Hunting Irma’s killer

By johnboy - 6 November 2012 7

Today (Tuesday, November 6) marks 13 years since grandmother, Irma Palasics, was brutally murdered at her home in McKellar.

ACT Policing Criminal Investigations Detectives from the Homicide team were outside the Woden Plaza this morning speaking with members of the public, in the hope someone can assist in identifying the teenagers present at an attempted aggravated burglary which could possibly be linked to the murder.

In August this year police released CCTV footage of the attempted aggravated burglary which occurred in Phillip on May 16 2010 at the Pitch & Putt. Evidence left at the scene of that attempted burglary may be linked to other evidence left at the scene of Irma’s murder 13 years ago.

ACT Policing is still calling for the people involved in the attempted aggravated burglary, or anyone who thinks they might know the offenders involved, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

About 9.30pm on Saturday, November 6 1999 two men forced their way into the home of elderly couple, Gregor and Irma Palasics in Grover Crescent, McKellar.

Mr and Mrs Palasics were bound and savagely beaten before the men ransacked their home, stealing cash and jewellery.

After the offenders left, Mr Palasics was able to free himself and phone police however, the injuries suffered by his wife were too severe and she died at the scene.

The reward for information leading to the successful resolution of Irma Palasics’s murder has increased to $500 000. Indemnity from prosecution will be considered for any accomplice who first gives information.

For more information on the murder of Irma Palasics visit the ACT Policing website at www.police.act.gov.au.

Wouldn’t it be great if the girl friend of one of the identifiable 4 at the Yamba Club decided to turn her life around and had a chat to the Police. Could walk away with a life changing bank balance.

Could also end up dead of a drug “overdose” or tied to a lump of concrete at the bottom of a river.

The sort of people who would beat an old lady to death are not to be trifled with. Shot, definitely, but not trifled with.

You think? I’d say the opposite. People who do this sort of sick things to old peps or kids are generally the weakest of the weak. Certainly too cowardly to go after somebody who would be under some sort of police protection IMO

The girlfriend could very well now be the wife. Or de-facto. Or ex with two kids, another on the way, receiving child support payments.

Who would have thought a forensic link possibly used in this way would make a pimply thug or four rich beyond the dreams of avarice?

Good on ’em for not letting go of this one. These creeps need to be off the streets.
