Half a million dollars if you crack the Grosvenor case

ACT Policing is again reaching out to the Canberra community for information regarding the murder of Kathryn Gorsvenor 11 years ago today.

Detective Senior Constable Sarah Casey still holds the hope that the half-million dollar reward posted in September 2012 may provide a powerful incentive for potential witnesses to come forward.

“In March last year a witness came forward with information regarding two men loading concrete on Anthony Rolfe Drive into a black ute,” Detective Senior Constable Casey said.

“I would like to appeal to those two men or the people who know them, to seriously consider this reward and contact Crime Stoppers, this amount of money could be life changing.”

Kathryn Grosvenor was 23 years of age at the time of her murder in 2002; she was last seen at her Nicholls home on Sunday, March 3.

There were two unconfirmed sightings of Kathryn in the Gold Creek area the night she went missing, including a sighting at the George Harcourt Inn in Nicholls, where she was thought to have purchased cigarettes between 9.05pm and 9.15pm.

Kathryn was described as 178cm (5’10”) tall with a slim build and long brown/red hair. She was last seen wearing dark-coloured hipster pants and electric blue platform shoes.

Around 9am on Saturday March 9, 2002 a canoeist found her body in Lake Burley Griffin. It had been weighed down by a concrete bollard in Yarralumla Bay, 200m east of Attunga Point.

The $500 000 reward is in place for information leading to the apprehension and subsequent conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Kathryn Grosvenor and an appropriate indemnity from prosecution will be considered for any accomplice who first gives information.

I could be wrong but I sort of remember an interview with Katherine’s parents where they indicated the police did have some idea who the guilty parties might be. Just not enough evidence to make a compelling case.

I heard something similar. But it def wasn’t her parents who said anything like that. The police have said that many times.

fools the generated image which is the bit you seem not to grasp about what they’re talking about.

This isn’t matching it’s using DNA to create an image of its owner.

Even if it’s not ready for prime time talking about it might get a suspect to dye their hair.

Apparently dyeing one’s hair does not prevent dna extraction.

Didn’t they have a strand of hair from under her fingernail

I thought that it’s been possible to match dna from hair samples for quite a while now?

I predict they will solve some of these cold cases when the Eastman enquiry starts to keep it out of the news.I’ve been unfortunate to have met a lot of victims of violent crimes including Allen Redston & Keren Rowland as well as some of those still missing plus another half dozen murder victims.Canberra is not the quiet safe place it’s sometimes made out to be.

Hey, partner of someone you are fairly sure was involved.

Ring the Police from a phone which has the number turned off. Give them your info, and give them a name/number only you know.

If the case comes up trumps, you will be the only one who knows that magic name/number.

Bet the Police would even help with a disappearing act, if necessary.

A year ago the ACT Police publicly stated they were also considering a serial killer: this will not go away with time if that is true.

It saddens me to think that we may never know who the killer(s) of Kathryn and others.What will it take for someone to come forward or will Kathryn end up like the Keren Rowland(1971) and Alan Redmond(1966) murders that most likely will never be solved.Would a multi million dollar reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction entice someone to come forward given that we appear to be no closer to solving these murders and giving the families some closure and justice.
