A 73-year-old Victorian man has been arrested almost 32 years after the abduction, rape and murder of Kylie Maybury, 6, whose body was left in a Melbourne gutter.


On Melbourne Cup Day, 1984, Kylie was visiting neighbour Lorna Simpson with her mother in suburban Preston when she was sent to a nearby shop to buy sugar.
He bought the sugar but didn't make it home - her body found dumped in a gutter in Preston early the next day.
Investigators have described her murder as particularly gruesome.
Gregory Keith Davies was arrested at his Waterford Park home on Thursday and has been charged with the little girl's rape, false imprisonment, and murder.
He has been imprisoned into custody to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday.
Police allege Davies falsely imprisoned and raped the six-year-old on November 6 and murdered her on the 7th.
Ahead of the out-of-sessions hearing, investigators have urged for the two anonymous callers who provided information in the weeks and years after the girl's murder to come forward.
One witness, who called two weeks after the murder, said a white Holden Kingswood station wagon was involved in Kylie's death.
A second person, who called in May 1997, nominated a person of interest.
The station wagon had also been mentioned by a girl to Ms Simpson as she was searching for Kylie on the night she disappeared.
That girl, who would now be aged in her 40s, is also asked to come forward.
Victoria Police Detective Inspector Mick Hughes said the man was not "well-known" to police and he reportedly shared "contemporary information" with investigators leading to his arrest.
"A child should be able to go down the street and buy a packet of sugar - unfortunately this little girl didn't," Det Insp Hughes told reporters.
Homicide detectives told Kylie's mum of the news on Thursday morning before the press conference.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.
A $50,000 reward for information was announced in 1985 and later increased to $1 million.
