    BONES OF MAN
    FOUND IN BUSH

    — A month after the Supreme Court had granted leave to presume a man's death, two men found what is believed to be his skeleton. The man, Edward Julius Wecker, disappeared from his home in the Kingaroy district on September 16, 1936. Last month the Supreme Court gave leave to Wecker's son, as proposed administrator of his £9500 estate, to swear his father's death. Ron Lock, of Kingaroy, found the skeleton at Mt. Wooroolin, two miles from Kingaroy, on Sunday. He and a friend were searching for ferns. The skeleton included a lower jaw hone, but was minus a skull. The bones were scattered over a distance of about 30 yards. Fit description Police who examined the bones said they tallied with Wecker's description. In September 1945 a skull, minus the bottom jaw, was found three quarters of a mile from where the skeleton was found on Sunday. Evidence at an inquest which the District Coroner (Mr. S. E. Mosson) held on the skull pointed to it being Wecker's.9

His portrait appears amongst the pioneers in the Jubilee Issue of "The Queenslander" as the veteran who fired the shot heralding separation from New South Wales. The deceased first settled at Coorparoo and owning a large property there did much towards developing this now populous suburb. His life was largely spent in helping others, and he was always a firm friend of the Lutheran Church. He served on the old Bulimba and Belmont boards. Strasburg, where he died was built by him on the German plan, and fitted with every requirement for extensive dairying. It was stated that he was the first to stall cattle, and was one of the pioneers of the dairying industry in Queensland. Throughout a long and wearying illness the deceased was devotedly nursed by his wife."9
