Murder Peter Seaford
Posted on 10/10/2018
Peter Seaford was the part owner of the Mobil Elliott Service Station in Whyalla. At about 4.00 a.m. on Sunday, 12th March, 1989 the Mobil Elliott Service Station was broken into, when an old water pump had been thrown through the front glass door of the service station, which activated an alarm connected to the telephone in Peter Seaford’s unit. He attended the service station and found that it had been broken into. He then rang a Ms Marron and asked her to come to the service station with the keys so that he could turn the alarm off, which she did in her car. They then realised that the takings from the service station were at the flat and he returned to his flat for a short time. When he returned to the service station the police were there talking with Ms Marron. After speaking with police he became aware of a previous unit break at his block that night and he returned home alone to check his unit, whilst Ms Marron remained at the service station. When she returned to the unit she found Peter Seaford on the floor of his unit with severe head injuries. He died as a result of these injuries. There is unmatched DNA recovered from this scene.
