Police call for help in murder puzzle

THE mystery surrounding the murder of a Goondiwindi woman continues to puzzle investigators as they call for public help.

Police divers have already combed the Macintyre River where the body of 24-year-old Alexis Jeffery was found 11 days ago and talked to a number of people who were out on the night she was last seen.

In a fresh appeal, investigators are calling for help to try and identify a red and black camping chair which was found on the river bank near the town’s cultural centre, close to where Ms Jeffery was last seen alive.

The nearby stretch of river is often used by recreational fisherman and families.

Ms Jeffery, a mother of three, was murdered after a night out with friends at the Queensland Hotel and Royal Hotel but was seen walking alone about 3.30am.

Police are still waiting for forensic test results to confirm how the 24-year-old woman died, telling local media there were no signs of significant trauma.

It comes as friends and family grieve the loss of the “fun-loving” woman.

Cards, a cross and flowers have been laid behind the town’s cultural centre to commemorate Ms Jeffery, while tributes pour in online.

A dedicated Facebook page has been set up for friends, family and locals to post memories, photos, stories and tributes.
