Murdered

At about 6.25 p.m. on 8 December 2004, Robert (‰’Mark‰’) Woodland, aged 36 years, was found by a member of the public in the South Parklands. His body was located approximately 50 metres west of Sir Lewis Cohen Drive, Adelaide.
A post-mortem examination found that Mr Woodland had been the victim of a serious assault that had taken place some days earlier at that location.
Mr Woodland‰’s vehicle, a blue Commodore sedan registration number SA WYZ-736 (image below), was located nearby in the car park of Veale Gardens.
