Beau Lamarre-Condon Has Been Charged With Murder Of Jesse Baird, Luke Davies: Cops Confirm Channel 10 Presenter And His Boyfriend Are Dead As Detectives Open New Crime Scene 165km Away From Sydney

Celebrity chaser and police officer Beau Lamarre-Condon has been charged with the double murder of Channel 10 presenter Jesse Baird and his boyfriend Luke Davies.

Police will allege Lamarre-Condon, 28, shot the pair with his police gun at Baird’s home in Paddington, in Sydney’s inner east. 

The shooting occurred some time after they were last seen at a pre-Mardi Gras party night on Sunday at the Beresford Hotel in Surry Hills. 

On Monday evening, Lamarre-Condon hired a white Toyota HiAce van from Mascot and allegedly used it to dispose of the couple’s bodies, police said. 

Detectives believe Lamarre-Condon then returned to the gun to a police station’s locked firearms safe on Tuesday.

The murder investigation had multiple crime scenes at locations across the city and stretching 165km north to a suburb in Newcastle

He took sick leave from the NSW Police Force for the rest of the day and failed to return to work on Wednesday. 

Bloodied clothes and other belongings including credit cards of former Studio 10 staffer Baird, 26, and Davies, 29, were found dumped in a skip bin in Cronulla on Wednesday. 

That discovery led police to Baird’s home in Paddington where pools of blood and blood-splattered furniture were found – sparking grave fears for the new lovers.

Homicide Squad commander, Superintendent Danny Doherty, said police had matched a bullet cartridge found in the premises to a police weapon. 

‘Police located a projectile at the premises which had been discharged and also a fire cartridge case,’ Supt Doherty said. 

‘This has now been physically matched to a NSW Police firearm and forms part of the evidence for the alleged facts to face court for this 28-year-old man.’

The bodies of Mr Baird and Mr Davies are yet to be found. 

It is also understood police will allege Mr Baird was already dead when friends received messages from his phone and social media accounts on Tuesday.

Superintendent Doherty said a triple-zero call had been made to emergency services but could not confirm whether it was made by Lamarre-Condon. 

It is understood Lamarre-Condon handed himself in to police with the assistance of worried family members. Police raided his family’s home in Balmain in the early hours of Friday morning.

He surrendered at Bondi Police Station at 10.30am on Friday. 

That was about the time Daily Mail Australia reported that Lamarre-Condon’s phone was operational.  

Lamarre-Condon was being questioned by police on Friday afternoon. He will be formally refused bail by police and face court on Friday or Saturday. 

Police had frantically searched for a white van (pictured) they believe was being driven by Mr Lamarre. It was captured on CCTV (pictured) driving past Baird’s home in Paddington 

Lamarre-Condon’s phone had been switched off – but his WhatsApp showed messages were ‘last seen today at 9.55am’ earlier on Friday morning

Police raided a home in Balmain connected with Lamarre-Condon’s family late on Thursday night where they seized a ‘number of items’

New crime scene in NewcastleA street in New Lambton, Newcastle – 165km away from the Paddington crime scene – was sealed off by police on Friday after a white van was sighted near Lambton Pool in Karoola Road which matched the description of the one that officers were searching for. 

‘There’s cops everywhere, walking the streets, door knocking,’ said one local resident. ‘Got the road closed past the pool.’

Another added: ‘The park is taped off with police tape up near the bowling club and lots of police are walking the park at the moment.’

Lamarre-Condon is suspected to have driven the van, registration CW82PM, to a home in the Newcastle suburb where it was spotted at 10pm last night before it had vanished again by 2am.

Daily Mail Australia understands a close friend of Lamarre-Condon’s lives in Newcastle and he would visit her regularly.

No wrongdoing or involvement is suggested of this woman.

Who is Beau Lamarre-Condon?Prior to joining NSW Police, Lamarre-Condon was a celebrity blogger who was notorious for taking selfies with stars including Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga.

He joined the police service in 2019, but hit the headlines again when he was caught on camera tasering a man during an arrest. 

An investigation later cleared him of any wrongdoing.

Just days before Mr Baird and Mr Davies vanished, Lamarre-Condon was still following celebrities, and was pictured grabbing an awkward selfie with Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker in a Sydney street last week.

Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty said Lamarre-Condon was working with a specialist command unit at the time of the alleged murders but refused to go into further detail.

However Lamarre-Condon had recently bragged to others that he was completing a VIP protection module as part of his new duties.
