The Murders of Sophie Lionnet and Senior Constable David Rixon...

21 year old Sophie Lionnet was a shy and reserved  French woman working as a nanny in the UK. Her delusional employer Sabrina Kouider, believed Sophie was colluding with her ex Mark Walton, a founding member of Irish boyband Boyzone, to drug and sexually assault her family, so they tortured her to death.

On an overcast morning in March 2003, Senior Constable David Rixon pulled over ice addicted knucklehead Michael Allen Jacobs for a random breath test. Already disqualified from driving, Jacobs decided to shoot his way out of the traffic infringement rather than face a hefty fine.
