Chilling twist in the case of a missing female “con artist” who “cuts off” her own FOOT found on the beach

Shocking new details have emerged in the case of the missing scammer, who is accused of stealing millions from her customers, two years after her disappearance.

Melissa Caddick, 49, disappeared on November 12, 2020, a day after police officers and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission raided her home in the affluent Sydney suburb of Dover Heights.

Three months later, her rotten foot was mysteriously found washed up on Bournda Beach, about 250 miles south of the capital.

Police assumed the gruesome discovery meant she was dead – although other extraordinary theories have also begun to swirl.

There has been speculation that Ms Caddick may have cut off her own foot to throw authorities off course.

She is said to have scammed at least £7.3million in invested funds from over 60 clients including family and friends to subsidize her extravagant lifestyle.

The businesswoman is said to have operated a Ponzi scheme while her parents even claimed she scammed them into buying a property.

An inquest into the mysterious case is now underway in the New South Wales State Coroner’s Court, which will examine the circumstances of her alleged death.

It has now emerged that Ms Caddick’s husband Anthony Koletti was previously a suspect in her disappearance, news.com.au reported.

The attorney assisting coroner Louise Coleman told the inquest that three officers suspected her spouse may have been involved.

She explained they spoke to Ms Caddick’s son, who is referred to as Witness B as he was the last person to see her alive.

Sergeant Trent Riley, who is due to testify, said in a statement Koletti made several “strange” remarks after the 49-year-old’s disappearance.

Ms Coleman said: “He alleges that Mr. Koletti told him several lies, that his story changed several times, and that he made ‘strange and unusual comments about various aspects of his version.'”

Another police officer also expressed concern about Koletti, saying he was searching the cliffs of Dover Heights for his missing wife.

Ms Caddick is said to have told a friend she would “stop it” at this point during a walk, at a time when she appeared to be under financial pressure.

But Koletti had already told officers Ms Caddick had been fine the night before and did not suffer from any mental health problems.

And he even said if she went into hiding she would probably stay at the Meriton at Bondi Junction, although there is no record of her ever staying there.

The coroner also obtained a police document that said an unnamed officer “believed that Koletti likely killed the deceased.”

Mr. Koletti had told him several lies, his story had changed several times, and he was making strange and unusual comments on various aspects of his version.

But Detective Sergeant Michael Foscholo, who led the investigation, said he found “no evidence to support the theory”.

The top police officer instead said he “takes the personal view that (Ms. Caddick) took her own life shortly after leaving the house”.

Koletti was never charged in connection with her disappearance.

However, Ms Coleman pointed out that many “inconsistencies” in his story have not been “identified or pursued” by New South Wales Police.

The court heard police did not search Ms Caddick’s mansion or the couple’s cars until 19 days after her disappearance.

Koletti also did not give a statement to police until November 13, more than 24 hours after the businesswoman went missing.

Another officer described him as “calm, relaxed and seemingly indifferent” while his report “didn’t seem to make any sense”.

Koletti told officers he woke up at 6am to find Ms Caddick gone, describing it as “completely out of character”.

Authorities are liquidating the missing 49-year-old’s assets, including her multi-million dollar home, two luxury cars and designer clothes.

Koletti has filed a matrimonial property lawsuit in federal court based on his “financial and non-financial contributions.”
