Simone: Mystery still



POLICE are keeping an open mind about the cause of German tourist Simone Strobel's death, a media spokesman said last night.

Refusing to declare a murder hunt yesterday, the spokesman said detectives would explore all possibilities before they would announce what killed Simone.

Simone Strobel was travelling around Australia when she disappeared in Lismore around 11.55pm on February 11.

The 25-year-old kindergarten teacher left where she was staying at the Lismore Tourist Caravan Park for a walk, and was found dead six days later in the park near the intersection of Dawson and Uralba Streets.

The spokesman said a recent call for witnesses to a late-model Commodore placed at the scene around the time Simone disappeared had drawn the desired response.

The spokesman said police received new information about the car which detectives would be following up.

However, he said the call would not be repeated.

Similarly, he said a comfit picture released last month did not need to be published again.

Post-mortem examination results have not yet been publicly released by the Coroner.
