    As part of this latest appeal to the public, detectives have released an image of a truck which was seized from a property in Riverstone on Tuesday, April 13, 2004 — the day after Ms Cawthorne’s murder.

    The truck was seen in the Arndell Park area shortly before and shortly after Ms Cawthorne’s death, and while it was eventually returned to its owner — who had reported it stolen — police still believe it may be the vehicle Sandra’s killer or killers used to get away from the scene after her murder

    What a sad story. I find it hard to imagine a truck as a getaway car it's not exactly small. i hope her family and children find answers. Someone was very angry.

    Not enough info given to make any conclusions

    Her lifestyle certainly elevated her risk, though it sounds almost like a hit

    -What time of day did this happen? I saw she was discovered around midnight

    -Was she "working" when this occurred?

    -Was she indebted to anyone (Drugs/money/ETC..) ?

    -Did she have a pimp?

    -Was he questioned if she did ?

    -Who was the father of her child?

    -Was he questioned?

    -Was there any similar crimes, in the area?

    -Any ballistic match of those bullets to any other unsolved crimes?

    -What caliber?, is it a common caliber, or an oddball, you may be able to trace the purchase of the ammo of?

    -Any fingerprints, taken from the vehicle in question?

    -Any fiber evidence to link the victim to that truck?

    -Any shell casings?

    ..a lot needs to be established, before you can make a conclusion
