“A South Australian Government Reward for up to $200,000 has been offered for information leading to the apprehension/convictions of the person or people responsible for this murder.”
On 18 December 1991 the body of Yasmin Sinodinos, aged 25 years, was found on the side of a fire track at Anstey Hill. Ms Sinodinos was last seen alive by a friend as she left a house at Gilles Plains at about 6.00 a.m. on Sunday 15 December 1991. At that time she was seen to be in the company of a man as she got into what was believed to be a silver/grey coloured Sigma sedan.
Ms Sinodinos died of significant head injuries. The inference from the scene is that she had been murdered elsewhere and her body washed, re-dressed and dumped at that location.
Ms Sinodinos was a heroin user with many connections to the drug world in Adelaide. She resided day-to-day in Mt Gambier and travelled to Adelaide frequently to associate with friends. It was during such a visit that she died in Adelaide.
DNA was obtained at the post mortem and in November 2012 was matched with a suspect for her murder. A male person was subsequently arrested but acquitted at trial.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1 800 333 000, on-line or email an investigator.
