The Sydney Morning Herald in Australia has recently reported that a cold case involving a former AC/DC manager has been reopened.
Crispin Dye was the manager of the band during the 1980s. On December 23, 1993, he was robbed and beaten to death by unknown assailants. The assault was said to have taken place, when a number of men were being killed in the Sydney area by assailiants who believed the victims were gay. But despite a witness had described seeing “three young men of Pacific Islander appearance” standing over Dye’s body after the attack, homicide detectives were never able to obtain enough evidence to file charges, and the case went cold.
Australian authorities are now offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the killer’s capture.
