Bowraville murders: Police say one word blocking any retrial

It was about 5am when Michael Scafidi and Greg Innes spotted a body, slack and motionless, in the middle of the road. Their truck lurched to a stop on a left-hand bend, metres from what looked like a teenage Aboriginal boy. He was, Mr Scafidi said, lying like a chalk outline “in one of those cop shows”.

“He had his sloppy joe tied around his waist, he didn’t have much facial hair. He looked like he was either asleep, drunk or dead.”

Twenty-three years on, that odd encounter on a remote road in northern NSW holds what some say is the key to convicting an alleged serial killer.
