A MYSTERY man involved in a chilling double murder that rocked the city five years ago ended up shot and his body charred in a campsite fire pit.

For the first time, police can reveal the full extent of the brutal killing spree that left three people dead in 2009 and the massive investigation over three states to solve the crimes.

Until now, it was believed two men killed Burleigh Waters security firm owner Sandy Davie and wife Sue.

However, police say a third man was involved in the bloody executions and later murdered.

Mr Davie, 60, was stabbed 10 times at a property he was patrolling and his body left in the toilet with the word “dog” scrawled in blood on the door.

Sue Davie, 50, was killed at her home in Robina the same night, bashed with a claw hammer and stabbed three times through the chest.

Bones belonging to Victorian man Anthony Ward were found in a fire pit at a remote campsite near Tenterfield, NSW, just weeks after the double murder.

His few remains were discovered after police tracked the mobile phones of murder suspects Cameron Stewart and Vladimir Garcia as they fled the Gold Coast.

The exclusive insight into the Davie murders, which stunned the city, come after the Supreme Court rejected an appeal over the conviction and 25-year jail sentences of Stewart and Garcia.

The court suppressed Ward’s involvement and his brutal murder so the pair could have a fair trial.

NSW police have issued arrest warrants to Stewart, 38, and Garcia, 36, for Ward’s murder.

Police believe Ward, a computer company owner, travelled from Melbourne with the pair for a high stakes robbery.

However, Stewart and Garcia, both ex-employees of Mr Davie, cited bitterness over being accused of theft three years earlier and wanted to “settle old scores” with their old boss.

Legal reasons prevent the Bulletin Newspaper revealing Ward’s connection to Stewart and Garcia.

However, police say Ward, 40, had never met the Davies.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Mick Bolin said it was a joint operation between Queensland, NSW and Victorian police.

Cameron Stewart, who with Vladamir Garcia is serving a 25-year-sentence for the murder of Alexander “Sandy” Davie and wife Sue Davie, is alleged to have also murdered accomplice Anthony Ward.

The enormity of the local investigation involved weeks of ground work in Victoria.

Police investigations traced mobile phones from interstate to the streets surrounding Mr Davie’s home in the days before the double murder as his killers studied his routine. He was ambushed as he patrolled a recycling business over a long weekend on May 3, 2009.

Because of the long weekend, Mr Davie was not discovered for nearly two days after the murder, his body lying in a pool of blood, face down in a toilet and his hands bound with zip ties. The security guard had been stabbed four times in the back, four times in the left bicep and once each in the neck and ear.

Forensic officers did not find a single defensive wound.

Vladamir Garcia, who with Cameron Stewart is serving a 25-year-sentence for the murder of Alexander “Sandy” Davie and wife Sue Davie, is alleged to have also murdered accomplice Anthony Ward.

Almost two hours later, police went to Mr Davie’s home to break the news to his wife, Sue, only to find the home locked. After forced entry, police found the home ransacked and Mrs Davie’s lifeless body in the bed.

She had been clubbed with a hammer and stabbed three times in the chest with such ferocity that the weapon passed through her body and punctured the mattress.

She also had no defensive wounds.

Detectives honed in on Garcia and Stewart as suspects, with leads the pair repeatedly claimed they were “going to get Davie”.
