New South Wales police reinvestigating the 36-year-old murder of Griffith anti-drugs campaigner Donald Mackay have been told two hit men dumped the body in a well at a property near Hay on their way back to Melbourne.

Police have been able to establish historical links between key figures of the Griffith mafia - alleged to have organised the hit - and the property now at the centre of the latest investigation.

The theory, believed to be supported by fresh information from an inside source, suggests Mackay was shot in the carpark of the Griffith Hotel, bundled into the boot of a car and driven to a Hay property 150 kilometres away before the killers moved on to Echuca and Melbourne.
