Reward for ‘cold case’ hit-run tip POLICE are offering a $250,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person involved in the hit-and-run death of Frankston woman Jennifer Moller outside Karingal Bowling Club five years ago. Ms Moller was waiting to cross Skye Rd, Frankston, 1.30pm, on 27 April 2012, when she was struck by a car, believed to be a 2011 white Mercedes Benz sedan. The 54-year-old was treated at the scene by paramedics but later died. The driver fled the scene. Detectives believe the reward will entice someone with key information to come forward. Husband John Moller, 53, said: “It’s been five years and we still have no closure. “I was there, I saw my wife get hit by the car, and 30 minutes later they told me she had died; it was traumatic. “The same day I had to get my children from school and tell them what had happened. They have been through so much. “Please, if you know anything, report it to Crime Stoppers.” Major Collision Investigation Unit Detective Sergeant Daryll Out said a conviction would provide some longneeded closure to the heartbroken family. “The day Jennifer lost her life, her children lost their mother and her hus-

Jennifer Moller

band lost his wife. Nothing will ever mend the broken hearts of Jennifer’s family, or sadly bring her back, but to have someone held to account will help to bring some much-deserved closure for them. “At the time, a number of witnesses came forward which helped locate the Mercedes and identified a person of interest but police need more information which may lead to the arrest and conviction of the driver involved.” Anyone with information about the collision should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via crimestoppersvic.com.au online.

Morning tea with magic MORE than 40 Mornington Peninsula business women got together on Thursday 11 May for the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event in Dromana’s Green Room, raising $3236 for the Cancer Council. Magician Cath Jamison entertained while auction items included manicures, massages and food. Held by the Mornington Peninsula Business Women Facebook Group,

the annual event was part of a national campaign to recognise how the Cancer Council saves lives through prevention, and offers counselling and support services. “The day is as much about supporting each other in our community as it is about supporting the Cancer Council. We were thrilled to be coming together as peninsula women to support this great cause, and thank the

Cancer Council for all the wonderful work it does in our community in so many ways,” one of the organisers Jo Violeta said. “It doesn’t matter if you are a successful business woman, juggling part time work or starting out in your own business – if you are touched by cancer you need all the help you can get”.
