SA Police today released CCTV footage and a new photograph of an Adelaide man who went missing in 2013 and is believed to have been murdered.
Inspector Greg Hutchins, from the Major Crime Investigation Branch, today appealed to the public for information relating to the disappearance and suspected murder of Kenneth “Kenny” Camplin.
Mr Camplin (pictured left) was last seen alive at 12.25am on the morning of Friday 27 December 2013 at a fast food restaurant drive through at Paralowie.
Police believe Mr Camplin then returned home, as his vehicle and the receipt from the restaurant were found at this home address.
It is believed he went missing in suspicious circumstances shortly after and was then murdered. His body has not been located.
“Investigators have spoken to a large number of Mr Camplin’s family, friends and associates and a snapshot of his life has been created,” Inspector Hutchins said.
“These interviews have led police to believe that Mr Camplin was a social user of illicit drugs and on occasions, supplied small amounts of drugs to his friends.
“However, police are of the opinion that these people have not been completely forthcoming about Mr Camplin’s involvement with drugs as they are trying to protect his reputation.
“A clear motive for Mr Camplin’s murder has not been established.”
Mr Hutchins said it was important that anyone with information about Mr Camplin speak to police to assist investigators to locate his body and identify his killer, or killers.
“A number of persons of interest to this investigation have been identified and those people have been spoken to and will be subject to further investigation,” he added.
The CCTV footage of Mr Camplin taken hours before he went missing – and released by police today – shows the clothes he was wearing when last seen.
