August 2020 results released
Posted on 17/09/2020
During August our unsolved weekly crime segments asked for information to help identify a man wanted over a home invasion at Ascot Park while the occupants slept inside, and also called for information about the theft of 17 pieces of artwork from a Macclesfield home. We appealed to anyone with information about a fatal board collision at Swan Reach to come forward and asked for the public’s help to catch a man caught on camera smashing his way into a Goodwood business.
As well as having 4,121 views of unsolved crime videos on our Facebook page during the month, we reached an estimated 29,965 users and attracted 475 new followers.
We used our social media platforms to profile the anniversary of unsolved cold case murder investigations, including the 1990 disappearance and suspected murder of Karen Williams in Coober Pedy, the murder of retired chef Franco Murat at his Prospect Road home in 1999 and the disappearance of Kirste Gordon and Joanne Ratcliffe who were last seen at Adelaide Oval in 1973.
Our month-long focus was on missing persons in support of National Missing Persons Week.
