CASE PROFILE – Daniel Sheppard
Posted on 02/01/2022
On 31 December 1994, Daniel Sheppard, aged 19 years, attended New Year’s Eve celebrations with his brother and friends at Lennies Tavern Glenelg, before catching a tram into the city to continue celebrations in Hindley Street, Adelaide.
In the early hours of New Year’s Day 1995, Daniel walked alone to the Adelaide Railway Station and boarded the 4.13 am train to Outer Harbour in order to go home.
There were approximately 30 other commuters on the train, including three females he knew from school. On the train Daniel told two of the girls: “I’m partied out … I’m going home to crash.”
Daniel was described as being moderately intoxicated but still in control of his faculties.
At 4.35am Daniel got off the train at the Port Adelaide Train Station and was seen on the southern pedestrian ramp walking towards Baynes Place.
The walk home should have taken 10 minutes but Daniel was never seen again.
He is suspected to have been murdered.
A $200,000 remains on offer to anyone who provides information that leads to the recovery of his remains and/or a conviction in this case.
It is never too late to speak up and share what you know, without saying who you are.
