Crispin Dye was long time manager of AC/DC

By: Desiree Savage

Crispin Dye was the long-time manager of Aussie rock back ACDC when he was bashed to death more than 20 years ago - a $100,000 reward is now being offered to find his killers.

The 41 year old from far north Queensland had been out on the town in Surry Hills on Wednesday December 22, 1993, when he was found badly beaten and clutching to life near Taylor Square around 4:30am. He died in St George Hospital of major head injuries two days later.

"Crispin was a fun-loving, friendly and decent man, who was robbed of his life far too soon," Detective Superintendent Mick Willing, from the NSW Police's unsolved homicide team, said in a statement.

"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."

Detectives say Mr Dye was assaulted and robbed of his wallet, while a witness reported seeing three males in their late teens or early twenties standing over his unconscious body before running away from the scene towards Goulburn Street. They were described as of pacific islander appearance.

A number of investigations – and one coronial inquest (in 1995) – have been conducted to try and find Mr Dye's murderers, but as yet, no one has been charged.

There are reports it may have been a 'gay-hate' crime.

Anyone with information is being urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
