57 years after the disappearances of his children, Grant Alfred “Jim” Beaumont died in Adelaide, Australia on April 9 at 97 years of age. The obituary notice refers to his missing kids Jane, Arnna and Grant, and says they are “reunited in heaven.” Jim and the children’s mother, Nancy Beaumont, split in the seventies, and Nancy died in 2019.
It’s such a sad story and I don’t understand how three children could have disappeared at once, and from a public place, without anyone seeing or hearing a thing. And I think it’s unlikely the case will be solved, simply due to the passage of time.
Such a sad case. But, as per “how three children could have disappeared at once, and from a public place, without anyone seeing or hearing a thing.”…
These were other times. “I wonder how anyone can let children of their age go alone to the day trip, without constant supervision.
Before, we were leaving our house and car doors unocked. Now we build electric fences.
This is such a weird story, I agree that the sightings are not much to work with and getting rid of three bodies would take work. Who even know if those sightings were really those kids something could have happened at home. We will never know.
As far as I know the parents were completely ruled out as suspects from early on.
You often hear about two kids disappearing together (Delphi, for instance), but three is very unusual. I let my kids go to the park behind our house only if at least one of the neighbor kids is with them. My son also has an Apple Watch that notifies me if he leaves the area. But still… ugh. Usually, I just suck it up and go with them. I don’t like to be paranoid, because these kind of abductions are exceedingly rare, but from decades of missing/unidentified research, I know too much.
