Prominent murder investigator Detective Senior Sergeant Ron Iddles is in the spotlight after reports by Fairfax Media today that he has been asked to move on from the homicide squadJanuary 14, 2014 6:39pm
The Bendigo Advertiser and The Age reported today that Sen Sgt. Iddles has been moved from the homicide squad less than a month after his controversial decision to use a graphic photo of Jill Meagher's body at a fundraising event.
The Riv understands the photo was used at a fundraising event in Echuca at one stage.
The reported plan to move him on is said to have infuriated colleagues of the 30-year veteran.
But in a statement provided to the Riv today from Victoria Police, it says there has never been any intention to move Sen Sgt. Iddles out of the homicide squad.
"It’s not uncommon for managers and staff to meet and have discussions from time-to-time. The content of those discussions is entirely confidential," a Victoria Police spokesperson said.
"We don’t intend to provide any further comment."
The Riv understands Sen Sgt Iddles grew up in Rochester and has been the face of a number of high-profile murder cases.
