Courtney Winter: ZB journalist on John Beckenridge's financial state before disappearance with stepson
Manage episode 364776792 series 2098282
Claims John Beckenridge was in a dire financial straits before vanishing with his stepson, Mike.
Their mysterious disappearance in 2015 is subject to a Coroners' hearing to determine whether the pair are dead or alive.
A detective believes Beckenridge seemed to be living off his credit card, but the boy's mother, Fiona Lu, thinks her ex-husband was stashing cash.
Newstalk ZB journalist Courtney Winter says he withdrew about $900 not long before disappearing.
"Beckenridge had requested a $30,000 dollar loan from BNZ, but that was rejected due to his financial position at the time."
