Simon Corbell has announced a big new push to crack outstanding murder cases in Canberra:
Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Simon Corbell, has today announced the ACT Government would provide $2 million in rewards to help ACT Policing secure a conviction in four of Canberra’s unsolved murder cases.
The four unsolved murder cases will now each attract up to a $500,000 reward that would be paid for information that leads to the apprehension and subsequent conviction of the person or people responsible for the respective murders.
The following unsolved homicides are now the subject of new reward offers:
1. Mr Francis (Frank) John Campbell: murdered in his Mawson unit between 11.30pm on Sunday May 1, 2005 and 3am on Monday May 2, 2005. Mr Campbell died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head;
