The ABC’s got a story on a 37 year old unemployed Dickson man fronting the Magistrates court after losing his cool:
Police say when the accused’s father warned his son that he may lose custody, he said he would bury his brother and daughter.
They told the court they discovered a hole in the accused’s backyard which could accommodate a small child.
The man’s lawyer says the hole is part of a landscaping project but police say it is located in the centre of the yard and is not consistent with such a project.

So lessons learned. Dig the hole closer to the fence. Ideally where you’re about to concrete over and build a deck one imagines.
(Possibly even better to not be making death threats, or digging holes, at all)
