According to SA Police, about 9.56pm on Friday 5 March 21-year-old Jasmeen Kaur finished her shift at Southern Cross Homes, Marion Road, Plympton North.

She was expected to return to her Flinders Park home that night in her green Toyota Camry, SA registration S836 BFI.

The alarm was raised by concerned family members the next morning, Saturday 6 March, after Jasmeen did not come home.

SA Police located her Camry still parked at her work place.

Police are now appealing for anyone that may have seen a young Indian man loitering in the car park or waiting for Jasmeen on Friday night, or in the weeks leading up to the incident.

Police believe about 9.56pm on Friday night the man drove Jasmeen from her work in the pictured metallic blue Holden Commodore, SA registration S267CJD.

The car was captured on camera travelling on the Northern Expressway north through Willaston at 10.58pm on Friday 5 March.

Then at 11.30pm the car travelled south through Willaston and back to the Princes Highway/Pt Wakefield Road. Police think the car accidentally took a wrong turn to Willaston.

Later, about 12.09am Saturday 6 March, the car was detected by safety cameras travelling north on the Princes Highway, Two Wells.

It’s believed the car travelled north along the Princes Highway from 12.09am to 3.07am when it was detected by cameras at Stirling North (just south of Port Augusta).

Between 3.07am and 2.27pm (Saturday 6), a period of 11.5hours, it is believed the car turned off the Princes Highway and onto Flinders Ranges Way toward Quorn, Hawker and Morolana Creek. Police are appealing for anyone with information or dashcam footage in this area between these times to come forward. Information on the car’s whereabouts during this time is critical.

Between 2.27pm and 5.09pm Saturday 6 March the metallic blue Commodore was detected on the Stirling North camera and travelled south back to Adelaide along the Princes Highway.

Anyone who saw the metallic blue coloured Commodore with a young Indian male driver, about 20-years-old with a neatly trimmed beard and moustache and neatly dressed, at any stage between 9.56pm Friday 5 and 5.27pm Saturday 6 March, possibly at any service stations or shops, or anyone with dashcam footage between these times is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 – you can remain anonymous.

Detectives are also trying to locate some missing property owned by Jasmeen. A brown hand bag, her black slip on shoes and work ID and key fob. These items may be in a parking bay, on the road side, at a service station or rest stop.

Police are also looking for a plate and a knife. The public should not assume the knife was involved in Jasmeen’s death but both are valuable to the investigation and need to be located.

On Sunday 7 March, Southern District CIB and Major Crime Detectives spoke to a 20-year-old Kurralta Park man and flew with him to Port Augusta where he directed them to an area at Moralana Creek, about 40 kilometres north of Hawker where officers located a shallow grave.

On Monday 8 March Major Crime Detectives and the police Forensic Response Section located the deceased woman in the grave site.

The 20-year-old man was charged with failing to report a death and murder. He appear in the Port Augusta Magistrates on Tuesday 9 March and was remanded in custody.
