The unsolved shooting murder of Rino Villani

Posted on 17/11/2020

 

Pellegrino “Rino” Villani was gunned down in the driveway of his Magill home on the evening of 17 November 1990.

He had attended a wedding at the Enfield Hotel with his fiancé earlier that evening.

When the pair left the hotel at about 11.30pm, Mr Villani drove to Portrush Road where his fiancé caught a taxi the rest of the way home.

The 29-year old then drove to his house at Jervois Avenue, Magill, arriving home just before midnight.

When he got out of his car he was shot by an unknown person who is believed to have been waiting for him.

He collapsed on the footpath and died from his injuries.

Despite a prime suspect being identified, charges have never been laid.

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
