Jesse Baird: Police officer charged with murder of missing Australian TV host and partner


A 28-year-old police officer has been charged with two counts of murder after the disappearance of Australian TV personality Jesse Baird and his partner Luke Davies.

Beau Lamarre, Baird’s ex-partner, appeared in Waverley Local Court on Friday (23 February) as the charges of murder were read out to him. He handed himself in at Bondi Police Station earlier in the day.

Australian authorities had expressed “grave concerns” for Baird, 26, and Davies, a 29-year-old Qantas flight attendant, after finding bloodied clothing and other items in a bin in Sydney.

The pair were reportedly last seen in Paddington on Monday (19 February).

Police allege the couple were killed on Monday inside Baird’s Paddington home “between 12.01am and 5.30pm on the 19th February”, according to court documents reported on by ABC News.
