The blue platform boots of murder. A break in the Kathryn Grosvenor killing.

blue boots

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.

“1. An AFP member is not allowed to identfy themselves as such in a forum like this. (ask VG why he has been quiet of late)
(NOT THAT I AM SAYING THAT I AM)”

So why is Lookout Smithers still commenting here: obviously, he has no credibility.

Glad this was revived just to see your posts. I feel so much better about my mundane job and myself now. At least I dont need to make up stuff on the intawebs to try to get an ego boost.

You do realise by commenting again you are contradicting your own argument? Hows the credibilty?

Please refrain from the use of “interwebs”. It ceased being funny in 2007.

Thank you.

Do these ‘suspects’ still live in the Ngunnawal area?

Were they suspects or ‘persons of interest’? What is the difference exactly?

They were both – for want of a better description, take suspect as being identified as a closer fit to the crime than a ‘person of interest’, who may, after questioning, be cleared of the crime.

No, incorrect. No suspects have ever been identified? Person of interest mearly suggests that the Canberra Times felt confident no one would lauch a defo case against them. Cheeky buggers. You really shouldn’t part with such public labeling if you actually have no idea and albeit risk defaming someone too. Little decorum eh?

Wow. You can’t let this label of CSI fanboy go? This case is approaching a decade unsolved. Don’t use it as your source of inspiration to self actualize. Again. We don’t give a shize

How is this relevant to your international crime fighting team? Are you part of Team America or Thunderbirds?

Sounds to me like EandIprefix works for one of those ‘guns for hire’ organisations so loved by defence lawyers.

They types who are willing to say anything as ‘expert’ opinion, provided the price is right.

That reply is incoherent. You use “We” but you should speak only for yourself. It is obvious to all that your reply is just another dummy spit, so GROW UP!

News to me

I should not have to reveal private information here about the owner: his intitals are TH (I do not know his middle inital). To forensicbub what a dummy spit. That is worse than the xbikee dummy spit about johnboy’s quote from CT about “gain” versus “loss” of demerit points.

As for the newspaper interviews with my team leader: the RiotACT has discussed these already whether you realised it or not.

You shouldn’t have to reveal any information about this case personally. It doesn’t really seem relevant. The family wouldn’t take anything positive from the experience of it. So what if it is a case study! Maybe use this as the reason you stop grandstanding in a such a righteous manner to get rouse applause. We don’t care.

You seem to be confusing a shareholding with outright ownership.
