CASE PROFILE – Lu Linh Le
Posted on 03/12/2020
Lu Linh Le was last seen alive leaving the Royal Adelaide Hospital on 3 December 1984.
The Croydon man had been receiving treatment for a gunshot injury to a shoulder from a domestic dispute in September. A man was convicted and jailed over that shooting.
On the day of his disappearance, the 25-year old was seen in the company of a young woman. His clothing was left behind at the hospital.
Police say he may have been lured from the hospital on the pretence of going to see his girlfriend.
He was reported missing by his brother on 12 December and his disappearance was officially declared a major crime two years later.
In January 2013 the body of Mr Le was found in a shallow grave near Bakers Road at Long Plains, about 75km north of Adelaide. His body was partially clothed in hospital-issued pyjamas and his hospital identification tag was also located.
Several people of interest have been identified but no one has yet been charged with the murder.
A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer to anyone who provides information leading to a conviction in the case.
