Bushrangers the Kenniff Brothers and Deadly Grandmother Caroline Grills...

Paddy and Jimmy Kenniff were cattle-duffers, pony-pinchers and general rabble rousers. They were the last of the great Australian bushrangers. Roaming the land fully armed and living in caves in country Queensland, in the early 1900s. They would come undone due to the brutal murders of an innocent copper, Constable George Doyle, and a bullying station manager, Albert Dahlke. The story of the Kenniff brothers is one of adventure and tragedy as well as being an intriguing murder mystery.

In Sydney in the late 1940’s, a short, bespectacled, great-grandmother named Caroline Grills became an unlikely serial killer. Caroline loved making cakes, biscuits and cups of tea for her relatives and especially loved seeming like an angel by helping them when they were ill…from the thallium she was poisoning them with.
