From May 2015:
In October last year, police said they had new leads in the case of Penny Hill, a young woman who was found unconscious and severely bashed on the side of the road at Coolah, in the NSW central west, several days after starting a job as a nanny at the nearby Black Stump Motel...
In an interview on Channel 7's Sunday Night program, Detective Sergeant Jason Darcy from the Central West unsolved homicide unit said Ms Hill's boyfriend, Shane Williams, was a person of interest in the case...
An initial suspect, a chef at the hotel, died in a car accident in late 1991. Another man investigated by police, owner of the motel and former drummer of Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs Col Baigent, has also maintained he is innocent.
