It is fair to say that the death of one teenage boy is a tragedy, it’s heartbreaking and a tremendous loss for all family and friends involvedNow imagine the loss of another teenage boyWhat if the second young man was an innocent party in a sick revenge attack? Would it make it a right and just death, one boy for another for the families involved? Would this death now create balance? Is it a fair trade, a life for a life, an eye for an eye.

January 20th 2017 started out just like any other day. A warm summer day, the city of Melbourne was filled with workers, shoppers and tourists. No one knew that this day would be any different.

S1: Margaret and Paul's Story
35:45

What do you think of when you think of your parents? Providers, protectors, best friend, disciplinarian, supporter, your guidance? These are typical words that would arise when asked that question. But what happens when this is not the response you have when you think of your parents? What if when you think of your parents you think words like manipulative, unkind, greedy or selfish whether these things are true or not. What would happen if your thoughts were blacker and darker than this, what if thoughts turned to murder?

S1: Tara's Story
39:32

Australia is a place where men and women have equal rights in the eyes of the law. Our strict gun laws are the envy of many nations where shooting deaths are rampant and our laid back life style is admired far and wide. But what lurks beneath the veneer of our nations friendly smile and sparkling beaches is something far more sinister. Research shows that a woman is killed by her ex or current partner almost every single week in Australia. With the end of every year comes the end of a grim annual tally of dead women in. It’s a tally of epidemic proportions.

S1: The Story of Jody Harris
27:31

What makes a criminal? What turns someone from the naïve innocent child into a thrill seeking, money hungry criminal? Is it the home they come from? Or maybe something deep inside them? Could it be a mixture of both? Or something different altogether? It’s something that fascinates us all and this story and its main character will do just that.

S1: Joshua's Story
24:39

Why wouldn’t you trust your friends?  Your best mate?  A family friend you have known basically your entire life? It really doesn’t seem to matter does it? How long you have known a person, or how close you may be. The bad man is out there maybe down the dark alley or a seemingly empty park. But why would you need to fear that if you have the people closest to you right by your side?   Because it seems any one can hurt you.

S1: Louise's Story
26:38

Louise O'Brien was 18 years old. She was a slight, strawberry blonde girl with her whole future ahead of her. She had plans. A sweet girl, a good friend, who deserved much, much better than the hand she was dealt. She wanted a life far better than the one she found herself in. She wanted a home where she felt safe, and loved. A home nothing like the nightmare she was unable to just wake up from.

There are different types of ways to lose a loved one. Death being the most final. But have you ever had a person you love, that you hold dearly, just walk out of the door never to return? Dan was a kind, empathetic young man, tall with a broad smile. He had a bright future ahead of him but, he couldn't see that. He was 24, with the weight of the world on his shoulders.

Bonus Episode: William's Story
20:54

Domestic violence remains the leading type of violence in Australia. At least 41 per cent of murders are a result of domestic violence. Most of those involve people killing their intimate partners, with 79 per cent of those victim’s women, and 21 per cent of them, men. And in this episode, we are going to talk about just one man in that 21 per cent.

Robert Whitwell was 81. He was a grandfather and a well liked and respected man. Silver hair, glasses, and a warm and friendly smile. He was described as the perfect neighbour, a lovely man and a real gentleman. His neighbours knocked on Roberts door one day when he didn’t collect his morning paper, but there was no answer. They tried the handle and realised … it was unlocked. That is when they found him.

This is the story of the fate of Sanaya Sahib, only 15 months old. In a case as horrendous as a child murder, nobody wants to imagine that there is nothing a loving parent could do to protect their child against someone who wishes harm to them. None of us want to think we live with the reality where in one moment we could lose everything. We demand more rhyme and reason to the world than that. We demand a back story.

This is Sanaya’s Story.
