At about 7.17 a.m. on 24 May 1978, the body of Peter Tilbrook, aged 19 years, was located in a vehicle parked off the end of Grantham Road, Port Noarlunga. Mr Tilbrook was in the drivers position slumped against the centre door pillar of the car.

A .22 calibre bolt action rifle was located to the left of Mr Tilbrook with the butt on the floor and the muzzle pointing to the roof of the car.

On 25 May 1978, a post mortem examination established that Mr Tilbrook had suffered two gunshot wounds to the head. The pathologist stated that either of the two shots would have proven fatal and as a result of this finding the death of Mr Tilbrook is believed to be a murder.
