CASE PROFILE – LEO DALY
Posted on 07/04/2021
Leo Daly has not been seen since the morning of 5 April 1998.
The 33-year old was last seen at his home address at Mitchell Park by his house mate. Police believe that Mr Daly was in fear for his life in March 1998 due to drug debts.
It is believed that because of these debts he was assaulted by criminal associates at a house in Mitchell Park and his body taken out to sea, shot and thrown overboard. His body has never been located.
In 1999 two suspects were arrested and charged with Mr Daly’s murder. These charges were later withdrawn when a key witness refused to give evidence. Both persons remain suspects in this matter.
One of the suspects is also believed to be involved in the disappearances and suspected murders of David McWilliams, Robert Pendergast and 15-year old Juan Morgan.
Part of the reason these cases remain unsolved is because the information about the disappearances is tightly held by a criminal group who were mostly committing theft, re-birthing stolen vehicles and drug trafficking.
A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer to anyone who provides information that leads to a conviction for the suspected murder or the recovery of Leo Daly’s remains.
