POLICE CALL OFF COOBER PEDY SEARCH

Peter Caldicott, 7News Adelaide, July 31, 2013,

Relatives of missing teenager Karen Williams said they are devastated police have called off a search for her remains in Coober Pedy.
After a week of digging up mine shafts, police said they are disappointed they have not yet solves the 23-year-old murder mystery.
Police have been in the town since last Tuesday searching for the remains.
Detectives were confident they would crack the case within days.
“Definitely, we’re disappointed with the result of this search, but we’re certainly not defeated,” Detective Superintendent Des Bray said. Karen’s loved ones are shattered.
“We was really hoping and its devastating news that it’s going to be closed off today,” Joanne Dingaman said.
Relative Andrew Dingaman said: “Well I suppose they tried their best, but it is pretty sad that they couldn’t find anything for the people, community and town, so it’s probably a sad day for everybody.” The 16-year-old went missing after a night out in August 1990.
Detectives said the search has not been a waste of time because it eliminates certain possibilities and moves the investigation forward.
“Anybody who has assisted offenders or concealed information, those people do have something to worry about,” Det Supt Bray said.
They are hoping more public help will give Karen’s family the closure they need.






Outback Breakaways Conservation Park near Coober Pedy returning to traditional ownership

http://www.abc.net.au Posted Tue Aug 6, 2013
The Breakaways Conservation Park near outback Coober Pedy is being returned to its traditional owners.
A native title agreement has been struck with the Antakirinja Matu Yunkunytjatjara (AMY) people and a formal ceremony will be held in the town on Tuesday.
A management board for the 15,000-hectare park will have four AMY people, two from the District Council of Coober Pedy and one from the South Australian Government.
Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation Minister Ian Hunter said the new management structure would have a number of benefits.
"It's only the second such park in South Australia so it's pretty historic. One of the key benefits is that we get the benefits of the local knowledge," he said.
"This is ages, ages old land, I think the geology estimate is about 70 million years old and of course the Aboriginal people up there have been living with that environment for a very, very long time indeed, so having that expertise and knowledge brought to the management committee can only help."
