Andrew (Wilbur) Williamson
Andrew (Wilbur Williamson, aged 43 years, resided alone in a dugout at Tupper Close, Coober Pedy. Sometime after 1.30 a.m. on the morning of Tuesday 11 November 2003, Mr Williamson was the victim of a serious assault inside his house which resulted in his death.
A quantity of gold jewellery (see below image) and cash was stolen from him. He had only recently moved to a new dugout and his new address was not common knowledge. Mr Williamson was a known cannabis dealer and it is suspected this may have played a part in his murder. In the days leading up to the murder he was seen around the town with a large amount of money and due to ill health he may have been seen as an easy target.
