Funeral held for father of murdered Ipswich girl

THE funeral of Terry Holland, father of murdered Ipswich girl Leanne Holland, was held yesterday.

Mr Holland died at the weekend after suffering a heart attack in the grounds of the Goodna Rugby League Club on Saturday morning.

It is believed Mr Holland was living in a caravan in the Goodna Rugby League club grounds.

His funeral was held at the Heritage Park Crematorium at Goodna.

Leanne was 12 years old when her body was found near Redbank Plains Rd in 1991.

Graham Stafford, who was dating Leanne's sister at the time, was arrested and charged with Leanne's murder.

But in 2009, Mr Stafford had his conviction for murder quashed and a retrial was ordered.

The Director of Public Prosecutions ruled in March 2010 that it would not proceed.

Police said there were no other persons of interest in relation to the case.

Last year the case against Mr Stafford was closed by the Queensland Police.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie then ordered former Supreme Court Judge Kenneth Mackenzie QC to independently review the case.

Mr Bleijie said he expected a decision, on whether a retrial could proceed, would be made early this year.
