HOMICIDE detectives hope a $100,000 reward will help solve the mystery murder of a popular dance teacher who was killed in his sleep in Sydney almost 14 years ago.

Anthony Charles Attard, 38, was last seen alive at his Girraween home on the night of Thursday, June 17, 1999, by a colleague he had shared a coffee with following a rock and roll dance class at the Hornsby RSL.

His battered body was found by his girlfriend the following day.

A post mortem revealed a heavy object had been used in the attack.

"Tony", as he was known by friends, operated a successful dance school which employed several instructors and had numerous students across Sydney.

Unsolved Homicides Detective Chief Inspector John Lehmann said that from all accounts Tony was a popular man who had no known enemies.

He said while police did not know why he was targeted, they did believe his killer may have lived and could still live in the local community.

The reward is offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
