NSW Police is concentrating its search for escaped murderer Adam JohnBowhay on the Cooma area until there is reason to believe he has moved on.

The Australian Federal Police dog unit is helping with the search butweather conditions have prevented the police air wing from being deployed,Detective Inspector Shane Box, the acting local area commander for the MonaroLAC said.

”I’m not saying that he is staying in Cooma, what I am saying is thatwe have absolutely no information or intelligence to suggest he has gone to anyother area,” Inspector Box said at a media conference at 1pm on Wednesday.

”In the absence of other intelligence, we need to concentrate oursearch in Cooma until we are satisfied we have done the absolute best we can.He may well have left, yes, but I can’t confirm that he has or hasn’t. Until wesuspect that he may be somewhere else I need to do a thorough job in Cooma.”

Bowhay, now aged 34, was just 18 when he stabbed Steven Jarvis to deathat Casino in 1997. He escaped while doing community work for the Cooma councilat a Cooma oval on Tuesday afternoon.

It is believed Bowhay, who had been at the work site with two otherconvicts, had been at large for some hours before the alarm was raised.

”I can’t comment on that,” DI Box said. ”Police acted as soon as theywere informed of the situation; we responded appropriately.”

While Bowhay is considered dangerous due to the nature of his originalcrime police say he has not been violent or threatening in recent times.

”There are no recent threats or any reason to believe he may harm anyparticular person or groups in the Cooma area.”

He dismissed suggestions the escapee had been spotted in the SnowyMountains.

”We have no intelligence he is hiding anywhere; we have had a number ofpeople ring us with sightings or suspected sightings (but) there have been nopositive sightings of Bowhay.”

Police have spoken to known family and associates but turned up noleads.

”There is no intelligence to suggest he is going anywhere inparticular,” DI Box said. ”We are not aware of any family anywhere aroundhere.

”Police are patrolling the Cooma area as best we can; yes we aremonitoring the roads and we are monitoring farms. Road blocks haven’t beenconsidered at this stage; there is no intelligence to support the need forroadblocks.”

NSW Corrective Services has told Fairfax Bowhay, who was given a minimumsentence of 16 years, had recently had his parole refused by the NSW StateParole Authority.

It was recommended by the Serious Offenders Review Council that heinstead participate in “more approved external leave before beingconsidered for parole”.

“He had progressed to the lowest security classification havingspent 16 years behind bars,” a NSW Corrective Services spokeswoman said.

The body of 42-year-old Mr Jarvis was found in a reserve near the banksof the Richmond River by a couple walking their dog in March 1997. A postmortem revealed he had been stabbed six times in the neck.

Bowhay, then aged 18, and his girlfriend had befriended Mr Jarvis theprevious night at a pub in town. After he was killed the pair ransacked theirvictim’s room, taking a small amount of money and a key card which they latertried to use.

They then fled town and were eventually caught in the northern Victoriantown of Tallangatta.

Bowhay told his NSW Supreme Court trial that he had killed Mr Jarvisbecause he had inappropriately touched his girlfriend.

However in sentencing Bowhay, Justice John Dunford said the murder was a”deliberate and callous attack on one of the less fortunate members of thecommunity, who was quite incapable of defending himself”.

Police urged anyone who spotted Bowhay not to approach him but to callTriple Zero.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, approximately 184cmtall, medium/large build, bald head and clean shaven. He has tattoos around hisneck, upper arm and legs.

Bowhay was last seen wearing work gear which consists of a fluorescentyellow shirt and blue and green King Gee brand long pants.

What can we do about hoons?

Last Saturday at 1.30pm, in the rain, a 4WD ploughed up the new turf only laid days before by the council, in refurbished Prince Edward Park.
Nanjing Night Net

They can’t have been too drunk, the usual excuse, the grass between the kindergarten and the river was also given their attention. A small driving space.

They drove through a fence to do this damage. As the police say, if they catch them, a small fine, an admonishment, never mind if the public and the sporting clubs, schools and the kindergarten who were to use the area this week have to cancel and we have to pay for it.

They do it because they can, how can we show them they can’t – without community action?

I would like to see the police given powers to make these idiots put in the physical work to repair their damage and to have them and their parents, pay towards the cost of reparation. But first we must know who they are? Has anyone any other ideas that could work?
