Killer who murdered girl, 5, and molested her corpse living close to schools

A monster who murdered a five-year-old girl and molested her corpse is living nearby several schools, to the shock of his victim's family.

Horrified family members of Chloe Hoson who Tim Kosowicz killed in 2003, have described his unsupervised freedom as "a slap in the face".

Kosowicz, who was 22-years-old at the time, strangled young Chloe to death at Lansvale Caravan Park, Sydney, Australia, and dumped her body in a nearby creek.

After explaining he committed the monstrous act because voices had ordered him to do so, Kosowicz avoided a criminal conviction and spent 15 years at the Morisset Hospital's forensic psychiatry ward.

For the first time since his quiet release in 2019, Chloe's family have expressed their shock and horror at the child killer reportedly living in a townhouse near schools and child day centres, according to The Sun.

Chloe's uncle, Peter Chalker, told 7News: "It's got to be wrong. I mean, five schools, daycares in such close proximity.

"To me, as her uncle, I feel that it's just a slap in the face to her. They're not caring about the victims."

Parents have rallied to push through a change in the law that would disclose the location and likelihood of re-offending of someone who escaped a criminal conviction based on a mental illness verdict.

The state government responded by stating that Kosowicz could be moved to a more secure location where his movements can be closely monitored.

One mother told 7News: "It's scary, that's the first thing that came into my mind."

Another, who has three daughters, said: "We should know who is living here, if there is any [person like this] here we need to know it."

Chloe was playing with Kosowicz's cat outside his caravan when he strangled her after she accidentally knocked over his bowl of cannabis.

As she was still breathing, Kosowicz cloaked her head with plastic bags, molested her, and left her body in a nearby creek.

He admitted: "She spilled my pot on the ground and then I lost the plot. Then I blacked out and next thing I was strangling her in my bedroom."

The New South Wales Supreme Court controversially found his mental illness meant he could not be guilty of murder.

Chloe's father Michael Hoson said at the time: "Change the system for starters. Regardless of whether you're sane, insane, whatever, you do the time."

Her mother, Karina Beharrell told 7News: "I felt like justice left the minute that he was allowed to come out.

"My heart's been heavy for a long time, but it's just gotten heavier since I knew."
