Six charged over Logan pair's murder
Police fear the bodies of two missing Logan associates are in a large metal box they are dragging out of a dam south of Brisbane.
Detective Superintendent Dave Hutchinson says the submerged box was discovered on Thursday morning and is yet to be opened as it's being taken out of the dam near a Kingston crime scene.
Six people fronted court on Thursday over the disappearances of Cory Breton, 28, and Iuliana Triscaru, 31, from the Logan area.
"We do fear the box will contain the bodies of the two missing persons," Det Supt Hutchinson said.
Police have charged a group of six people with murder following the disappearance of a southeast Queensland man and woman last month.
Cory Breton, 28, and Iuliana Triscaru, 31, from the Logan area south of Brisbane haven't been seen since January 24.

A third person, Lelan Harrington, 23, disappeared around the same time but was found safe and well by officers at a Logan address on Tuesday afternoon.
Police set up crime scenes at two locations in Kingston on Wednesday - a rental property where Mr Harrington was a tenant and vacant bushland at the end of dead-end Mudgee Street.
Three people were arrested on Wednesday evening in a dramatic roadside stop on the Gateway Motorway near the Brisbane suburb of Mt Gravatt.
The group of five men and one woman, whose ages range from 21 to 36, are all facing two counts of murder.
One of the men, a 21-year-old from Slacks Creek, has also been charged with one count of possessing a dangerous drug.
The accused are all set to face Brisbane Magistrates Court later on Thursday.
Police are also expected to continue their search of waterways and bushland at the Mudgee Street location.
