I was keen on playing sport back then and I captained the school cricket side and football team. Derek played both football and cricket but he was better at cricket. ’ The school uniform at Mt Beauty consisted of black shoes, grey trousers, light grey shirt, grey v-neck jumper with green and gold pattern on the ‘v’ and green and gold pattern around the cuffs, and a green tie with gold diagonal stripes.

A group of Victorian homicide detectives had started reviewing a number of unsolved crimes including the 1968 disappearance of 7-year-old Linda Stilwell from St Kilda—a case in which Percy had remained a prime suspect. But a peculiar development had occurred. The detectives could not eliminate the now 56-year-old prisoner as a suspect in a number of other unsolved crimes involving children that were committed in Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide while he was still a teenager. I had recently published my book, Wanda: The Untold Story of the Wanda Beach Murders (New Holland Publishers, Sydney) and I had nominated Derek Percy as one of the three main suspects in the unsolved murders of Sydney teenagers Christine Sharrock and Marianne Schmidt in January 1965.
With no trace of them found, the panic-stricken parents contacted the police. An elderly eyewitness came forward and said that she had seen the three children ‘frolicking’ on a grass area known as Colley Reserve beside the beach with a tall blond man aged 35 to 40. The children were running through sprinklers with the man and flicking him with their towels; they then put their belongings with his on a seat and waited for him to get dressed. A worker in a nearby cake shop told police that she remembered the children buying their lunch with a £1 note—which was a lot of money for a child in those days.
