The missed multi-millionaire Herman Rockefeller -

The missed multi-millionaire Herman Rockefeller
The car was last seen leaving Melbourne Airport at about 9.30pm (11.30pm NZT) four days earlier after Mr. Rockefeller returned from an interstate business trip with his brother. He was last seen on CCTV footage at the airport wearing a white shirt and pin-striped suit trousers and was carrying a plastic shopping bag with about four grapefruit in it. Friends said Mr. Rockefeller, a Harvard graduate and property investor did not have any business dealings in the township of Ballan, where his car was found parked on the roadside. His wife, Vicky, said Mr. Rockefeller had been in great spirits, and there were no disputes, conflicts or hints of a secret life to arouse suspicion. 'We really need the help of the public because we've just reached a dead end so to speak,' Mr. Rockefeller told ABC Radio. 'There's just nothing from 9.35(pm). We've been through the phone records, credit cards, banks, toll ways, everything. I mean everything possible has been checked and there's just nothing.' Mr. Rockefeller's past business dealings have seen him invest in properties across Australia. In New Zealand, he survived three restructurings at Brierley Investments Limited during his more than 14 years as a senior executive. He played a prominent role in the April 1998 boardroom coup that forced the departure of Brierley chief executive, Paul Collins, and chairman, Bob Matthew. In 2000 Rockefeller left Brierley Investments when the company's relocation to Singapore saw a major restructuring of roles. He had been the investment company's CFO for eight years. 'The company obviously damaged a lot of relationships ... both in terms of the banking community and among equity investors,' he told a New Zealand newspaper as he left to take a job with the Pratt Group in Melbourne. The New Zealand Herald reported in 2003 that he was the buyer of a six-level office block in Pet one for $3.5 million. Rockefeller was also a director of listed biotech company Genesis Research. Mr. Rockefeller introduced himself as a 'long-term' community investor. Mr. Rockefeller's wife was last contacted by him around 6pm on Thursday, while she was at the Australian Open tennis tournament. She had her phone on silent and missed the call, but sent him a text message and later received a message back, in which her husband spoke excitedly about their daughter's university offers last week to study medicine.

Gruesome new revelations have emerged about the murder of Herman Rockefeller, claiming that the former New Zealand Brierley executive was dismembered with a A$99 ($121) chainsaw after being killed during a sex tryst that turned violent.
Rockefeller's burned remains were found in the cluttered backyard of a Department of Human Services house in the Melbourne suburb of Glenroy following a massive manhunt launched when the 51-year-old millionaire vanished on January 21 after a four-day business trip. The killing of Rockefeller, a Harvard graduate who was Brierley Investments' New Zealand-based chief financial officer for eight years, has rocked Australia. The revelations reported in Melbourne's Herald Sun yesterday have added macabre details to Rockefeller's secret sex life while appearing to be a happily married husband and father of two in the affluent suburb of East Malvern, and working as a director of 45 companies with interests across Australia. It had already become known that he had a secret girlfriend and a covert life through internet sex sites, where he had allegedly met Schembri and Denny. The pair admitted having been involved in an altercation with Rockefeller the night he went missing, and to having assisted in the disposal of the body. Police initially alleged he was murdered at Denny's home in inner-city Hadfield, and later incinerated and buried at a house in nearby Glenroy. The Herald Sun said that he was killed in a fight that erupted after he arrived without his "wife" for a sex tryst with Schembri and Denny. Rockefeller should have been home celebrating the success of one of his daughters, who had just been accepted to study medicine. It said the homicide squad was told Rockefeller was taken to Heathcote, near Bendigo, and may have been alive as he was transported in the back of a car. At some point he was driven back to Melbourne's northern suburbs and his body dismembered with a chainsaw bought the same day. The junk-strewn property where the body of Herman Rockefeller was found.
