CASE PROFILE – Mark Charles COONIE

Posted on 06/05/2021

Mark Coonie’s killer or killers are still roaming free in the community and your help is needed to find them.

The 33-year old is believed to have been dead a number of days before his brothers found him at about 12.30pm on Wednesday 15 May 2002.

He was found laying on a mattress in the bedroom of his Branksome Terrace home.

It is believed that he had succumb to head injuries inflicted during an assault in the early hours of Sunday 5 May 2002, some ten days before his body was discovered.

In piecing together his last known movements, two good Samaritans found Mr Coonie at a Grote Street bus stop, adjacent to Moonta Street at about 1.30am on Sunday 5 May 2002.

With Mr Coonie bleeding from the back of his head, the pair offered to take him to hospital, but he declined. Instead, they drove him home and he told them that he had been assaulted earlier in the evening.

While his movements that night still remain unclear, Mr Coonie had been at the Mars Bar Nightclub in Gouger Street and other places that night.

A reward of up to $200,000 remains on offer for information that leads to a conviction in this case.
