Spree Killer Carl Brown and the Murder of Joseph Durrant...

51 year old Carl Robert Brown was a High School teacher who refused to seek help for his deteriorating mental health. After being put on forced leave to seek psychiatric counselling, he massacred eight people in a Miami, Florida welding shop and headed towards the school, loaded with guns and ammo.

In 2007, a Western Sydney Australia Day party went horribly wrong for Joseph Durrant after an argument with his short-tempered neighbour Katrina Whitmore got stabby. But who inflicted the fatal wound and was it really just about some barking dogs?
