Fresh appeal in US beauty queen’s Brisbane death
On Friday, detectives released photos of a car towing a council bin through Stathpine on May 6.
“As part of ongoing inquiries investigators reviewing CCTV footage are particularly interested in motorists or members of the public who may have witnessed a white sedan towing a trailer travelling around the Strathpine area on Monday, May 6 this year,” police wrote in a statement.
“Police are appealing for anyone who may recognise the vehicle to come forward.”
Mr Waden is also accused of interfering with his girlfriend’s corpse. He was remanded in custody to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on July 15 after a brief appearance on Friday morning.
Ms Brooten’s daughter Caity, now 22, told Brisbane Times at the weekend that she believed her mother’s body was buried in the yard.
“I kind of suspected that it was going to be a murder case because my mother was a very beautiful woman and she had no other reason to go missing,” she said.
Ms Brooten said her mother moved to Australia to pursue a career in medicine.
“She was super nerdy, she loved anime and MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing games) video games,” she said.
“She use to be a beauty pageant winner from 16 to 21.”
