REPORT: Bodies of missing Logan duo found in dam

UPDATE: Police have confirmed that they have retrieved a large metal box from a dam in Kingston, with fears it may contain the bodies of missing Logan duo Cory Breton and Luilana Triscaru.

Detective superintendent Dave Hutchinson said that detectives were still in the process of removing the box, which is approximately 2 metres long and half a metre wide, from the dam.

“We have located, just after 8:00am, a large metal box submerged in one of the dams,” he told media.

“We haven’t been able to open the box, but we do fear the box will contain the bodies of the two missing persons.”

Police allege the large metal box was transported by a green Toyota HiLux utility and are desperately appealing for anyone who may have seen the vehicle to come forward.

It’s believed the bodies were transported on the night of January 24.

The motive behind the murders is yet to be confirmed, however police have suggested that they believe it is drug-related.

Six people, including five men and one woman, were charged with murder on Wednesday night.

Police are appealing for two men, a 32-year-old from Crestmead, and a 25-year-old, to come forward as they believe they may hold vital information into the investigation.

There are reports police divers found the bodies of the pair this morning in the remote dam on Mudgee Street.

It’s where officers have been searching for clues in the disappearance of Corey Breton, 28 and Luilana Triscaru, 31 since Wednesday.

A crime scene has been set up around the area.

It comes as six people charged with murdering the duo appear in a Brisbane court this morning.

Police are yet to officially confirm the reports.

Cory Breton, 28, and mother-of-three Iuliana Triscaru, 31 have been missing for the last fortnight and police held grave fears for the pair.

A 24-year-old Logan Central man, a 36-year-old Crestmead woman, a 31-year-old Crestmead man, a 21-year-old Kingston man, a 22-year-old man of no fixed address and a 21-year-old Slacks Creek man have all been charged with two counts of murder.

The Slacks Creek man has also been charged with one count of possessing a dangerous drug.

They are all expected to appear at the Brisbane Magistrates Court today.

Two crime scenes have been set up in Kingston and detectives are expected to return there today.

On Wednesday, police divers, dogs and a helicopter scoured dams, a creek and bushland around the site but failed to discover any trace of the missing pair.

Detectives are also looking to find anyone who may have dashcam footage from the Cleveland ferry terminal carpark from January 24 to 26.

A silver Mitsubishi Pajero belonging to Mr Breton was discovered in the carpark following his disappearance.
