Behind the Crime 2017 presents: The Acid Murder

The police and Crown prosecutor who solved The Acid Murder case will tell the story of how they brought the offender to justice as part of the Behind The Crime series of talks at James Cook University.

Arresting Officer Detective Sergeant Brad McLeish, Sergeant Lesley Walker from Forensics and Senior Crown Prosecutor Nigel Rees will discuss their roles in the case on Thursday 30 March at the Main Lecture Theatre in The Cairns Institute.

The cost is $20 or $15 for JCU Alumni, current staff and students. Nibbles and refreshments will be served from 6pm. The lecture is at 6.30-8.30pm. Please register online at
