Reward for ‘cold case’ hit-run tip


Jennifer Moller

POLICE are offering a $250,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person involved in the hit-and-run death of Frankston woman Jennifer Moller outside Karingal Bowling Club five years ago.

Ms Moller was waiting to cross Skye Rd, Frankston, 1.30pm, on 27 April 2012, when she was struck by a car, believed to be a 2011 white Mercedes Benz sedan.

The 54-year-old was treated at the scene by paramedics but later died. The driver fled the scene.

Detectives believe the reward will entice someone with key information to come forward.

Husband John Moller, 53, said: “It’s been five years and we still have no closure.

“I was there, I saw my wife get hit by the car, and 30 minutes later they told me she had died; it was traumatic.

“The same day I had to get my children from school and tell them what had happened. They have been through so much.

“Please, if you know anything, report it to Crime Stoppers.”

Major Collision Investigation Unit Detective Sergeant Daryll Out said a conviction would provide some long-needed closure to the heartbroken family.

“The day Jennifer lost her life, her children lost their mother and her husband lost his wife. Nothing will ever mend the broken hearts of Jennifer’s family, or sadly bring her back, but to have someone held to account will help to bring some much-deserved closure for them.

“At the time, a number of witnesses came forward which helped locate the Mercedes and identified a person of interest but police need more information which may lead to the arrest and conviction of the driver involved.”

Anyone with information about the collision should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via online.
