A $100,000 reward is being offered for any information that will lead to the capture of the murderers of AC/DC manager Crispin Dye.

The 41 year old was assaulted and robbed while out drinking in Surry Hills and Darlinghurst on December 23, 1993, and died in hospital two days later from major head injuries.

According to witnesses, three males of Pacific Islander appearance in their late teens were seen standing over the body and fled the scene heading towards Goulburn St.

The reward has been welcomed by Homicide Squad Commander Detective Superintendent Mick Willing. He said: “There are people out there who know those responsible for Mr Dye’s death and we’re hoping this reward may prompt them to get in touch with police.”

Dye, who has been described as a “fun-loving, friendly and decent man,” managed AC/DC for seven years before venturing off to create his own music. He was out celebrating the completion of his debut release A Heart like Mine on the night of his assault.

Anyone with information is being urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page:
