NSW Police detectives spent yesterday going over the inner-city Sydney home of Ten presenter Jesse Baird for a second time as the hunt continues for him and his partner Luke Davies. Police divers have also focused on searching a waterway in Newcastle and a dam on a property near Goulburn. A fair bit has happened since the case was made public on Thursday, including the arrest of serving police officer Beau Lamarre-Condon. He handed himself in on Friday, but reports say he is refusing to speak with investigators. And as organisers of next weekend’s Mardi Gras parade consider how to pay tribute to the couple, Baird’s cousin described him as “one in a million”, while a friend of Davies said he was “a kind, beautiful soul with a cheeky smile”. Police Commissioner Karen Webb is expected to make a statement on the case today.
