Arrest made in Death in Braddon case.

By johnboy - 8 August 2011 56

A 17-year-old Canberra youth will face the ACT Childrens Court today (Monday, August 8. ) charged with the murder and aggravated robbery of a 27-year-old man in Braddon on Thursday (August 4).

The young man, from Canberra’s north, was taken into custody late on Saturday night (August 6) after ACT Policing had negotiated his surrender.

Police had executed a search warrant on a Turner residence during the early hours of Saturday morning. During this lengthy search, evidence was located which will form part of the brief of evidence.

A machete and a baseball bat were located which police will allege were the weapons used in the attack.

Police are still searching for a second person in relation to the murder.

Any members of the public who have not yet spoken to police and who may be able to provide information which could assist the investigation are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Looks as if this was purely opportunistic without any motive whatsoever. Seems as if anyone could have been the victim here. Also, I ask myself how a group of men on ice can wander down Northbourne loudly without anyone minding…

I really hope they punish the assholes responsible for this. Make an example out of them.

Making fun of raping children, teens and adults. Classy.

Great work by the ACT Police – early arrest and weapons found.

Now for the Judiciary………………………..and what are the odds of one of these, or all of them, coming up?

1. He was a great bloke
2. He was drunk and didn’t know what he was doing
3. He doesn’t drink………ever.
4. He has never, ever taken drugs
5. He was molested as child
6. He was a good catholic boy just out taking the dogma for a walk when this happened.
7. He was molested as a teen
8. He had that knife, gun, as he found them and was taking them down to hand them in
9. He was molested as an adult
10. Okay, so he took a joint once…………..but he didn’t inhale.
11. Hmmm…….okay, so he molests adults and teens…………..but only once
12. Okay, so there was this other time……………………..maybe more often than that then…..
13. He’s a great bloke though

The teen is being charged with murder AND aggravated robbery. So I do believe that was the initial motive behind the assault and murder. It appears that it was a mugging that went wrong. I thought it may have been a robbery as it appears the police couldn’t initially identify the victim describing him as being between 20-40 of Asian appearance so the guys wallet may have been taken hindering immediate identification.

Hopefully maybe more can now be done to deal with the dangerous users of the drug ice who unfortunately are becoming more and more common amongst the Government housing unit complexes. People on Ice are very dangerous to themselves and to others and are cannot be reasoned with. I have seen the effort of ice on Neighbours when I lived at Northbourne and it is a truly nasty evil drug far more destructive in my opinion to society then the other drugs combined with the exception of alcohol, cigarettes and refined sugar.

I got a Housing Transfer out of Northbourne Flats because my mental health was not good. I hope that the decent tenants that want to move away can now get the priority transfer that they deserve more quickly after this sorry episode.

I walk home that way often. It’s not unusual to have a bunch of iced up cretins have a go at you over, well, nothing at all.

Why would you ask your self this? Has Ice been mentioned by the police? Do you know something about the flat raided or is it just a location thing? I’m not saying your wrong, I just want to know where that thought came from.

From the article, but I guess you’re right, that may well be wrong judgement on behalf of the residents that saw the men. Despite my expressed concerns though, I’m very pleased the police located the culprits as quick as they did. When that happened, I thought that wasn’t possible due what appeared to be a purely opportunistic crime with no motive that could have linked killer(s) and victim.

I wait with anticipation for the courts to once again give not much more than a slap on the wrist to the juvie(s) for this crime – I am sure the perpetrators have a good sob story as to why they were driven to such depths.

Looks like the cops knew what they were doing – good work. Hopefully this scum gets put away for a looooooong time.

Very sad.

Good stuff.

A 17 year old?! What the hell is going on around here?! If he did do it, I hope he is tried as an adult.
