Wieambilla shooting: Madelyn Train says officers weren’t given critical information

Daughter of doomsday prepper cop killers scolds cops for ‘failing to pass on vital information’

  • Daughter of cop ambush shooters has given interview

The daughter of conspiracy theorists who shot police dead on their remote property, the young officers sent there were denied vital information.

Madelyn Train, in her 20s, admits none other than her parents are responsible for the cold-blooded act of ambushing four officers as they exited their patrol car, but claims police were warned they were suspicious of authority.

The perpetrators Nathaniel and Stacey Train – her biological parents – and Nathaniel’s brother Gareth – who later married Stacey and assumed the role of her father – had strengthened their estate in Wiembilla in the country of Queensland as they increasingly turned their backs on society and deeper into conspiracy madness.

The trio shot police officers Rachel McCrow, 29, and Matthew Arnold, 26, as the officers exited their patrol car and entered the driveway to the property during a routine welfare check in December.

Two other officers narrowly escaped the barrage of bullets, while neighbor Alan Dare, 58, was shot in the back as he approached to investigate the gunfire and a grass fire.

Police wanted to speak to Nathaniel about an outstanding warrant for firearms offenses.

This along with a missing persons report made by his estranged second wife Vanessa after he disappeared from their home in Walgett, NSW, brought officers to the property in Wiembilla.

Vanessa received hostile messages from Gareth when she reached out to find out where he could have gone.

Just 2.5 hours before the trio opened fire, Maddy said she received a call from a Walgett detective that went to voicemail because she was at work.

The person identified herself as a detective and asked her to call him back.

“I think they contacted us to confirm if Nathaniel was missing and to get contextual information,” Maddy told 9News in an interview that aired Monday night.

“But they should never have sent anyone there until they had all that contextual information.”

Maddy claims that Vanessa also alerted the police.

“She had told the police officers that there was distrust of the police, that Gary was distrustful of the police.”

“The New South Wales Police apparently didn’t disclose that to the Queensland Police,” Maddy claimed.

Both NSW and Queensland police have said they would not comment on the case as it is the subject of a corona investigation.
