Police attempt to crack cold cases
THE NSW Government yesterday announced two separate rewards in relation to the two historic suspected murder cases.
Minister for Police Michael Daley said the Government would offer two $100,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the suspicious disappearances and presumed murders of Tanya Farrington and Linda Suzanne Davie.
Tanya, then aged 14, went missing from her home in Crows Nest on March 22, 1979.
She was last seen by her brother the night before watching TV.
Linda, aged 22 when she went missing, has not been seen since April 6, 1980, after she visited her boyfriend at the Royal North Shore Hospital.
On April 10, Linda’s boyfriend received a letter saying that she would be away until the following week – she was never seen again.
NSW Detective Sergeant Robert George yesterday responded to media reports that police were investigating links between the girls and notorious criminals, saying that such reports were speculation.
