No Shoes, Cigars & Glasses: All the bizarre details in the mysterious disappearance of the missing mother, as police offer a half-MILLION dollar reward for information.
- Christine Maria Fenner, 48 years old, disappeared in February 1999
- She lived in a caravan on a property in Booyal, QLD
- The government has offered $500k to help find Ms. Fenner
The Queensland government has offered a hefty reward for information relating to the mysterious disappearance of a woman who went missing from her home more than two decades ago.
Christine Maria Fenner, 48, was living in a caravan on a rural property in Booyal – between Childers and Gin Gin in central Queensland – when she disappeared from her home in February 1999.
Strangely, Ms. Fenner left behind her usual items that she always carried with her, including her shoes, glasses, and cigarettes.
She has not been heard from since then and her body has never been found.
Ms. Fenner’s disappearance has baffled detectives for decades, but now a $500,000 reward is being offered for new information about her suspicious disappearance.
Police have offered a $500,000 reward for information on the disappearance of 48-year-old Christine Maria Fenner (pictured) in February 1999.
The reward was prompted by a review of the case by investigators from the Homicide Open Case Investigation Team last year.
Police had coordinated an extensive foot search of the area surrounding Ms. Fenner’s home when she was reported missing.
They also searched dams, homes, and sewage systems throughout the Wide Bay region.
Detective Sergeant Major Tara Kentwell of the homicide cold case investigation team said Ms. Fenner’s bank account has not been accessed since she went missing.
“There are people out there with information,” he said.
“Christine’s family and friends deserve answers so if you know anything please do.”
In 2008, a coroner ruled that Ms. Fenner was deceased, suggesting that she may have wandered, collapsed and died and her body was never recovered, or that she may have been murdered.
There was no evidence implicating anyone in her disappearance.
Ms Fenner lived in a caravan on a rural property in Booyal, between Childers and Gin Gin in central Queensland.
A coroner ruled that Ms Fenner was deceased in 2008, suggesting that she may have wandered, collapsed and died and her body was never recovered, or that she may have been murdered.
Police Minister Mark Ryan said a $500,000 reward would be offered for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for Fenner’s death.
The reward is in addition to the ‘appropriate’ indemnity from any process to be recommended for any accomplice.
“I particularly stress the importance of the issue of compensation offered in conjunction with this award,” Ryan said Thursday.
‘Anyone who was involved in the crime but did not commit it who comes forward and talks to the police is eligible for this prosecution award.
“Nobody should need a reason to come forward and help the police in this matter.”
