Accused double murderer Beau Lamarre-Condon waited until he finally spoke to a lawyer before allegedly telling police where the bodies of Jesse Baird and Luke Davies could be found..

Police announced at a news conference on Tuesday that they were “very confident” they had located the bodies of Baird, 26, and Davies, 29, at a property in Bungonia, about 180 kilometers south of Sydney.

Lamarre-Condon, 28, allegedly shot dead the couple on Baird’s rented terrace in Paddington, in Sydney’s inner suburbs, last Monday with his police-issued Glock pistol.

He turned himself in to police on Friday and was charged with two counts of murder, but refused until Tuesday morning to tell detectives where the bodies were..

During a press conference that afternoon, New South Wales Police Deputy Commissioner Michael Fitzgerald was asked why the accused had finally co-operated.

Detective Sergeant Pinazza, the officer in charge, and another officer, Detective Chief Inspector Glen Browne, are believed to have been the police officers who visited the defendant in Silverwater Prison at around 11am on Tuesday.

It was during this meeting that Lamarre-Condon, a former celebrity blogger turned senior constable with the New South Wales Police, allegedly told them where the bodies were located..

He had previously refused to help police find the remains of the two men, but changed his mind after turning to a lawyer.

Police located the bodies three hours later, around 1pm, and within minutes Baird and Davies’ families were informed.

“The defendant finally obtained legal advice this morning and we subsequently went directly to the jail and asked for their help,” Deputy Commissioner Fitzgerald told reporters.

‘There was an attempt to interview him [when he was first arrested] but this is the first time he has given us information willingly.’

New South Wales police have alleged that Lamarre-Condon, 28, shot the lovers at Baird's rented house in Paddington, eastern Sydney, at 9.50am last Monday.

The bodies were eventually discovered at a second crime scene elsewhere in the same suburb, about 20 minutes away.

The change in focus came after new details emerged that Lamarre-Condon allegedly underwent surgery hours after being accused of shooting the two men to death.

The celebrity hunter-turned-cop was reportedly booked for stomach surgery last Tuesday, 24 hours after the couple was allegedly killed.

A timeline outlined on Monday by New South Wales Police Deputy Commissioner David Hudson alleged Lamarre-Condon, 28, shot the couple at Baird’s home in Paddington, eastern Sydney, at 9:50 am last Monday.

Lamarre-Condon is alleged to have rented a white Toyota HiAce van at Sydney Airport before returning to the $3 million rented terrace house to collect their bodies on Monday night when the van was caught outside the house on CCTV. .

On Tuesday, police allege the officer made “partial confessions” about the murders to an acquaintance, but the alarm was not raised until Wednesday after the couple’s bloodied clothes and belongings were found in a bin in Cronulla, in South Sydney.

Lamarre-Condon is believed to have been admitted to hospital for outpatient surgery last Tuesday, a day after the alleged shooting, 2GB Radio reported.

The day after the surgery, Lamarre-Condon is alleged to have driven the van 180 kilometers south of Sydney to Bungonia with an acquaintance to a remote property in an apparent attempt to dispose of the bodies at one of several dams.

Lamarre-Condon then allegedly drove the van to Newcastle, 165km north of Sydney, arriving around 8.30pm on Thursday at the home of her police officer friend Renee Fortuna, where she allegedly borrowed a hose to clean the vehicle. .

There is no indication that Ms. Fortuna knew what Lamarre-Condon had allegedly done or was involved in any criminal act.

Lamarre-Condon is alleged to have driven back to Sydney, to his uncle Brian Lamarre’s home in Grays Point, in Sydney’s south, before dawn on Friday morning and then handed himself in at Bondi police station to 10.39 a.m.

Senior police officer reveals why some alleged murderers refuse to say where their victims’ bodies are

Criminal psychologist Tim Watson-Munro said some alleged killers did not reveal where their victims were buried because they enjoyed the power and media attention that came with “controlling the narrative”.

“Generally speaking, some people enjoy the game, they enjoy the power and they enjoy being the center of attention, however perverse it may be,” he told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday.

‘I mean, there’s a presumption of innocence with this guy, and in this case, I think we have to get away from him and his way of thinking.

‘But the question is, you know. Why don’t some people cooperate that way?

‘It’s about power, it’s about attention. And it’s probably about wanting to control the narrative for as long as possible.”
