Shawn Newton's Brother Impassioned Plea To Hand Himself In

WA Police have released a video featuring the brother of 42-year-old Shawn Adam Newton, who is wanted for questioning over the death of 35-year-old Rebecca Jane Gascoigne.


Homicide Squad Detective, Senior Sergeant Dean Bailey, had this to say about the on-going investigation.

“We have received a large number of unconfirmed sightings of Mr Newton since we appealed for public assistance on Sunday,” Det-Sen. Sgt Bailey said. “Despite this assistance, and the significant search and investigative efforts by officers, Mr Newton has not yet been located.

“We would like to thank the public for their support and we encourage anyone with information regarding Mr Newton’s whereabouts to come forward.

“Please do not approach Mr Newton as we consider him to be extremely dangerous. Please call 131 444 if you have seen Mr Newton, and please contact Crime Stoppers if you have any information regarding the murder of 35-year-old mother of three Rebecca Jane Gascoigne.”

Mr Newton is described as being fair skinned, about 186cm tall, with a medium build, very short dark hair and brown eyes. He may be in possession of a firearm.
