Bones identified as Kiesha's‎

The scattered skeletal remains found in Shalvey bushland on the fringes of Sydney's western suburbs more than a week ago have been positively identified as those of Kiesha Abrahams.

The six-year-old, whose family prefers be called Kiesha Weippeart after her father, was reported missing from her home in Mount Druitt on August 1 last year.

A nine-month homicide investigation led to the arrest of her mother, Kristi Anne Abrahams and stepfather, Robert Smith, the Friday before last.

No peace for little Kiesha Weippeart as funeral may be delayed‎

A FUNERAL for little Kiesha Weippeart may not be held for several weeks because of the amount of trauma to her body.
Police yesterday confirmed they have more tests to do on the remains of the alleged murder victim because extensive injuries to her bones have made it difficult to find the exact cause of death.

The news came as a devastating blow to Kiesha's natural father Chris Weippeart and grandmother Liz, who said they are desperate to put the child to rest and give her some much-needed dignity.

"I'm not sure how much more of this sort of bad news we can take," Ms Weippeart said.

"We just want her back, to be able to bury her and give her some peace ... she is just a baby."

DNA tests carried out on the skeletal remains found in a shallow grave in western Sydney bushland on April 22 confirmed they belonged to six-year-old Kiesha. However, police have told the Weippeart family that officers need to do more forensic analysis on the remains before they can be released and buried.

Community embraces Kiesha as its princess‎

THE positive DNA match connecting skeletal remains found in a shallow grave at Shalvey with Kiesha Weippeart has sparked mixed emotions in a woman who befriended her mother Kristi Abrahams, now charged with murder, along with her step-father Robert Smith.

Accompanying the Standard to the bush grave on Tuesday, where the little girl’s remains were found, Alison Anderson said she felt betrayed.

``It’s hard to come out here. It brings up a lot of emotion,’’ she said.

But she claims that she was one of the lucky ones. She got to see Kiesha ride her bike and hear her laugh.

``Everyone has embraced this little girl as their own,’’ she said.

``It’s amazing how much this community has rallied together.’‘

Ms Anderson said when she heard the news in the early hours of Good Friday that two arrests had been made, she went straight to the police station wearing her purple Kiesha shirt that had only arrived the day before.

``I chased the police paddy wagon down the street, I could hear the whimpering noise inside, I knew it was her,’’ she said.

``I stood by her when Kiesha was first reported missing and did so for the first five weeks before I realised that something wasn’t right.

``It’s been difficult to come to terms with. Now everything I am doing is for Kiesha. We need justice.’‘

Friends and family rally for Kiesha as her mother appears in court‎

KIESHA'S mother, Kristi Abrahams, appeared in Penrith Court charged with her daughter's murder.
She sat with her face in her hands and did not speak or move as her solicitor told Magistrate David Day she would not apply for bail.

Her co-accused, Robert Smith, who is Kiesha's stepfather, did not appear.

His solicitor told Magistrate Day Mr Smith would not apply for bail.

The police prosecutor said he expected a police brief for the case to be ready by June 10 and Magistrate Day adjourned the hearing to Penrith Court on June 24.

Outside the courthouse were gathered family members and dozens of people who have followed the case since Kiesha was reported missing from her home in Hebersham on August 1 last year by Ms Abrahams and Mr Smith.

People from Mount Druitt held up signs.

Accused ask to leave jail for funeral of Kiesha Weippeart‎

  • Pair ask to leave jail to attend funeral

  • Girl's father says they're not welcome

  • "I'm telling you, they are not coming"


THE mother and stepfather charged with murdering Kiesha Weippeart have said they want to leave jail to attend her funeral.

Family of accused killers Kristi Abrahams and Robert Smith yesterday revealed the pair had indicated they would like to be allowed to publicly farewell the little girl when her funeral is held towards the end of the month.

However, the girl's biological father Chris Weippeart said "hell would freeze over" before Abrahams and Smith would be welcomed at the funeral of his only daughter.

Abrahams and Smith are both being held on remand in Sydney jails, accused of killing Kiesha in July last year, then burying her body in a shallow bush grave.

From his hospital bed in western Sydney yesterday, where he is being treated for complications associated with his diabetes, Mr Weippeart vowed to do whatever he could to stop the pair from being able to attend the funeral.

"My family are the ones left to deal with all of this and arrange the best send-off for Kiesha that she deserves, and, I'm telling you, they are not coming."

His mother Liz Weippeart said: "It infuriates me just thinking about it."

But relatives of Abrahams and Smith said the pair should be allowed to attend the funeral like any other mourner, given the fact that they had raised Kiesha.

Parents want to attend Kiesha funeral‎

The couple accused of killing six-year-old Keisha Abrahams want to attend her funeral.

Kiesha's mother Kristi Abrahams, 28, and stepfather Robert Smith, 31, have told their families that they wish to leave jail in order to attend the girl's funeral towards the end of the month, News Limited reports on Thursday.

Kiesha was reported missing from her Mount Druitt home in Sydney's west on August 1 last year.

According to court documents, police allege Kiesha was murdered between July 20 and July 27 last year.

Last month, skeletal remains belonging to Kiesha were discovered in a shallow grave in bushland at Shalvey, near her Mount Druitt home.

Smith's mother, Rebecca Smith, told News Limited that the couple should be allowed to attend the funeral.

'I think they should be allowed to go ... they are innocent until proven guilty,' Mrs Smith said.

Kiesha's biological father, Chris Weippeart, 27, has rejected the idea.

A Corrective Services spokeswoman said the couple had not applied for leave and that it was unlikely they would be able to attend the funeral.

"There would also be security concerns about them attending that could not be addressed at such short notice," the spokeswoman said.

Kiesha Abrahams' mother and stepfather denied access to her funeral‎

RUMOURS that Kiesha Weippeart’s mum and stepfather, who have been charged with her murder, would apply to attend the girl’s funeral have been quashed.

Corrective Services Commissioner Ron Woodham recently announced that Kristi Abrahams and Robert Smith would not be allowed at the funeral.

Former friend to Miss Abrahams, Alison Anderson, said she was shocked when she found out they wanted to attend the funeral.

Final cut on Kiesha documentary‎

PLUMPTON filmmaker Saad Adam will abandon his documentary, The Disappearance of Kiesha Abrahams out of respect for Kiesha Weippeart’s family.

In February this year, Adam announced that he would make a film about the disappearance of the six-year-old Mt Druitt girl, whose remains were found in a shallow grave in Bidwill on April 22.

Kiesha’s mother Kristi and her stepfather Robert Smith have been charged with her murder.

Adam told the Standard he would stop the production out of respect for Kiesha’s biological father, Chris Weippeart, and his mother, Liz.

``I tried to put myself in the position of the dad and Kiesha’s siblings,’’ he said.

``Would I want my sister or brother to see a film about this? It’s not the best time to do a film because so much has happened.’‘

But he’s not ruling it out completely. He said he might revisit the story in a few years’ time.

Kristi Abrahams and Robert Smith, charged with the murder Kiesha Weippeart, don't appear in court

ANGRY scenes have erupted outside a western Sydney court where a mother and stepfather charged with murdering Kiesha Abrahams had been expected to appear.

Kristi Abrahams and Robert Smith, who are accused of murdering the six-year-old girl, did not apply for bail which was formally refused in Penrith Local Court.

Solicitors for the pair asked that the matters be adjourned until August 19.

A small group of protesters who gathered outside the court expressed anger that neither Abrahams nor Smith, who remain in custody, appeared in court.

The group, wearing purple t-shirts bearing Kiesha's picture, has vowed to protest during every court appearance.

"Why should they hide, why?" yelled former family friend Alison Anderson.

"They should be forced to appear."

Search for woman after Kiesha shrine fire

Police are searching for a woman after a fire broke out at the unofficial memorial to Sydney schoolgirl Kiesha Abrahams.

Police were called to the impromptu shrine outside Kiesha's former home at Woodstock Ave, Mount Druitt, in western Sydney, about 10pm (AEST) on Tuesday after reports of a fire.

Firefighters extinguished the fire, which damaged some ornaments.

A woman was spotted leaving the scene just after it broke out, police said.

She is described as of Caucasian appearance, about 160cm tall, of medium build with blonde hair.

This is the second fire at the memorial, after a blaze broke out in April.

It is believed that fire started accidentally after a teddy bear fell into a candle and caught fire.

Blacktown Council workers have cleaned up the memorial and restored the undamaged ornaments.
