Unsolved Murder of two young sisters 29th August 1950 Toukley NSW Australia
Two sisters Grace Holmes 18 and Kathleen Holmes 11 from Toukley NSW Australia were brutally murdered on the 29th August 1950.
Unfortunatley due to family hardship at the time there was not enough money for grave stones. To this very day no one has been convicted of the double murder!
My name is Garry Bellenger I'm a Central Coast local resident of 17 years and I'm seeking funds to have a headstone monument for the two young Central Coast girls.
Sisters Grace and Kathleen Holmes of Toukley were brutally murdered on the 29th August 1950, there was a person charged with murder however there was no conviction and the crime remains unsolved to this very day!
After 64 years at rest in unmarked graves I have been given permission by the last surviving family member (Brother of the girls Doug Holmes whom is now 80) to proceed with a headstone monument.
It would be fitting and a beautiful gesture that the community of the Central Coast rally behind this project so that the Holmes sisters will never be forgotten. Please click the link below to make your donation to this worthy cause as little as $1.00 if you like, we need $2150 for a beautiful granite stone monument.
All though this is part of a very dark local history, we can not let this family tragedy fade away into obscurity.
Could you please share this on your Facebook wall & spread the word so that we can make this grave stone monument become a reality.
