Murdered teen's blood found on suspect's clothes
THE BLOOD of murdered teenager Camilla George was found on clothing in the possession of her alleged attacker, a Rockhampton court heard yesterday.
The Supreme Court trial of Maxwell Ronald Brown, 48, of Townsville, was also shown video surveillance footage which, the Crown said, linked him to the bashing of the 16-year-old in a Rockhampton church ground.
Camilla, of Mount Isa, was found savagely beaten, bleeding and naked, near the Church of Christ, in William Street, early on April 18 last year. She died in a Brisbane Hospital a week later.
Brown has pleaded not guilty to murdering George.
Crown prosecutor Ross Martin yesterday showed the jury footage from a security camera on the Kodak shop in East Street.
It showed a man, who could not be clearly identified, walking with Camilla about 12.18am on the day she was attacked.
They were walking in the general direction of the church grounds, Mr Martin said.
