Summary
How a famous cold case, a murderous fire and a quest for justice finally brought down one of Australia's worst killers. '...he is hard to frighten... he is very methodical... he does not like sunlight because he is very fair-skinned... he has the tattoo of St George and the Dragon...' - Witness statement given to the Crime Intelligence Unit, Brisbane, 1974. In 2017, Vincent O'Dempsey, along with his accomplice Garry Dubois, were sentenced to life in prison for the brutal murders of Barbara McCulkin and her two young daughters. It took over 40 years to bring them to justice. Feared for decades by criminals and police alike, Vincent O'Dempsey associated with convicted underworld figures behind major crimes such as the deadly Whiskey Au Go Go nightclub firebombing and was also linked to a string of haunting cold cases. Award-winning investigative journalist Matthew Condon has interviewed dozens of ex-cons, police and witnesses to put together a compelling picture of the calculating killer who spent his life evading the law before he was finally brought to justice. The Night Dragon shines a light on a chilling chapter of Australia's criminal past and the devastating legacy left in its wake
