CASE PROFILE – Karen Williams

Posted on 05/08/2021

On 3 August 1990 Karen Williams spent time with friends at the Opal Inn at Coober Pedy before attending a private party at nearby Sergio’s Restaurant in the early hours of the morning on Saturday 4 August 1990.

Between 5am and 6am Karen and three friends left the restaurant on foot.

They were collected by a young male and driven to the corner of Medway Drv and Lehman Pl. Her friends left the vehicle and the man drove several hundred metres along nearby Dawes St.

A short time later Ms Williams and the man were seen in a vehicle at the Caltex Service Station, Coober Pedy. They then left the service station and drove south along Hutchison Street before turning left onto the Stuart Highway.

Karen has not been seen since.

In 2013, a 42-year old man former resident of Coober Pedy was arrested and charged with her murder. He was allegedly the last person to see Karen alive. In August 2016, he was acquitted by a Supreme Court judge.

A reward of up to $1,000,000 remains on offer to anyone who provides information leading to the recovery of her remains or a conviction in the case.
