Four months after her daughter’s death, the mother of Queensland school girl Tiahleigh Palmer has broken her silence to plead for information about who is responsible.
On October 30 last year, Tiahleigh was dropped off at Marsden State High school in Logan. Six days later her body was found in the Pimpama River. Her backpack and school uniform have never been found.
Police are offering a $250,000 reward and indemnity for anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest.
Cindy Palmer, Tiahleigh’s mother, remembers her daughter as a lovable, caring girl who had aspirations to become a dancer.
She said not knowing what had happened to her was the hardest thing.
“We definitely do need answers,” Ms Palmer said to Yahoo News. “But we don’t want another family to have to go through what we’re going through, so that’s at the top of our list as well.”
“She didn’t deserve what happened to her.”
Ms Palmer appealed for anyone with information about Tiahleigh’s death to contact Crime Stoppers.
Police suspect Tiahleigh missed school to meet with somebody. They have also previously shared that they believe some individuals they have interviewed are withholding information for fear of potential repercussions.
