Victoria's State Coroner has begun a fresh investigation into the death of the former prime minister Harold Holt, who vanished while swimming nearly
36 years ago.
Graeme Johnstone has told staff to gather information on the disappearance near Portsea on December 17, 1967, and will consider a public inquest.
Under the law at the time an inquest could not be held without a body. The probate application on the estate was made on the "presumption of death",
but under the Coroner's Act, 1985, a coroner must now investigate suspected deaths, including drownings.
Police have checked old files and have found 103 cases of suspected drownings where bodies were never recovered. Holt's name is on the list that has
been submitted to the coroner
