Missing mum ‘exploited’ by lover: inquest

An award-winning teacher and mother-of-two has been pronounced dead by a coronial inquest more than 26 years after she was cheated on by her lover and never found out.

The mysterious circumstances surrounding the 1997 disappearance of 51-year-old Marion Barter were revealed on Thursday by NSW Coroner Teresa O’Sullivan.

He found that the woman had been “exploited” by her lover, Rick Blum, who convinced her to sell her house, deposit $80,000 into an unknown account, and travel abroad with him in June 1997.

Shortly before embarking on an extended overseas trip, the inquest heard Ms Barter changed her name to Florabella Natalia Marion Remakel.
