Summary
An initiative of the Whitlam Government, the so called 'helping court' opened its doors in January 1976. But despite the high idealism of the court's creators, they failed to factor in one universal truth: that in a marital tug of war, one side would always feel more embittered than the other. Despite the brazen enormity of the shootings and bombings in Sydney from 1980 attacks that hit at the very heart of the judicial system and a prime suspect publicly named by the Coroner, the police investigation failed to culminate in an arrest and after three decades stalled to a benign 'review' status. Following a tip off from a possible witness, the Channel 7 Sunday Night program determined to investigate this cold case. Award winning true crime writer and investigative journalist Debi Marshall was part of the team who worked this story
