To date, the person or persons responsible for the homicide of Mr Martin have not been identified.
The WA Police Force has formed Taskforce Ravello in response to the murder which brings together specialist officers from the Gang Crime and Homicide Squads.
The Government of Western Australia is offering of a reward of up to $1,000,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the homicide of Nikolas Thomas Martin on December 12, 2020 at Kwinana.
The Government may be prepared to consider recommending a protection from prosecution or pardon for any informant with information that leads to the conviction of the person or persons responsible, provided that the informant was not directly responsible for the homicide.
As stated by Police Minister Michelle Roberts:
“This weekend’s killing displayed an open contempt for the law and for the people of this state.
“Families and individuals deserve to go about their lawful business in peace and security, and not have this sort of trauma inflicted upon them by those who operate outside the law.
“The McGowan Government stands firmly with our Police, both in seeking to identify and bring the person or persons responsible to justice.
“And I know that our police will leave no stone unturned in their search for those responsible.
“The offering of this reward is a measure of how seriously the Government takes this matter and I urge anyone who knows anything, to disregard manufactured codes of silence designed to protect the guilty.
“Because by speaking the truth, they will make our community a safer place.”
