Cops Dangle $250k Reward In QLD Murder Case
Queensland Police are hoping the lure of a $250,000 reward will land them crucial information about the murder of Brisbane man Wayne Youngkin 30 years ago.
Mr Youngkin was last seen alive in 1986 and his body was found in a septic tank last year at the Brisbane home where he lived with his uncle and grandmother.
Investigators have interviewed numerous persons of interest and still have no suspect, but believe more than one person could have been involved.
The reward was announced on Monday, with police offering indemnity from prosecution to the murderer's associates if they weren't involved in the crime.
Detective Inspector Tim Trezise said forensic evidence in cold cases were often scarce, and that it was information given to them by members of the public that often held the key to solving the crime.
