    A woman’s naked body had been found in a farmer’s field in the western Sydney suburb of Prospect, 2km from Anita’s home. Covered in deep bruises, with several broken bones, her throat had been cut, almost severing her head. She had defensive wounds, including sliced fingers, pointing to a desperate fight for life. Her eyes were open, indicating that she’d been conscious when she’d died. It was Anita Cobby.
    The killing sparked one of the biggest manhunts Australia had ever seen. The police worked around the clock. As days went by, the public became increasingly fearful. The state government announced a $100,000 reward.
    Finally, an informant pointed suspicion at troubled John Travers, 18. His friends Michael Murdoch, 19, and Les Murphy, 22, were also arrested. Soon, two other men were hauled in – Les Murphy’s older brothers, Gary, 28, and Mick, 33. With a whole gang under suspicion, there was public outrage – demonstrations outside the police station and calls for the return of the death penalty.

    I find it odd that the so called "leader" was the youngest of the five. Glad they are all stuck in prison till they die.
    my posts are my opinion only

    This is truly what one could call a 'heinous' crime . What that poor girl went through.

    No sympathy whatsoever for any of the perps.
