The 50-year murder mystery of Antonio Giorgi

Posted on 02/05/2020

Today marks the 50-year anniversary of one of SA’s oldest unsolved murders – and with no motive or witnesses it’s likely to remain a mystery without help from the public.

The murder of Antonio Giorgi in 1970 was a shock to those living in Woodville Gardens. Back then the suburb was seeing a growing number of immigrants move into the area, attracted by the employment opportunities in the Actil, General Motors Holden and other factories nearby.

Mr Giorgi was found murdered in the rear yard of his Essex Street home at about 8am on Saturday 2 May.

The 44-year old had been shot several times by what is believed to have been a large calibre handgun.

Neighbours had heard shots at about 2.30am that morning but did not investigate.

Mr Giorgi is thought to have returned home from a late shift at the former GMH plant at Woodville, where he worked as a spot welder.

No motive has ever been established for his murder.

A reward of up to $200,000 remains on offer for information that leads to a conviction in this case.

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