Arrest made in relation to the murder of Nannette Porritt

By Big Al 27 October 2006 44

A 22-year-old Canberra man has been arrested for the murder of 50-year-old Nannette Porritt.

Ms Porritt was found dead in her house on December 21 last year.

The ABC is reporting that an arrest has been made. ACT Police have indicated that the man will brought before the ACT Magistrates Court later this morning.

As I recall, at one time her son was considered a ‘person of interest’ to investigators.

Yep, that’s certainly a rock-solid story – guaranteed to get him off.

Internet chat room predator victim?

Apparently he whined about his parents and made ‘kill them’ comments in an internet chat room. God knows what crank tuned in on this and traveled here to use him as the fall guy.

so we should give them a pat on the bum and send them on their way?

most murders are committed due to a person snapping. often the person has no history of violence. think of all the wives who have used kitchen knives to kill husbands.

and when these people leave prison they rarely committ crimes again.

“…minor bicycle misdemenour” – you mean he was riding a recumbent!

Thumper 1:50 pm 27 Oct 06

Well, he did take off to QLD previously and was only picked up after a minor bicycle misdemenour.

It wasn’t that they arrested him as much as the arrest implies that he may have committed the gruesome crime – That is what I think is unfortunate (or in other words – completly f*cked)
