THE blue, platform boots seized by police hold no clues to the 2002 murder of Kathryn Grosvenor.
Police said an initial examination of several pairs of blue platform boots recently seized by police investigating the murder have indicated the footwear is unlikely to be linked to the case.
The appeal for the distinctive boots was made public last week and resulted in two pairs handed into Wagga Wagga police. A third pair was also handed into police.
Police said all will be submitted to ongoing forensic testing.
Detective superintendent Brett McCann extends his thanks to the Canberra and Wagga Wagga communities for their assistance in bringing the boots to police for forensic study, and vowed that the investigation into Ms Grosvenor’s murder would continue on.
“This case may be more than nine years old but the determination of police to hunt down the person or persons responsible for this crime is undiminished,” Detective Superintendent McCann said.
“As always, we would welcome any evidence or new information which could assist the investigation and remind people that a reward of $250,000 will be paid for information leading to an apprehension.”
