  • This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 


    Dr. Hamish Mckenzie is the Detective Superintendent of the Western Australia Sex Crimes Division. That means he's the boss.


    As you're about to hear, Sex Crimes is a very challenging area of policing, and Western Australia is the largest single policing jurisdiction in the world.


    Policing, like everything else, is done differently in WA. But according to Hamish McKenzie, child sexual assault is the one area of law enforcement where egos really do take a backseat to results.


    He joins us on Australian True Crime, which serving officers rarely do. So we're very grateful to talk about his work and how we can continue to work together in child protection.

    Unlike most of us, Julie DiBella found a serial killer lurking in hers.


    Julie has spent the last couple of years researching the crimes of her great great grandfather, Robert Francis Burns, who has gone down in the histroy books as potentially Australia's first serial killer.


    Julie is writing a book about her infamous ancestor, and she joins us on Australian True Crime today to tell us what she's discovered so far.


    We will keep you updated once Julie's book on Robert Francis Burns is released. Click here to purchase her previous book on 1970s Sharpie culture: Rage - A Sharpie's Journal

    Scott Keighran is a published poet.


    If you Google him, though, you're more likely to find him described as an associate of the Rebels Motorcycle Club, an arsonist, a kidnapper, a home invader, and an attempted murderer.


    Scott is well aware that his rap sheet is nothing short of terrifying. He has hurt and traumatized a lot of people.


    However, in 2016, when an attempt to intimidate went wrong, he ended up paying a very high price himself.

  • This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 


    CW: This episode contains discussions of child sexual assault.


    Retired Detective Sergeant John Breda narrowly escaped being murdered by an alleged child sex offender, Nick Newman, on January 26th, 2018.


    It is alleged that Nick Newman was 26 when he entered a sexual relationship with a 14 year old relative of his ex wife. After the child reported Newman to the police, he had made threats of "wanting to hunt her down" as well as issuing death threats to his ex-wife and family.


    He was wanted by the police on the day Breda and his team were informed of his whereabouts in a Maroubra pub.


    The altercation between Breda and Newman didn't turn out well for either of them, but there's only one of them still around to tell the tale.


    For reasons that will become apparent in this episode, John Breda is an enthusiastic advocate for blood donation. Please click this link to learn more about how you can contribute to blood donation.

    Sarah's grandfather murdered her grandmother and hid her under the floorboards.


    This event has long since fallen from the news, but she joins us to share the many ways it has affected and still affects her family.


    Sarah is a professional woman. She's married with young children, and she takes great pride in the ordered nature of her life.


    It's a far cry from the chaos left behind for her father's generation by her grandparents, whose marriage came to a violent end in the 1950s.


    Sarah's peaceful existence has required a lot of effort on her part. The family continues to be impacted by the chaos, dysfunction, and trauma from the gruesome

    family headline of three-quarters of a century ago.

  • Infamous corrupt NSW police officer, Roger Rogerson, has died this week at the age of 83 from suffering a brain aneurism.


    Rogerson was serving a life sentence for the murder of a 20 year old Jamie Gao. His conviction for that murder was somewhat ironic, given he proudly boasted of killing three drug dealers during his police career and gotten away with it.


    The true extent of Rogerson's corruption and criminal activities may now never be fully uncovered.


    Ray Mooney, an author, playwright and former inmate of Pentridge Prison, joins us this episode to provide valuable insights into Rogerson's notorious legacy.

  • Our guest today is Angie. She was a sex worker and drug user for some years and she sustained a brain injury through an unsuccessful suicide attempt, which accounts for her struggle to think of words sometimes.


    Angie is one of a kind, as is her wife, Luna, who sat beside her during this recording. And you may hear her chime in from time to time.


    We've spoken to sex workers before, but never this explicitly. And when I say explicit, I don't mean sexy. I mean, we're going to be talking about violence and sexual violence in a pretty graphic way at times. It's even going to get gynecological. So if that's something that you are not comfortable with, then this one might not be for you.

  • On this week of Australian True Crime, we are playing an episode from one of our favourite true crime podcasts, Wanted.


    Wanted is a show where host Jack Laurence sits down and interviews men and women from around the world who have been or who are currently wanted by authorities.


    This episode is part one of a three part series on David McMillan. To listen to parts two and three, as well as all other episodes, go check out Wanted, wherever you get your podcasts.


    Escaping Thai Prison P1 - David McMillan show notes:


    David McMillan has lead a life that is almost unbelievable, its like something out of a Hollywood crime thriller.


    Born in the UK to Australian parents David would travel back and forth between the two countries a few times until at the age of 10 his parents divorced and he, his sister and mother made the permanent move to Melbourne.


    David was always different as a kid, he was expelled from school for trying to make a batch of LSD, a sign of things to come?


    At eighteen David got a job at the city cinema and by chance would meet some retired safe crackers, safe crackers who were looking to invest their money in the drug business. With no one that could source it for them David jumped in head first and thus changing the course of his entire life.


    David made millions of dollars, before an Australian task force swooped and he would spend 10 years in maximum security prison in Victoria. Once he was out he decided he was done with Australia and left for the UK, with a stop off in Thailand, a decision that would see him arrested again and facing the death penalty.


    Just two weeks before he was to be killed by firing squad David did something that no western has ever achieved, he escaped.
