POLICE were digging up the backyard of a Carr Street property in West Perth on Tuesday seeking “items of interest” in a decades-old suspected murder case.
Mother of two Lisa Brown was last seen on Palmerston Street in Highgate on November 10, 1998, when she was 19 years old.
She was known to associate with people who lived in the Carr Street house at the time (they’ve long since moved out).
Hyde Park Lake was also dredged at the time in search of her body, and nearby apartments door-knocked, but to no avail.
In 2017 the state government announced a $250,000 reward for information, suspecting she had been murdered. A mobile police facility was set up on Brisbane Street near where she was last seen, and police reported a good response to their callout for information.
The house had been searched during the initial investigation.
