Announced June 2007
A reward of up to $1 million has been offered for information leading to the arrest and subsequent conviction of anyone responsible for the death of 37-year-old mother of three Kath Bergamin.
Ms Bergamin disappeared during the evening of Sunday 18 August 2002 from her Brien Crescent home that she shared with a female friend.
Investigations by Homicide Squad detectives have established Ms Bergamin was wearing three quarter length red Adidas gym pants with white stripes, a white ‘Tommy Girl’ t-shirt with a red and blue logo, a red coloured hooded windcheater-type jacket and red Nike gym socks.
Ms Bergamin had separated from her husband, with whom she had previously resided in the Cheshunt area, just a few months before her disappearance.
Extensive enquiries were conducted in and around the Wangaratta and Cheshunt areas to identify those responsible for her disappearance.
A large search of bushland area in Cheshunt South was also conducted in an attempt to locate her body.
Kath Bergamin’s remains have never been recovered.
Detectives believe members of the community may have information in relation to this incident and are asking them to come forward.
"The investigation needs that vital piece of information that will enable us to prosecute those responsible and resolve this case" Homicide Squad Detective Inspector Steve Clark said.
"We hope this reward will encourage anyone to come forward - any piece of information could help. We particularly want to speak to anyone with information who has not yet contacted us."
The reward is payable at the Chief Commissioner’s discretion and any information received is treated as strictly confidential.
