News Corp reports Police found Mr Thompson’s abandoned car by chance the day after he was believed to have been murdered, but didn’t know the childcare worker was even missing at that stage.
A patrol spotted Mr Thompson’s orange 2016 Ford Mustang, with licence plate SAMMO, north of Brisbane on March 8.
Police now believe Mr Thompson, 22, was murdered on March 7 at the nearby Bald Hills home of Roberto Boscaino, who is facing charges over his death along with anti-ISIS fighter Ashley Dyball.
