About 9.30pm on Saturday 6 November 1999 two men forced their way into the McKellar home (in the ACT) of elderly couple, Gregor and Irma Palasics. The couple were bound and savagely beaten before the men ransacked their home and stole cash and jewellery.
Irma did not survive her injuries.
The offenders are believed to be linked to previous burglaries in 1997 and 1998 when the Palasics lived in Red Hill.
Anyone with information about Irma’s murder or the prior burglaries is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be provided anonymously.
A $500 000 reward, at the discretion of the ACT Minister for Police and Emergency Services, is in place for information leading to the apprehension and subsequent conviction of the person(s) responsible for Irma’s murder.
Kathryn Grosvenor was 23 years of age at the time of her murder and was last seen at her Nicholls home on Sunday 3 March 2002.
Susan Winburn was 45 years old when she was found murdered in her home at 81 Knoke Avenue in Gordon on 13 January 2004.
