To be fair he may have been after Panadene Forte!

I love the ‘demanded pain medication’ bit. I have images in my head of the victim saying “you think that hurts, try this…” before swinging the baseball bat.

It sounds very domestic, rather than a random crime.

Unless of course, the offender knew the victim, and knew the victim had something stronger on-hand, in which case this should be a fairly open-and-shut case, right?

Does the member for O’Connor have a son or grandson who lives around here?
