Emergency services were called to a unit on Onslow Avenue at Elizabeth Bay, about 5.20pm on Monday 12 June 1995, after the body of 53-year-old Kenneth Brennan was located.

Mr Brennan had suffered several stab wounds to his chest.

Local police, with assistance from the Homicide Squad, conducted a thorough investigation at the time, however, no one was charged in relation to the incident.

In 1996, a Coronial Inquest found that Mr Brennan died of stab wounds to the chest inflicted by unknown persons.

One year later (Tuesday 11 March 1997), the NSW Government announced a $100,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of those responsible for Mr Brennan’s murder.

In 2016, detectives from the Unsolved Homicide Unit established Strike Force Skarratt to re-investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Despite an exhaustive re-investigation, no one has ever been charged in connection to Mr Brennan’s murder.

The case will undergo a formal review under the Unsolved Homicide Unit’s revised framework.

Homicide Squad Commander, Detective Superintendent Daniel Doherty said police would welcome any information from the community that may assist future investigations.

“It has been almost 25 years since Mr Brennan was brutally murdered at his home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs,” Det Supt Doherty said.

“Mr Brennan was a senior history teacher and well-respected member of the school and wider community.

“We believe that someone in the community has information that may assist our detectives with further inquiries into this incident, so that we may provide answers to Mr Brennan’s family.

“A $100,000 is still on offer and we would encourage anyone in the community that knows even the smallest detail to come forward – it’s never too late,” Det Supt Doherty said.

Anyone with information that may assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
