Police Seek Fresh Info Over Josh Warneke’s Cold Case

By Kelly Marie Smith

Fresh information has come to light concerning the murder of Josh Warneke almost seven years after the tragic event.

Police from the cold case homicide squad are chasing a lead concerning a white Toyota ’79 series Land Cruiser tray top ute, that was seen not far from where Mr Warneke’s body was discovered in February 2010.

Police say the vehicle had a “Bundy” novelty number plate and car flag poles on either side behind the cab.

It is believed to have driven along Short street into old brome road in the early hours of the morning on February 26th.

Police are appealing to the public for assistance in identifying the vehicle, its driver or any other occupants.

Newly appointed Police Commissioner Chris Dawson says that even the smallest of information will help.

” Someone does know something thats why we want you to come forward”

The state government is offering a 250000 reward for information on the murder.

Police say they will also recommend protection from prosecution for anyone who does come forward, that is not directly involved in Mr Warneke’s death.
