Fifty years ago on 8 March 1973 Brisbane, Queensland’s worst mass murder took place in well-known Fortitude Valley, at the time Australia’s worst act of mass-murder – eclipsed only by Martin Bryant’s terrible act at Port Arthur in Tasmania. It stunned the entire nation and the crime has haunted Brisbane for half a century. In this episode Murder Trails author and publisher Jack Sim, and special guest Paul Tully, discuss the crime itself, what exactly happened, and the background of those who died.
