Police appeal for information in 34-year-old cold case murder investigation

Nearly 35 years after she died, provincial police continue to search for information relating to the murder of Donna Jean Awcock.

The 17-year-old was found dead along the banks of the Thames River, just west of the Fanshawe Dam, on Friday, Oct. 14, 1983.

Police issued another appeal to the public for information on Friday. In a statement, police said they were confident someone in the community has vital information that would lead police to the person or persons responsible.

Awcock had been babysitting for a neighbour at an apartment complex along Cheyenne Avenue, now known as Oakville Avenue, in the city’s northeast end in the hours before she was reported missing, police said. She failed to return home on Thursday, Oct. 13 and was reported missing later that day.

New information fuelling fresh search in bizarre cold case murder of Martin Meffert

New information in a bizarre cold case murder mystery is fuelling fresh police searches in South Australia’s mid-north.

Detectives from the Major Crime Investigation Branch today converged on the town of Terowie, 230 kilometres north of Adelaide, where the remains of Martin Meffert were found in the fireplace of a home in 2013.

Mr Meffert, 25, vanished after catching a bus to the town from Adelaide eight years earlier but nobody had reported him missing.

Police say the purpose of today’s search was to find some of Mr Meffert’s remains, which are still unaccounted for.

“It’s more likely than not that Martin’s remains were disposed of at one location, recovered, buried at another location, and then moved again and that during that process his remains have become scattered,” said Detective Superintendent Des Bray from the Major Crime Branch.

“What we’re looking for is very, very small pieces of Martin’s remains which may have been missed
