Two bodies have been found in the search for TV star Jesse Baird and his boyfriend Luke Davies. 

Earlier this month, a search was launched for the Channel Ten star, 26, and his partner, 29, when a bullet casing was found in Baird’s home.

Detectives believe the couple were killed on February 19 in the TV presenter’s home in Paddington, a suburb of Sydney, Australia.

Police have now located their bodies and charged a suspect.

Detectives discovered a crime scene at a second property in rural Bungonia, two hours outside of Sydney.

Baird and Davies’ bodies were reportedly found in surfboard bags, which had allegedly transported the victims.

“Today … at that location, we believe we have located two bodies,” the NSW police commissioner, Karen Webb, tells reporters, per The Guardian.

“The families have been notified. We are very confident we have located Luke and Jesse.

“Each day, each hour was an agonising wait. So I’m relieved for the families… That’s what parents want – they want to know where their children are.”

Det Supt Danny Doherty adds that the bodies were found under a fence at a driveway on the property.

The discovery of the bodies was reportedly made with the assistance of the accused, after initially refusing to cooperate.

It appeared attempts had been made to cover them with rocks and debris.

The NSW premier, Chris Minns, adds: “Our heart goes out to everybody hurting right now. We only hope they can find some peace and closure in the certainty of this sad news.”

The man charged with these crimes is New South Wales police officer Beau Lamarre, 28.

Lamarre is a former celebrity blogger, having met stars such as Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus.

Det Supt Doherty confirms there was ‘some type of relationship at some stage’ between Lamarre and Baird.

This relationship ‘did not end well’ and it is believed that this was the motive for the alleged murders.

Police allege that Lamarre shot the couple at Baird’s Paddington home before hiring a white van to move their bodies.

Officials also allege that Lamarre took a female acquaintance to the remote property last Wednesday.

They claim he broke the lock on the gate before leaving the female there, drove the van onto the property and then returned to the gate 30 minutes later.

Police say the acquaintance, who has been cooperating in the case, said she ‘wasn’t aware the bodies were in the vehicle’.

Police reportedly seized blood-stained clothes, a phone and credit cards from an industrial bin in Cronulla, 17 miles away from the crime scene.

“We’re in this position that a police firearm was used, and that can never happen again,” Webb comments. “So we’ve got to look to ways to mitigate that risk in whatever way we can.”

Lamarre will remain in custody until he appears in court on April 23, while police prepare a brief of evidence.
