Posted on 19/05/2020
It is now 64 years since Kenneth Hearn was found deceased in the front seat of his St Georges taxi on Golden Grove Road at Salisbury.
It was about 8am on Saturday 19th May 1956 when the 21-year old taxi driver was found shot once in the head at close range with what was believed to be a .22 bullet.
At about 1am on 19 May 1956 Mr Hearn is thought to have picked up a fare in Port Adelaide to take to Salisbury.
The motive is thought to have been robbery as money appeared to have been stolen.
A reward of up to $200,000 remains on offer for information that leads to a conviction in this case.
