Tasman Police are today announcing a $100,000 reward for information relating to the murder of Simon Allan Bevers in Hope in March 2022.

Simon, aged 56, was found dead in his tent at an apple orchard in Edens Road, Hope on 9 March 2022.

It is believed he was killed in his tent between 8pm on Monday 7 March 2022 and the morning of 9 March 2022, when he was located deceased.

“Tomorrow marks one year since Simon was found dead,” says Detective Inspector Mark Chenery, Tasman District Crime Services Manager.

“Our investigation team has worked tirelessly to provide answers for Simon’s family, and to hold the person or people responsible for Simon’s death to account.”

Police will pay a reward of up to $100,000 for material information or evidence which leads to the identity and conviction of any person or people responsible for Simon’s death.

The offer will remain in force until 31 May 2023. The Commissioner of Police will determine the amount of the reward and will, if necessary, apportion payment where there is more than one claimant.

Immunity from prosecution may be considered for any accomplice, not being the main offender, who provides information or evidence to Police.

“I urge anyone with information which could assist the investigation team to get in touch and help us provide the answers Simon’s family so desperately need,” says Detective Inspector Chenery.

Information can be provided via our 105 service, or by calling the investigation team directly on 03 545 9853. Please quote file number 220309/6371.
