What happened to Susan Goodwin?

Posted on 19/07/2019

Friday, 19 July marks 17 years since Susan Goodwin went missing from her Port Lincoln home, never to be seen again.

The 39-year old was last seen around lunchtime that day back in 2002 after shopping at Coles and Woolworths in Pt Lincoln.

She was reported missing when she failed to pick up her partner from work at 4.15pm that day. Susan’s partner started walking to their Moonta Crescent home but accepted a lift from a work colleague.

When she arrived home she found fresh meat ready to be cooked for their evening meal and Susan’s car parked in the driveway.

Susan had only her clothes and about $140 with her when she disappeared.

The social drug user was known to associate with people involved in the local drug scene, and a number of these people have been spoken to by investigators.

Investigators believe that it is likely she has been murdered by someone who was very close to her, narrowing the list of potential suspects.

Investigators believe that the killer still resides in Port Lincoln and hope that someone within the community breaks their silence and comes forward with information.

Police also believe that it is more than likely that more than one person disposed of her body in a shallow grave within a 30km radius of Port Lincoln.

A number of searches of the bushland and scrub surrounding Port Lincoln have proved fruitless.

A $200,000 reward is available for anyone providing information which leads to the apprehension and conviction of the person or people responsible for her death or the recovery of her remains.

Anyone with information that might assist should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestopperssa.com.au
