The unsolved prison murder of Peter Fazzari
Posted on 29/12/2019
At about 8am on Sunday 29 December 1991, the body of Peter Fazzari was found in the Cadell Training Centre with fatal stab wounds.
The 56-year old was serving a life sentence for murdering his brother with a shotgun in 1979 but had served his non-parole period and was due for release the very next day.
A Coronial Inquest finding from 5 February 2002, handed down by the then State Coroner Wayne Chivell, found that Mr Fazzari was attacked in his cell while he was asleep.
During the attack he received a number of stab wounds to the head.
A search of the cell block failed to recover a weapon.
In 2005 further lines of inquiry were provided to Major Crime Detectives that resulted in a further search being conducted at the Cadell Training Centre in relation to the weapon used.
The search failed to recover the weapon.
A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer to anyone who provides information leading to a conviction in the case.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au
