The abduction, rape and murder of 26-year-old nurse Anita Cobby in the Western Sydney suburb of Blacktown in February 1986 shocked hardened detectives, the wider community and ultimately the entire nation. That five young men from adjoining suburbs were responsible – local thieves and hoods with nothing to fear or lose – horrified the entire nation. Quickly captured, they were found guilty of their crimes and jailed for life, their papers marked ‘never to be released’.
