But as per the NSW Education departmentNathaniel had not been seen in the state’s education system since August 2021 but officially resigned in March. As per the reports, he was dismissed from his last role and was not happy to get vaccinated. Initially, Nathaniel and Stacey both worked in the Queensland education system. Nathaniel while working in northern NSW sent 16 emails over two weeks regarding the need for assistance and problems there.

As per the statement of Queensland Police Commissioner, Katarina Carroll to the reporters-

“That person had been missing for up to about 12 months, but people had been in contact with him,”

Nathaniel was also a principal at the Yorkeys Knob State School in 2017 in Far North Queensland. Barron River MP Craig Crawford said that he did not know that why he left the School and under what circumstances.

Mr. Crawford said- “I was completely shocked when I saw his name and face to realize this was the same person who was our principal at Yorkeys Knob. “He behaved and acted like any principal I’ve dealt with in my electorate,”

“He certainly gave no indication he could be capable of such an unfathomably evil act.”
