Posted on 16/12/2020

On Monday 23 December 2002, the body of Steven Armstrong was found inside his unit at Henry Street, Plympton.

The 39-year old’s body was found by his landlord, seated in the lounge room of the unit, with multiple stab wounds.

A post-mortem found that the invalid pensioner’s death had occurred around one week earlier, on approximately 16 or 17 December 2002.

Mr Armstrong lived a private life and had a small group of friends and associates.

Another witness, and nearby resident, provided information that around Tuesday 17 December 2002 that he had heard a lot of yelling coming from the vicinity of Mr Armstrong’s unit which lasted for about 10 minutes.

The persons involved in this altercation have never been identified.

A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer to anyone who provides information leading to a conviction in the case.
