Tonight, the David Jones sex

scandal. The woman at the centre of

the storm files a $35-million

lawsuit. Claims the little girl

a star of ABC TV faces court on a child pornography charge.

Good evening, I'm Bill Woods. And

I'm Deborah Knight. Also, the woman

who stole millions from her

employer to fund a lavish lifestyle.

And the Opera House flesh fest -

photographer Spencer Tunick

releases his eye catching work.

But first, David Jones is being

sued for $35 million and its ex-

boss for $2 million for sexual

harassment. A former publicist has detailed explosive allegations, and

says she wants to donate all the

money to victims of sexual

misconduct at work. Supported by

her family, 25-year-old Kristy

Fraser-Kirk has spoken out for the

first time. The woman once employed

to build DJ's credibility now

threatens to bring it crashing down.

I am a young woman standing here

today simply because I said it

wasn't OK. Because I said this

should never happen to me or anyone.

I just wanted to be treated with

respect. The former publicist has

filed a $37-million lawsuit in the

Federal Court against David Jones,

its now disgraced CEO and the

entire board. This has been a

devastating time in my life, for me

personally, for my professional

career. The 31-page statement of

claim details allegations of the

boss's public lustings, including

groping and kissing, sex-charged

emails, and repeated requests for

sex at his Bondi apartment. After

rejecting his advances at a dinner

party, Ms Fraser-Kirk claims she

was told:

Three other woman have joined the

action. One claims she was texted:

If the court does award damages All

of that money will be donated to

charity to help those affected by

sexual misconduct at work. The

bombshell couldn't come at a worse

time for David Jones. Tomorrow the

store will launch its spring-summer

collection. But instead of talking

about new clothes and new

leadership, attention will shift to

old indiscretions. We're just very

proud, very sad, very, very sad for

her. David Jones says it will

vigorously defend the lawsuit. Its

former CEO has fled the country and

remains in hiding.

A second day of searching has

failed to show up any sign of

missing 6-year-old Keisha Abrahams.

Ten crime reporter Daniel Sutton

joins us now. Dan, do police have

any fresh clues? The homicide squad

has joined the investigation and

while the family only reported her

missing yesterday, police are

investigating reports she might

have been missing for two or three

weeks. 50 volunteers searched for

any trace of this little girl.

The operation is slow and

painstaking but every square metre

is checked. It is important work.

To the family every moment without

their daughter is heartbreaking.

She has left a big hole in our

heart. We would just like her home.

That home has been declared a crime

scene. Flowers decorate the front

fence. Hope she gets found safe and

sound. The six-year-old has a

younger sister and baby brother.

Her brother and sister, they don't

know what is going on and they miss

her a lot. They just want her back.

Katia's mother has told police she

found her daughter's bed empty on

Saturday night. Relatives and

friends say they have not seen the

youngster for two or three weeks.

Ten News understands she was

removed from her local primary

school after an agreement around

the same time. I am unable to

answer that question. Friends say

Christie is so worried she has been

unable to eat or sleep. If you see

us, Krejza, or ring 000. Police

thought they might be on to a clue

clothing was found in bush land.

campaigning is not for me, I'm

going to play my own game. Will the

real Julia please stand up. What

have we been seeing for the last

five weeks? But Mr Abbott is

failing to make serious inroads as

preferred PM. Julia Gillard is

still on 50% and not changed in the

last week. And to the relief of

candidates battling in the

marginals, the Labor campaign

finally came up with a policy for

the voters. About increasing the

family benefit which goes to your

extra $4,000 a year per teenager in

Paul, was the real Julia Gillard

today any different from the Julia

Gillard we've seen on the first

fortnight of the campaign?

I think we began to see a bit of a

I think we began to see a bit of a

change in the last couple of days.

She has moved away from the endless

repetitions of the moving forwards

but she is still on message and she

did seem a bit more herself, a bit

more relaxed. Really she also said

today that the real message has got

to be about what she is offering

the voters and there are a lot of

people in the Labour campaign who

hope that that is the real message.

One of those elements is the

economic credentials of the Labour

Party. Many have been frustrated

she has not been pushing that. What

we have tomorrow is the Reserve

Bank decision. There have been a

lot of people in the Labour Party

holding their breath and hoping the

Reserve Bank will do what the

markets are saying it will do,

namely sit on its hands. Once that

is done we know there is no

interest rate rise ahead of the

poll. Once that is certain you will

see Labour go on the front foot

with a more definite swing about

the economy and their record.

Pressure is being placed on the

political leaders to ramp up

funding for public education. A

newly formed alliance fears

standards are slipping as families increasingly choose private schools.

An alliance of parents groups, teachers unions and secondary

principals have united to warn

politicians public education is at

a turning point. We are very

concerned, deeply concerned that

the commitment to public education

is in decline, that funding levels

are inadequate. They're calling for

a doubling of funding for public

school students, a building program

for high schools and better pay to

attract people to take up teaching.

If you want people who are the best

and the brightest, you need to pay

for it, but you need to pay for

high quality teacher training and

you need to make sure the training

continues. The group says private

school enrolments have grown by 20%

over the past decade and they fear

the drift to private education will

continue unless public school

infrastructure and resources are

improved. We need to make sure that

political parties, government and

in the context of an election,

alternative government, will invest

more in education, not less. The

Government says the overall

education budget has increased

under Labor. We've increased

funding from something like $34

billion where it was left under the

Liberals to close to $66 billion

under our first term. He's promised

extra money after a funding review

is completed next year. But the

Coalition say there will be no increase in education funding

because Labor wasted billions on

the BER program. Labor has left the

cupboard bare, I think we know that,

and our first priority is to ensure

debt and deficit is reduced.

ABC celebrity Andy Muirhead has

faced a Hobart Court charged with

accessing child pornography. The

host of 'The Collectors' took

unpaid leave from the national broadcaster after Federal Police

charged him in June with one count

of using the internet to access

child pornography. The case has

been adjourned until the end of the

month to give prosecutors more time

to access images on the 34-year-

old's hard drive. He did not enter a plea.

Sonya Causer's crimes are being

managing director, Greg Smith had

little to say today. No, I've got

police it was easy. Over two years

she plundered $19.3 million from

Clive Peeters, stealing on average Clive Peeters, stealing on average

six times her annual salary a month.

Her thefts more than the retailer's

entire pre-tax earnings in 2008,

and - prosecutors said - partly to

blame for Clive Peeters's eventual

collapse. The money spent on 44

properties across Australia. As

well as a Holden Sportswagon for

her husband and a luxury 4-wheel

drive for herself. Thousands more

told court his client had no friends, a borderline unemployable

This program is captioned live. A 22-year-old Sydney woman, who

killed her sister after a fight

over a hair straightener, has died

in jail. Kathleen Worrall stabbed

her sister Susan with a knife more

than 50 times in the family's

Strathfield home in October 2008

after suffering what a judge called

an "abnormality of the mind."

Worral died of natural causes after

a long battle with obesity, mental

illness and a hormonal disorder.

She was due to be released in 2013.

An inquest into the apparent

suicide of Katrina Ploy has heard

the 25-year-old was under the

effect of ecstasy when she died. A

drug expert told the court, it's

unlikely Ms Ploy would have had

suicidal thoughts after taking the

euphoric drugs. Katrina Ploy was 25

when her body was found in the

ocean near notorious suicide spot,

the Gap. Katrina's father Peter is

adamant his daughter didn't take her own life.

I hope they find the truth, that's

all I want, that's all I want, the truth.

What do you think happened?

Well, she didn't commit suicide,

definitely not, I'm sure of that.

Toxicologist William Allender told

the inquest Ms Ploy was under the

influence of ecstasy when she died.

What can you take from that as to

the chances of her committing suicide?

I think it would be pretty unlikely. Why?

People take these drugs for the

feel-good effect, and if you're

feeling good, you hardly feel like

taking your own life.

Katrina's handbag and jumper were

found at the Gap on December 18,

2006. Her car was parked nearby. On

Christmas Day, her body was found

at Lady Bay Beach. But she didn't

have a single mark or injury to

indicate a fall. Physicist Rodney

Cross helped police prove model

Caroline Byrne was thrown from the

Gap. But he told today's inquest a

person could jump far enough to

miss the rocks and land in the

water. Police have identified a

suspect in this case. The man owned

a tattoo parlour which police

believe Katrina Ploy may have

visited leading up to her death.

The man is expected to give

evidence last this week.

Do you think we'll get some answers

from this inquest?

I can't tell you that. I can't tell

you that, but I hope so.

clear is the cost. While the fuel

Time for the finance report and the

case against an interest rate rise tomorrow is gathering steam?

It is after soft inflation and

house prices hitting a wall last

week. According to the housing

industry association new homes

points to a significant drop in

win the Greenbrier Classic by a

stroke. Stuart Appleby got hot

early in the final round and never

really cooled off. In a season in

which he missed the cut 11 times in

23 starts, this performance was eye-opening.

A very aggressive play.

The 39-year-old began his round 7

shots behind overnight leader Jeff

Overton. By the turn, Appleby had

racked up 6 birdies.

Oh, that's a kick in. Appleby was

impeccable from tee to green at the

par 5, 12th, where his eagle putt

saw him draw level with Overton.

3 Perfect strikes.

Appleby closed his spectacular

round with 3 more birdies for an 11-under 59.

There it goes, he's done it!

He's now among golf's famous 5 of

59ers with the evidence ready to

hang in the pool room.

Nice to get on that horse and ride

that sort of feeling for as long as you can. you can.
