Lurid details on the Downer double murder

By johnboy - 24 July 2009 26

No subject on RiotACT has ever quite brought the nutters out in quite such numbers as last year’s double murder in Downer of Struan Bolas, 48, and Julie Franko (aka Tattersall), 35.

Yesterday in court the lurid and gory details of the crime scene were trotted out.

I don’t propose to reproduce them here. But if you’re into that kind of thing the Canberra Times and ABC both have the details.

What’s Your opinion?

I understand they are still investigating the will and wont be able to sell the house until it is finalised. As a resident of the said street it can not be soon enough until that house is on the market. At least the traffic has slowed down quite considerably since.

A really sad state of affairs, and just hope that this trial will eventually give closure to the families concerned.

Any chance of that place going on the market? Could be a cheap way to secure a cheap property in the inner-north?

Your love life has been posted about on here before, I’m sure…

Now back on topic please, that is not my love life.

And if any media outlet thought my love life was that interesting then good luck to them.

Sorry, got the name wrong, that should be Johnboy’s love life…

Johnno,

I suppose I was thinking in terms of a distinction between what may be of interest to the public, like the lurid details of Johhno’s love life, and what are matters of public interest in that they might contibute to public debate about policy issues on dealing with crime.

I can’t see why these lurid details have been published.

They don’t seem to add anything of public interest.

The CSI nerds will be going crazy like a coconut.
