We had cause to respond to a recent abc radio interview with police calling for any points of information 'no matter how trivial' on this horrific family murder in North Epping.
Previously we speculated quietly on a crikey.com.au string regarding street violence on whether there was a racial motive. Next day we rang crimestoppers with a speculation about this relating to an ethnic run business in the Hills district about an hour's drive away, and the unsolved fire disaster at a Glebe Budhist temple inner Sydney in early 2008.
Another variation on that might be a ruthless protection racket perhaps by Triad organised crime (?).

We notice today a Budhist ceremony for the dead family in North Epping as reported in the Sydney Daily Telegraph today 25 July 2009. We draw no conclusions from that religous link either way. We just don't know.
Later that day senior police on ABC tv prime time news stated there is no evidence of racial motivations for this horrific murders.
Now we come to this other unsolved crime, self explanatory public poster here at an ethnic business perhaps an hour's drive from North Epping:
and this same location again public notice from 6 months earlier
We understand from general media reports that the NSW police are putting a high level of resources into this horrific case. One hopes and trust they solve it soon.
