Police urge witnesses to come forward in cold case murder in Maryborough, QLD

Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Homicide Cold Case Investigation Unit investigating the suspected murder of Gregory Armstrong are appealing for information needed to solve the case, Queensland Police say.

Greg Armstrong was 30-years-old when he was last seen alive in Maryborough on May 7, 1997 and later reported missing by his landlord.

Homicide Detectives in conjunction with Wide Bay Detectives have co-ordinated new searches of bushland in the Tuan Forrest after collecting information from witnesses during recent investigations.

Detectives are hopeful these searches, assisted by the local SARMAC co-ordinator and SES volunteers, will result in new evidence being located which will progress investigations to date.

Police wish to reiterate the investigation remains ongoing and will continue until all opportunities to advance this investigation have been exhausted.

Homicide and local detectives investigating the murder continue to encourage potential witnesses to come forward with the information needed to solve the case.

A Government reward of $250,000 has been issued for information which leads to the apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder.

The reward further offers an opportunity for indemnity against prosecution for any accomplice, not being the person who actually committed the murder, who first gives such information.

If you have information for police, contact Policelink on 131 444 or provide information using the online form 24hrs per day.

You can report information about crime anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
