Michelle Bright, 17, was last seen as she was being dropped off outside the Commercial Hotel in Gulgong, NSW on the 27th February 1999. She had just attended a friend’s 15th birthday party. Her semi-naked body was found three days later, only 1km from her home, on the side of Barneys Reef Rd. She had been sexually assaulted before she was murdered.
A post-mortem examination was unable to determine how Michelle died.
