The husband of fraudster Melissa Caddick has made a series of bombshell claims about his wife’s disappearance, and presumed death, almost a year after the high-flying millionaire vanished from Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
Anthony Koletti says he “knows why she died” months after Caddick’s decomposed foot was found on a remote beach hundreds of kilometres from their Dover Heights home.
The rest of her body was never recovered.
“I can’t keep silent any longer,” he said in a preview for 7 News Spotlight.
“It’s time for the truth to come out.”
Koletti had remained largely silent since his wife vanished in the early hours of November 12 last year, just two days after the corporate watchdog raided their home.
Caddick’s teenage son told police he heard the front door close on November 12 at about 5.30am.
Caddick was running a Ponzi scheme through her business Maliver.
She was accused of swindling clients, mainly family and friends, out of millions of dollars to fund her lavish lifestyle.
In the bombshell Spotlight preview, Koletti claimed someone killed his wife – though police have repeatedly pointed to the likely outcome that Caddick took her own life.
“I know why she died,” he said.
“Someone got greedy and wanted her dead.”
