The name Anita Cobby is etched into Australia's collective consciousness.
It evokes the black-and-white image that was all over news media; the young, smiling face, gleaming teeth, the beauty pageant sash slung across her shoulder and the tiara resting on top of her brown curls.
Sadly, it also evokes the chilling details of the crime that ended her life.
The 26-year-old was abducted by a group of five men in February 1986, beaten, raped and left to die. It was an attack so shockingly savage that the day it hit the headlines is often described as the day that Australia lost its innocence.
Three years earlier, another Australian woman met a similar fate. Yet few have ever heard her name.
The murder of Patricia Carlton.
Patricia Carlton, an Indigenous woman who lived in the rural Queensland city of Mount Isa, was drinking with friends at a local pub the afternoon that she was attacked.
At 5:40 the following morning — October 1, 1983 — police doing their usual patrol found the 24-year-old unconscious in the carpark behind the Mount Isa hotel. She'd been beaten with a metal pole, and a large stone had been inserted into her genitals.
Patricia was rushed to hospital but never regained consciousness. She died that evening.
Police moved quickly. By that afternoon they'd questioned Patricia's boyfriend, 22-year-old Indigenous man Kelvin Condren, and extracted a confession that he was responsible for the assault.
He was charged with grievous bodily harm and just hours later, once Patricia had passed, with murder.
Kelvin was convicted in August 15, 1984, and sentenced to life behind bars.
As it would later emerge, he was completely innocent.
"I just went along with it to stop the pressure."
The case compiled against Kelvin Condren by Queensland Police hinged on his confession and witness testimony of three of his friends, who reported being present at the scene of the attack on Patricia.
There was no physical evidence tying Kelvin to the crime. No blood on his clothes or evidence tying him to the scene.
