    Australia - Ricky Balcombe, 16, Geelong, Vic, 5 May 1995

    Police in Geelong, Australia have announced they have applied to the Serious Crimes Rewards Committee for a $1 million reward for information in the 1995 stabbing of 16-year-old Ricky Balcombe. There is currently a $50,000 reward.

    Charges against a local man, Karl Hague, were originally dropped after two witnesses died. Detective Senior Boris Buick says he's still a person of interest and is convinced there are people who know exactly how Ricky was killed but they're not coming forward.

    Ricky's mother, Christine Loader, is desperate to know who killed her son 20 years ago, and why.

    "He was my world, and I miss him so, so, so much, please just help me understand why he was taken," Ms Loader said.
