GPS tracking device placed on Shane Bowden’s car to track his movements in lead up to his murder

Gold Coast and Homicide Detectives investigating the murder of Shane Bowden have today released CCTV of two vehicles of interest and two suspects linked to the placing of a GPS tracking device on Bowden’s car three weeks before his murder.

Police investigations have identified that prior to his death, multiple suspects spent days conducting physical and technical surveillance of Bowden’s address and his car. The suspects drove past Bowden’s address multiple times and parked in the same vacant allotment used by the offenders to park and wait for Bowden on the night of his murder.

CCTV footage released today from the unit complex where Bowden was staying shows two vehicles of interest used by the suspects as part of their surveillance of Bowden.

CCTV also shows two people walking towards Bowden’s black BMW before one suspect then lies on the ground at the rear of Bowden’s car and is believed to place a tracking device on the car while the other stands guard.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who may recognise these vehicles or know the identity of the two suspects to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Police Link on 131 444.

Last week, the Queensland Government issued a reward of $250 000 for information that leads to the conviction of the person, or persons, found to be responsible for Shane Bowden’s murder and an indemnity from prosecution will be recommended for any accomplice, not being the person who actually committed the crime, who first gives such information.
