The first sign of something amiss
came just over 30 minutes later
when Ms Blackmoore failed to phone
a friend about 9.35pm as arranged.
The friend called her house five
minutes later but got no reply.
About 11.20pm, Ms Blackmoore's
boyfriend Laurie Anderson, a science
graduate who had been working late
at the university, arrived home.
He found Angela, his girlfriend of
seven months, lying blood-soaked on
the kitchen floor. She had been
stabbed 39 times in a frenzied
attack. The young mother was 10
Profoundly shocked, Mr Anderson
called an ambulance immediately.
Police arrived soon after.
Detective Sergeant Todd Hamil-
ton, officer in charge of the investi-
gation, said the murder weapon,
probably a heavy-bladed cutting
instrument, had never been found.
Her attacker almost certainly would
have blood on his clothing.
There was no sign of forced entry.
Mr Hamilton said it was accepted
during the inquiry that Ms Black-
moore was security-conscious and
would not have opened her door to a
stranger or to anyone who she felt
might harm her.
Angela had a complicated life.

He declined to specify the nature
of the exhibits currently being
examined at ESR Forensic. However,
police were hopeful the results would
take them a step closer to establish-
ing identity of Angela's killer.
POLICE WERE awaiting the outcome of a special-
ist interview this week with a young boy who was
the victim of an alleged abduction attempt in
Prebbleton after school last Wednesday.
The boy, of primary school age, was walking in
Elmwood Drive around 5pm when he was grabbed
Detective Sergeant Craig Farrant says it
appears a youth attempted to drag the boy down
Elmwood Drive toward a waiting vehicle.
We understand the boy managed to grab a stick
and fight back, and managed to break free and run
to his home nearby.''
The offender apparently fled. The boy was not
injured in the incident.
Mr Farrant says the alleged offender, who may
have been in his teens, may be linked to a red,
four-door sports type car.
We are anxious to hear of any sightings of
vehicles or activity in the area around Elmwood
Drive and Prebbleton School late on Wednesday,''
Police had made extensive area inquiries and
had received a couple of calls from the public fol-
