 The murder of Donna Steele has really gripped the nation. The thought that a mother can be taken from her children with no warning is truly heartbreaking. With specialist police from Brisbane combing the waterways of Cooktown I spoke with the Mayor of Cook Shire, Peter Scott about the mood around town. Peter explained that the town was quite on edge but went on to explain the issue the community is facing with drug abuse. Without being able to comment to much on the current investigation Peter highlighted that more needed to be done to tackle the drug ICE in his community.
