Call for info on murders of Robert Atkins, Trevor King and Jeff Mundy
Posted on 01/12/2021
The community has been asked to provide information on a number of unsolved and suspected murders in the southern area of Adelaide.
There are three murders in particular where the victims – Robert Atkins, Trevor King and Jeff Mundy – and suspects are all believed to have been associated with the local methamphetamine and criminal scene across the southern suburbs of Adelaide.
In 2020, Robert Atkins is thought to have been held captive for about a week before being forced to commit crimes for his captors. It will be alleged that the 31-year old believed if he obeyed direction of his captors he would be let go. The last known sighting of Robert was captured on CCTV, in the presence of another man purchasing items from a store. Both are seen leaving the store together.
Robert is believed to have been murdered within the area of Port Pirie and Booborowie and his body left near Orroroo. The vehicle – a 2010 black Jeep Cherokee S556AJE – believed to have been used by the suspect was captured by a safety camera on its way back to Adelaide near Willaston.
In February 2019, Trevor King was the victim of unlawful detention and serious assaults, resulting from a drug debt. The drug debt was initially $1000 but increased to $10,000 and then $50,000 due to the lack of a timely re-payment. In late January 2020, the 41-year old’s body was located in West Lakes and was initially treated as a suicide. Further investigations have led to his death being declared a major crime and the suspicion he was murdered.
Jeff Mundy was reported missing on 23 December 2020. The last known sighting of the 36-year old was on 19 December 2020 when he was recorded on CCTV filling a script at a chemist in the Colonnades Shopping Centre at Noarlunga. After an extensive investigation, there is no evidence consistent with him being still alive. His death has been declared a major crime and he is believed to have been also murdered.
Police have stated that the men have all been murdered by low level drug dealers and petty criminals, who bully, threaten and stand over others.
