Task Force Southern – Robert Atkins

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in the investigation of the unsolved murder of Robert Atkins. Police suspect Mr. Atkins was kidnapped by a gang of criminals who initially held and tortured the 32 year old over a small drug debt. Police believe Mr. Atkins was held at homes in Seaford and North Plympton before being taken to Gepps Cross where it was believed he was blackmailed into committing crimes. Police revealed Mr. Atkins was loaded into a Nissan Pathfinder by a lone man late on November 15, 2020. He was then driven to Port Adelaide where a stolen credit card was used to purchase alcohol. From there the car travelled north to Booborowie before arriving in Port Pirie just after midnight. They say the suspected killer remained there with associates until after sunrise on November 16 when the car headed through Laura and eventually to Orroroo, where police believe Mr. Atkins was murdered and his body dumped. Police are mounting a major land search in the remote part of the state’s mid-north where they are hoping to find the young man’s remains.  A significant reward of up to $200,000 for information regarding this murder is being offered. Police are encouraging members of the public to come forward with information, no matter how insignificant they think it may be.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, report online or via the app.
