Screams in the night and bloodstains on the grass resulted in one of the most intense investigations in Ipswich history. The mystery remains unsolved 85 years later. I told a version of the story live on West Bremer Radio.
At around 8pm on Thursday the 16th of September 1937, Patrick Farrell of Goodna in Ipswich, Queensland, noticed a car drive along what was then the country road where he lived. It stopped at the corner a short distance from the railway bridge in a lonely part of Woogaroo Street.
After a short while, Farrell heard a woman screaming. As he approached the car, two men hurriedly jumped inside, started the engine, and swiftly drove away. When Farrell reached the spot, he saw two pools of fresh blood on the ground. He called the police.

Gerald, you did it
The trifecta plus one
Just six weeks old
All because you had enough
You thought you could obliterate them
Like they never existed
The world knows you did it
Your actions indefensible
Ah, but that technicality
It’s saved you, Gerald
Only in this country could a savage such as you escape
Gerald, you did it
You’re actually living the high life
But are you?
How’s your neck feel, Gerald?
From watching your back
Remember your former extended family?
The ones you caused great anguish?
They’re still hurt, Gerald
And they’re angry
Do you know what happens to anger and hurt that festers for decades?
It generates determination
They’re not going away, Gerald
They’re coming for you
And if the one technicality that is your lifeline ever erodes…….

Pamela Faith Roach, who went by her middle name, was born on June 9, 1992. She lived in Walhalla, Oconee County, South Carolina, a small town in the Blue Mountain foothills region with just over 4,200 residents.
When Faith was 11 years old, she and a friend were riding a go-kart on a dirt road when they were struck by a car. Her friend died, but Faith survived, suffering a shattered leg, a traumatic brain injury and other wounds. She was hospitalized on life support and in a coma, and had to undergo surgery to place a metal rod in her leg. She developed a limp as she outgrew the metal rod, leading her to be bullied by others at school.
According to her mother, Cindy Clark Hanvey, the accident changed Faith, turning her from a quiet, shy girl into someone who was outspoken and attention-seeking.
