Brother-in-law spotted at site where Karen Ristevski’s body dumped logo 19/06/2017 A Current Affair

Karen Ristevski's brother-in-law has refused to answer any questions about why he was seen near the site the murdered Melbourne mother's body was dumped almost one year since she disappeared.

A Current Affair reporter Martin King was at the bush site where Ms Ristevski's body was dumped last year with former Victorian homicide squad investigator Charlie Bezzina filming a story to mark one year since Ristevski first disappeared.

Vasko Ristevski, the brother of Ristevski's husband Borce, refused to answer any questions as to why he was at the site in the Mt Macedon Regional Park, approximately 60km from the Ristevski's home in Avondale Heights.

Instead of staying to answer questions, Mr Ristevski and a female companion fled.

Ristevski's body was found inside the national park almost eight months after she went missing.

Police have confirmed her husband is a suspect.

It comes as reports surface of an iPad seized from the family home which had evidence of a Google search on how to detect traces of blood.

There was also search history on how to erase mobile phone data, and a GPS navigator belonging to the family examined by a specialist in the United States, according to a Herald Sun report.

It comes after Victoria Police on Friday released CCTV of a Mercedes Benz SLK coupe, believed to be Ms Ristevski’s, on the day she went missing last June.

The footage captured the black car being driven through Diggers Rest towards the spot where her body was found dumped almost eight months later at Mt Macedon Regional Park.

Further CCTV footage also showed other vehicles of interest that were seen in the area at the time. These include: a white Ford Ranger single-cab ute towing a dual-axle trailer with a yellow mini-excavator on it; a black Holden Commodore ute with a black canopy; a maroon Nissan Patrol wagon with a black roof rack and a spare tyre fixed on its rear door; a white Honda Jazz wagon, and; a silver Kia Rio wagon.

Missing persons squad Detective Inspector Tim Day said he hoped the drivers of the vehicles would come forward with any information.

Insp. Day also issued a strong message to the person responsible for Ms Ristevski’s death, which is being treated as a homicide.

“The person who has done this has a story to tell. They only get one chance to tell it. I encourage them, if they are so inclined, tell it now,” he said.

Insp. Day said Ms Ristevski’s husband Borce “remains a suspect” in the investigation.

Mr Ristevski, 53, has vehemently denied any involvement in his wife’s death.

Ms Ristevski, 47, went missing on June 29 last year after an argument with her husband over finances.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
