Australian murdered in PNG home invasion

October 7 2002

An Australian supermarket manager living in Papua New Guinea has been stabbed to death during a home invasion.

Police today confirmed the death of Dennis McLean, branch manager of Andersons Supermarket at Eriku, in Lae.

Police said McLean was returning home from a night out last Thursday when he was attacked by a gang who had cut their way through the security perimeter to his compound.

During the attack, neighbours ignored the yelping of McLean's security dog, which was on a leash.

McLean's body was then found by his house girl when she arrived at work the next morning.

Chief Superintendent Simon Kauba said McLean died from multiple stab wounds to his chest and stomach.

Supt Kauba said police were investigating whether the murder was related to a domestic dispute.

He said McLean had recently separated from his Papua New Guinean wife.

"He was out drinking with friends and came home, we believe, just before midnight," Supt Kauba said.

"The culprits may have been waiting for him, and he was stabbed in the chest and lower ribs. "He was left there until he was found by his house girl."

Supt Kauba said one suspect was being questioned over the attack.

Neighbours told local media they heard dogs barking during the night but thought little of it until McLean's body was found.

Police denied the killing, the second in two days, was related to the recent break-out from the Lae police cells by 20 detainees.

Some of the detainees were charged with murder, rape and armed robbery.

Police have recaptured only one of the 20 escapees.

Residents of PNG's major cities - which suffer from mass unemployment and poverty - are often struck by violent crime.

Crime gangs have proved themselves capable of breaking into even the most secure of buildings built by foreigners.

Bring those culprits to justice, what is wrong with the judicial system there anyway. The country should be ashame of such acts, it is saddened that expatriates are being treated that way, its part of jealousy. The military should go in there and get some action towards those evil doerer. Let PNG find out the hard way that the country can't be run without expatriates, there is too much greed and jealousy. They need someone that will give them a good scare. PNG get your act together. Get rid of those evil culprits.
