Investigation into Kerry Giakoumis disappearance

Homicide Squad detectives are continuing to appeal for information in relation to the suspicious disappearance last year of Adelaide man Kerry Giakoumis.

The 29-year-old travelled from Adelaide to Melbourne on 5 June, 2020 with two associates who police believe are members of the Hells Angels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

Kerry had told family that he intended to work here as a concreter.

Whilst in Melbourne, Kerry regularly spoke with his family in South Australia and his mother had booked a flight for Wednesday, 10 June 2020 for him to return home on.

Kerry didn’t board the flight and contact with his family ceased.

They subsequently reported him missing to police, and his disappearance continues to be treated as suspicious.

Police believe Kerry attended the Hells Angels clubhouse on Lipton Drive, Thomastown with Hells Angels and other associates in the early hours of 10 June.

This is the last time police have information of Kerry being seen.

Detectives are keen to speak to anyone who has information about what happened at the clubhouse or any other location in the early hours of 10 June.

It’s understood that Kerry was not a patched member of the club at the time of his disappearance.

His disappearance is considered to be out of character and detectives believe it is almost certain Kerry has met with foul play.

Police have also released several new photos of Kerry as part of this appeal.

Investigators are particularly keen to hear from anyone who can provide information about his movements during his time in Melbourne, particularly on and after 10 June, 2020.

In June last year, detectives from the Homicide Squad and Echo Taskforce executed warrants at a number of properties including the Hells Angels clubhouse in Thomastown.

Despite following up a number of avenues of enquiry over the past 12 months, detectives are yet to locate Kerry or charge anyone in relation to his disappearance.

Victoria Police Homicide Squad investigators are continuing to work closely with South Australia Police to investigate avenues of enquiry within Adelaide.

Investigators still believe it is likely some kind of dispute has taken place and that may be connected to other members or associates of the Hells Angels OMCG.

Anyone with information about Kerry’s disappearance is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
