MEDIA ADVISORY: $1 million reward to be announced as inquiries continue into 1987 murder of Raymond Keam

The NSW Police Force will address the media today and announce a $1 million reward for information into the murder of Raymond Keam more than 34 years ago.

The body of Raymond Keam – then aged 43 – was located by a member of the public in grass at the northern end of Alison Park at Randwick, about 6.15am on Tuesday 13 January 1987.

A post mortem examination revealed he died from severe head injuries.

Despite extensive investigations by local police and Homicide Squad detectives at the time, no one has been charged in relation to Mr Keam’s death.

In 1988, a Coronial Inquest found Mr Keam died due to being struck by a person or persons unknown.

In 2019, a formal review of the case was conducted under the Homicide Squad’s Unsolved Homicide framework and a re-investigation commenced by detectives attached to Strike Force Augenaut.

A $1 million NSW Government reward will be announced as part of a renewed appeal to the community to come forward with any information that may assist detectives with their inquiries.
