Ten years after the event, and this “event” is back in the headlines.
On the 14th July 2001, Peter Falconio and his girlfriend Joanne Lees, while driving their Volkswagen Kombi on the Stuart Highway near Alice Springs, were stopped by a man in the road.
At this man’s request Falconio got out of the van to check the vans exhaust, and has never been seen since.
Joanne Lees has stated that she was then tied up, but managed to escape later.
Bradley John Murdoch was convicted of his murder on 13 December 2005.
Did Bradley John Murdoch really kill Peter Falconio ?
Is Peter Falconio still alive ?
The major evidence against Murdoch was:
- His blood was matched by DNA to bloodstains on Joanne Lees’ t-shirt.
- His blood was found on the gearstick of their car.
- His DNA was found on the tape used to tie the wrists of Joanne Lees.
The current evidence to prove Murdoch Innocent:
- Four people are being quoted, by Andrew Fraser, (Murdoch’s current lawyer) as seeing someone that looked like Peter Falconio, AFTER, the date he went missing.
Bradley John Murdoch (Convicted Murdered)
- 1980 convicted of causing death by dangerous driving.
- 1995 convicted of shooting at people at a football match in Western Australia.
- 2002 arrested in South Australia and charged with a rape offence, but was acquitted partly for the reason that the woman, a former prostitute, did not immediately go to the police. wwwsmh.com.au
- A self confessed drug runner.
Andrew Fraser, Murdochs current lawyer
- 2001 jailed for 7 years for importing $2.7 million worth of Cocaine.
- Author of the books: Killing Time: Court in the Middle, Killing Time – Lunatic Soup and Snouts in the Trough.
Peter Falconio (the victim)
- The Victim with no real reason to voluntarily go missing.
- Still single and now living a quiet life in the UK.
- Author of the book: No Turning Back
I see no real reason for some people to try to accuse this current lawyer of trying to resurrect this story so he can sell more books. It isn’t as if he is doing a book on Peter Falconio or Bradley John Murdoch.
