A murder conviction looms as Scott Macdougal admits killings

By johnboy 6 October 2010 26

The ABC reports that the accused in the Downer Murders Scott Alexander McDougall has admitted he killed Struan Bolas, 48, and Julie Franco (aka Julie Tattersall), 35.

He has also admitted to committing the acts that caused their deaths with a wooden handled meat cleaver found inside the home.

He took the clothes he was wearing and dumped some of them in a rubbish bin.

McDougall also deliberately set fire to the residence, stuffing paper in a toaster and leaving it on hot plates that were later turned on.

Justice Gray is hearing the trial without a jury.

There will never be a shortage of murders. I guess it seems like there will be even less of a shortage of people to gossip about them on blog sites. Albeit a site I am fond of.

What’s the point of hanging around here if you’re not going to gossip about murderers?

Well was I right or was I right, there you go all you doubters, and it has made National News.
First murder charge in 13 years and never a double murder charge in the ACT, this has made history.
Judge Gray will be retiring in October when he turns 70, he will be going out with a double barrel BANG!
