Dead Centre: Robin Bowles
Whitehorse Manningham Libraries
When British tourist Peter Falconio vanished one night in the heart of the outback in 2001, it made front page news around the world, igniting a massive police hunt and unprecedented media attention. His girlfriend, Joanne Lees, was attacked and abducted that same night but escaped, hiding in the desert until she was picked up by a passing driver. Thirteen months later Bradley Murdoch, a drifter arrested for an unrelated crime in South Australia, was charged with Peter’s murder and the attack on Joanne. In Dead Centre, true crime expert Robin Bowles strips bare the story behind the headlines, to get to the heart of what happened to Peter Falconio.
