Smoking guns: two police murdered, two suspects, one conviction.
When Sergeant Gary Silk and Senior Constable Rod Miller pulled over a blue Hyundai in Moorabbin in 1998 while on armed robbery stake-out duty they had no inkling they were about to be ambushed. Their murders sparked a two year investigation and the conviction of two men.
One Jason Roberts, who always maintained his innocence, was eventually granted a retrial and in 2022 was acquitted.
The murders, the investigation and the legal aftermath is one of the most controversial and tragic cases in Australia's history.
