Questions that remain around the disappearance and suspected murder of Northern Territorian Paddy Moriarty will be aired when his coronial inquest recommences in Katherine this week.
The 10 or so residents of Larrimah, located around 180km south of Katherine, at the time of Mr Moriarty's disappearance are expected to be among those called to give evidence at the inquest which is set to restart on Wednesday.
Media from around the NT and the country are also expected to make the journey to Katherine for the inquest.
The coroner began an inquest into Mr Moriarty's disappearance and suspected murder began in 2018, but adjourned it indefinitely.
At that time, counsel assisting the Coroner, Kelvin Currie, said it was "likely someone in Larrimah has evidence that may be helpful in establishing what happened to Paddy".
Mr Moriarty was last seen leaving the Larrimah Hotel, also known as the Pink Panther Pub, around 6pm on December 16, 2017.

An extensive search was undertaken of Larrimah and surrounds, with Katherine volunteers searching the local tip and police divers searching the dam - all to no avail.
In early 2021, NT Police announced they were offering a $250,000 reward for information regarding Mr Moriarty's disappearance, but there still hasn't been any information that has cracked the case.
