“He’s very dangerous, but it’s too late. Tell that to the girl’s family.”
Do you feel like you have heard it all before? Time and time again.
Violent criminal. Should never have been freed.
Out on parole.
Freed after appeal. Sentence reduced to time served.
Evil walking our streets.
In sentiments echoing that made about Adrian Bayley, the violent criminal who killed Jill Meagher we hear of another a convicted criminal who, despite concerns he was dangerous, was not in jail – instead free to kill schoolgirl Masa Vukotic
Yesterday Sean Price pleaded guilty to the murder of 17-year old Masa Vokotic near a reserve in Doncaster on March 17 last year.
Neighbours called triple-0 after they heard screaming, but Masa died in the arms of police after being stabbed 49 times in the upper body.
Police described the violent murder:
“The accused confronted the deceased on the footpath in the park. He grabbed the deceased and forced her into the bushes on the eastern side of the reserve, producing a large kitchen knife. The deceased screamed and the accused started stabbing her repeatedly.
“The accused then walked out of the bushes and saw a male walking a dog through the reserve. The male kept walking through the reserve and the accused went back into the bushes.
The accused then continued to stab the deceased … a total of 49 separate injuries were identified … the cause of death was stab injuries to the neck”.
Yesterday we heard of the bizarre rant that Price went on in court, about “conspiracies” and “sensationalism”. We heard that the Magistrate Charlie Rozencwajg had to ask if the sound to the video link could be turned off.
We heard that the murdered became agitated about “bullshit legal terminology.”
And we heard that in the court women cried at the testimony.
Today we hear of his history.
That Sean Price was a ‘timebomb’ of violence.
A man who had been given a lenient sentence for previous crimes.
