Fatal Stabbing at Abandoned Quarry in Queensland: Two Men Accused of Callous Murder

Caboolture, Queensland – Two suspects have been accused of committing a heinous crime by fatally stabbing a man in a “callous” attack near an abandoned quarry in southeast Queensland. Dominic Alaeddin, 19, and Jordan MacDonald, 22, have been arrested and charged with murder in connection to the death of Jai Gray, whose body was discovered north of Brisbane earlier this week.

Authorities allege that the two men lured Mr. Gray to a property in Glass House Mountains before carrying out the brutal attack, fatally stabbing him multiple times. The 25-year-old victim had been reported missing for over a week prior to the discovery of his body at the quarry near Mount Ngungun on Tuesday.

Detective Inspector David Harbison described the incident as an “unprovoked attack on a young person that posed no threats to anyone,” emphasizing the senseless and cruel nature of the crime. Both the police and Jai’s family are struggling to come to terms with the unexpected and unjustified actions of those responsible.

It was revealed that the three individuals were acquaintances, making the circumstances of the crime even more disturbing. Detective Inspector Harbison expressed that Mr. Gray was well-regarded within the community, making the shocking crime even more impactful on the local residents.

Alaeddin and MacDonald have been formally charged with murder and with interfering with a corpse. The case was brought before the Caboolture Magistrates Court, where it was adjourned until the following day for further proceedings. The tragic incident has sent shockwaves through the community, prompting reflection on the senselessness of the act and the impact it has had on all those involved.
