Wanted man named in connection with shooting murder

A man wanted by police in connection with a shooting murder in 2012 has today been identified by investigators seeking information from the public to help locate him.

Kyle Lloyd Pryde, 31 (pictured) was previously known to live in Newton, but extensive inquiries by police have failed to locate him.

A warrant for his arrest to face a murder charge was issued by the Adelaide Magistrates Court on 26 August.

Pryde is wanted in connection with the murder of Jason De Ieso, 33, who was shot dead at his Pooraka paint and panel workshop on 21 November 2012.

Five other men have been charged in connection with the case.

The officer in charge of the SA Police Major Crime Investigation Branch, Detective Superintendent Des Bray, said given his alleged involvement in this offence, and his potential access to firearms, Pryde should be considered dangerous.

He should not be approached, but anyone with information about his current location should contact police in their state immediately.

“If Kyle Pryde becomes aware of this public release of information I would urge him to consider his actions,” he said.

“He should reconsider what he is doing, contact a solicitor and surrender to police.”

SA Police allege that Pryde has been a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club North Crew since about 2011.

“Since police made arrests on 3 August, further investigations into this case have been ongoing,” Detective Superintendent Bray said.

“Sufficient evidence has been obtained for us to seek a warrant, but extensive inquiries by police have failed to locate him.”

Kyle Lloyd Pryde is 178cm tall, 100kg, with a light complexion, brown eyes and short brown hair. He also has a range of distinctive tattoos on his arms and lower leg. A number of those are related directly to his involvement with the Hells Angels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

Anyone seeing Kyle Pryde should not approach him, but call Tripe Zero (000) immediately.

Anyone with information that may assist police in this matter can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 and may remain anonymous if they wish.
