Shortly after noon on 2 July 1970, tourists spotted a smashed motor car balancing precariously on a small ledge below the cliff tops of Loch Ard Gorge in southwestern Victoria. With only a fewcentimetres of crumbling limestone preventing the carfrom falling into the tumultuous seas below, thetourists expected it to be lost at any moment. A search and rescue worker scaled the sheer cliff to examine the car in the fading light. Among the debris a loaded rifle was found. But even more sinister was thesmell of death emanating from the wreck. Then thesearch was abandoned for the night. Hundreds of kilometres away in suburbanMelbourne, police had traced the car's registration to a triple fronted brick house, the home of the Crawford family. Police broke into the empty house and what they found sparked off one of the biggest manhunts the state had ever seen, Theresa Crawford and her three children lost their lives on that cold July day and the case became one of the most intriguing murder mysteries in the modern history of Victoria. Greg Fogarty has meticulously pieced together the events surrounding the grisly family murder tracing old coronial documents and interviewing key figures long ago caught up in the tragedy. For many, the crime is just as fresh in their minds as it was when it happened over thirty years ago.; 230 x 150mm; xii, 132 pages Very Good+
