Police release video of one of Australia's most wanted men giving wedding speech

Police have released decade-old footage of one of Australia’s most wanted men so members of the public can observe his mannerisms and hear his voice.

Victoria Police believe Jonathan Dick hiding in plain sight, 18 months after his brother was murdered with a sword in a shopping centre carpark.

A $100,000 reward is being offered for any information.

In 2007, Dick gave a heartfelt speech at a friend’s wedding, but these happy memories are now being used by detectives to catch the fugitive.

“It’s just an amazing thing, they’ve been together since they were 14 or 15 years old,” Dick can be heard saying in the video.

“I can’t imagine another two people who match as much as you two do, so congratulations.”  

Victoria Police inspector Tim Day said: “We believe he is currently in the community.”

“People will be seeing him and hearing him and possibly working with him.”

Police are specifically appealing to members of the construction industry to keep an eye out.

“We know that Jonathan is a skilled labourer and he may be doing some cash-in-hand work,” Insp Day said.

Dick has been on the run for 18 months.

He is wanted for the February 2017 murder of his brother David, who was killed with a sword in a lift at Westfield Doncaster.

This August, he randomly attacked a childhood friend with a hammer at Keilor.

There have been no confirmed sightings of him since.

In vision from the Keilor attack, Dick appears clean -shaven, has not lost any weight and is wearing clean clothes.

Based on that, police believe he has access to laundry facilities and regular accommodation.

“We believe Jonathan is seeking shelter somewhere; it may be a hostel or a boarding house, as opposed to sleeping rough,” Insp Day  said.

People might also recognise him by his tattoos – the Wolverine on his thigh and Incredible Hulk on his calf.

Police hope photos of what he may look like now – along with the $100,000 reward – will encourage more people to look out for him.
