Police at the Whiskey Au Go Go after the bombing
True crime author, Tony Reeves addressed a packed meeting of West End’s 17 Group last week with new evidence in the Whiskey Au Go Go fire bombing. The 1973 fire bombing murdered 15 people and Mr Reeve’s new evidence implicates police, clears John Andrew Stuart who died in Boggo Rd jail while serving time for the crime and identifies a person of interest.
The manuscript is under consideration by the Queensland University Press and pending legal clearance may be released in time for Christmas.
Due to the reclassification of the Fitzgerald Inquiry documents last year, much of the evidence in this case has been locked up for another 65 years.
Readers interested in more information should let the Westender know via the comments form below as it may be possible to provide extracts of the book once a publishing deal is in place.
