South Australia Police today have revealed the existence of Task Force Cornus which is investigating the 1994 fatal explosion at the office of the National Crime Authority (NCA) in Adelaide.

About 9.15am on Wednesday 2 March 1994 an explosion occurred at the NCA office which was situated in the CPS Credit Union Building, Waymouth Street, Adelaide.

The explosion caused the death of Detective Sergeant Geoffrey Leigh Bowen, serious injuries to Mr Peter John Wallis, a lawyer employed by the NCA, and extensive property damage to the building.

The death of Detective Sergeant Bowen and serious injuries to Mr Wallis has been declared a Major Crime.

On Thursday 11 March 1994 Domenic Perre was arrested and charged with the murder of Detective Sergeant Bowen and the attempted murder of Mr Wallis.

On 9 September 1994 the then Director of Public Prosecutions submitted a nolle prosequi indicating that he did not propose to proceed with the charges.

In 1999 the State Coroner Mr Wayne Chivell conducted an Inquest into the death of Detective Geoffrey Bowen.

Today SA Police said Task Force Cornus, active since September 2015, is being led by the Major Crime Investigation Branch and involves a team of specialist officers.

The officers have conducted an intensive review of all aspects of the crime and the previous investigation and judicial processes that followed. The findings of that review remain confidential and will not be disclosed.

Earlier this year additional resources were provided to Task Force Cornus, with the inquiry now a major active investigation that involves significant resources.

In addition to investigating who is responsible for this crime a significant focus will also be on any witness who withheld or fabricated information in the past.

A reward of $1m is offered for information leading to the conviction of the person or people responsible.

Since 1994 there have been a number of anonymous calls to Crime Stoppers which have been of assistance.

It would be beneficial to the current investigation for those callers to ring Crime Stoppers again this evening between 6pm and 9pm to speak directly with investigators who are now conducting this investigation.

Anyone with information about the National Crime Authority bombing is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at https://crimestopperssa.com.au/
