November 27, 1987
Tinbeerwah, Queensland, Australia
Sian Kingi (12, pictured) is kidnapped, raped, strangled, and stabbed to death

Kingi was abducted when Barrie Watts and then-wife Valmae Beck persuaded her into their van under the false pretense of looking for a lost poodle. She was driven 12km (approximately 7.5 miles) to a remote area where she was raped, strangled, and stabbed. Her body was discarded in a ditch where it was discovered 6 days later.

Watts was given 2 consecutive life sentences without parole which he is currently serving. Beck was given a life sentence as well and died in prison in 2008.
