New clues in hunt for killer of Gary Allbion
AS THE widow of murdered Sydney security guard Gary Allibon prepared to mark the fourth anniversary of his death on Friday, fresh clues emerged in the hunt for his killer.
Mr Allibon, 59, was shot dead when his cash delivery van was attacked by armed robbers in Sydney's CBD on June 7, 2010.
Following one of the most highly sophisticated forensic investigations in recent times, police have been able to match evidence from the murder scene to several other high profile crimes and believe they are closing in on the culprit.
Detectives from Strike Force Lorimer have drawn a "clear link" between a car used in the shooting of Mr Allibon - a stolen high-performance Audi S8 sedan - and the non-fatal shooting of another man in Wentworthville the year before.
At least two other vehicles - a silver BMW 5-series stolen during a violent car-jacking at Maroubra and a white BMW X5 - are also believed to have been involved in the robbery.
Commander of the Robbery Serious Crime Squad, Detective Superintendent Luke Moore said detectives had done an "excellent job" in piecing together a sequence of events and police knew who killed Mr Allibon, they just needed witnesses to come forward.
In a statement released on Friday, Monica Allibon said she continued to harbour hope that a $100,000 reward offered for information leading to an arrest would convince someone to come forward.
"My husband was killed by someone who can only be described as a cold-blooded murderer," Ms Allibon said.
"The murder of someone you love changes your life forever.
"I feel as empty today as I did the day of his death.
"I'm hoping this reward will convince someone to come forward and provide detectives with the missing links they need to catch Gary's killer."
