Can you help solve the cold case murder of David McWilliams?

Posted on 29/07/2020

It’s believed that David McWilliams was murdered on this day back in 1998 by criminal associates.

The 39-year old was most likely shot and possibly buried in the eastern region of country South Australia.

The motive for his murder is believed to have been to silence him from boasting about his own and others involvement in the murder of Leo Daly, a criminal associate who allegedly owed money for drugs.

The suspected murders of Mr McWilliams, Leo Daly, Robert Pendergast and 15-year old Juan Morgan remain as open investigations.

It is believed those responsible for killing Mr McWilliams are also involved in the murders of Daly, Pendergast and Morgan.

While the suspects for each of these murders are known to investigators, further information is needed to charge and prosecute those responsible.

A $200,000 reward is on offer for anyone providing information which leads to the apprehension and conviction of the person or people responsible for his suspected death or the recovery of his remains.

If you have information that might assist please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestopperssa.com.au
