Money and jewellery likely motive behind unsolved cold case killing

Posted on 10/11/2019

Theft of a large amount of cash and gold jewellery is a likely motive for the unsolved bashing murder of Andrew (Wilbur) Williamson more than 16 years ago in the state’s far north.

The 43-year old lived alone in a dugout at Tupper Close, Coober Pedy, and sometime after 1.30am on Tuesday 11 November 2003, he was murdered inside his home.

He had only recently moved to his new dugout and his new address was not common knowledge.

He was ill at the time of his murder, which would have made him incapable of physically defending himself during the attack.

In the days leading up to his murder he was seen around the town with a large amount of money.

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

Information from the local community is needed to move this unsolved case forward, with investigators keen to hear from anyone who might have bought the very distinctive jewellery. They might have not known it was stolen, or may have known it was stolen but not taken during a violent murder.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au
