Theresa Binge

Theresa Binge
The New South Wales and Queensland Governments are offering a $100,000 joint reward for anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murder of Theresa Binge.
The 43-year-old Boggabilla woman was last seen alive about midnight on 17 June 2003, leaving the Victoria Hotel at Goondiwindi in Queensland with a man. She was wearing running shoes and a yellow football jersey.
Mrs Binge was reported missing by family members to Queensland Police on 21 June 2003.
On 29 June 2003, Theresa's body was found approximately 10 kilometres south of the Queensland border on Boomi Road. Forensic evidence indicates the crime was committed elsewhere before her body was dumped.
The Barwon Local Area Command (NSW Police Force) established Strike Force Flair to investigate the murder but after extensive inquiries, police have not been able to gather sufficient evidence to launch a prosecution.
The substantial sum of money is on offer in the hope of finding new leads in the case.
Investigators believe someone in the local community might be able to assist them with further knowledge and any information provided to police will be treated with the strictest confidence.
It's hoped the reward will encourage those with information to come forward and provide Theresa's daughter Daylene Barlow with closure on her mother's death.
