July results released
Posted on 25/08/2020
During July we received more than 250 calls from people wanting to share information about drugs and illegal firearms in the community.
We also saw people sharing what they know about the major crime investigation into the death of Kensington Park woman Ann Marie Smith, assaults that occurred at Anstey Hill and Adelaide, a fatal crash at Shea-Oak Log and an aggravated robbery at Woodcroft.
Our unsolved weekly crime segments asked for information to help identify a person who broke into a Flinders Park home, a man caught on CCTV suspected of starting a grassfire at the Noarlunga Interchange, a person caught on camera breaking into the Lyndoch Hotel and help to solve the unprovoked stabbing of an elderly man out on his daily walk at Findon.
People watched our unsolved crime videos 4,418 times on our Facebook page in July, we reached an estimated 37,956 users and attracted 224 new followers.
We profiled unsolved cold cases, including the 1997 murder or Corrina Marr at her Collinswood home, the disappearance and suspected murder of Gail King and the 2002 suspected murder of Port Lincoln woman Susan Goodwin.
Our mini-campaign focus for the month was on human trafficking, with our social media and website helping to spot what the signs are and explain how everyone can help stop it.
We celebrated an exciting milestone in our partnership with Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation SA Branch – with the first carpark signage going up as part of our united efforts to keep nursing and midwifery staff and the wider community safe.
