Peter Stogneff
‰Murdered

On Thursday 27 August 1981, Peter Stogneff, aged 14 years, was reported missing by his parents. He was due to go to school that day, but had also made other arrangements to meet his cousin in Rundle Mall. The cousin did not attend in the city and so it cannot be confirmed that Peter actually went to Rundle Mall.

On 26 December 1981 a property owner was clearing land adjacent to Middle Beach Road, Two Wells, bulldozing some bushes and boxthorns. The occupier returned to the bushes on 20 May 1982 and set them alight with the fires burning for approximately two days. On 22 June 1982, he returned to the area and located in the debris, a human skull. He returned home and contacted the police the following morning. Police then attended and located skeletal remains that have been identified as being that of Peter‰’s.

Information received during the investigation indicated that Peter may have been seen with a male adult at Tea Tree Plaza on the day of his disappearance. This male has never been identified.

Police believe this murder is associated with other high profile murders commonly referred to in the media as the ‰ÛÏFamily Murders‰Û.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on
