Police to re-enact unusual bikie bushland killing
His friend and Comanchero member, Shane Ross, 36, was found dead in bushland days later, on the corner of the Pacific Highway and Tallebudgera Creek Road at Tallebudgera.
“As part of this re-enactment, passing motorists will be stopped and provided a questionnaire to see if they can provide any information or dash-camera footage from the night of Friday, October 18,” a police statement read.
“As part of the public appeal, police will establish a re-enactment at Martin Sheils Park around 7.00pm, using a white 2015 Mercedes Benz C200 series sedan – similar to the one Cameron Martin was driving along Tallebudgera Creek Road at the time of his death.”
Mr Ross and Mr Martin have been described by detectives as “business partners and friends” and were drinking together at a Pimpama tavern about 7pm on Friday – two hours before the fatal crash.
Detective Superintendent Kerry Johnson said the two victims were drinking with two other people, whom police have spoken to, until about 7.30pm when the group all left the premises.
Police said the victims left in a dark-coloured car, but two hours later Mr Martin was instead driving his white Mercedes before crashing into a tree.
Superintendent Johnson said some kind of meeting took place at the bushland area where Mr Ross was found dead and detectives were trying to gather more information about the people involved.
It is not known whether the meeting took place before or after Mr Martin died in the crash or whether Mr Martin witnessed Mr Ross’ death, but police suspect the deaths are connected.
“It is being treated as a double-murder investigation,” Superintendent Johnson said last month.
