1997 SA murder case 'eminently solvable'

South Australian police believe a violent murder of a woman in 1997 is "eminently solvable".

Investigators are retesting evidence hoping a suspect might be identified in the murder case of Susana Bobridge.

"We are targeting cases and exhibits where we believe that advances in technology will provide police with fresh leads," said Detective Brevet Sergeant Shaun Osborn on Monday.

Ms Bobridge, a 30-year-old drug addict who worked as a prostitute at times to support her heroin habit, was last seen alive at 9.30pm on January 9, 1997 getting into a white car on Port Road at West Hindmarsh.

She was found shot later that evening.

Police are also hoping a man who made several anonymous calls to Major Crime in early 1997 will make contact again.

"His information has proven accurate and may hold the key to solving this case," Det Sgt Osborn said.

"He was anonymous then - so we have no way to get in touch with him - and he can remain so today, but I urge him to call Crime Stoppers."

A $200,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest.
