'Vampire Killer' Posts Chilling Messages Online

A woman who murdered a man with the supposed intention of drinking his blood, during a time she believed she was a vampire, is reported to have left chilling and threatening posts on Facebook.

In 1989 Tracey Wigginton stabbed Edward Baldock 27 times in a park in Brisbane before watching him die.

Wigginton was imprisoned for murder, but was released on parole in 2012. It has now been reported by Australian news outlet 9News that the infamous 'vampire killer' has started putting strange memes and posts on a private Facebook profile.

9News claims Wigginton's public Facebook posts have appeared under the pseudonym Oberon Fairchild, with one such post including a picture which reads: "Now panic because I'm back fuckers."

Another meme states: "Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup."

The 54-year-old is also reported to have posted images of vampires, skeletons, and even real human remains.

The detectives who arrested her 30 years ago told 9News these kinds of posts are 'consistent with the Tracey they knew'.

On the night of the murder in 1989, father-of-four Edward Baldock was walking home from having drinks with friends when he was approached by Wigginton and three other women, who led him to a Brisbane park.

At the park Wigginton is said to have stabbed Baldock 27 times in the neck - almost severing his head - then smoked a cigarette and drank his blood as she watched him die.

The news outlet also interviewed detectives Pat Glancy and Mick Austin, who originally led the investigation.

They said Wigginton initially denied the murder but was arrested following police finding a stolen tombstone and pictures of grave sites in her apartment.

Austin said: "The purpose of the murder was for her to be able to drink human blood and that was achieved."

He added: "She showed absolutely no pity for the victim - didn't treat him as a human being. It was just a means for her to achieve her end."

During her questioning in 1989, Wigginton said: "I withdrew the blade and I stabbed him in the side of the neck. I stabbed him in the other side of the neck and I continuously stabbed him.

"He was making a gargling sound. I knew the blood was coming out of this mouth. I then sat down in front of the tilt-a-doors and I watched him die."

Now Wigginton is living in a town north-west of the Gold Coast, having been granted parole seven years ago.

The Baldock family have since spoken to 9News and said they think something should be done about the social media posts.

The issue was then raised in the State Parliament, with the Member for Kawana, Jarrod Bleijie, asking Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk whether Wigginton's parole needs to be reviewed.

In response Ms Palaszczuk said: "The parole board is independently established and they set the conditions. I'm happy to ask the Attorney-General to look into that matter."
