Reward offered for murder clue
A $100,000 reward is being offered for information that may help solve the murder of a NSW man more than 10 years ago.
Graeme Weekes was found dead in the lounge room of his Toormina unit in June 1999.
He died of massive head and chest injuries, consistent with being struck with a blunt object.
Police questioned several people of interest but none were able to shed any light on the murder.
Acting NSW Police Minister Tony Kelly said Mr Weekes’s family deserved to know who was responsible so they could get closure on the death of their brother and son.
A coronial inquest will be held on May 24, and it is hoped new evidence will emerge as a result of the reward.
“We hope this reward will encourage someone to remember something that might assist police with their investigation,” Mr Kelly in a statement.
“I’d encourage anyone with information, no matter how insignificant they think it may seem, to come forward.
“It might just be the missing piece of the puzzle that leads to criminal charges.”
Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
