Buses covered with smiling face of murdered schoolgirl

It’s hoped the smiling face of murdered Logan schoolgirl Tiahleigh Palmer will connect with people as her family and Police continue to hunt for her killer.

The back of four council buses have been covered with a giant photo of the 12-year-old.

One of the buses services Marsden State High School where Tiahleigh was last seen alive on October 30 last year. Her body was found six days later on the banks of the Pimpama River.


Her mother, Cyndi Palmer, is behind the ‘Justice for Tiahleigh’ campaign which is urging anyone with information that could help find her daughter’s killer/s to come forward.

“The buses were my doing, it was what I wanted,” Ms Palmer said during the launch of the buses at Park Ridge Transit on Sunday.

“The slightest information could be crucial for police to catch the person or persons responsible for the horrific crime against my beautiful daughter,” she added.

Ms Palmer has also made purple wristbands emblazoned with ‘Justice for Tiahleigh’ as part of the campaign.
“We have a person or people walking our streets that have killed my daughter.

“Someone knows something. If you are afraid to speak out or afraid to get in trouble just write a letter and send it to the police,” she said.

“It is getting harder, not easier, but I think that was to be expected, it has taken some time to sink in but you know we still have counselling and stick together as a family.”

Police are offering a $250,000 reward to anyone with information that may catch Tiahleigh’s murderer.

Anyone with any information can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
