Court hearing date set for the alleged murder of Darren Willis.
Bingara man Bruce Coss will face a hearing before the court over the alleged murder of Darren Willis. Coss is yet to enter a plea, guilty or not guilty, and he will be invited to enter one at the witness hearing.
The expected Court hearing date set, is to be held in March at the Moree Local Court.
Willis’s body is yet to be found and he was last seen in public on 10th December 2010. Two other men are alleged to have concealed a serious offence.
With all those alleged to be involved coming from Bingara, it has been a difficult time for everyone. Having experienced the shock of Willis’s disappearance, the publicity as police leads were released, the allegations and the rumours, all the people of Bingara want to do, is move on.
People want his body found and laid to rest for the sake of his family, and friends.
Darren Willis was a real character who tended to drift around, but he always called Bingara home. One of his great loves was the rugby league team, the Bingara Bullets. Having played minor and senior league for the town, he often turned up at away.
Besides cheering the boys on, he usually accepted an invitation to make the trip home, having a few beers and enjoying the Bullet’s culture. However, after a few days he usually headed off again.
Prior to his disappearance, he had been living in the town for quite awhile and did some mowing and other handyman type of jobs. He was a regular sight on his ride-on mower towing a small trailer to and from jobs.
At the hearing in March witnesses will be called as the next step in the legal proceedings.
