Donna Steele Murder Sparks Calls For Security Upgrade

There are reports Cooktown Council will push for funding for a CCTV network, after Donna Steele was murdered in August.

Police investigating the death of the 42-year-old’s death have commented on the lack of security footage available.

Mayor Peter Scott told the Cairns Post, improving CCTV had been on the agenda, but Ms Steele’s death had made it a priority.

“Anything like that helps to highlight inadequacies about the place,” he said. “If we’d had CCTV perhaps this could have been finalised quicker.
