Bloody Murder 65 - Dorothea Kraft and The Berrima Axe Murderer John Lynch

April 16, 2018

Dorothea Kraft and The Berrima Axe Murderer John Lynch...

Widow Dorothea Kraft had a tough time trying to raise her daughter on a failing farm in the early 1900's in South Africa. After relying on the kindness of strangers backfired horribly and threatened to leave her homeless she felt she had no choice but to turn to murder.

John Lynch, nasty convict, shitfull farmer, wannabe robber was Australia’s first and possibly worst serial killer. One hundred and fifty years before the term serial killer was even a thing, he wandered the Berrima district murdering people until he finally met his dangly end at the gallows at the old Berrima Gaol.

Bloody Murder 64 - Cleophus Prince Jr and Bold Jack Donohue

April 9, 2018

Cleophus Prince Jr and Bold Jack Donohue...

Cleophus Prince Jr. raped and killed 6 women in San Diego in 1990. Most of the attacks took place in or around the apartment complex in Clairemont where he and his girlfriend lived. He would stalk the women - usually after seeing them at the gym, break in to their homes during the day and attack them when they were showering with knives from their own kitchens.. 

Bold Jack Donohue was a prancing dandy Irish Bushranger who terrified country New South Wales in the 1830's. His bravado and daring after absconding from his convict chains and going bush earned him sympathies amongst settlers, who protected him. But his defiance of the law did not impress authorities and made him a hunted man.

Bloody Murder 60 - Gary Evans and Malcolm Clarke

March 19, 2018

Gary Evans and Malcolm Clarke...

Gary Charles Evans was a serial killer, escape artist and burglar who specialised in stealing antique furniture and jewellery. His accomplices on the robberies were his closest friends but they had a nasty habit of "going to California" never to be seen again.

For over twenty years police believed the death of six year old Bonny Clarke was committed by her mother Marion. It took the dogged determination of a dedicated detective, a re-interpretation of forensic evidence and a controversial sting to finally catch the real killer.

March 12, 2018

The Maurizio Gucci Murder and The Kane Brothers...

When former head of the Gucci fashion empire, Maurizio Gucci was gunned down  on a spring morning in 1997, suspicions initially fell on his volatile and litigious family whom he'd out manoeuvred to get control of the company. However his bitter and dramatic ex-wife Patrizia was also a suspect. She and her personal psychic were known to delve into the black arts and it was no secret she wanted Maurizio dead. 

The Three Kane brothers, Les, Brian, and Ray were all career criminals. They specialised in extortion and armed robbery on the grimy streets of Melbourne in the 60s, 70s and early 80s. One day the ratbag brothers took it too far when they tried to take on Great Bookie Robber Ray 'Chuck” Bennett.

Bloody Murder 58 - Rosie Batty Special Edition

March 5, 2018

Rosie Batty Special Edition...

Rosie Batty never thought she'd have children. The death of her mother when she was 6 years old left her feeling traumatised and hesitant to be close to people. Having her son Luke changed everything for the better, but her relationship with his father Greg Anderson, turned violent and very dangerous.
 
What ensued was a decade of terrifying family violence and failure after failure by the authorities in Australia who were meant to be protecting them from it. It took the ultimate tragedy and an unthinkable amount of courage and grace to shine a light on the epidemic of family violence in this country, and finally force the authorities to make changes to how these issues are handled. 

 

If you would like to know more of Rosie's story, read her book “ A Mother Story”. It really is quite remarkable. Here's a link

After accepting her “Australian of the Year Award” in 2015. Rosie made an amazing speech. Here's a link to a video.

Bloody Murder 55 - Moses Sithole, Raymond Brooks and Gary Plauche

February 19, 2018

Moses Sithole, Raymond Brooks and Gary Plauche...

Moses Sithole became South Africa's worst serial killer after a year long rape and murder spree that claimed the lives of 38 innocent victims. He preyed on his victims attempts to support their families by offering them jobs in a humanitarian foundation that didn't exist, before torturing and murdering them in broad daylight. The crimes were nicknamed the 'ABC Murders' because they began in Atteridgeville, continued in Boksburg and ended in Cleveland.

This story was a patron request for Libby Spicer.

Raymond Brooks pleaded guilty to sexually abusing “Eva” when she was a little girl and was sentenced to five years, but he only served 27 months. In the eyes of Eva's father, Brooks' punishment was woefully inadequate. Gary Plauche's son Jody was kidnapped and taken across state lines where he was also abused. These two fathers both formed plans for cold revenge, but after carrying out their vengeance, they would end up with two completely different outcomes.

Be sure to check Jody Plauche's website, he does some fantastic work. www.jodyplauche.net
