When South Australia Police released a plea asking for assistance to locate wanted woman, Khe Sanh Cox, the Internet had a field day. 

SAPOL’s Facebook post asking for information has returned more than 27,000 comments – a large majority being Cold Chisel references.

The 28-year-old is wanted for a number of serious offences and breach of bail after she removed a home detention bracelet earlier this month.

Police are asking for the assistance of the public to locate wanted woman, Khe Sanh Cox.

As many know, ‘Khe Sanh’ is also the name of a hit song by Cold Chisel about a Vietnam War veteran.

The SA Police is well aware of the hit song and already covered their advice stating in their tweet “She is no Choir Girl – we’ve already searched Bow River & the Star Hotel.”

On Twitter, one commented, “Don’t count those locations out because the first thing you know she’ll be back in Bow River again.”


“I heard she is somewhere between the ocean to the silver city,” another person commented.

No but, this is a serious matter. Police are asking for assistance for the search for Khe Sanh, please call SA Police on 131 444.

There are rumours she might be hopping on that last plane out of Sydney…
