New footage released in Gold Coast bikie investigation

Police investigating the suspected double murder of two men on the Gold Coast say CCTV footage of a car performing a u-turn could be the the answer to the five-month-old case.

Police investigating the suspected double murder of two men on the Gold Coast have released CCTV footage of a white SUV, in the hope of finding the person responsible.

The body of Comanchero bikie Shane Ross, 36, was found in Martin Sheils Park at Tallebudgera last October, about a kilometre from where his business partner, Cameron Martin, 47, died in a single-vehicle crash just days earlier.

Police later confirmed both men died of gunshot wounds.

Martin was found in the wreckage of his white Mercedes Benz with a gunshot wound to the chest while Ross was found dead by a friend under a bridge at Martin Sheils park with a gunshot wound to the head.

Gold Coast Police Detective Acting Superintendent Brendan Smith said new footage had come to light showing a white SUV making a U-turn on Tallebudgera creek road at about 8:18pm on the Friday night.

"This vehicle appeared to be heading inbound towards Burleigh, it's done a u-turn and pulled up outside Martin Shiels park," he said.

"As you know this is just a short distance from there that the incident occurred in which Shane Ross was murdered and about a kilometre away from where Cameron died.

"It's been nearly five months since this horrific crime occurred at Tallebudgera and it's been a very complex and painstaking investigation."

Police are also currently in the process of making an application for a reward.

Ross's grieving widow Alexandra Leigh Ross made a tearful appeal for information about his murder.

"Our three-year-old daughter wants to know if her daddy is coming back. She wants to know when he is coming home," Ms Ross said.

"Why did he leave and 'will he stay dead forever mummy?'.

"Those are the questions I suffer through daily."

Police said earlier in the night the two men had met with a number of people at the Pimpama Tavern before leaving in a dark coloured vehicle to join a gathering in a Tallebudgera park.

Whether that interaction turned bad has formed a large part of the ongoing investigation.

CCTV footage, obtained exclusively by 9News, showed a man wearing a light-coloured shirt and dark shorts, stumbling along Tallebudgera Creek Road on the same night Shane Ross and Cameron Martin were shot dead.

Ross had recently been convicted for his role in a sophisticated fraud operation.

The court was told Ross was involved in a $4.5 million syndicate that sourced luxury cars from across NSW and Queensland.

Fake documents were used to secure loans for the cars that were then sold for profit.

Ross pleaded guilty to three counts of dealing with the property proceeds of crime and dishonestly obtaining property by deception but avoided jail.
