CASE PROFILE – Heather Turner

Posted on 17/01/2022

Schoolgirl Heather Turner spent Friday, 16 January 1998 with a friend at Semaphore Beach.

The 16-year old planned to walk home to Largs Bay to meet another friend. She somehow ended up at a home in Ashton Rd, Davoren Park, with a group of between four and eight people aged in their 20s.

Police believe Heather left the home, which has since been demolished, with the intention of travelling home. She never arrived.

A fortnight later, on 31 January 1998, Heather’s body was discovered partly submerged in a creek at Port Gawler. The group of people Heather saw that evening hold the keys to solving her murder.

The teenager was murdered at an unknown location, and her body moved to Port Gawler area several days before it was discovered. While she was fully dressed in what she was last seen wearing on Friday 16th January 1998, her distinctive shoulder bag – a Tweety Bird bag – has never been recovered.

If you know something, say something – without saying who you are.

A reward of up to $1,000,000 is on offer for information leading to a conviction in this case.
