Still searching for Kathryn Grosvenor’s killer

By johnboy - 9 March 2012 29

Police and family have renewed their appeal for anyone who holds information about the murder of Kathryn Grosvenor ten years after her body was found in Lake Burley Griffin.

Today (March 9, 2012) marks 10 years since the body of Kathryn Grosvenor was found in Yarralumla Bay, 200m east of Attunga Point in Lake Burley Griffin. Her body was discovered by a canoeist at 9am on Saturday, March 9 2002.

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

That Sunday night Kathryn’s mother spoke to her on the phone around 7.50pm. That was the last time police can positively identify that Kathryn was alive.

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.

Her body had been weighed down by a concrete bollard which police discovered had originated from Anthony Rolfe Drive in Gungahlin.

Despite a lengthy police investigation, no one has been charged with Kathryn’s murder.

Detective Senior Constable Sarah Casey from ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations homicide team and case officer for the murder said that the investigation into Kathryn’s death is ongoing.

“Police have continued to obtain relevant information and interviewed possible witnesses and persons of interest, but unfortunately this has not led to an arrest,” Detective Senior Constable Casey said.

“We know there is someone out there who knows something about what happened and we urge that person or anyone else who may have information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

“Any piece of information could provide the link we need to solve this crime, and bring closure to the family,” Detective Senior Constable Casey said.

Kathryn was last seen wearing dark-coloured hipster pants and electric blue platform shoes and was thought to be carrying a green vinyl backpack. She was 178cm tall with a slim build and long brown/red hair.

A $250,000 reward is still in place for information leading to the apprehension and subsequent conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Kathryn Grosvenor and an appropriate indemnity from prosecution will be considered for any accomplice who first gives information.

Information to Crime Stoppers can be provided anonymously.

Appaerently, according to some people (posting on the recent ‘panel van’ thread), you don’t need to bother dredging up what really happened…..
This is a good example of why their argument is not correct.

This is in no way what i was saying on the other thread. Please don’t take me out of context on a thread I haven’t even posted on.

What were you saying then? What’s the difference between this case and the hit and run?

Becasue the the first was more than likely an accident – but i think that maybe the driver of said vehicle was probably drunk, and didn’t want to get busted – which now makes it no longer an accident, but a crime. So really there is no differance in this and the panel van case- I do wonder though if (to those who commented about the family of the panel van victim) this family is considered selfish for wanting to know what happened – i mean it’s not gonna bring anyone back from the dead is it ??

Man you are a foolish one indeed. How do you know this ? If you have the answers then should you be speaking to the police maybe? I can only assume, albeit reasonably safely, that you actually are just throwing rumor and innuendo around for a chin wag? If not then you are asking for a shit storm with the lawmen.

Give me one good reason to run from driving over a person, and killing them , if you were not doing the wrong thing like drinking while driving? and if you read i said ” I believe ” i don’t give 2 shits what you believe, but i believe the driver of said vehicle was drunk off his or her ass – wether you think so or not is irrelevent to me.

It is irrelevant to everyone I would think. I could give you a hundred reasons not that it is of any consequence or relevance to this case. I don’t care about what I think of your assumptions and fool hardy conclusions either. I believe you are a complete moron, i could be wrong, but if you believe in something without any evidence to support your belief, then I believe I am most likely on to something.

Sorry, Kathryn, not Karen.

Time to get back to the original reason for the posting. Karen was murdered, her murderer goes about its normal life, there is a reward and family and friends need closure. I cannot begin to imagine the agony her family and friends are going through. Please be a little considerate.

She was murdered ten years after her body was found in Lake Burley Griffin?

They should make one of those “Why punctuation matters” posters out of this.

I hope someone will finally get tempted by that reward to speak up.

Most people have no idea what it is like to live with this every day. Time is not healing. I just wish I knew what happened and why.

Lookout Smithers 9:39 pm 09 Mar 12

After ten years CT still haven’t learned the difference between suspect and person of interest. For shame.
