Reward offered regarding murder of Heather Turner
In a major initiative, million-dollar rewards are being offered in relation to 13 South Australian cases involving the murder or disappearance (and presumed murder) of children.
Her distinctive Tweety Bird bag is still missing.
A suspect has been interviewed, but there has been insufficient evidence to proceed with the matter.
Police hope that the offer of these substantial rewards will encourage someone with intimate knowledge in each case to come forward with that vital information, and in turn bring some peace to the families involved.
Over recent weeks SA Police have highlighted each of the cases covered by the $13 million reward fund. To read the full list please click: https://sa.crimestoppers.com.au /news/million-dollar-rewards-offered-sa-child-murder-cases
If you have any information in these cases you are urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at https://sa.crimestoppers.com.au/
One of the cases featured involves the murder of 16-year-old Heather Turner.
The teenager left her parentís home on Gulf Court at Largs Bay on 16 January 1998 and did not return.
She was seen at Semaphore later that day and again the next day.
Two weeks later, on 31 January, Heatherís body was discovered by police partly submerged in a creek at Port Gawler.
She had been bashed and police believe she may have been kept somewhere else before the body was dumped.
A reward of up to $1 million is offered for information in this case leading to the apprehension/conviction of the person or people responsible for Heatherís murder.
