret Samootin told me that she then washed the watch in the washing machine to get the blood out of the cracks of the watch. Margaret Samootin told me that the watch was clean of blood. The day following the accident, Margaret Samootin had given me Andrew’s watch. I had flown up to Brisbane. Margaret Samootin had given me the broken bicycle pedal and broken cogs of the bicycle chain which she got from the accident site. She told me that Constable Samantha Johnson had given her the broken bicycle pedal.
On the night of the accident, after Andrew had been removed from the accident site, Sergeant Robert John Ruller, Accident Investigation Squad, photographed the accident site. Constable Johnson picked up the broken bicycle pedal that was on the grassed area of the traffic island well away from the intersection. Constable Johnson noted on her rough sketch that this snapped off bicycle pedal was in the grassed area of the traffic island and marked the location as Point 18. Constable Johnson gave the broken bicycle pedal to Margaret Samootin.
On the night of the accident 12 January 1994, Margaret Samootin went with Constable Ben Dyball directly from the accident site to the morgue. Margaret Samootin lied to me when she said that the police had picked her up at her home at Manly and then took her to the morgue.
The police communication records show that this could not occur as the time factor would not allow the deviation from the direct route to the morgue from the accident site.
Andrew had his face smashed up after the police identification photographs were taken at the morgue
After the police identification photographs were taken at the morgue at 10.50pm, Wednesday 12 January 1994, Andrew had his face smashed up. Andrew was still alive when he had his faced smashed up.
I went to Brisbane the day following the accident
On Thursday, 13 January 1994, I had traveled up to Brisbane from Sydney. I had wanted to see Andrew for myself at the morgue. I had wanted to confirm that he was deceased. I was not allowed to see Andrew on that day.
I was taken to the accident site by my sister Margaret Samootin
I had been met at the airport by my sister, Margaret Samootin. Margaret Samootin took me to the accident site. Margaret Samootin photographed me next to the spot where the blood was from Andrew. Margaret Samootin told me that is where Andrew had been the night before and that the collision had occurred at the intersection.
I was rather puzzled. It seemed to me to that the blood stain on the road was an awfully long way from the intersection. I could not see how the accident could have occurred in the manner described. That is Andrew had traveled through the T intersection and had turned right into the path of an oncoming vehicle, while he was cycling on a bicycle – going slow after turning a steep right hand turn into a single lane to go right. Andrew did not know the area.
Andrew had very good eyesight. Andrew was a fitness fanatic. Andrew cycled a lot in Sydney. Andrew swam a lot. Andrew was a good runner. Andrew did not take drugs. Andrew did not drink. Andrew did not smoke. Andrew was a cheerful happy person. Andrew had many friends. Andrew was a student. Andrew had a part time cleaning job at a local hospital in Sydney. Andrew had just got a part time job as a basketball coach at a local private school. Andrew was looking forward to his tertiary education at a university. Andrew had wanted to be a sports teacher. Andrew had wanted to do his graphic arts degree after he had completed his university degree to be a sports teacher. Andrew had been to his nominated university in Sydney to get “the feel of it” before he went on his trip to Byron Bay.
On Thursday, 13 January 1994, the day following the accident Sergeant Robert John Ruller went to Bayside Towing, 409 Wondal Road, Tingalpa. This is where John Phillip’s utility had been taken to after the accident. Sergeant Robert John Ruller had taken three photographs of Andrew’s path of travel along the side of the utility, i.e. line of blood splatters, blood smears and human matter. The first photograph showed that there was contact between Andrew and the utility’s left front side of the windscreen. The second photograph had shown that Andrew had rotated onto the upper side of the left passenger door with the blood and human matter direction marks leading into the back tray of the utility. The third photograph showed the blood and human matter direction marks leading into the back tray of the utility.
On Thursday, 13 January 1994, the day following the accident when I was in Brisbane at Margaret Samootin’s place, I had been given a Queensland Police Service business card with Constable Ben Dyball’s and Constable Holly James on it. I was told to contact them if I had any queries.
Police notebooks are missing
Sergeant Robert John Ruller and Constable Johnson had stated that they took no notes of the accident in their police note books (or perhaps the note books have disappeared). Sergeant John Ruller and Constable Johnson investigated the accident. Under the Freedom of Information Act, I have tried to locate the Register that is used when police note books are issued to police officers. This too has vanished.
Constable Johnson informed me that the collision had occured at the curb's edge west of the intersection
After much pressure from me regarding the collision point Constable Samantha Johnson, through the Freedom of Information Act, sent me an altered To Scale Diagram with the collision point marked west of the intersection, on the left hand side of the road, next to the curb. She told me that is where John Phillips had told her on the night of the accident, that he had hit Andrew.
There is a strong possibility that Joseph Wills was at the accident site at the time of the accident
There is a strong indication that Joseph Wills, 130 Macarthy Road, Marsden, was involved with the accident. Joseph Wills, at the time of the accident, owned the red Ford Falcon 045CEW. The driver of the Red Ford Falcon 045CEW had followed John Phillips along Port Road. Constable Ben Dyball had written down in his notes that Scott Anthony Bryant was the owner of the red Ford Falcon 045CEW and had followed John Phillips. The information as to the owner of the red Ford Falcon 045CEW was incorrect.
On 12 February 2004, I had visited Joseph Wills at his home at 130 Macarthy Road, Marsden. Joseph Wills confirmed that he was the former owner of the red Ford Falcon 045CEW at the time of the accident. Joseph Wills had looked at the police photographs of the accident site. Joseph Wills had referred to a white mark on the road in one of the police photographs. Joseph Wills told me that were kids on the road drag racing before the accident occurred and that they will not talk as they will be booked by the police for drag racing. I had recalled that prior to my going to Brisbane on the Easter weekend 1994 (2nd April 1994), I had telephoned Constable Samantha Johnson. I had told her that I had wanted to view the accident site and photograph it. Constable Johnson told me that the police had painted the yellow marks on the road; and that the white marks on the road were from the kids who were drag racing before the accident had occurred.
Confirmation by police that Andrew had been moved at the accident site
At the Coronial Inquest Sergeant Robert John Ruller had stated that the bicycle and the utility involved in the collision had been moved at the accident site. Sergeant Robert John Ruller did not state the location at the accident site from where these items had been moved.
A senior police officer at Wynnum Police Station had recently confirmed that:
- Andrew had fallen into the back of the utility as I had been told by Constable Dyball on the night of the accident by telephone
- then I was given the police business card by Constables Ben Dyball and Holly James the day following the accident
- then that event did occur and no other event had occurred.
This police officer had stated that the story of Andrew flying through the air for 45 meters was rather “far fetched”.
Andrew’s appearance at the morgue – Andrew had just been killed the day I saw him
On the third day after the accident, Friday, 14 January 1994, my sister, Margaret Samootin took me to the morgue to view Andrew's body. We were kept waiting a long time. We were told that the "autopsy" was taking longer than expected. Initially, I was not permitted to enter the room that Andrew was in. He was behind a glass window. I had a gut feeling that something was being hidden from me.
I kicked up a stink until I was allowed to go into the room to view Andrew’s body. I immediately went to the side that was away from the glass window. I looked at Andrew’s face. I immediately knew that he was kept alive after the accident.
Andrew’s right eye was swollen. Andrew had a swollen fractured jawbone. Andrew had three tracheotomy wounds to his throat. I picked up Andrew’s hands in my hands. They were still warm, but cooling down. I moved his fingers and bones in my hands. They were pliable. I knew that Andrew had been slaughtered that morning. I kept looking at Andrew’s features.
Andrew’s body had not been refrigerated. He did not have moisture on the skin where it had come into contact with the warmer air. Andrew did not have hypostasis. Andrew’s right eye was swollen shut. His left eye was open. I looked at the brown color in his left eye. Instead of a deep brown, the iris of the left eye was slightly lighter. Andrew had seven stitches to his face. Five of the stitches had fresh blood seeping through. Dead people do not bleed. Andrew had some “old” bruises to his face and a “fresh” blue bruise to his face, indicating that the bruising had occurred at different times. Andrew had stubble on his face. He shaved every day.
Andrew had lost weight. I looked under the sheet that was covering his body. There was something missing from his chest. Andrew’s face was frozen in agony by death. His lower teeth were clenched over his upper teeth. I knew that Andrew was not brain dead when he was sliced into. I have been told that donors are taken off all medication six hours prior to the donation. My poor dear son! What a horrible death he had. I held his hands in mine. They were cooling down. Andrew smelt clean. It appeared to me that he had good nursing care.
I knew that Margaret Samootin was involved. Margaret Samootin was in the room with me.
Later, I found out that the Coroner, Gary Casey, got Andrew’s organ.
After Andrew’s death people got $$$ out of thin air
After Andrew’s death, Emma Thom, Tanya Turik and others that Chris Shea knew got monies. Chris Shea said that Emma Thom was “now very rich”. Margaret Samootin seemed to have come into monies. Her banking habits changed. I noticed that when I was visiting Margaret Samootin and she wanted money for shopping instead of withdrawing money from her bank account, she would go into her room and lock the door. I would hear furniture being moved about. Then, after a little while, she would come out with the money. Margaret Samootin purchased herself a mobile van. Margaret Samootin gave her daughter money to invest. Margaret Samootin gave her daughter and her boyfriend money to go on an extended holiday in Asia. And so on it went. Quite a number of persons who were involved in Andrew’s accident went on extended overseas holidays.
After Andrew’s death, Chris Shea spent an inordinate amount of time with Emma Thom. Chris Shea had helped Emma’s relative Leila Joan Dare renovate her business, Exquisite Skin & Beauty Salon. Exquisite Skin & Beauty Salon was located in an arcade next to Woolworths at Dee Why. Chris Shea told me that the business was making a loss even after the renovations, as there was not enough human traffic going by. Chris Shea was then involved in the transference of the business to Pittwater Road, Dee Why. Chris Shea had taken his mother to visit the Thoms. Chris Shea’s mother had come back home to my place at Mona Vale and told me how much the four year old James Thom looked like Andrew, except that Andrew had olive skin and brown eyes; whereas James Thom had a fair skin and blue eyes. Andrew looked like his father, Chris Shea. James Thom looks like his father, Chris Shea. Chris Shea had told me later that the business Exquisite Skin & Beauty Salon had made a considerable profit with his involvement in it. Chris Shea was besotted with Emma Thom. When Emma Thom turned eighteen she dumped Chris Shea. Emma Thom is now married. Her name is now Emma Shannon.
At one time after Andrew’s death, Chris Shea had come home very pleased. Chris Shea told me that a “rich uncle” had given monies for Jason Alexander Turik’s future education.
Flawed report from James M Green, G E Engineering, 120 Kalmia Drive, Ashville, North Carolina, United States
I got James M Green, G E Engineering, 120 Kalmia Drive, Ashville, North Carolina, United States, to prepare a report of the accident for me. James M Green claims to be an expert in bicycle reconstruction accidents. James M Green prepared a flawed report. James M Green stated that he examined the bicycle’s frame and estimated that the speed of the vehicle was over 70 kilometers per hour. James M Green had all the police photographs, Constable Samantha Johnson’s Coronial Report and her sketches and diagrams of the accident site. The marked length of the single skid brake mark on the road on Pritchard Street is 10.3 meters. The forensic science states that this single skid mark shows that John Phillips was driving between 40 to 50 kilometers per hour prior to braking. That is as fast as a cyclist would go. Andrew’s superannuation payout was used to pay James M Green. The report cost me $US3,000.00. As to why James M Green was so brutal to me, I do not know.
Prior to the Coronial hearing that was to be held on 2nd December 1996, Robert Dunn, a family solicitor, told me that the Coroner said to him that he did not want me to bring down the Queensland Police Service. Prior to this time, Chris Shea had given instructions to Robert Dunn to transfer the 82 Waterview Street, Mona Vale home, into his name. The lending company refused to get involved, as the property was in joint tenancy between Chris Shea and I. The home stayed in joint tenancy.
The first Coronial Inquest into Andrew’s death, 2 December 1996
The first hearing of Andrew’s Coronial Inquest was held on 2nd December 1996.
During the Coronial Inquest Constable Samantha Johnson would not tell the Court where the collision had occurred. It was her job to ascertain the collision point of the accident. This omission is concealment of evidence.
Constable Johnson did not note all the points of interest of the accident on her “To Scale” diagram, i.e. debris of the accident, the gouge marks in the cement area of the traffic island, all the blood marks on the road, tire marks on the grassed area of the traffic island, bicycle imprint on the grassed area of the traffic island, where the utility had run over the bicycle, etc. She was required to do this. This omission is a concealment of evidence.
Sergeant Robert John Ruller did not photograph the debris of the accident that was strewn in a line in the grassed area of the traffic island, west of the intersection of Port Road and Pritchard Street, Lytton, even though he should have done this. This is concealment of evidence.
Constable Johnson had agreed that the vehicle would have mounted the traffic island west of the intersection. The hearing was adjourned to 13th October 1997.
Our home at Mona Vale was sold in July 1997
In July 1997 Chris Shea and I had sold our former marital home at 82 Waterview Street, Mona Vale.
I found out that the Coroner, Gary Casey got Andrew’s organ
By the time the adjourned Coronial hearing had come around, I knew that Gary Casey had got Andrew’s organ. I had told Margaret Samootin that I had found out that Gary Casey had got Andrew’s organ.
I found out more about Andrew’s accident
I found out a lot more about the accident. I had got the police photographs of Andrew at the accident site from James M Green. I got very upset when I saw these photographs. Andrew was definitely alive when the police photographs were taken. I had two photographs of Andrew in his coffin. I could see that Andrew had sustained the broken jaw bone at a time after the police photographs of him were taken at the accident site, to the time that I had seen him at the morgue.
I went to Brisbane Police Headquarters. I had a look at the negatives of the accident. I located another two photographs of Andrew. These photographs were taken at the morgue after the so called autopsy. I had asked that these two negatives be produced as photographs and be delivered to the Court for the hearing that was to be held on 13th October 1997. I had also asked for the production of the identification photograph taken by the police at the Coronial Inquest to be held on 13th October 1997. I had wanted to pin point the time when Andrew had his jaw bone broken.
I was set up to have a taped conversation with Warren Wex an undercover cop
A few weeks prior to the adjourned hearing held on 13 October 1997, my brother, Paul Samootin, had telephoned me and said to me that he had wanted me to see his friend, a Warren Wex. Paul Samootin was staying at my deceased mother’s home at 100 Kingsley Terrace, Manly, Queensland. Warren Wex had wanted to see my documentation about Andrew’s accident. Paul Samootin told me that Warren Wex was a private detective.
I went to Brisbane with the documents that I had prepared for the Inquest. I had all the questions typed up that I was going to ask the witnesses in Court. Paul Samootin had taken me into the room attached to the kitchen. Paul Samootin left the room to go downstairs to the room below the room I was in with Warren Wex. During the course of conversation, it had become apparent to me that Warren Wex was an undercover cop. It had become apparent to me that the conversation was being taped. At the conclusion of discussions, Warren Wex had told me that I had overwhelming evidence to support my case, and that is Andrew had been set up to have an accident and that he was used as an illegal organ donor.
At the adjourned Coronial Inquest an attempt was made on my life to shut me up
At the adjourned Coronial hearing on 13th October 1997 an attempt was made on my life to shut me up.
Initially Chris Shea was not going to go to Brisbane to the adjourned hearing. I did not care much. There had been a lot of arguments. I could not understand his attitude. Most dads that I knew cared about their children. I had seen distraught fathers who had sobbed over their deceased child’s grave at the cemetery. Chris Shea never cried about Andrew’s death. Chris Shea looked relieved.
Early Sunday morning, on 12th October, 1997 Chris Shea and I had left Sydney to drive to Brisbane for the adjourned hearing. We arrived in Beaudesert Queensland on the night of 12th October 1997. Chris Shea and I stayed in a caravan park. Chris Shea had contact with a person via his mobile telephone when he went to have a shower. Chris Shea had told me that he was told what to do at the inquest.
On the same day, in Sydney, someone had deposited $350 into Chris Shea’ bank account to cover Chris Shea’ costs for the trip to Brisbane for the inquest. (On 14 October 1997, the person who had deposited the $350 took out $45 out of Chris Shea’ bank account. This person had such a good time in Sydney that he had overspent his monies. This person needed petrol money to get home.)
When Chris Shea and I got into Court for the adjourned hearing of the Coronial Inquest into Andrew’s death on the morning of 13th October 1997, I was told where to sit by George Moss. George Moss had referred to a particular item that I had discussed with Warren Wex, the private investigator (undercover cop) that my brother, Paul Samootin, had set up. George Moss told me that I got it wrong, and said that he started working in the Coroner’s office on a certain date and not the date that I had mentioned. I said to him that I was awfully sorry about it.
I drink a lot of water. I had a look at the water in the glass jar. It looked rather peculiar. I poured some water out into a plastic cup. It did not look right. It looked heavy. I had a taste of the water. I did not drink it. Shortly afterwards the police officers entered the room. I was told that Chris Shea was going to ask the questions and I was not to ask any questions at all. The inquest started. My eyes went out of focus and I slid down my chair to somewhere down below the desk. No one came to my aid. I knew that I had been “nobbled”.
Chris Shea let the case run through his fingers about Andrew’s murder
When I recovered somewhat, I staggered out of the Court room. I went into one of the interview rooms and lay down. Later I went back into the court room. I was very shaky. I felt drained. My head ached. I could hardly hold it up let alone ask questions. I was very ill. Chris Shea just let the case run through his fingers. He asked stupid questions. He did not conduct the hearing in a proper manner asking questions. He supplied the answers to which the police officer or the witness concerned agreed. At this point in time, I did not know that Chris Shea was involved in Andrew’s death.
I did not go the following day to the Coronial Inquest. The only item on the agenda was the testimony of Sergeant Robert John Ruller. I was just too sick to go to Court.
Sergeant Robert John Ruller, Queensland Traffic Accident Investigation Squad did not produce an accident reconstruction report on Andrew’s accident
On 14th October 1997, Sergeant Robert John Ruller had a field day dissecting James M Green’s report. Sergeant Robert John Ruller did not produce his own reconstruction report of the accident; even though he had been at the accident site and was supposed to investigate it and produce his own accident reconstruction report. Sergeant Ruller did not have a police note book to refer to regarding the details of the accident.
Sergeant John Ruller said that the bicycle and the utility had been moved at the accident site. Sergeant John Ruller did not determine from where the bicycle and the utility had been moved. Sergeant John Ruller did not determine the speed of the vehicle at the time of collision by the length of the single skid mark left on the road by the utility. Sergeant John Ruller refuted James M Green’s report that the vehicle had mounted the curb, as James M Green had stated the vehicle was traveling over 70 kilometers per hour. In actual fact John Phillips was traveling between 40 to 45 kilometers, and with the utility traveling at that speed John Phillips had the capacity to mount the curb of the traffic island and take Andrew out.
On 24 October 1997 I had the ownership of my home and my monies stripped away from me
Ten days after the Coronial Inquest into my son's death, I had my home and monies stolen from me. I had said to Chris Shea that I had intended to pursue justice for our son, Andrew David Shea, regardless of the outcome of the inquest. Please read my website http://www.rortinthecourts.com. I have had my marital home (26 Oxford Falls Road, Beacon Hill) and marital monies stolen from me by a complete "stranger" named Peter John Deans. Chris Shea was involved in the fraud. I have been beaten up by Peter John Deans. I had been evicted by Peter John Deans from the home that was purchased with my monies. I have been bankrupted by the the solicitor who was involved in defrauding me out of the possession of my home and monies. I am now destitute. But I have not given up the fight for "justice".
At Christmas time 1997 Chris Shea told me that he was involved in Andrew’s murder
When I was living in my former home at 26 Oxford Falls Road, Beacon Hill, at Christmas time 1997, when the kids were out, I had entered Chris Shea’ room. I had sat down on his bed next to him. I had asked him why he had let the Coronial hearing into Andrew’s death run through his fingers. I said to Chris Shea, that he knew that Andrew had been murdered. Chris Shea agreed with me that Andrew had been murdered. Chris Shea then said to me – “You may as well call me a murderer for that is what I am”. I immediately understood what this meant. Chris Shea was involved in Andrew’s murder.
I was shocked. I went into my room. I sat on my bed looking at the floor. My life was a misery at that precise point of time. The father of my child had killed our child. Chris Shea came into my room. Chris Shea said to me words to the effect that I was no longer to pursue justice for Andrew as I would undo everything that he had worked hard for. I did not think that having sold a son as an organ donor to be murdered was anything that one could work hard for.
From that time on, I had become a different person
Chris Shea left the home permanently on 22 October 1998. I have been fighting for justice through the Courts. Amazing though, that perpetrators of human rights get very angry when they are made accountable for their acts of human rights abuse!
