forrestfire765:

 

Twenty-two months after Tracey’s murder (November 1978), Police received a phone call from an anonymous person, who told Police that a signet ring Tracey owned was in a rubbish bin outside a chemist in Avondale. The caller gave the call taker the number “126040” and said he would call back later. Officers went to the rubbish bin and found a ring inside, which is believed to have been the ring Tracey was wearing when she went missing and had been given to her by a boyfriend.

 

Is the specific chemist that the rubbish bin was placed in front of known? I wonder if it was a place that the anonymous caller would frequent, or otherwise had a connection to.

 

Also with the map, I notice that a property on Mihini road is used. Is this based on known details about a particular suspect? From what I can see on google maps, at least, Mihini road is now quite industrialised. with few (if any) houses.

 

 

There is a chemist in Great North Road Avondale it's been there for at least the last 20 years.

The Mihini road property jumped out at me when I read this link in the forum. It's where the Body was dumped for that 2001 murder.

"The police case focused on his DNA being found on Ms Jamieson's clothing and the fact her body was found dumped behind a factory where he worked more than 15 years ago."

I have been to the place in Scenic Drive where Tracey was found, but I wouldn't know how to describe the exact location to you. The Police took me there two years ago; It was a very emotional time for me and I didn't really take in the surroundings, if that makes sense. I just know that it was a long drive from Henderson. Sorry I can't help.

My family was told that the ring was found in November 1977. Hope that helps.

 

 

 

Thank you all for keeping this thread going. My family and I really do appreciate hearing about new ideas, suggestions and theories. If anyone would be happy to contact the Police about your theories, they are always keen to listen and investigate possible new leads. The person to contact is DS Murray Free. He is based at Henderson Police Station. His email address is Murray.Free@police.govt.nz. His phone numbers are +64 9 213 7733 and +64 21 191 5510. Thanks again.

Hi Debiarbi thanks for your answer. It's  frustrating when crucial facts are inaccurately stated.

 

I assume your family were told about the ring before November 1978 which would definately make it November 1977.

 

It would be good to know the exact date and time the Police were notified. What day of the week it was, the day of the week the waste bin is emptied etc.

 

The waste bin is directly outside the Avondale chemist. I've been familiar with the area for the last 25 years and nothing has really changed in the street, probably been the same for 15 years before then as well. 

The chemist is across the road from a rough pub (Spiders bar) & near to the main roundabout where the cinema is, the area is busy in the evenings with a lot of takeaways. Also the Avondale Police Station is about a 5 minute walk from there.

I think a number like that can mean almost anything without a context to put it in. It could even be just a random number to verify that the caller was the same person when he resumed contact.

Well yeah but you would not want to put of of anything me from making a suggestion. Could be important. RGB gets +1 for originality from me.

I doubt that particular expression for RGB colour existed in 1976. Got me thinking anyway.

I wonder what 126.040 would have referred to in the library of the time.

Also thought of car chassis numbers and things like that but would not know where to look.

I think it would be a number personal to the caller. Or a number personal to the murderer to be used for black mailing purposes by the caller. It could be anything from 6 digits of a personal tax file number to an ID number given to someone when they're in jail.

I think we should credit the police with some intelligence - which means they will have done all the obvious numbers. Which only leave the weird ones.

The police have looked at loads and loads of suggestions about the number, but I think this is the first time one about it being a colour has come up. I'll send a link to this page to them, in case it's something they might want to follow up on. 

 

If anyone would like to contact the police, please go ahead. The contact details are in one of my replies above.

 

Thank you all for your suggestions; sometimes the things that seem least likely to make sense /mean anything are the things that actually do.
