Event Details

Crimes other victims: The professionals who deal with Australias most horrific murders.

For its 12th Law Week event, Sisters in Crime Australia is joining forces with the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre, Victoria University to explore the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things to keep society safe – police officers, homicide detectives, paramedics, doctors, forensic scientists, a trauma cleaner – and an author who writes about murders.

Liz Porter, an award winning forensic science writer, will examine what happens behind the scenes with writer Ruth Wykes and retired homicide detective, Narelle Fraser.

For their new book, Impact: The ripple effect of murder (Clan Destine Press, April 2018), true crime author Ruth Wykes interviewed ten people from behind the headlines, from behind the uniforms, about how the cases involving Maria Korp, the Mornington Monster, Bandali Debs, the Bali Bombing, Black Saturday (and more) affected them personally.

Narelle Fraser was a member of Victoria Police for 27 years, 15 of those as a detective with Homicide, Rape, Sex Crimes, Missing Persons, and Child Exploitation Squads. She specialised in sex offences and child abuse and worked on many high-profile investigations. Narelle was diagnosed with PTSD in 2012 and will share with you what, why and how she missed the signs of stress, and how she lost her career due to ignoring those signs. She has become ‘an accidental’ mental health advocate.

Liz Porter is a freelance journalist best known for her prize-winning books Written on the Skin: An Australian forensic casebook, and Cold Case Files: Past crimes solved by new forensic science (Pan MacMillan, 2007). Her latest book is Crime Scene Asia: When forensic evidence becomes the silent witness (Marshall Cavendish, 2017).
