For 13 long years the family of Paul Strangio have searched for answers after he was shot to death at his Glenmore Park home.
Now, the NSW Police Force has announced a $500,000 rewarded for information regarding his murder – as they desperately try to give the family closure.
Paul Strangio’s brother, Julian Strangio, said he hoped the reward would help hold those responsible to account.
“Paul was a loving father and much-loved member of our family, who didn’t deserve what happened to him,” he said.
“After 13 years, we’re hoping this incentive will encourage people to come forward with the information detectives need to ultimately find justice for Paul.”
The Strangio family had their lives turned upside down late on Saturday, February 6 2010 when emergency services were called to Paul’s Sheoak Place home in Glenmore Park.
They were responding to reports of shots fired in the area.
Despite the efforts of NSW Ambulance paramedics, 42-year-old Strangio died at the scene.
Local police established a crime scene and commenced inquiries before State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad took carriage of the investigation under Strike Force Goodier.
The $500,000 reward has been announced for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Strangio’s murder.
Homicide Squad Commander, Detective Acting Superintendent Virginia Gorman, hopes the reward will prompt anyone with information to come forward.
“Our detectives haven’t – and won’t – give up on finding those responsible for Mr Strangio’s untimely death,” Det A/Supt Gorman said.
“The public are reminded that there is no piece of information too small for investigators; your tip could be the missing piece of the puzzle in this investigation.”
Investigations under Strike Force Goodier are continuing.
