Richard Banfield: Comment about daughter's organs missing were based on "word on the streets"

Richard Banfield, the father of murdered Republic Bank employee, Shannon Banfield, is today saying that his Facebook post about missing organs, were based on "word on the street".

Banfield's post had contradicted what police confirmed on Tuesday, that Banfield's organs were not removed.

He had posted on on Sunday:

Shannon's organs were not removed

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Wayne Dick says there is no truth to rumours that the organs of Shannon Banfield were removed when she was murdered.

"Absolute no truth and for that I must thank the media at this opportune time for your persistence in trying to find out the truth," Dick told a news conference called specifically to address the investigations into the murder of Banfield.

It came just hours after IAM employee Dale Seecharan was charged with the murder.
