Sydney couple reportedly slain by jilted police lover found dead

Police found the remains of a couple who were reportedly shot and murdered by a resentful police officer on Tuesday.


Police discovered the deceased corpses of Jesse Bairda 26-year-old former television reporter, and Luke Davies, a 29-year-old flight attendant, on Tuesday. Baird and Davies were reportedly shot at Baird's Sydney residence on the Monday of the previous week.


The police commissioner said that she would encourage the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras organisers to reconsider their decision to exclude officers from participating in their annual parade this weekend, which was prompted by the incident.


Beau Lamarre-Condon, a senior policeman with the New South Wales Police Force who was in a relationship with Baird until the end of last year, was charged on Friday with the murders of the two men.


The remains were found in a remote region around 200 kilometres (124 miles) southwest of Sydney. Police said that Lamarre provided them with information on Tuesday that assisted in locating the remains.


The couple's absence from the parade on Saturday has deeply saddened LGBTQIA+ communities throughout Australia, as reported by the Mardi Gras board.


The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Board is concerned that this year's NSW Police March may worsen the significant anguish felt by our communities due to recent events. The Board declared on Monday that they had decided to request the Police not to participate in the 2024 Parade.


This choice was made after careful consideration, especially since many NSW Police officers participating in the Parade are LGBTQIA+ persons dealing with the repercussions of this tragedy. The Board expressed concern that their presence at this year's event may worsen the existing grief and pain.


The Board observed that the 28-year-old accused murderer had participated in the march before.


Police Commissioner Karen Webb, who has participated in the annual march since 2006, said she would meet with the organisers on Tuesday to urge them to reconsider their decision.


It does not constitute a hate crime targeting anyone based on their sexual orientation. Aside from a domestic murder, we are addressing. Webb conveyed his unhappiness over the Mardi Gras board's position.


This time in our society needs togetherness more than any other. Webb said excluding any part of the community from discussions on diversity and inclusion might convey a negative message.


Webb and LGBT activist and independent state lawmaker Alex Greenwich agreed that Police should be permitted to participate in the march.


The LGBTQ community must recognise that the Police serve as our guardians and that we can report crimes to them. Greenwich said that the Police had a significant amount of work to do.


State opposition politician Jacqui Munro said that the state government should cease sponsoring the event due to the absence of police presence, notwithstanding its popularity as a tourist attraction.


Munro said that it is unacceptable for the government to condone a situation where an organisation has instructed its whole staff to be punished for the activities of a few individuals.


State Premier Chris Minns rejected the idea of reducing government funds but remained optimistic that Police would be allowed to participate in the march.


"I refuse to behave in that way." Currently, hundreds of thousands of people are on their way to Sydney. How would it enhance the existing situation if it resulted in the cancellation of the march this year? Minns informed the press.


Other floats were considering boycotting the parade due to the community's strong feelings of loss and anger, as stated by Pride in Protest spokesman Charlie Murphy, who is an LGBT community activist.


The Mardi Gras began in 1978 in Sydney as a public protest against prejudice against homosexuals, which was forcefully stopped by the Police. Since 1998, uniformed police personnel have participated in marches to demonstrate their support and respect.


Anthony Albanese, the Prime Minister of Australia, noted substantial advancements in the police-LGBTQ community connection since 1978.


Albanese said that he believes it has benefited the cops to march.


"The queer community in Sydney is mourning a significant tragedy, but the relationships have improved and become positive," he said.
