Former partner of Karlie’s alleged murderer could be a suspect

The former partner of the man charged with the murder of Alice Springs mother Karlie Pearce-Steveson is reportedly being interviewed by police,

41-year-old Daniel James Holdom fronted court yesterday, charged with murdering the young mother, allegedly in 2008.

Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s body was found in the NSW Belanglo State Forest in 2010, while the remains of her young daughter Khandalyce were found near a South Australia highway earlier this year.

A woman believed to be Holdom’s former partner is reportedly being questioned by police about the murders.

It comes after a photo of Khandalyce has been found on the Facebook page of Holdom’s ex-girlfriend Hazel Passmore, which was uploaded just month’s before her mother’s alleged murder.

Police have previously alleged Holdom had at least one female companion who stole Ms Pearce-Stevenson’s identity and robber her bank account.

But police have refused to comment today as to whether Ms Passmore is a suspect.
