The search for Jill Meagher has produced reports of a body being found. Has the missing woman's body been located with the help of the suspect who reportedly raped and murdered her? His name has been released as 41-year-old Adrian Ernest Bayley, and he's been charged with raping and murdering the 29-year-old ABC staffer. These updates come as the beginning of what looks to be the end of this tragic and high-profile case.
It's evident that the body of Jill Meagher was found after a brief search today in Melbourne. This of course comes after earlier reports that Adrian Earnest Bayley was assisting officers in locating the body of the woman after he raped and murdered her.
It's reported that her body was found off a dirt road in Gisborne South, but there aren't many details yet to accommodate this developing update in the search for the missing woman. Certainly this is a moment of mourning for her loved ones, but they are closer to having the closure they need in this case.
