WATCH: Detectives renew appeal into Logan cold case murder

Police have today launched a fresh appeal to try and solve the murder of a Logan man ten years ago.

John Anthony Lazzaro was shot dead in the living room of his Rochedale South home on the evening of April 11, 2012, after two masked men burst into the house.

His 19-year-old daughter witnessed his murder but was not harmed.


Mr Lazzaro’s pet rottweiler cross was also shot but survived after undergoing surgery.

A $250,000 reward was doubled to $500,000 three years ago but detectives have been unable to crack the case.

Police have now released fresh CCTV footage of a vehicle of interest in the hope it may jog someone’s memory.

The nighttime vision of the tray-back utility was captured on camera at a nearby fruit shop a short time before the murder occurred.

Detectives believe the vehicle is linked to the case and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

“This man’s family is still deeply affected by what occurred ten years ago,” Detective Acting Superintendent Mark White told reporters on Monday.

“We have a commitment to them that we will continue this investigation until those responsible are held accountable”.
