Germany/Australia: Investigators Persist in Solving 2005 Murder of Simone Strobel, 25

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, police investigators in both Australia and Germany are appealing to virtually anyone with knowledge as to where murder victim Simone Strobel's what happened to murder victim Simone Strobel's clothes to come forward.

If anyone possesses any information as to who may have been responsible for Simone's death, please call Crime Stoppers on: 1-800-333-000.

Tragically, Ms. Strobel's naked body was found on February 19, 2005, a week after she vanished from the Lismore Tourist Caravan Park, not far from Sydney.
Simone's black tank top was found on Uralba Street the day she was reported missing, but her white pants and red skirt have never been recovered. Police have previously said they believed Simone's killer took her clothes, but accidentally dropped her shirt while moving her body.
It is nine years this week since Simone was killed and German police have issued a 10,000 Euro (AUD$15,252) reward for information leading to who may have killed her.
COMMENT: Detective Senior Sergeant Mackie said Ms, Strobel and her boyfriend, Tobias Suckfuell, arrived in Lismore on the day she disappeared.
"On February 11, 2005, they checked in at the Tourist Caravan Park in Lismore, NSW and spent the evening together at a pub (the Gollan) in downtown Lismore and afterwards returned with friends to the campsite," Mackie said.
Police want to speak to anyone who has seen the red skirt or white pants Ms. Strobel was wearing when she disappeared, and anyone who was staying at the caravan park at the time.
Investigators would also like to speak to anyone who saw Ms. Strobel, 25, Tobias Suckfuell, 24, Katrin Suckfuell, 28, and Jens Martin, 25, at the Gollan Hotel that night.
Strobel's parents, Gustl and Gabi, believe Tobias Suckfuell killed their daughter, yet  viable leads and evidence is fleeting.
Police believe the prime suspect in the death of Simone is her former boyfriend, Tobias Suckfuell, 00, who is now living with his Australian-born wife, Samantha Moran, in Germany.
In November 2011, Suckfuell, who refused to return to Lismore for the 2007 inquest into Ms. Strobel's death, was living with Ms. Moran's family in their mansion in the Perth suburb of City Beach. 

On January 16, 2011 the couple placed an advertisement looking for work on the website, Gumtree.
Days before his July 2012 wedding to Moran, Suckfuell and an unidentified Berlin man, 46, were arrested at a train station in Schweinfurt allegedly with a bag containing 300 grams of hashish and a knife.
Suckfuell had been known to drift in Bavaria, the European ski fields and South African beaches, before he met Moran.

Anyone knowing the precise whereabouts of Suckfuell should contact:
