ACT Policing is urging the woman who bought a pair of electric blue boots from a St Vincent de Paul store in Wagga Wagga to contact police immediately.
On Monday July 11, two women went to the Peter Street St Vincent de Paul store and purchased the platform boots. The shoes are thought to be connected with the murder of Canberra woman Kathryn Grosvenor.
Kathryn Grosvenor, then 23, was last seen at her Nicholls home on Sunday, March 3, 2002. A woman matching her description was seen purchasing a packet of cigarettes at The George Harcourt Inn, Nicholls, just after 9 pm that night.
Kathryn’s body was discovered in Lake Burley Griffin on Saturday, March 9, 2002. She was 178cm tall, with a slim build and long brown/red hair. She was last seen wearing dark coloured hipster pants and electric blue platform shoes.
Police are urging the women to immediately contact their local police station or through Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be provided anonymously.
A Reward of up to $250,000 will be paid at the discretion of the ACT Minister for Police for information leading to the apprehension and subsequent conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Kathryn Anne Grosvenor.
In addition, an appropriate indemnity from prosecution will be considered for any accomplice, not being the person who actually committed the crime, who first gives the information. The grant of any such indemnity is at the discretion of the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions.
