Suspect identified in cold case disappearance

19 Aug, 2012 11:18 AM  http://www.roxbydownssun.com.au

Major Crime Detectives have identified a suspect in the 1990 disappearance of Karen Michelle Williams from Coober Pedy.

Police said new information had been received, leading to the identification of a man who they suspect was involved in the disappearance of the 16-year-old girl on 4 August 1990.

He has been spoken to by detectives and a sample of his DNA has been taken.

Major Crime Detective Brevet Sergeant Paul Ward, who is leading the review of the cold case, said inquiries have also taken place in Victoria and Western Australia.

He said detectives can't reveal what the new information is as it may compromise the investigation.

"We believe that these new enquiries may identify more people who know something. I hope that after 22 years someone will have the moral courage to now come forward," he said.

"We now have a renewed focus and direction to this investigation."

This month marks the 22nd anniversary of her disappearance.

There is a $200,000 reward offered to anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest.

Karen's story

Karen Michelle Williams was 16 when she disappeared from near Dawes Street and Medway Drive, Coober Pedy on Saturday, 4 August 1990 between 5am and 6am.

In October 1990, her disappearance was declared a Major Crime.

Major Crime detectives established that Karen had been at the Opal Inn, Coober Pedy on the evening of Friday, 3 August 1990 and into the early hours of Saturday, 4 August.

At about 3am, Karen left the Opal Inn with a number of friends and went to Sergio's Restaurant on Hutchinson Street.

Sometime around 5am, Karen left the restaurant with three friends and they were all driven to the corner of Medway Drive and Lehman Place by a young local man.

Karen's friends got out of the vehicle there and went to a nearby property, while the local man drove Karen a short distance further to Dawes Street, where she was allegedly dropped off. Karen has not been seen since.

During that time, more than 115 statements were taken, with police enquiries also conducted in the Northern Territory and New South Wales.

Police are particularly interested if anyone saw a red or orange Datsun 180B in the vicinity of Tomcat Road and Oodnadatta Road in the early hours of August 4.

Information can still be given to police by calling Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at www.sa.crimestoppers.com.au.
