60 Miutes Incest
SOUTH Australian police have launched an investigation into the deal that the Nine Network struck with John Deaves and his daughter Jenny, who were convicted of two counts of incest.
A police spokeswoman said last night the two were again under investigation because they were not allowed to profit from their crime.
On Sunday, 60 Minutes broadcast a story about the Mount Gambier couple, called Forbidden Love, in which they revealed their relationship had produced a baby, Celeste.
Hamish Thomson, executive producer of 60 Minutes, confirmed that the program had purchased the family clothes for filming.
Thomson said he had promised the Deaves more money to move house because they anticipated they would be hounded out of Mount Gambier after the story broke.
"We bought them some clothes and they might have to move town and we have offered to give them some money to cover the costs of their move, if that happens," Thomson said. "We bought them some clothes because they are very poor. We literally bought them clothes for filming, from Target."
