Daniel James Holdom, 41, has been arrested  and is currently being interviewed by detectives at Parramatta Police Station.

Detectives anticipate he will be charged with one count of murder relating to the death of Khandalyce.

Khandalyce was found in a suitcase on the side of a South Australia highway in July this year.

Holdom has already been charged with the murder of the toddlers mother Karlie Pearce-Stevenson.

The development comes only days after the mother and daughter were laid to rest in Alice Springs.

  • Poor darlings – rest in peace now together. So glad you were reunited with each other & your family were able to say goodbye & lay you both to rest. May this bring your family some peace and closure. That and the fact that police are out there working hard to arrest the monster who inflicted this upon you both.


  • I am so pleased they were able to work out who the angel was and they where able to lay them to rest where they can be loved


  • I’m so glad to hear this, when i first heard of the child in the suitcase i wasn’t sure if they would find out what happened.


  • The police have done excellent work in catching this killer. Now I hope the Justice system does it’s part and doesn’t let the victims, their family, and society down.


  • this is very sad. but time will tell the full story. At least their family are getting answers unlike some others.


  • Like ig


  • Sickening and sad and let justice be served.


  • I hope they get the woman involved too :(


  • How can someone do something so terrible? :-(


  • So glad they have managed to gather enough evidence to make a charge. Rest in peace.
