Australian Story: Feb 24

On Monday Australian Story concludes the story of a man who was the only witness to two deaths.

First, he shot dead his wife in what he told police was a tragic accident.

He said he was looking for a snake in his garage on a chilly night in Toowoomba when his gun accidently discharged.

Six years later, almost to the day, the truck he was driving struck and killed a cyclist on a lonely stretch of highway. He was convicted of dangerous driving causing death.

Now, a retired coroner, who has watched these cases unfold from the sidelines, is asking why the man has never had to face charges relating to the death of his wife.
