On the night of Friday 13 November 2020, missing con artist Melissa Caddick was making a reservation for two at Pompeii Italian Restaurant on Bondi Beach. But the 49-year-old never made it to the dinner to celebrate the scheduled delivery of her new $100,000 diamond necklace and matching bracelet that day.

Around noon that day, her husband, Anthony Coletti, eleven years her junior, finally reported her missing. She had disappeared 30 hours earlier, shortly after a corporate regulator and federal police raided her Dover Heights home over a massive fraud in which she stole more than $23 million from friends and family who thought she was investing their money in stocks.

Melissa Caddick and Anthony Coletti with his and her diamond and sapphire jewelry purchased by Caddick with the stolen funds.

Instead, the stolen millions supported Caddick’s extraordinarily lavish lifestyle with her husband.

During the recent investigation into Caddick’s disappearance and presumed death, it was learned that jeweler Stefano Canturi was scheduled to personally deliver jewelry ordered by one of his best customers on Friday at 5 p.m.

Those baubles, which Caddick never wore, as well as the rest of her $2 million jewelry collection, will now be sold by the court-appointed executors of her estate.

Documents filed in Federal Court on Wednesday show Bruce Gleeson and Daniel Suar of Jones Partners are seeking court approval to sell not only Caddick’s jewelry but also her extensive designer collection, which includes brands such as Christian Dior, Valentino, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Colette Dinnigan, as well as tthe $14,000 Oscar de la Renta ball gown she wore to her school’s fundraising ball.

The receivers, who are trying to sell Caddick’s assets to pay back investors, are also seeking permission to sell her artwork and home goods.

Court documents show that Coletti, who was unaware of his wife’s fraud, set aside 18 pieces of jewelry that he did not want to sell.
