On 3 August 1990 Ms Williams spent time with friends and associates at the Opal Inn at Coober Pedy before attending at a private party at nearby Sergio’s Restaurant in the early hours of the morning on Saturday 4 August 1990.

Between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Karen and three friends were picked up in a car and driven to the vicinity of Medway Drive, Coober Pedy where the three other people got out of the vehicle.
