Crime Stoppers NSW

🧩🧩 UNSOLVED CASE 🧩🧩

Clint Milazzo was assaulted outside the Ettamogah Hotel on Kellicar Road in Campbelltown on February 23, 2003.

Mr Milazzo, 24, was drinking with a friend and left the hotel at closing time. He and his friend were assaulted while standing in the undercover car park waiting for a taxi near the hotel.

According to investigators, Mr Milazzo was punched in the head, causing him to fall to the ground.

He suffered serious head injuries and was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at Liverpool Hospital where he underwent several operations.

His health continued to deteriorate and he died on March 3, 2003 from severe head injuries he suffered during the attack.

Mr Milazzo was an applicant to enter the NSW Police College in Goulburn shortly before his death. His widow is a NSW Police officer.

A coronial inquest in 2005 returned an open finding and recommended a $100,000 reward be offered to help police find the person or persons responsible for the attack on Mr Milazzo.

Mr Milazzo’s case is still under the responsibility of Campbelltown detectives, who have conducted extensive inquiries but have exhausted all leads.

If the case goes to the Unsolved Homicide Unit then it could be reopened in the future under the new framework.

Detective Superintendent Cook said the reviews would “strengthen relationships with victim families through regular and informed communication”.

“It also allows the Unsolved Homicide Unit to initiate re-investigations while all other cases continue to be reviewed,” he said.

“We are committed to ensuring the most effective and efficient allocation of resources in order to maximise our capability to provide justice for victims and answers to their families.”

Seventeen cases are already being investigated under the new framework. No further detail on the cases has been provided.

The Unsolved Homicide Unit was formed in 2004 to centralise the bulk of the state’s unsolved murders and unexplained disappearances.

The unit has seen 30 cases solved and five more are before the court.

14 years on, police are still searching for Clint Milazzo’s murderer

 

FOURTEEN years after the killing of police recruit Clint Milazzo outside a Campbelltown pub, police have again appealed for help to find his murderer.

The 24-year-old had left Ettamogah Hotel, then at Macarthur Square, on February 23, 2003, when he was attacked while waiting for a taxi.

Mr Milazzo suffered serious head injuries and was taken to Liverpool Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit where he eventually died on March 3.

The Ambarvale man was an applicant to enter the NSW Police College in Goulburn shortly before his death.

Police are hoping a $100,000 reward will encourage witnesses of the incident to come forward.


 

 

Reward posted for police killer

 

POLICEWOMAN Tanya Milazzo is hoping a $100,000 reward will unlock critical information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of her husband‘s killer.

Clint Milazzo was celebrating his acceptance as a recruit to the NSW Police Academy when he was punched to the ground outside the Ettamogah Hotel in Campbelltown, on February 23, 2003. He suffered severe head injuries and died on March 3.

The 24-year-old father had been looking forward to his wife completing her police training and joining him in their chosen career.

“I know that there are people out there who know who was responsible for my husband’s death,” Picton-based Constable Milazzo said.

“They have the information we need to bring the killer to justice. It’s very frustrating because we know who did it, they know who did it, but they won’t come forward.

“Hopefully, the prospect of picking up $100,000 will end the stalemate in the investigation.”

Detective Sergeant Bob Morley said the police inquiry was focusing on a suspect whose role emerged during a 10-day coronial inquest last year.

“We hope the reward will loosen someone’s lips, especially among the associates and acquaintances of the person we are looking at,” Sergeant Morley said.

Posting the $100,000 reward, Police Minister Carl Scully said: “Campbelltown detectives have conducted extensive enquiries but have exhausted all leads.

“It’s hoped this reward may persuade somebody with knowledge of Clint’s murder to come forward and provide police with information that could lead to an arrest and conviction.

“His wife and two young children deserve to know who was responsible for Clint’s death, and see justice done.”

During their initial inquiries, police said the unprovoked attack was carried out by a male Caucasian 20 to 25 years old, about 178 centimetres tall, with short-cropped hair.

Anybody with any information about the Milazzo murder should contact Campbelltown Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Pam, as she was known, stepped into the Academy in May 1985 and was eventually stationed as those locations nominated above.
About 1992 she was working at Liverpool Detectives where she met Clayton HEINZ # 15595 whom she eventually married.
Whilst Pam was stationed at Campbelltown, ( about 1993 ) she was involved in an ‘on duty’ MVA which resulted in injuries.
Those injuries resulted in Pam using Morphine to quell the pain and it was Morphine that she became addicted to.
Unfortunately Pam didn’t stop at the use of Morphine and ventured onto stronger and illegal drugs which saw her spiral from the lovely woman she once was to the depths that illegal drugs take a person.
Pam exited NSWPF on a full Pension due to her HOD injuries and moved, with Clay, to Mt Tamberine, Qld.
Despite the love and assistance offered by those around her, Pam could not see the wrong that she was doing due to the fog of drugs.
On Wednesday  3 September 2003, Pam was at home at Mt. Tamberine, Qld, when she had a fall.  Due to the manner in which she fell, she asphyxiated.
An Inquest was held and toxicology found that the only drugs which Pam had within her system – were the ones that were currently prescribed to her.
May Pam forever Rest In Peace.

Mysterious death sparks questions

By John Kidman and Sean Berry
August 3 2003
The Sun-Herald


A brief is being prepared for the coroner on the baffling overdose death of a young Sydney police officer, with detectives unable to discount the possibility he met with foul play.

The tragedy has also sparked a crisis of confidence within the force’s elite Special Crimes and Internal Affairs branch (SCIA), following claims that repeat warnings about the constable running off the rails were ignored.

City Central general duties officer Matthew Williams was found dead at his Fairlight home unit on the city’s northern beaches 17 days ago, The Sun-Herald has learned.

Sources close to the investigation say he was discovered by his flatmate – also a police officer – with two isolated needle marks in his arm and a used syringe beside his bed.

Suicide and misadventure have not been ruled out, but detectives are also said to be considering the extraordinary prospect that the 26-year-old policeman was deliberately injected with a lethal dose of heroin – known within the criminal fraternity as a “hot shot”.

Internal affairs and crime scene investigators are understood to have spent almost five hours combing the apartment without finding any further trace of the drugs that killed him or other incriminating evidence.

Williams was thought to have spent the night before he died drinking with workmates into the early hours of the morning.

“There was talk about him heading up to the [Kings] Cross afterwards,” one said on condition of anonymity. “But that’s the last anyone knows about what happened.”

On Friday, senior detectives from Manly, the nearest command to where Williams’s body was found, spent the morning speaking to his parents, Robert and Mary Williams, at their home in Sydney’s inner-west.

The couple is still too distraught to speak about the case.

A spokeswoman for NSW Police Commissioner Ken Moroney said on Friday he was unable to comment on the incident while it was before the coroner.

However, a Sun-Herald investigation has found that Williams had been the subject of a series of police intelligence reports alleging his involvement with party drugs and the inner-city club scene.

Last year, Mr Moroney announced plans to thwart corruption by profiling at-risk officers and intervening to save their careers before they did the wrong thing.

An ongoing audit of internal corruption complaints by SCIA has revealed that hundreds of complaints are not being acted upon.

In Williams’s case, at least one of his colleagues is alleged to have referred to his association with staff at the Cross’s notorious Stripperama, the same club where four off-duty police officers were savagely bashed in June.

Williams’s City Central colleagues spoke warmly of him yesterday.

“He was popular, really popular,” one told The Sun-Herald.

Darrell Southam from Wollongong past away 14 years ago today.
He was Respected by a lot in the Force of Wollongong and known by many other Stations around NSW.
He was one heck of a good man and Friend to many and to those who knew him well, would know he was an an old school Copper dealing with the changes that laid ahead in the Force.
At home he was a loud bugger that had to deal with 7 girls and 1 boy but dam he was a good Dad.
He was a man you could talk about anything with and he’d always have a huge bear hug for you when you needed one. A good friend to me and all my mates…
And then have a beer with you and later be laughing hard till you had tears rolling down your face.
I love you miss you DAD and think of you everyday xxx

Prior to Retirement, Darrell worked out of the Wollongong Police Station Prosecutors Office.

In those days, of the ” old ” Police station ( which was at the same location as the current station ) there were two buildings.  The Prosecutors building was on ground level next to the, then, main entry to the Court house – whereas the main Police station was below ground level as Church St sloped away.

The Prosecutors officer was on top of the Breath Analysis Room.  There was a wooden walkway from the Prosecutors door to the footpath and you would often find Darrell out there rolling a cigarette.

A bloody nice bloke.

 

May you forever Rest In Peace mate.

From 15 October 2003 Detective Inspector Day and other members of the South East Asian Crime Squad were involved in archiving official documentation which was stored in a garage near their covert workplace.  The inspector subsequently took ill and was admitted to Concord Hospital, where he unfortunately passed away on the 14th November 2003.

The detective inspector was born in 1958 and was sworn in as a probationary constable on the 26 June 1981. At the time of his death he was the coordinator of the South East Asian Crime Squad at the State Crime Command.

CONCORD Hospital and a leading specialist have been secretly disciplined by the Health Care Complaints Commission after a patient was found dead on the floor in the middle of the night.

Widow Jacqui Day complained about the treatment of her husband Andy, a top undercover police officer, after an anonymous letter from nurses at the hospital said: “Mr Day should not have died.”

Detective Inspector Day, 45, was being treated for pneumonia and died when his oxygen tube fell out of its wall tap for the second time in six hours.

After an inquiry behind closed doors, the HCCC found that Concord, a major teaching hospital, had provided below standard care to Mr Day “in a number of respects”, The Daily Telegraph can reveal.

The commission also found that Professor Matthew Peters, the head of respiratory medicine at the hospital, had “departed from the acceptable standard of care” in two areas.

He was referred to the Medical Board’s conduct committee for “counselling” for not transferring Mr Day to the intensive care unit and for failing to appropriately monitor his oxygen needs.

Mrs Day will today appear before the Government’s special commission of inquiry into the state’s ailing health system, sitting at Concord, to demand answers and ask why the complaints procedure is shrouded in such secrecy.

There was evidence before the HCCC from four medical experts that Mr Day should have been moved to intensive care.

Professor Peters told the inquiry there were no intensive care beds available and Mr Day did not want to be moved.

The commission’s report, obtained by The Daily Telegraph, said there had been at least one bed available on five of the eight days Mr Day was in hospital and there was no record in the medical notes of Mr Day’s comments.

“In 2008, you can’t leave your loved one in a public hospital on their own,” Mrs Day said yesterday, adding that all adverse HCCC findings should be made public.

“I still do not know how a 45-year-old man can be admitted to hospital and die on the floor in the middle of the night.”

It will be Mrs Day’s first visit to the hospital since her husband died at 3.30am on November 14, 2003, after eight days treatment. The HCCC took 18 months on its inquiry.

The anonymous letter from nurses was sent to the coroner who conducted a 2006 inquest into Mr Day’s death.

The cause of death was recorded as a lack of oxygen “due to displacement of oxygen supply”, however coroner John Abernethy found Mr Day’s condition was so serious he would have died even with different care.

HCCC executive officer Kim Swan said legislation limited what the commission could release to the public.

The Medical Board did not return calls. Professor Peters is overseas.
