Helen’s friends and family also refused to believe that Helen would’ve asked to be dropped off alongside a highway when it was getting dark outside.
However, after investigating Adam further, local coroner Robert Pearce concluded that there was insufficient evidence to prove he was involved in her cause of death. Because of a lack of evidence and information on Helen’s vanishing, Robert also determined that Helen must have died the night she went missing, most likely near Burnie.
Tasmania Police still suspect Helen was murdered and that someone in Tasmania and the city of Burnie must know something about where Helen is or what happened to her.
At a recent press conference, they announced that a $500,000 reward is being offered to anyone who can give them information that would lead to a conviction in Helen’s case.
“I strongly hope that with the passing of time, personal circumstances may have changed that will enable someone to provide the information we required to bring closure for Helen’s family and loved ones,” said local Commander Stuart Wilkinson.
At the time of Helen’s disappearance, she was five foot two, had a slim build, long brown hair, and a fair complexion. She was last seen wearing a long-sleeved, light blue cotton top, dark black slacks, and black slip-on shoes.
