Murdoch jailed for murder

Australian mechanic Bradley Murdoch has been jailed for life for the murder of British backpacker Peter Falconio.
He has not been sentenced to death, because in Australia, as in most democracies, the death penalty no longer exists. Are there more murders in Australia than in the USA? Somehow I doubt it.

"We wish that we could find Peter - we don't get any closure until we find Peter," he added.
For his parents closure doesn't depend on revenge. What they need is to say goodbye to their son. My father died when I was 13. I'm glad my mum insisted on taking me back to the UK for his funeral. That way I could say goodbye.
