$100k offer for murder clues
A REWARD of $100,000 has been posted by the NSW Government for information about the murder of Graeme Weekes almost 11 years ago.
Mr Weekes was found dead in the lounge room of his unit in Toormina on June 13, 1999.
A post mortem revealed he died of massive head and chest injuries consistent with being struck with a blunt object.
A coronial inquest into the murder will be held on May 24.
The police investigation into the homicide questioned several people of interest, however, none was able to shed any light on or provide any reason for Mr Weekes’s death.
Detective Senior Sergeant Peter O’Reilly from the Coffs Clarence Local Area Command hopes this reward will shed new light on the case.
Acting Police Minister Tony Kelly said Mr Weekes’s family deserved to know what happened to him and who was responsible so they can get some closure on the tragic death.
“We hope that this reward will encourage someone to remember something that might assist the police with their investigation,” Mr Kelly said.
“I’d encourage anyone with information, no matter how insignificant 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 or Coffs Harbour detectives on 6652 0299. Any information will be treated as confidential.
