Later this month Crime Investigation Australia will revisit the attack and murder of several gay men during the 1980s and 90s in the world premiere of Blood Sport – The Bondi Gay Murders.
The deaths of three innocent men were later discovered to be part of a much wider wave of violent hate crimes by gangs of youths roaming Sydney’s inner suburbs.
Once again CIA features re-enactments and interviews with key figures, including the cold case investigating policeman as well as family and friends of the murder victims.
During separate attacks, three innocent men were brutally bashed and thrown to their deaths from a cliff top near Bondi Beach. Two of these deaths, however, were not considered to be murders at the time.
Among the victims was Wollongong television newsreader, Ross Warren, a gay man who disappeared while visiting friends in Sydney in 1989.
At first, Ross Warren’s case was left open by police who regarded it as a “probable accident”. But his mother conducted a long campaign to have her son’s disappearance finalised.
CIA: Blood Sport – The Bondi Gay Murders airs on Thursday, March 26 at 7:30pm.
