Bundy woman vanished from Brisbane train

A 75-YEAR-OLD mystery involving a Bundaberg woman has never been solved. Marjorie Norval, 30 at the time she disappeared, was from a well-known Bundaberg family. Miss Norval was a public service typist who helped the wife of the then Queensland premier William Forgan-Smith with her social arrangements.

In 1938 Miss Norval had applied for some leave from her job, and told workmates she was going back to Bundaberg for a visit.

She also told friends she was going to Bundaberg for three days but told others a different story,

On November 11, 1938, she was last seen at Brisbane's Central Station.

An inquiry was held in 1943 into Miss Norval's disappearance.

At the end of it, magistrate Mr Leahy said he believed Miss Norval had undergone an operation from which she had not emerged alive; an operation which most people assumed to be an abortion.
