Child Murderer Jailed For Life
A man jailed for two
life terms yesterday
for the rape and murder of two girls is a
repeat offender who
made the same mistake twice.
Paul Stephen Osborne,
28, a factory hand, left his
wallet behind after raping and murdering
Leanne Marie Oliver, 10,
and Patricia Sophia Leedie, 8, at Warana Beach
on Queensland's Sunshine Coast on October
A decade earlier he left
personal papers in a bag
at the crime scene after
sexually attacking and
attempting to strangle a
woman, 18, in Brisbane.
Osborne, of Wurtulla,
on the Sunshine Coast,
received a six-year jail
sentence for the 1985 attack and served three
years and 10 months behind bars.
Yesterday, a Queensland Supreme Court sentenced him to two life
terms for the brutal
bashing murder of the
two girls, plus 18 years for
Justice Glen Williams
said he believed Osborne, who pleaded
guilty to all charges,
should never be released.
Osborne became the
prime suspect for the
murders when he left his
wallet, containing identification, in the sand near
the girls' bodies.
Reports tendered during an appeal against his
1985 conviction revealed
that attack was committed when he was drunk.
This was also the case for
the double murder.
Prosecutor Jeff Hunter
said yesterday Osbome
had consumed about 12
stubbies of full-strength
beer and smoked marijuana at a barbecue held
by a workmate who lived
next door to the Oliver
home at Warana on the
afternoon of the murders.
That same afternoon,
Patricia and Leanne were
last seen by their families
when Leanne lied to her
brother, saying she had
their mother's permission to go door-knocking in the
neighborhood with Patricia to look for odd jobs.
Mr Hunter said Osborne left the barbecue
with his de facto wife
about 4pm but she lost
him after he lagged behind while they walked to
their home in a neighboring suburb.
Mr Hunter said that
about this time a woman
walking her dogs in the
area was speaking with
the girls when Osborne
called out to Patricia.
They were then all seen
at the beach together by
Initially, Osborne denied involvement in the
It was only when he
realised police had found
his wallet near the bodies
that he broke down.
Mr Hunter said osborne confessed but
claimed he could not remember much about the
Asked by police why he
killed the girls, he said- "I
don't know. I don't know
whether I blacked out or
He claimed he could
only remember seeing
the girls on the beach
and said that as he was
leaving they came up behind him to give him his
wallet because he'd left it
in the sand.
He said he had no idea
why he started bashing
the girls- who "seemed pretty nice"- with tree branches.
Justice Williams said
the role of alcohol and
marijuana in the murders
should be considered by
those seeking to legalise
Leanne's father, Alby
Oliver, who found the
girls' bodies in sand
dunes, said he was satisfied with the sentence.
"But one thing I am
not happy about is that
he (Osborne) is still
alive," he said.
The court earlier heard
how Mr Oliver suffered
psychiatric problems as a
result of the murders.
It heard his marriage
with Leanne's mother, Diane, was on the verge of
separation and he found it
difficult to comprehend
