Police believe they have already spoken to people who hold the key to solving Logan schoolgirl Tiahleigh Palmer’s murder and hope a new $250,000 reward will provide the incentive to get them to talk.

Detective Superintendent Dave Hutchinson announced the reward on Monday, after the Queensland Government agreed to fund it, along with indemnity from prosecution for the first person person to provide information that leads to the convictionof Tiahleigh’s killer.

He said the indemnity was particularly important, as detectives surmised they had already interviewedpeople who knew what happened to the 12-year-old nearly four months ago.

However, he said investigators believed they were withholding information from police, either out of fear for repercussions of their own involvement in her death or loyalty to Tiahleigh’s killer.

“Importantly, the offer, in addition to the rewardalso includes a recommendationfor indemnity from prosecution for any accomplice who didn’t actually commit the crime, who first comes forward with information,” Superintendent Hutchinsonsaid.

“We are of the view there are people out there who have information about this homicide.

“We are hoping the reward and more importantly the indemnity offer anincentive to come forward.”

The last confirmed sighting of the 12-year-old was when she was dropped at Marsden State High School on October 30, 2015.

On November 5 her decomposing body was found 40 kilometres away, on the banks of the Pimpama River.

Police believe the 12-year-old had a pre-arranged meeting with an unknown person the day she was dropped at school.

A team of investigators were working around the clock on her death in the wake of her body being found, however, in the past three monthsthere has been no significant breakthrough.

Tiahleigh’s pink backpack and school uniform, both crucial pieces of evidence in the case, have not yet been found.

Superintendent Hutchinson said detectives believed they knew where and when Tiahleigh was killed but would not yet divulge that publicly.

He said they were confident there was more than one person involved in the young girl’sdeath.

“Wecertainly believe there is more than one person who knows what happened,” he said.

“The indemnity isin addition to the reward and will be recommended forany person who didn’t commit the crime. But ithas to be thefirst person who comes forward, not the second.It’s not available to the second person.”
