Victoria Police Cold Case files opened on 3AW Breakfast
3AW Breakfast have been given a fascinating look into some of Victoria's most high-profile unsolved homicide investigations with one case file stretching back over 50 years.
Detective Senior Sergeant Ron Iddles, who heads up Victoria Police's Cold Case team, joined Ross and John in the studio to discuss some of the cases he believes can be solved with some assistance from the public.
"Our principal aim is to look at it (a cold case file) with new eyes and to see if there is something that was been missed by the original investigation," Mr Iddles said.
"But in most of these investigations, and I always say, there is somebody in the community who has the answer and it's about finding that person to get the answer."
Mr Iddles told Ross and John that just last week he was contacted by a woman who provided previously unknown details on the 1980 murder of Thornbury bookshop owner Maria James.
"This lady rang and said 'I've kept a secret for 33 years. I knocked on that shop door at quarter past 12 and the door was locked at the front of the shop, I did a U-turn and I saw a man come out of the shop'," Mr Iddles said.
"Now there is a lady in community who for 33 years has held a secret because she didn't want to be involved. She saw an article in the paper about Maria James and saw a picture of Maria James' son Mark and decided to come forward."

If you have any information on the crimes discussed by Detective Iddles or any other cases please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Ross Stevenson and John Burns entertain listeners with their razor sharp wit and oddball humour every morning. And every day the best segments of their on-air - and sometimes off-air - program are published on 3AW.com.au.

The Karmein Chan case was also a mystery I remember when it happened so clearly it was so sad, her mother is such a nice lady I always hoped they would catch Mr Cruel.poptart Monday 21 January, 2013 - 4:44 PM
I've always been intrigued by the Eloise Worledge case and to think there was even a 10,000 dollar reward offered and nobody came forward that is a really frustrating mystery.mandy Thursday 17 January, 2013 - 8:38 AM
