September 2020 results released

Posted on 15/10/2020

During September we asked for your help to catch a person wanted for setting a teenage girl’s hair on fire on a bus at Davoren Park, shared CCTV of suspect for a Walkley Heights home invasion on 15 July 2020, and encouraged anyone with information about the identity of two men wanted for an unprovoked attack at Mawson Lakes. We also asked for assistance to identify two men who attacked two teenagers at Glenelg, leaving one with a broken jaw.

We had more than 3,600 views of unsolved crime videos on our Facebook page during the month, reached an estimated 28,273 users and attracted 190 new followers.

We called for information on a number of unsolved cold case murder investigations, including the 1992 murder of Carlene Ward, the shooting murder of Bora Altintas and the 1975 disappearance and suspected murder of teenager Marilyn Qualmann.

Our month-long focus was on illegal wildlife trafficking and some of the signs to look out for.

We also shared the great news that Police Credit Union had renewed a 3-year commitment as our major funding partner and announced that Channel 9 Adelaide Managing Director, Mr Sean O’Brien, was our newest Ambassador.
