CASE PROFILE – Daniel Sheppard

Posted on 02/01/2021

On 31 December 1994, Daniel Sheppard attended New Year’s Eve celebrations with his brother and friends at Lennies Tavern in Glenelg, before catching a tram into the city to continue celebrations at Hindley Street in Adelaide.

In the early hours of New Year’s Day 1995, the 19-year old walked alone to the Adelaide Railway Station and boarded the 4.13 a.m. train to Outer Harbour to go home.

There were about 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 4.35 a.m. Daniel got off the train at the Port Adelaide Train Station and was last 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 reward of up to $200,000 remains on offer to anyone who provides information that leads to a conviction in this case and/or the recovery of the victim’s remains.
