Update, homicide arrest, 2007 cold case

Detectives investigating the murder of Jay Brogden in Airlie Beach in 2007 have this morning executed a crime scene warrant at an Airlie Beach address.

Police from the Homicide Group in conjunction with Whitsunday CIB have established a crime scene at the Mazlin Street address earlier this morning.

Scientific officers will conduct a search of an area isolated to the backyard of the premises for items they believe to be linked to the murder.

“We can confirm information received from the public during our recent appeal has led us to this point. We are pleased with yesterday’s arrest and will continue to investigate this homicide until we are satisfied we have located every person involved in this murder.

“I can say without a shadow of a doubt that we haven’t reached that point yet,” Detective Inspector Damien Hansen of the Homicide Group said.

Note: The current residents of the property are not involved in the ongoing investigation.
