Victoria Cafasso Wiki – Victoria Cafasso Biography
Police believe they may find new information about the murder of a young Italian tourist killed on an Australian beach 28 years ago. Police have launched a new search for information about the murder of an Italian tourist nearly three decades ago. Victoria Cafasso body was found with multiple stab wounds on the beach at Freshwater Creek in Beumaris, Tasmania on October 11, 1995.
The case remains unsolved despite a $500,000 reward and descriptions of a man and a light-colored Subaru pickup truck in the area at the time of the murder. Search and rescue teams, as well as police divers, conducted a land and water search in nearby St Helens on Thursday as they continue to investigate her death. “This is an area that has not been previously searched, but is an area of interest following a recent review of the case,” a Tasmanian Police spokesperson said.

“Police say it is also due to information received from witnesses about the movements of a light-colored Subaru pickup from the 1970s.” Police divers searched the area along with officers with metal detectors. Police last week released reconstructed images of the vehicle, which was seen at various locations around Beumaris, including in Freshwater Creek, at the time of the murder.
They also posted a description of a man in his 20s with blond hair, about 182 cm tall, a slim but very fit build, sun-tanned legs and arms, and the appearance of a surfer who could help with inquiries.
Acting Inspector Andrew Hanson said that while it had been nearly 28 years since Ms Cafasso was murdered, a routine review of her death had led police to a new line of inquiry. “We never close these cases, and the latest searches show our investigators’ commitment to finding answers for Victoria’s family,” he said. The $500,000 reward remains available for information related to a conviction in the case. Read More…….
