Nomads bikie and strip-club manager Todd O'Connor apartment ransacked

05:18 |

Apartment of murdered Kings Cross identity Todd O'Connor was ransacked - but the thieves missed the prize of several hundred thousand of dollars cash which was hidden
Police investigating the execution-style murder of the former Nomads bikie and strip-club manager found the money when they executed a search warrant on O'Connor's city centre apartment.Detectives with Strike Force Colbee have studied the financial and business dealings of the father-of-four, 41, since he was found shot dead in a street in Tempe last week.With fears his death was a gangland hit, police are bracing for his funeral today with up to 500 family and associates expected at St Mary's Cathedral in the city. Among the mourners is expected to be a Sydney nightclub entrepreneur whose brother was president of the Parramatta chapter of the Nomads outlaw motorcycle gang.O'Connor, also a member of the Parramatta chapter, quit the Nomads when the chapter folded last year but is believed to have joined another pseudo-bikie gang called Notorious which provided muscle around some Kings Cross clubs.The ransacking of his apartment rules out a random hit and points to someone who knew a lot about O'Connor's movementsIt is understood that he moved into the apartment after separating from his wife who lives in Sylvania.O'Connor was well known to police, having been questioned by the Wood Royal Commission about his role in the drug trade and twice faced the courts charged with drug dealing. He was not jailed either time.A police spokeswoman last night would only confirm that police with Strike Force Colbee, comprising officers from the homicide, gangs and Middle Eastern organised crime squads, had executed a search warrant on an inner city apartment."Items were located by strike force detectives which have since been seized for forensic examination," the spokeswoman said yesterday."This is part of standard ongoing inquiries," she added.O'Connor, who suffered at least one wound to the head, was found dead at about 7.30pm on Sunday, October 5.His funeral is not expected to be a full-blown bikie event as police have not been asked to provide an escort for a procession of bikes.
