Who Killed Kathryn Grosvenor
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. Kathryn’s mother spoke to her on the phone that day at around 7.50pm.
There are two unconfirmed sightings of Kathryn in the Gold Creek area the night she went missing, including a sighting at the George Harcourt Inn in Nicholls, where she was thought to have purchased cigarettes between 9.05 and 9.15pm.
She was 178cm tall with a slim build and long brown/red hair. She was last seen wearing dark coloured hipster pants, electric blue platform boots, and a red ‘Paris’ top.
Around 9am on Saturday 9 March 2002 a canoeist found her body in Yarralumla Bay, 200m east of Attunga Point. She had been weighed down by a concrete bollard which had originated from Anthony Rolfe Drive in Gungahlin.
In 2002 a witness came forward with information that a man was seen stopped on the side of Anthony Rolfe Avenue near the roundabout at the time, and saw this person place an item in the boot of a vehicle.
The car is described as red and similar to an early 1980s model Toyota Corolla sedan.
Police are urging anyone with any information, no matter how small, to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be provided anonymously.
A $500 000 reward is in place for information leading to the apprehension and subsequent conviction of the person(s) responsible for Kathryn’s murder and an appropriate indemnity from prosecution will be considered for any accomplice who first gives information.
