The State Government has announced a $250,000 reward for information on the death of Raymond Kehlet and the disappearance of his wife Jennie in 2015.
The couple disappeared while prospecting near Sandstone in WA’s north in March 2015.
While 47-year-old Raymond Kehlet’s body was found at the bottom of an abandoned mine shaft 1.8km from their campsite, his wife Jennie was never found despite an extensive land and air search.
Homicide detectives are treating both the death and disappearance as suspicious.
WA Police Minister Michelle Roberts said this reward will be given to anyone who comes forward with information leading to the conviction of the person responsible.
“Most people are willing to provide information to police on serious crimes because it’s the right thing to do,” she said.
“However, if this reward motivates someone to give information to police then we are happy to offer it.
“The heavy toll that an unsolved case like this takes on family and friends should never be forgotten.
“I know detectives are pulling out all stops to solve this case and give Mr and Mrs Kehlet’s family answers, and I urge anyone who can help to come forward.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or to the officer in charge of the Homicide Squad or to any police station.
