$200,000 reward on offer in Focarelli murder

Posted on 29/01/2020

At about 8.50pm on Sunday 29 January 2012 Giovanni Focarelli was shot dead in a vehicle in Flame Avenue, Dry Creek.

His stepfather, Vincenzo Focarelli, was the driver of the vehicle and had also been shot but survived.

Vincenzo Focarelli drove from the scene and stopped a police patrol on Prospect Road, Prospect, but Giovanni was pronounced dead shortly after.

CCTV footage from Flame Avenue, Dry Creek shows a figure running from the car and across Flame Avenue after the shooting.

It is suspected that the motive for the shootings was due to on-going tensions between rival outlaw motorcycle gangs in South Australia and interstate.

A suspect for these shootings has been identified by investigators, however further information is required to provide evidence that would lead to their arrest.

A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer to anyone who provides information that leads to a conviction in the case.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to www.crimestopperssa.com.au

You can remain anonymous.
