GIST:  "Watching and listening to every minute of evidence of the coronial inquest into the murders of his sister Lorraine and her friend Wendy Evans has prompted a range of emotions for Eric Wilson. Mr Wilson and his now late mother had pressed for years to have an open coronial inquiry into the murders of the two nurses whose bodies were found in a paddock off Murphys Creek Rd in 1976. They had gone missing while in the Toowoomba area two years earlier. Lorraine, 20, and Wendy, 18, were ultimately raped, tortured and bludgeoned to death, most likely on the day they were picked up hitch hiking on the Warrego Hwy, October 6, 1974. Mr Wilson was pleased State Coroner Michael Barnes agreed to the inquest and happy that at last names of suspects were publicly revealed.  He was even tentatively hopeful that someone might be held accountable. He still is, but after hearing counsel assisting the coroner Craig Chowdhury submit there was insufficient evidence to put anyone alive on trial for the murders, Mr Wilson had been left disappointed. "I'm still hopeful the coroner might have something positive when he brings down his findings next week," Mr Wilson told The Chronicle.
