Sydney’s Infamous 'Granny Killer'

It’s the first day of Autumn, 1989, in an affluent Sydney suburb.

Mosman is on the lower north shore and known for being comfortable and safe, a short distance from Taronga Zoo and Balmoral Beach.

An 82 year old woman named Gwendoline Mitchell Hill is walking down military Rd towards her apartment in the late afternoon.

She doesn’t know a man has spotted her, concocting a plan of what to do next.

She won’t make it inside.

And she will be the first known victim of a vicious predator who will ravage the streets of Mosman, Lane Cove and Belrose for the next 12 months.
