$100k reward to find AC/DC manager's killer
Police hope a AU$100,000 (NZ$119,000) reward will lead to the killer of a former AC/DC manager who died after being assaulted and robbed in Sydney more than 20 years ago.
Crispin Dye, 41, from far North Queensland, was visiting friends and family in the inner city in December 1993 when he was assaulted and robbed of his wallet after drinking with friends in Surry Hills.
A witness reported seeing three men of Pacific Islander appearance, aged in their late teens or early 20s, standing over Dye's unconscious body before they ran from the scene.
Dye, a long-time manager for the Australian rock band, died in hospital of head injuries.
The incident occurred during a spate of gay-hate killings in Sydney.
More than 20 years later, the NSW government has offered a AU$100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Mr Dye's death.
"By all accounts, Crispin Dye was a fun-loving, friendly and decent man, who was robbed of his life far too soon," Detective Superintendent Mick Willing, from the NSW Police's unsolved homicide team, said in a statement.
"There are people out there who know those responsible for Dye's death and we're hoping this reward may prompt them to get in touch with police."
