Man arrested for cold case murder of Phyllis Harrison

Posted on 25/06/2020

A man has been arrested over the 1998 cold case murder of Phyllis Harrison.

The 75-year old (pictured above) was living alone in her Elizabeth South home of 40 years following the death of her husband. She was stabbed multiple times and found dead in her kitchen in March 1998.

The man cannot be identified for legal reasons.

She was well known in the community, and was a foundation member of the Elizabeth Grove Uniting Church and a member of the Elizabeth Bowling Club.

Mrs Harrison was an independent person who drove herself around the district. She was known in the immediate area where she regularly walked her dog.

Mrs Harrison was last seen walking her German Shepherd dog the night before her murder, near her Harvey Road home at about 7.45 pm.

She was particularly security conscious and there were no signs of forced entry, suggesting she may have let her killer inside.
