CASE PROFILE – Shiree Ann Turner

Posted on 07/06/2021


Shiree Turner was fatally stabbed at an Oaklands Park reserve in the early hours of 6 June 1993 after a night out with friends.

The child care worker last saw by friends in the Charles Sturt Tavern, in Hindley St, about 10.30pm on Saturday, June 5.

The friends went off to dance, leaving Shirree holding their handbags. When they returned, she was gone. Witnesses have said she had been in Hindley St and Rundle Mall until 3.10am on that Sunday morning.

At 7.50am her body was found at the front door of a house in Minchinbury Terrace, Marion. Police believe that after being stabbed, Shirree dragged herself to the house in search of help.

In October 1995, police charged petty criminal and convicted sex offender Frank Mercuri with her murder, but he was acquitted. He later committed suicide.

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