Human remains believed to be those of a Perth woman who vanished a decade ago and whose son is serving a life jail term for her murder have been found at a house in Perth.
Ah Bee Mack, 56, was last seen alive in September 2008 at her family’s home in Fairfield Street in the suburb of Mount Hawthorn.
Five years later, in January 2013, her autistic son Brent Donald Mack was convicted of her murder and sentenced to life with a 20-year minimum.
Despite extensive searches of the area, Ms Mack’s body was never found.
Police confirmed officers are at a house in Mount Hawthorn as part of ongoing inquiries related to the disappearance of Ms Mack.
Her son’s Supreme Court trial was told he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from her bank accounts while lying to relatives by telling them she was still alive and living in another suburb.
Mack later claimed to police that his mother had committed suicide in the shower and, after leaving her under the running water for a week, he had buried her body at Lake Gwelup.
