The state government has offered a reward of $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Marrawah man Simon Crisp.

Mr Crisp was murdered at the rear of the Marrawah Tavern in the early hours of Saturday, July 13 last year. 

His death has been the subject of an intensive police investigation.

"The investigation into the murder of Simon Crisp remains open and ongoing, however information has all but ceased concerning this matter,” Detective Inspector Robert Gunton said. 

“We are hopeful that the provision of this reward will prompt anybody with credible information to come forward.

“The investigation team is certainly of the view that others are aware of the person who is responsible for the murder of Simon Crisp. 

“It may be that their personal circumstances to date have not permitted them to contact police. We are hopeful that the reward will motivate them to provide the information,”  Detective Inspector Gunton said. 

Payment of the reward, or any portion thereof, shall be at the sole discretion of the Police Commissioner Darren Hine., Detective Inspector Gunton said.

Anyone with information which could assist Tasmania Police with their enquiries should contact Burnie CIB on 03 64 345291 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
