A foster father has been charged with the murder of a 12-year-old schoolgirl and her foster brother has been charged with incest.

Tiahleigh Palmer's body was found on a riverbank almost a week after she vanished in Beenleigh, Queensland, Australia, in November last year.

Her foster father Rick Thorburn, 56, was arrested after police confirmed he was the former owner of a 2009 blue-coloured Ford XR6 sedan seized by police last week in relation to the investigation.

Thorburn has now been charged with murder and interfering with a corpse.



Tiahleigh's 19-year-old foster brother, has also been charged with two counts of perjury and incest.

Her foster mother Julene and 20-year-old older foster brother were also arrested and remain in custody for questioning.

In a Facebook post at the weekend, Tia's biological mother, Cyndi Palmer, claimed the car seized last week belonged to her daughter's foster parents.

She said: "The car that was seized is identical to the one that … and … had, the one they had sold within days of Tiahleigh's body being found."
