One of Australia’s most notorious killers plans to share where he buried one of his victims 33 years later, so he can see him live in a nursing home for the rest of his life.

Daryl Suckling, now 84, was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted nine years later for the 1987 murder of 21-year-old Jodie Larcombe.

Ms Larcombe was last seen on December 22 of that year in Coburg in north Melbourne.

Suckling denies killing the young woman, but has now hired a lawyer to get his freedom in exchange for the 21-year-old’s body. The Daily Telegraph reported.

He is reportedly hoping to be transferred to a nursing home afterward to see the rest of his life.

New South Wales police said on Friday morning that detectives were conducting a land search in Mourquong, near Mildura on the border with Victoria, after receiving information about where her remains can be found.

The 84-year-old was working as a janitor at nearby Wyarama Station at the time of the murder.

Police search teams had already searched Mourquong for clues last month, but returned this week with forensic material.

The search is expected to continue for several more days.

Mrs Larcombe’s father, Ken, said he didn’t want Suckling to be released from prison.

“We’d rather not find Jodie’s body than see Suckling outside,” Mr. Larcombe said.

“He’s not coming out of living in a nursing home as long as I’m breathing, he isn’t.

“He’s had a blast for 33 f***ing years and I want him to stay in jail.”

Chief Inspector Danny Doherty said renewed efforts to find the remains would use all available resources to ensure the area is searched thoroughly.

“It’s been more than three decades since Jodie’s murder and detectives want nothing more than to return her remains to her family so they can finally put her to rest,” Detective Doherty said.

“The NSW Police Department will always thoroughly investigate new information about the location of missing and deceased persons, even if a conviction has been made.
