Queensland police have set up a crime scene at a property west of Brisbane as they continue to probe the death of former bikie Shane Bowden.
Police cordoned off a property at Wanora, northwest of Ipswich on Monday night, a day after they released footage of two getaway cars, which they allege were linked to the murder, found torched and dumped.
Bowden, 48, was shot 21 times in an “execution-style” murder in his Gold Coast driveway in October 2020.
He was a former Mongol who was forced out of the gang and patched over to rivals the Finks.
Detective Superintendent Brendan Smith last week said police believe the Mongols gang was responsible for the murder, and have established two lines of inquiry.
“We are certainly looking at it being either a personal vendetta by that gang against him personally, or the fact that he was a Mongol and then he went back to being a Fink, and we know that they don’t take kindly to members chopping and changing between gangs,” he said.
Last week, police announced a $250,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of the person, or persons, found responsible for Bowden’s murder.
In addition, an appropriate indemnity from prosecution will be recommended for any accomplice, provided they did not commit the crime, who first gives the information.
