CASE PROFILE – Emma Pawelski

Posted on 26/11/2023

Emma Jade Pawelski was last seen walking along Regency Rd at Prospect on 26 November 2005 – two days after she had walked out of the house she shared with her partner in Payneham.

While no one knows where the 30-year old was heading, her badly beaten and burnt body was found on the side of a remote track 300m from a gate off Chalks Rd in Mt Crawford Forest, near Williamstown, eight days later.

She was still wearing the same clothes and it is believed she was murdered at another location.

A suspect known to Ms Pawelski has been identified, and investigators have previously received credible information that suggests more than one person was involved.

However, public assistance is still needed.

Crime Stoppers has been a valuable assistance in the investigation and was used by a person who has twice made contact about the murder. Calls received on 7 December 2014, and 26 February 26 2015 appear to have been made by the same person who provided information that has since been shown to be accurate.

Investigators are particularly interested in information about the use of a red Ford Telstar sedan around the time of Ms Pawelski’s death and a distinctive leather belt found on her body. They are confident the red Telstar is associated with Emma’s disappearance and possible movement from Regency Rd up to Mt Crawford.

They know that in the weeks leading up to Emma’s disappearance it was being used by her and her associates.

A reward of up to $200,000 remains on offer to anyone who provides information leading to a conviction in the case.

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