Melissa Caddick disappearance: Anthony Koletti asked if he murdered conwoman wife in $50,000 sitdown


Melissa Caddick’s husband will address whether he murdered his conwoman wife when he sits down with Channel Seven for an interview rumoured to be worth $50,000.

Anthony Koletti has vowed to give ‘the real story about what happened to Melissa’ in his sit down with 7News Spotlight: The Vanishing on Sunday night.

Daily Mail Australia understands Mr Koletti was paid $50,000 for the interview after telling a court in December he had just $1.95 left in his bank account.

‘I can’t keep silent any longer,’ he said in a bombshell preview released on Thursday morning.

‘It’s time for the truth to come out.’

Mr Koletti indicated he knew more than he first let on about his wife’s mysterious disappearance.

Caddick is presumed dead after her foot washed ashore on the NSW South Coast on February 21, some 400km from where she was last seen leaving her Dover Heights mansion.

No other remains have ever been found. 

Several different scenarios were floated after the discovery – ranging from suicide to murder to Caddick cutting off her own foot to escape investigation for her dodgy dealings. 

‘People don’t just disappear. I don’t think it was an accident at all,’ Mr Koletti said.

He squirmed and hesitated when directly asked: ‘Did you murder your wife?’ 

It’s understood Mr Koletti would have signed an exclusivity agreement with the network ahead of the interview.

On Thursday, he refused to comment when approached by Daily Mail Australia outside of his regular takeaway coffee spot, Heart Cafe in Bondi.  

With his interview set to air on Channel 7 at the weekend, Mr Koletti was repeatedly asked about what ‘truth’ is going to come out and if he was paid.

But the former DJ stayed quiet, despite earlier talking to the police detectives – slamming the door of his car in frustration.

The encounter with the officers appears to have been coincidental, but it is understood the detectives were known to Mr Koletti and involved in the investigation into his wife’s disappearance.

The TV show has promised ‘new evidence’ about Caddick’s disappearance will be revealed in an interview on Sunday. 

Caddick, a 49-year-old financial advisor, vanished from her Sydney mansion on November 12 2020 after pocketing up to $30million from investors over eight years. 

Some of her victims, including her own relatives, will also appear on the Channel 7 program on Sunday night.

With charm, designer handbags and a silver tongue she was able to fool friends, family, and even her mother and rob them blind.

Caddick’s brother revealed in the promo he gave his sister $2million before she vanished. 

Chris Koletti, Mr Koletti’s brother, claims his sister-in-law likely meticulously staged her disappearance and didn’t tell her partner because he ‘can’t keep a secret’.

Her crime was a Ponzi scheme involving 60 friends and family, totaling $30 million – only $7 million of which was ever repayed. The rest vanished.

Receivers plan to sell off Caddick’s properties to recoup some of the funds, but cannot do so until they receive a court order.

In the interim, Mr Koletti – who was stripped of his $1700 weekly allowance earlier this year – is free to live the life of a multi-millionaire in a lavish home with breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour.

The Federal Court heard arguments earlier this year that her assets should not be sold off by receivers until her death is confirmed by the Coroner.
