Victoria Police and the Australian Federal Police (AFP) are seeking assistance from the public to locate wanted man Graham Gene Potter.
Potter has been on the run since he failed to appear on bail for conspiracy to murder charges at Melbourne Magistrate’s Court on 1 February, 2010.
He is currently facing criminal charges including conspiracy to murder and serious Commonwealth drug offences. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Potter previously spent 15 years in prison for the 1981 murder of Wollongong teenager Kim Barry. He is described as Caucasian, 55-years-old, 175cm tall, medium to solid build, brown eyes, fair complexion with brown greying hair and wears glasses. Potter has a propensity for changing his appearance and has used a number of aliases including Josh Lawson, John Page, Jim Henderson and Peter Adams.
He is believed to be working in remote and rural areas of Australia in exchange for board and food. Police have received reports of sightings in Tully and Ravenshoe in North Queensland. Anyone who sights the wanted man is advised not to approach him as he is considered dangerous. Please dial Triple Zero (000). All other information regarding his whereabouts should be directed to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppers.com.au.
In February 2011, Victoria Police announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Potter. This reward is still available.
