CASE PROFILE – Peter Tilbrook
Posted on 25/05/2021
The body of Adelaide teenager Peter Tilbrook was found at about 7.17am on 24 May 1978 in a vehicle parked off the end of Grantham Road, Port Noarlunga.
The 19 year old was sitting in the driver’s seat, slumped against the centre door pillar of the car.
A .22 calibre bolt action rifle was located to his left with the butt on the floor and the muzzle pointing to the roof of the car.
On 25 May 1978, a post-mortem examination established that Mr Tilbrook had suffered two gunshot wounds to the head.
The pathologist determined that either of the two shots would have proven fatal, and because of this finding the death of Mr Tilbrook is believed to be murder.
A reward of up to $200,000 remains on offer for information that leads to a conviction in this case.
