CASE PROFILE – DAVID ‘JOHN’ SAINT

Posted on 16/04/2021

It is now 30 years since David ‘John’ Saint was murdered.

At about 10.30pm on Tuesday 16 April 1991, the 40-year old’s body was found bashed and lying face down in bushes on South Terrace, Adelaide.

He has suffered a severe fracture of the skull. Lacerations to the rear of his head corresponded with a blood stained ’herringbone’ patterned paving brick found at the scene.

He was known to frequent gay beats along South Terrace, and his death is suspected to have been from a homosexual bashing.

A reward of up to $200,000 remains on offer for information that leads to a conviction in this case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au
