15 years on, police renew call for information into disappearance of Helen Munnings
With the fifteen-year anniversary of the disappearance of Helen Munnings this weekend, police are renewing their call for public information to determine what happened to Helen.
“This year marks the 15-year anniversary of the disappearance of Helen Munnings who was last seen on 23 July 2008 on Marine Terrace in Burnie when she was 20-years-old,” said Commander Stuart Wilkinson.
In 2012 the Coroner determined Helen Munnings died in Burnie on/about 23 July 2008. Police strongly suspect that Helen was murdered and a reward for $500,000 remains on offer for information which leads to the conviction of a person or people involved in Helen’s death.
“The police investigation into the disappearance of Helen Munnings remains open and ongoing and police continue to believe there are people in the community with information in relation to the circumstances around Helen’s death and the location of her remains,” said Commander Wilkinson.
“15 years have passed since Helen disappeared, and with a $500,000 reward on offer, I strongly hope that with the passing of time, personal circumstances may have changed that will enable someone to provide the information we required to bring closure for Helen’s family and loved ones.
“I implore anyone with information, no matter how small, to come forward – it may be the piece we need to arrest and prosecute the person or people responsible for Helen’s suspected murder.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Burnie CIB on 131 444 of Crime Stoppers Tasmania. Payment of the reward, or any portion thereof, shall be at the sole discretion of the Commissioner of Police.
Crime Stoppers Tasmania CEO David Higgins reminds the community that “Crime Stoppers Tasmania offers the opportunity for a member of the community to provide information anonymously for investigation.”
“I encourage anyone with information about the disappearance of Helen Munnings to report through Crime Stoppers Tasmania – we don’t need your name or personal details, just the information you’re reporting, and you can still be eligible for the reward.
“Information can be provided to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or through our online portal at crimestopperstas.com.au”.
