When he's fine rang, it was his boss who, in full Sing that the body of a young woman had been found and he had to drop everything and drove straight to the crime scene.

One made of God and one. Eight of yellow gold.
Kennedy believed it would help identify the victim because of its rarity, and he placed it in an exhibit back.

Grace had been before her. she started: training that same year at Sydney Hospital and moved to the nurses quarters in Winston Lodge located in Plunkett Street a short distance from the hospital in Central Sydney. It was there
but she met John Cubby. John was three years older than Anita: some ways. They were a contrast, but another one, is. There were similar don't spend his younger in the eastern suburbs of Sydney much about school or is education, but it always got an acceptable great once it was done with, so he didn't know what he wanted to do with his life, but A thing was nowhere near he's right all the time. he spent a year travelling around the struggle with these girlfriend.

a few days later and John took it once he started training don't feel very genuinely love denouncing.

He was accepted. the nurses quarters in Winston Lodge it was there and age twenty three that he first or NATO. It was twenty at the time. John remember, the first time you laid eyes on her. Quite just ringlets of hair everywhere God, she was beautiful- and I thought far too good for me the natives sixth awake is a provisional train, a nursing student and every time I saw her, he believes should never be interested in a guy like him he's done. Asking around about her and found out that she'd been miss western suburbs, with that snippet of information. Jones hopes plummeted even further
He truly believed she would never give a second glance at him, but one day If I started talking and Anita seemed interested in continuing the conversation, John plucked up courage and asked, and out yes and Sundays. Light on John took her to a lebanese restaurants. Sorry, hills called the profit It was only a few kilometers away from the hospital.

Mater should like to spend some time together after work, but an eighth of the corn Shield We had dinner plans and had promised to Should be home after dinner, John didn't protest, and that was the last time he had spoken to her once The phone down John, was deeply worried. He knew as well as most that one slash wasn't to talk to just disappear and not tell anyone wish you was. He went
to the table and told his father and his friend that he was very sorry, but he had to go his father. A complicated relationship with John started, arguing but John explained that NATO is missing and he had to go John First, Dr Forty minutes south to Lily Billy, where he dropped his friend time from He made the one hour and twenty minute journey northwest the black blacktown stopping at a shop to buy Scotch on the way when here. He poured a Scots for himself and forgetting John wasted I taught masking Gary, where they searched for NATO who that coal and if they contacted it was the safe. Perhaps she was hurt Gary didn't have the best relationship with John and didn't take the man of questions calmly. He thought a sand about done with ischemic, doing everything I could to phone. That daughter. While they were talking, grace was pacing around the house. Nervously enjoy in Seinfeld. He was unwelcome. He didn't want to start a fire.
with Father in law, and he didn't want to create a disturbance in an already stressful situation. So he decided to leave the next day. John woke up and did exactly what he had planned to do will wake arranged with a native guy to Shelly Beach, the central coast about one hundred format is north of Sydney. He ceased again. I had rented a half day to celebrate her birthday. John hoped that a NATO would bear the house with Ghana when he got there with some explanation as to where she had been, and then they could spend some quality time away together, like they had planned on the draw the Shelly bade? She was listening to the radio and thinking about a NATO, he, remembered how that would sing along to the songs played on the right, especially to Madonna and cold chisel, it was while he was listening and lost in his thoughts that suddenly the music was interrupted by a news broadcast John. Add the following words: coming out of the speakers that Naked
body of a young woman has been found in a petticoat prospect in Western Sydney. Police are yet to identify. Her John immediately thought of a NATO going with talk of a NATO sitting with his sister Ghana, cutting away at the house in Shelly Badge, Bully, could think of the young, the young woman, found in prospect, petticoat prospect could be her an emergency fine jumped out of the car and quickly called the operator asking to be connected with grace and Gary The wall for the operator to put him through as John, was yelling and wasn't very coherent events.
he was connected and the fine was answered by a boy's. He didn't recognize. It was a woman's voice. Cuz. I totally knew the words you've got to get back to you, John, and he never heard anything else. He jumps back in his car to the username and drive straight to one. Slash. Eight is Jaime blocked him when he arrived, he walked to the back door and suddenly it all became too much. He stopped and said on the stairs and started to cry. When it was done, he stood back up and entered the house in front of him. He found Gary Grace and they desisted Catherine Catherine's, husband and two detectives Before John arrived, the detail You said already shine. The russian wedding ring to an eight his family when Catherine sort. She said it looked like a natives, but this one had rushed on it, so it couldn't be hers. Detective eying Kennedy had to correct her what she thought was rust
was actually blood. Now that John was there, he was shine. The wedding ring as well. He recognized it was definitely unaided. Kennedy separated John from the rest of the natives family and asked him if he would be willing to go to the more towards antiphon. Her body John said. No, he simply couldn't bring himself to say his wife like that Kennedy needed someone to formally identifier and the one who offered was Gryce Sheet Kennedy that she was a nurse and she'd same hundreds of bodies, so she could do it. The Kennedy refused He didn't want to need his mother to see her the only Other option was Gary, who accepted Catherine's husband went with him for support. The detectives DR carried a west made hospital,
play into the morgue. In the moment the shape was removed, Gary's native barcode, and he felt the two detectives were quick to catching him that I told him until he felt strong enough to stand on his own when he was able to speak. He said all wish. I could say it's someone else's daughter, but it's not. Is it after the identification Kennedy, Dr Gary, that came to block town on the way. Kennedy trying to be as honest as possible. He talk I that what they just done was probably the shortest step in the entire investigation. Long guys would white head when I tried to figure out what exactly it to an on top of that the case We get a lot of media attention from the first, Kennedy sore Neda, he knew that due to the brutality of the murder, that would Jenny right. A lot of media Kennedy asked carried to talk to report as much He could tell them who were NATO was in order to solve it.
I see that would need as much help as they could get said. Kennedy. more than open to using the media to inform the public in the hope that it would generate tips Kennedy tell Gary. That is part of the investigation that would need to question everyone who is close to an eight zero. It was simple procedure and Terry said he understood. The first person that was questioned was Joan Colby as soon as maybe got back the black tea on after the identification. He told John to come with him to the station John Wayne not really knowing what to expect. When I got to the station, John was asked to sit in a small interview, room. Kennedy started by asking simple questions for how long illuminated known each other and how long they married. Then he asked about the separation and soon he got the data questions. He asked where John had been on the Sunday. Not Anita, went missing and the day after.
Johnny answered that on Sunday not he was at home and on Monday, nor he was a dinner with his father and his friend and that's when he first heard a NATO is missing. And he asked if the relationship between a nadir in him was rocky they'll, going through a separation. After all,. Johnny and said that they were trying to patch up and get together again. Kennedy pushed the separation with John. Before asking did you kill her John felt hazy? the questions kept coming and it was suddenly not answering them. The next thing I knew who is being pushed into a wall thing. Here's the glittering a NATO is incident, was. An anonymous call had been made to police earlier that day suggesting that detectives looking to John Copy, also The two nurses who Anita went to dinner with the night she disappeared were interviewed, win Bradshaw and Elaine bright. They stated that ever since the separate,
John had been repeatedly calling a NATO at work and he seemed visibly devastated by the fact that they were a pot according to them. He was trying to get it back at all costs. In addition, they stated, there was a chance that NATO might have been saying another nurse from the hospital. A Macintosh Mcintosh Anne had known John for several years, but a diamond I recently met and become friendly with Anita. This information had gotten the attention of detectives. And John was high on the suspect list. but after reading the autopsy report detectives were sure of two things. one of them was that a native murder happened somewhere between Sunday night into the early hours of Monday morning, and the second was that there was probably more than one killer,.
although John Kobe was a suspect and even said, he must have done it while being pressured in that first interview, it didn't look like a crime of passion, so detectives continued to investigate all of the possibilities that, with twenty detectives working the case on that first day of the investigation, They looked at the natives movements on the day she went missing Kate arrived at work at seven. Am she worked? The same She does Lynn Bradshaw, underlined bright, who she off to dinner. With after work that shift ended at three thirty p m afterwards.

These discover that on Sunday night, all the telephones at the station, twelve in total, had been vandalized so NATO couldn't call Gary. The next option was a taxi. Detectives focused on interviewing and checking the records at taxi drivers. I said a NATO would never have taken a taxi Sunday It had been a pleasant. Some annoying said Jerry. No doubt a NATO would have woken detectives, kept their minds open and looked at every single possibility. Wednesday February fifth, one thousand nine hundred and ninety six, became the headline of every newspaper and media outlet in Sydney
All Sydney was shocked to the core by the crime and was the God by every single person who knew her as a living angel. No one had a bad word to say about her.

Still the jury selection took place, and by that afternoon there were twelve jurors, eight men and for women once the jury was.
Stated: the prosecutor gave his opening statement. He picked up a office and said quite there will be no doubt from the evidence given to you that she was brutally and seventy murdered and you would be less than human if you were not horrified about what you will hear in this case,. The first witness called was an aide, his father Gary Lynch. The conduct of the trial started with another surprise. A newspaper article was published the stated that Morocco Murphy was a prison escapee at the time of innate as murder There was a common known fact anyway, but since it was published right after the beginning of the troll and again, the jury, the opportunity to read it. The judge room Show me straw the neutral Started the following Monday: this meant that Gary Lynch would have to testify again and when asked about his feelings on it, he said quote my wife- and I was strong, is wiles. Lions and elephants.
When the trial begin again on Monday March 23rd, one thousand nine hundred and ninety seven, the media focused on another defendant, Gary Menifee and most Play the relationship he had with his lawyer lay Johnson. They Johnson had actually requested a separate trawl, forgetting Murphy, since a client who has never even met the murder. he gave a new on sworn statement stating he left the group before the abduction and murder of a NATO. This new once one statement contradicted what he had an issue: tell the police and being on swift, It meant he couldn't be cross examined on it. Gary Murphy's lawyer Les Johnson said that his initial statement to police had been given under duress as police and fractured his jaw places during the arrest. The fact that lay Jones Goodbye Gary Menifee. It was a woman around his eyes. Age lets her room is in the press that I Involved in a romantic relationship. Lay Johnson had this to say quote always committed no matter what I thought of him.
I have and always will be. People didn't lock that and I think, resented before it caught on fairly. None of the defendants were likeable that had extensive criminal records and would not attractive to look at. In fact, the opposite, while the media focused on Gary Murphy and Delay Johnson inside the courtroom, the defence thing focused on building a defence based on police brutality, while the prosecution had closed the forty weaknesses and based its case on extensive evidence, including sound confessions and a type recorded confession from travel. The defense team had a different agenda. The lawyers knew that, due to the strength of the prosecution case, there is no chance of the bank found innocent. So what I went for was trying to reduce the murder charge to manslaughter, which would mean a much reduced sentence In order to do this, the defense claims that the confession motor can the Murphy brothers would they not of them by police. Given up extreme duress that
and also focused on the point that it was John travellers and only John travellers who used the north. Oh for defendants gave new statements all on swarm, meaning that could Be cross examined. It's got a new versions and different accounts. Reducing their involvement and putting the blame on others. Margo said in his statement, quote all wasn't there. If I was it was for sex and not for murder let's move it cried while giving his new ones? One statement Michael Murdoch admitted he was there. They said he was forced to be. The defence same cross examined police regarding their allegations of brutality in debating confessions, head of the defendants, take. The Kennedy was asked how Mako Murphy had gotten a mark when he's check after the arrest Kennedy answered quite probably when I had my boot on his head, as he lay on the floor.
The fence we're unable to pin brutality on the detectives involved in the case, their action proven to be justified in the circumstances they used to. While the trawl was still running detective Kennedy. entered the courtroom and so full little Easter eggs placed on the defendant's table the only other purse. inside the courtroom was Les Johnson Gary Murphy's lawyer. So he asked who the four Easter eggs before She told him that it was a little gesture for the defendants, since it was a star Kennedy, smash the eggs breaking them into little pieces. He said the eggs were a security risk couldn't happen. He threw them away, but some crumbs were left on the table when the defendants, Can the court they saw the chocolate crumbs and ate them from the table won't be going at each other and in sexually laughed, often throughout the troll, the biggest boy for that same came when the last prosecution witness was coke mistakes travels tribe is on Jennifer.
She had already appeared in the communal proceedings and their John Travis attempted to jump for me, Satan Longeth her, but he was stopped by detectives. There was a fee, Your amongst detectives that that incident would scare her out of appearing at the trial to give evidence, but it didn't Jennifer appeared and became the star witness Testimony she spoke about her visit to John Travellers and the tight recordings replied which clearly pointed to all for defendants. Bang guilty. closing arguments were given on Tuesday June ninth nineteen. Ninety seven you left the court at lunch time to reach a verdict. Most observers thought the verdict would be reached within minutes, but. no one pay him. There was still nothing journal today, Cruz, detectives, friends, relatives and crowds of onlookers all left for home, the jury, taken to a nearby motel.
When Gary and grace linked arrived home that night, they didn't know what to think. They really believed that the deliberations in the jury room would be fast and they would fall in the fog men guilty without a doubt, but now There were worried and what the very good bye they couldn't sleep at night. John Kobe didn't attend the trial. With changing. His name had showed his head to become unrecognizable. He kept I a recurring dream that the courtroom wearing a motorcycle helmet and carrying two guns with them. He killed all four, the men that killed a NATO. The next morning, Wednesday June tenth nineteen, eighty seven at ten twenty. I am the jury reached the verdict, Wesley Murphy, Gary Murphy, Mako, Murphy and Marco Murdoch we're all found guilty. Everyone inside the courtroom saying to let out a saw of her life, many cried
Including Gary and Grace Lynch journalists, Into the door to get their stories in. Tuesday June 16th. One thousand nine hundred and ninety seven Travers Murdock into the Murphy brothers in front of the judge, has already sentenced to them. Justice Maxwell quote: The crown firstly alleged that, after having assaulted and robbed the deceased and sexually assaulted her, there were conscious of the fact that she could recognize them and I therefore great amongst themselves that she should be killed. All the others knew that Travis was on with a north, completed the Travis would use the north or more use than off shoes, lying face down when the prisoner inflicted the fatal wines, The medical evidence established that she was both alive and conscious before the wounds were inflicted one in that establish precisely the length of time that she was subjected to the attacks, giving rise to the injuries as described but
The open on the evidence to conclude that it was upwards of at least an hour and a half. There is no doubt that, apart from the humiliation, degradation and terror inflicted upon this young woman, she was the victim of a prolonged and sadistic physical and sexual assault. What animals are given to pack a and sultan killings? How about I do so for the purpose of survival and not as a result of the degrading animal passion not are these prisoners they assaulted in a pack for the purpose of satisfying their lost and killed For the prevention of identification, indeed Frequently they were observed to be laughing one with the other and frequently it would seem to be snickering behind their hands the crime is exacerbated by the fact that the victim almost certainly was made aware in the end of her pending death. This was calculating killing gun in cold blood. Therefore, I impose the following sentences: John Raymond Travers
lack of James Murdoch play Joseph Murphy, Patrick Murphy, and Gary Stephen Murphy, First Cannon murder. I sentence you to penal servitude for life. the papers were and never to be released into. Indeed, I called courtroom clock loudly. Not long after the trawl detectives, Kennedy Rosetta and around all received commendations from police. Commissioner John Avery for their work on the case from that moment on the Unita Cobby case was seen as one of the best conduct investigations in a struggle. The fact that the detectives never stop searching even when there was no evidence and John Cobby had told them he did it made them stand out the entire investigation took twenty two days and alone these three detectives were the ones who got commendations, they all said
but the commendation should be given to the entire team, since every person that was part of the task force gave everything they had all in all, though stated that the biggest wish was that day and being a crime to begin with, to give commendations for. After the trial, Travers Murdoch and the Murphy brothers filling out with one another, although set up reminder loyal to Travis.
