Unsolved-murder of MacKay sisters Judith, 7, and Susan, 5, in 1970.
Sketch of suspect in abduction cases

SA Police are working to establish possible links between the murders of two Townsville schoolgirls and the abduction of five Adelaide children.
They are co-operating with Queensland colleagues and the Canberra Bureau of Crime intelligence, and have established a special file with their Crime Stoppers office to assess calls from the public.
Major Crime Task Force chief, Supt Paul Schramm, confirmed yesterday a joint inquiry was under way into any possible connections between the 1966 abductions of Jane, Anna and Grant Beaumont, the 1973 disappearance of Joanne Ratcliffe and Kirste Gordon and the arrest of Arthur Brown, 86.
Brown was arrested in Townsville two weeks ago for the alleged murder of MacKay sisters Judith, 7, and Susan, 5, in 1970. The arrest followed statements to police by his grand-daughters. He has denied the murders.
It was a picture of Brown alongside police sketches of the man seen in the Beaumont and Gordon-Ratcliffe cases that prompted media attention and revived SA police interest in the cases.
Supt Schramm told interstate media: "We are taking it seriously and we are seeing if there is any connection. We have analysts working very closely together to try and piece together the past 30 years.
Since the Queensland arrest, police have opened a new file in its Crime Stoppers office and reports a "significant" number of contacts from the public volunteering information.
Mr Schramm said the number of calls to Crime Stoppers indicated an on-going interest in the two SA abduction cases.
"We are quite happy for the public to volunteer useful information and will look closely at what comes in."
