Gold Coast woman to front court in relation to cold case murder

A 69-year-old woman is due in court today charged with making a false statement to police in relation to the murder of a Gold Coast man over 20 years ago.

The execution style murder of Phillip Carlyle in 1997 baffled police for years until improvements in technology resulted in the case being reopened in 2016.

Carlyle was found dead in his Robina office after being shot in the head four times.


Due to the curious nature of the murder, investigators have previously said that Carlyle’s murder would have been known to him.
