FACTFILE

 

October 1983, Murray had offered Mitchell Elgar a job  He picked Elgar up in a van, also in the van were Murray's 3 friends, Michael Bailey, John Bannister and Michael Howe.

Peter Murray told his 3 friends that Elgar was a grass and that he needed to be punished.

Mitchell Elgar was badly beaten and whipped with tree branches, then Murray persuaded the other men to sexually abuse Elgar, they then burnt his genitals with a cigarette lighter.

Elgar was then kicked in the head until he was unconscious, Michael Bailey then strangled him to death.

 

The next day Martin Porrit, an old school friend of Michael Bailey, was persuaded by Bailey to go with the group of men to the same location, where he was beaten unconscious.

Murray then got Howe and Bannister to strangle him to death with bootlaces, as Bailey had committed the previous murder.

 

The next day the gang had a third victim, John Redfern had been induced, by the offer of a job, and made his own way to the tragic spot on his motorcycle.

He managed to escaped on his bike, after becoming convinced that the others were plotting something.

 

The following day, Murray and Bailey were arrested for purse snatching, and while being questioned by police, Bailey suddenly confessed to the killings.

 

 

January 1985, The 3 men went on trial.
