“I describe him as the first person I have ever met who did not have reflective eyes. I know that sounds like a strange thing to say, but I stand by it,” said Greg Fisher of his once cellmate, murderer John Travers.
The kidnap, murder and rape perpetrated by Travers and four others in 1986 was so horrific Fisher found himself terrified. “I wasn’t prepared to shut my eyes,” he admitted to Mamamia.
Anita Cobby was walking home from Blacktown railway station in Sydney after dining out with colleagues in Surry Hills when she was abducted by five men.
Sunday Night investigated the story of Anita Cobby in 2017. Post continues after video.
She was bashed, tortured, forced to perform fellatio on all five of her attackers and raped repeatedly.
It was Travers who convinced the group to kill her, scared she’d recognise their faces if they let her go. He slit her throat to the point of almost separating her head from her body.
Her body was found with multiple stab wounds and barbed wire lacerations and all of her attackers were sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.
Greg Fisher’s crime was small fry in comparison to his bunk mate.
