Killer Tsakmakis suspected of Willi Koeppen murder

first_imgTelevision chef Willi Koeppen – who disappeared on 29 February 1976 – has been connected with one of Victoria’s most well-known murderers, Alex Tsakmakis. The Keoppen family are requesting that police reopen the case, as facts discovered since the event have suggested that it could be solved upon further investigation. Testimony taken from Mark ‘Chopper’ Read, who was imprisoned at Pentridge with Tsakmakis, reveals that he spoke of Keoppens while behind bars. “I can’t remember whether Alex said he did that one or had it contracted out,” said Read. Read is not the only connection to Tsakmakis who has suggested his role in the disappearance. Koeppen’s son Andrei has admitted that Tsakmakis’ daughter came into contact with his mother to “kind of apologise…a year or two back”. After years of contemplation over the case, Andrei Koeppen has connected the disappearance with Tsakmakis as a result of the fact that six escorts arrived at his Cuckoo Restaurant the day after he disappeared. He claims that these women could be the link between his father and Tzakmakis. Although Tzakmakis has been convicted of only two killings – including that of professional runner Bruce Lindsay Walker in 1978 – he is suspected of being involved in eight murders.
