‘Please tell us where he is’: Pair charged with murder over man missing 16 years

A police spokeswoman said that while their initial inquiries suggested Jarvis’s disappearance was not suspicious, new information provided to the missing person squad refocused the investigation and suggested that other people may have been involved in her disappearance.

Court documents released to the press show police allege that Fenwick murdered Jarvis in Wangoom on June 13, 2006.

Jarvis was last seen alive in June 2006 in the southwest of the state. His car was found on fire in Thunder Point shortly after.

Fenwick’s attorney, Kerry Schroder, said his client had a number of medical issues that needed to be monitored while in custody, including an acquired head and brain injury.

She said Fenwick had suffered heart attacks, was currently seeing a vascular surgeon, and needed to take medication regularly.

“We ask that you be medically assessed as soon as you arrive in Melbourne please,” he said.

A man later identified as Jarvis’s son was escorted out of the courtroom after tensions rose.

“Do you understand the case?” the man asked the magistrate. “It’s my father who’s fucking murdered.”

An unknown woman yelled, “I hope you enjoyed watching your damn kids grow up, you dog. Feck in hell.”

Magistrate Simon Guthrie ordered Fenwick remanded to reappear in court in April.

The second suspect, the 70-year-old man from Wangoom, remains in police custody after being charged on Wednesday night and is due to appear at Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Thursday.
