More evidence needed to arrest the killer of Jason Plews

Posted on 23/11/2020

The suspected murder of Jason Plews continues to frustrate investigators, because they have key information about what happened to him but lack sufficient evidence to arrest the person they believe responsible.

The 31-year old was last seen on 22 November 2001. He has not made contact with any friends or relatives or accessed his bank account.
Prior to his disappearance he was the subject of threats and assaulted.
It is strongly suspected that he has been murdered.
Mr Plews was living at a Salisbury North house with a man and a woman who were in a relationship.

The woman is the mother of Mr Plews’ son and was thought to be rekindling their relationship.

He was reported missing by police in January, 2002 and his suspected death has been declared a Major Crime.

Despite extensive police inquiries his remains have never been found. Information received during the investigation has suggested that body may have been placed into a mineshaft or hole.

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

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at
