Announced August 2004
Victoria Police is offering a $100,000 reward for information regarding the murder of Mark Blyth in 2001.
Mr Blyth was shot and his body found in Harkness Road, Melton about 7am on 27 August 2001.
After an intensive investigation, there is no suggestion that Blyth had any connection to criminal activity. However he was suffering from depression and those close to him described his behaviour around the time of his murder to be somewhat unusual.
Investigators believe that the murder was pre-planned and involved a number of persons.
In particular, police would like to appeal to any person who may have been approached to take part in the murder.
Information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible will result in a reward, paid at the discretion of the Chief Commissioner.
