Accused killer goes missing, arrest warrant issued

THE Supreme Court bail afforded accused killer James Darren David Callow has been revoked and a warrant for his arrest issued.

Callow, 23, is facing a charge of manslaughter arising from the death of Vietnam veteran Norman Olsen who died after an alleged altercation with Callow on Bridge St, Wilsonton, in February.

Police claim Mr Olsen was driving past an alleged disturbance between Callow and a woman on the footpath and he stopped to help.

The 65-year-old Tweed Heads man was allegedly pushed backwards during the incident, hit his head and died in hospital the next day.

Callow has not been required to enter any plea to the charge and was initially remanded in custody.

However, he was granted Supreme Court bail on June 27.

His solicitor Sarah Gordon told the Supreme Court in Toowoomba yesterday her firm had lost contact with Callow.

The Crown subsequently brought an application to revoke the 23-year-old's bail.

Justice Peter Lyons formally revoked his bail.
