Boots may help solve Alexis Jeffery's murder

DETECTIVES investigating the murder of Goondiwindi's Alexis Jeffery hope someone may have located a pair of reef-style boots believed to be connected to the incident.

Darling Downs district officer Detective Acting Inspector Paul Hart said police were trying to find a pair of grey and black reef-style boots.

"The boots in question (pictured) also commonly known as irrigation boots, are made from wetsuit type material," Det. Act. Insp. Hart said.

"We believe they were possibly discarded or placed somewhere around the Goondiwindi area around the time of Ms Jeffery's death."

Officers have released an image of a pair of boots they believe to be similar in appearance to those they think are related to the mother-of-three's murder.

Det. Act. Insp. Hart said the inquiries being pursued had come as a result of information from the public.

"Those things often relate to possible identification and movements of people and that all ties back to the different things we are looking at.

"We often find that pieces of clothing can often help us with identification and some forensic analysis."

Ms Jeffery's body was discovered on the banks of the Macintyre River on the morning of March 16.

Detectives from Toowoomba and Warwick have been based in a major investigation centre with their Goondiwindi counterparts since the days after her death.

They have been assisted by officers from the homicide investigation unit.

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