Mr Daley said there are grave concerns for the welfare of the 31-year-old, who disappeared 16 years ago. “Ms Winfield was last seen at her Lennox Head home at 60 Sandstone Crescent on the 16th of May 1993,” he said.
“Her estranged husband reported her missing to police on the 27 May 1993.
“She left behind two young children, aged five and ten at the time, making the attack all the more heinous.
“Ms Winfield’s family, particularly her children, deserve to know what happened – and her murderer deserves to be behind bars.
“I hope that the lure of a cash reward may encourage those with information, who may have been reluctant to come forward at the time, to help Police bring those responsible to justice.
“Police are interested in any information which will lead to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Ms Winfield’s death.
“It may not seem like much but if anybody has any piece of information, however small, it could prove to be the vital link police need to find out what happened.”
Unsolved Homicide Team Investigator, Detective Chief Inspector Dennis Bray, said the Northern Region Unsolved Homicide team are dedicated to continuing their investigations into matter.
“This remains an active investigation and police are hopeful the reward announced today will assist police in their ongoing investigations,” he said.
“Police urge anyone who may have information about the incident, no matter how small, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
“In particular police are appealing to anyone with details about Bronwyn’s movements on the 15th and 16th of May 1993, to come forward.
“Detectives are also keen to speak with anyone who was a close friend or associate or Bronwyn’s.”
Mr Daley said that any information given to Crime Stoppers will be treated as strictly confidential and may be given at any time of the day or night.
