Aussie Back Packer Story Has A New Twist.

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12...money-feud.html

Fancy that, money playing a big part in the argument. The whole episode stinks.

When a British backpacker lost in the Outback miraculously came back from the dead, he was reunited with his father amid jubilant scenes. So why, just one week later, does Richard Cass now say in this exclusive interview that the pair are locked in a feud over money?

It should have been the most moving of reconciliations. After 12 days missing, presumed dead, in the Australian bush, Jamie Neale’s return was nothing short of miraculous – a gift his parents could hardly believe possible.

Jamie, a confident 19-year-old, had been backpacking when he strayed from the path and found himself lost in the densely wooded valleys of the Blue Mountains.

His chances of survival were slim – so slim that his father built a shrine to his vanished son after days of fruitless searching.

It was only as he headed home defeated from Australia that Richard Cass heard the extraordinary news ...that, somehow, Jamie had been found – alive.

After such drama, you might expect relief and gratitude, yet these are not the emotions inspiring Mr Cass right now.

Jamie and his father are no longer speaking, it has emerged. The two men are tangled in a quarrel so rancorous, it has torn the family apart. And the issue dividing them with such bitterness is money.

Today, in an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Mr Cass accuses his son of stealing thousands from him after Jamie refused to share the £50,000 proceeds from an interview on Australian TV.

They both appear to be completely selfish twonks.

If at least one of them doesn't end up in jail I will be disappointed.

This is one of *those* stories isn't it.

You just want there to be something devious and fake about the whole thing.

Like that lunatic evil woman who knifed her boyfriend. Can't remember her name but I'll never forget her face.

No doubt they will have paid back the Australian authorities the money wasted trying to find the idiot. :rolleyes:

Are we organising a kangaroo court here? Let's hold it out back...

Some of the other reports of this said that the father wants the money to payback to the australian govt that had to spend all the money to find the idiot son. Whereas the son wants to keep it.

If this is true then the father sounds like a decent chap and the son a complete ahole.

The father, Richard Cass, is being interviewed on R5 right now. Boy, can he talk!

He is defending his position of estrangement from his son, and denying it's about money. The kid now doing a training film for Search and Rescue in Australia!.

I still can't help thinking there's another angle to all this.

I missed the prog opening. Anyone hear it? Impressions of this guy?
