Murdered

On 16 November 1989 Brett Winn, aged 24 years, disappeared after the store where he worked as an assistant manager, the Hallett Cove Foodland, was broken into. The store was accessed with a key, the alarm was deactivated by an employee code, and $60,000 cash was taken.

The investigation revealed that Mr Winn was involved in a series of break-ins in the late 1980s with two other men.

On 1 February 2002 police located the skeletal remains of Mr Winn under the former house of one of his associates. An associate was charged with the murder of Mr Winn but found not guilty.
