Detectives have released a number of images as part of an on-going investigation into the cold case murder of Wayne Youngkin.
An enhanced image of a car seat cover found in a septic tank along with Mr Youngkin’s remains has been released, along with a new image of Wayne and a friend.
Detective Inspector Tim Trezise said it was hoped that these new images, plus the reward of $250,000 announced today by the Police Minister today would generate new leads as the investigation continues into Mr Youngkin’s murder.
“Over the past seven months, we have made several significant discoveries relating to Mr Youngkin, including the car seat covers and a watch believed to have belonged to him,” Detective Inspector Tim Trezise.
“We hope that these enhanced images of the car seat covers might jog someone’s memory. We are trying to find out their origin and speak with anyone who may have had those car seat covers at the time. (the 1980s)
“We are also continuing to investigate known associates of Mr Youngkin and are urging anyone who may have known him or has knowledge of his movements throughout the early to mid-1980s to come forward.
“Even if the information may seem minor to you, it could play a significant part in progressing the investigation and building a complete picture about his murder.”
