Man Charged With Murder Over 1998 Missing School Girl
ON the 27 July 1998, 12-year-old Quanne Diec left her home at Seventh Street, Granville to walk to the Clyde Railway Station to travel to the Strathfield Girls High School.
Miss Diec did not arrive at school and there have been no confirmed sightings of her since leaving home on the 27 July 1998.
On 13 August 1998 a reward of $100,000 was offered by the Government of New South Wales for information leading to the location of Quanne Diec or the arrest and conviction of any person or persons who may have been responsible for the commission of any serious indictable offence relating to her disappearance.
That offer was later doubled to $200,000.
However, a man has now been charged with Diec’s murder. At around 3.40pm on Sunday 20 November 2016, a 49-year-old man attended Surry Hills Police Station to speak with detectives about the incident.
He was subsequently arrested and charged with murder and refused bail to appear at Central Local Court today (Monday 21 November 2016).
