"Bloodstream was tested for drugs. Trying to find a link to any of the prior prior victims surprisingly investigators found an insane combination of sedatives in his system including knockback Mandrax Valium Liam Rohypnol and amital with these results. They were able to tie richards. Disappearance to both Alan Barnes and Mark Langley. No Oh trucks had been detected in Neil Moore system because of his body's mutilation but because of the wounds suffered by him police linked him to the crime spree and then there was Peter Stock Niff- whose body was to burn to find any evidence had suffered the same type of saw wounds as mirror. The police had finally finely leaned all of the crimes together. Five bodies five victims and now five families pushing for answers but now they had to find a suspect and what better place to start than with their biggest piece of evidence so far the drugs used to incapacitate at least three of the victims teams in the latter. Half of the nineteen seventies South Australia had begun regulating drugs such as mandrax also known as quay leads. They were becoming pretty notorious as date rape drugs throughout the world and the government decided that they should have a solid record on which people had them or for what purpose in October of nineteen eighty to a boy who will call. George had been picked up by a passing car George urge who was a teenage hitchhiker was enticed by the older strangers. Offer of a good time. He promised to know some girls in the area and they would be having a party that evening. George got into the car with a stranger who offered him a beer from a cooler in the back seat. Jorge happily accepted opted hoping that this good time would result in a story to be told later at the very least this stranger. A man with artificially dyed hair did did take George to a house where two girls were living. He didn't bother telling George that both of them were transsexuals. Transitioning from men to women. Just let them do do the talking one of the Trans Women began to seduce and Wu George promising a good time. The young man kept finding fresh beers being handed handed to him by the stranger that had driven him to the House and when George began to get sleepy he was offered a couple of pills called no does. At at this point Georgia's memory began to blur. You're remember going back with one of the women to have sex unaware that he was being Hoodwink and shortly thereafter lost consciousness business. He woke up the next day and was surprised to find himself at the home with extensive pain in his backside. George would go on to report the incident. The police in consented to analysis and tests police discovered a tyrannous Amos implying that he had been sexually assaulted and that there was a trace amounts of drugs in his system. Medical Examiners. Were quite sure that he had been dosed. With mandrakes Aka Mandy Randy's the resulted in him losing consciousness and passing out. He gave the police a description of the man that had picked him up but couldn't remember his name nor the names of the girls at the house he had been taken to or even exactly. Where was I just hate that? No there's nothing you can do with that because they're so close. Yeah unfortunately Georgia's story would remain buried under layers of mystery for close to a year then the discovery three of similar chemical agents. That had been used dose. George knockback mandrake namely appeared in the test results of Richard Kelvin. The A fifth murder victim to experience sexual assault before his death not attack the drug that had been found in the bloodstream of Alan Barnes was an over over the counter sleep agent and almost impossible to track but mandrakes that was a serious drug and police just needed to pull up records of who had prescriptions to find a match as they began to pour through the list of south Australian patients who had been prescribed man drags one name popped up in particular particular. I Bet I know who Bevan Spencer von Einem Bingo and the year since pulling Roger James from the Torrens River back in nineteen seventy two Bevan Spencer von Einem had lived a relatively mundane life at least from the outside looking in. He was now an accountant for supplies. Company edging closer to forty years old and he lived with his mother and a small house in northeastern eastern Adelaide. However it turns out that on the side of his everyday good old boy demeanor who endeared himself to his mother's older friends and played it nice at work he was a sexual sadist that liked to abduct drug sexually assault and occasionally murderer young men between the ages of thirteen and twenty five? Yeah totally sounds like normal thing to do ya. I mean sure when one look that Bevin von Einem they. I didn't see a monster very few violent offenders actually look like a monster. Most people saw man wasn't terrible looking. Despite having a very particular particular look his Chin was very large and his hair had then prematurely grank since he was sixteen years old he needed to frequent a hairdresser. A friend of his named Dennis saint-denis at least once a month in order to bring it back to the darkened side of his youth. One Word I've seen. I used to describe Bevan Spencer. Von Einem is soft. I think that's a pretty apt description of him because he looks exactly like what you'd imagine an accountant Um from the nineteen eighties to look like. Okay I've got a pretty good mental pitcher good and if you don't you can always look at our website. Bevin von Einem apparently suffered from insomnia and other sleep issues which had forced him to resort to late night alcohol fueled drives around Adelaide to comfort himself later. It resulted in him. Having prescriptions for multiple sleep agents such as man drax and Rohypnol. This is what put him on the map of police. Now investigating the high profile murder of Richard Kelvin. Police began to dig in further to investigate. Von Aina China and the allegations regarding him an anonymous caller who would later become known to detectives had called just two days after the murder of Alan Barnes. Alleging that von Einem was responsible when he'd been questioned about it he admitted to being gay and admitted to a prior relationship. When the Muir the second second victim then apparently after the discovery of the fourth victim Mark Langley's body Font Einem had been investigated again when it cropped popped up that he may or may not have sexually assaulted two young men down by the Torrens River in the preceding weeks? When questioned about Langley he denied nine any involvement but admitted that he had been in the area on the night in question and had been both drinking and driving? Police had a direct link between him and the crimes a prescription to mandrax the sedative that had been used to drug at least two of the victims investigators were now not only linking him to the sexual assault of teenage boy named George but also the murders of mark. Langley and Richard Kelvin. Police were now eager to question Ashton on Einem doing so. Surprisingly they questioned his whereabouts on the night of Richard Kelvin's disappearance and he quickly responded with an alibi that he'd been sick likely story Apparently he contracted the flu in the early weeks of June and had actually taken an entire week off of work to recover. Of course. This wasn't much of an alibi. Had All it just served as an admittance of having an excess of time mm to himself. He had a doctor's note but the appointment had been a quick one in which he was prescribed more drugs to sleep and recover during the same bout of questioning. He revealed to investigators that he had been prescribed. Man Drags for his insomnia which he also treated by driving around for countless hours during the night and drinking he also spilled that he had been prescribed Rohypnol. Rubies for short for police inquired if he'd consent to a search of his property not only at home but both of his vehicles he responded by telling the investigators that that he no longer owned two cars just the one his other vehicle afford Falcon had been sold just a month beforehand in June is also oh happened to be roughly a week after Richard Kelvin's body had been done in the Mount Crawford forest and he had gone through the effort of free painting the truck before selling it to a family friend. He had not repainted the entire car. Just the trunk. Suspicious officious win. Police inquired about his connections to victims. Von Einem had quick answers.

"Peter's fate would remain unknown over the next year at which point another victim would unwittingly unwittingly joined the fray mark. Langley was a young man athletic and good looking. He was eighteen and hardworking. It was Saturday Saturday. February twenty seven of nineteen eighty two and mark was attending the eighteenth birthday party of a friend of his in northeastern Adelaide. He had driven driven there with his family. Who attended the party with him but left with a couple of friends afterward to drive around the city mark was cruising around with his buddy E. N.? An NS girlfriend Paula. When an argument broke out at some point they park along the Torrens River on war memorial drive and the argument escalated needed to the point where mark decided to get out and walk off into the night? E and Paula drove off returning. Just a few minutes later. But by then Mark Wiscon- mark's family was obviously concerned. When the next day mark was still not home? They found the police that evening hoping that any trace of their son could be found but the police were stumped. Mark Langley's body was discovered in Adelaide but hills close to you mount lofty. This area was known as summer town and it had been nine days since mark disappeared. Mark Klingler was found wearing most of the clothes he had been wearing on the night he disappeared minus his undershirt and without the chain had been wearing which contained his Zodiac wreck sign which was cancer for those who are interested like the other victims. Police quickly learned a lot from Langley's body he had been killed elsewhere and then transported to his dumping ground afterward implying that the killer had a base of operations also like the other victims Langley. We showed the same cause of death. Blood loss from an anal injury caused by an unknown item. He had also been washed before being dumbed. Just like Alan Barnes had been however unlike the other victims Mark Langley's bodies showed an odd sign of surgical precision precision a few inches above his grind and below his navel. There was a small surgical scar that had been sealed. Shut with staples also a specific type of Johnson and Johnson surgical tape the area around. The scar had even been shaved away implying that this wasn't just an impromptu prompt form of torture but perhaps the actual work of a surgeon trying to fix a mistake medical examiners and police began to theorize is about the rationale for the surgical scar and the most plausible explanation is one of the worst as far as mental images are concerned And I'm so sorry to say this. But that theory was that whatever item had been used to sexually assault mark with had gotten caught up in his intestines requiring a quick surgical reaction on behalf of the killer to retrieve the item because Mark's body had been dumped in the Australian summer months February and was exposed to the intense heat of the outback son. The exposed skin of his face and neck had already begun onto wither away. However this led police think that he had been killed shortly after his abduction meaning that he had probably been sitting out in the Wilderness for about a week week before his discovery? Just like Neil Mirror. Whoever had taken him had killed him and dumped him pretty quickly within a matter of a day or two and while police began to investigate? Who might be responsible? Medical Examiner's tested the system of Mark Langley and made a pretty vital discovering the existence of drugs in his system. As you recall the chemical chloride hydrate was found in the system of Alan Barnes earns and he had an above average level of alcohol in his system. Roughly four times the legal limit which was incredibly high for a teenager. However windhill mirrors body was discovered the internal organs had been removed and were missing meaning? The police weren't able to test his blood for any drugs with Mark Langley. Medical Examiner's discovered the drug mandrax in a system referred to as Randy Mandy among perverts and other deviants hence man tracks was a sedative that had just recently become popular worldwide with the branding quay lude this popularity brought up with it a poor reputation however by the late nineteen seventies mandrax had become a regulated prescription drug throughout Australia the emergence of mandrakes lead would become interesting later on but at this point in the investigation. The police were still struggling to connect all the dots just a few months after Mark Langley was found in June of nineteen eighty. Two fourteen year old. Peter Stock Nef's family would get some sort of resolution solution a farmer who lived nearby Middle Beach and two wells towns. Roughly an hour north of Adelaide had been cleansing. His farmland during the winter months wants. This meant doing away with a large swaths of land in a prescribed. Burn to prepare for the upcoming spring months as the farmers land burned. So did the remains of Peter Stoke math after doing away with his old crops the farmer was looking over his land when he came across the now charred remains of young Peter. He contacted the police and when they looked over the burned a corpse. They quickly came to the realization that it was Peter Sadly almost all evidence that may have been recovered. His body were now gone. Police and medical examiners wouldn't be able to identify his cause of death ed or even find out approximately when he had been killed. The only piece of evidence that police were able to uncover from his body was the knowledge that that just like meal mirror. His body had been cut into parts with a saw. The body hadn't been cut up exactly like Neil mirrors but the emmys were able twenty five points in the bones above his knees and along his back where I saw had carved into his body. Needless to say over the past few months the investigation had become a new beast entirely the body count had doubled the trial of Dr Peter. Mill House had been concluded for years at at this point and with his acquittal. The police were nowhere closer.

"Adelaide has the unfortunate reputation of being involved in some of the country's most infamous crimes like the snow town murders The abduction of the Beaumont children and the true wrote murders another of the South Australian capital's most notorious and horrific crimes astill semi unsolved. Today were going deep into the family. Murders in the nineteen sixties as in nineteen seventies. Adelaide was going through what most call a cultural renaissance. A city that was once known for its conservative. Beliefs was falling prey. Great to the Hippie movement free loves drugs and all that fun stuff because of this wave of progressive thought the nineteen seventies solved many more homosexuals sexual become comfortable in their skin. They began to embrace their sexuality. Even though it was still technically illegal under Australian law this this reached a boiling point. When in nineteen seventy two? Two men were thrown into the torrens river members of the city's vice squad just the police unit primarily aimed at targeting drug users and vendors of moral laws were tasked with rooting out members of the LGBTQ community. They believe it or not. This was actually a practice of southern Australia's law enforcement most of the time instead of actually arresting game in for their perceived crimes. They would rough them up again. Sometimes people are just literally the worst. I couldn't agree more. I say it almost every ups. It's true it is. We read about the worst people people. Yup they are just the worst. Yep George Duncan and Roger James were two men had been picked up by the vice squad on this evening of May ten instead of facing any charges for being gay. The handful of police officers present decided that the best course of action would be to throw both men into the nearby torrens river itself. Both men hit the water but unfortunately one did not come out alive. George urged Dunkin would drown in the river that evening and the other Roger James would escape the torrens with a broken ankle while the members of the vice squad began to panic. Panic and news cameras rushed to capture video of Duncan's body being pulled from the river Roger. James was helped out of the water by a stranger. The Stranger's name name was as far as the man belonged to Bevan Spencer. Von Einem One item helped James from the water and actually drove him to the nearby Royal Adelaide Hospital now. The story would become historic in more ways than one. The death of George Duncan would serve serve as a catalyst ultimately leading to repeal of southern Australia's harsh anti homosexuality laws homosexuality would become decriminalized in South Australia in nineteen seventy five with the passing of the Criminal Law Amendment Act becoming the first Australian state or territory to do so interesting little history factual had no idea. Yeah however this evening would also see the name Bevan Spencer von Einem. I scratched into the history books. He had been present for this dark moment in Australia history but he would go on to add many more miserable chapters of his own following the decriminalization of homosexuality in nineteen seventy five Adelaide continued its ascent of progressive ideals uh the lgbt community began to finally embrace their identities no longer having to hide the shame of their sexuality under the threat of imprisonment or police harassment harassment. This saw the creation of gay clubs such as the Mars Bar along with other bars and nightlife scenes where the LGBT community were. Welcome such as has the Duke of York or bugging hen arms also known as the buck Alan Barnes was seventeen year old with a youthful good looking appearance. I and a carefree fun loving attitude. He lived with his parents. Both English immigrants and Salisbury a northern suburb of Adelaide. His mother other Judy described him as being incredibly witty cheeky even he was quick on his feet and fabulously funny Allen was entering a phase as of life where he was experimenting with drugs and pushing boundaries. Trying to figure out who he was on Saturday. June sixteenth nineteen seventy eighty nine. Allan spent the night at a friend's house what the two were up to. As really anyone's guess but rumors and theories have cropped up in the decade since witnesses Nisa recall seeing them at some of the local hotspots such as the bars and clubs. I previously mentioned on Sunday June Seventeenth Allen and miss. Bren woke up and tried their luck at hitchhiking home. They were trying to hitch a ride on Grand Junction road before realizing that both of them were going to have no no luck together. I mean honestly who would have picked up two men entrusted that instead of like over one. Yes totally yeah. So Alan's friend headed back home figuring that Allen would be okay. Grand Junction road was always busy and surely he would get picked up sadly that I was the last time anyone saw Alan alive. Alan didn't return home that Sunday and Monday morning. His parents hadn't seen in him in a matter of days at that time they felt that it was time to contact. The police. Allen was nearly an adult but even this was a bit drastic stick for him he never disappeared before so. This was a cause for concern. Alan's friend told police the story that they'd been hanging out together her throughout Saturday in the first part of Sunday but that they had split up allen was supposed to find a ride back home and tried hitchhiking hoping that someone was traveling north near his. Family's home witnesses remembered seeing Alan on Grand Junction road that Sunday but one witness recalled something very disconcerting. This witness told police they saw Alan get into a vehicle. They remember the vehicle as looking like a white sedan which may have been a holden pictures on our website and that there were a couple of occupants inside the car other than the driver for the next week police police would have to chew on that bit of Information and unfortunately the resolution they'd get the following weekend would be hard to swallow for everyone involved in the following Sunday June twenty fourth a couple was hiking up in the area known as Adelaide foothills just east of Adelaide. The area is well known to southern Australians and serves as primary destination for day. Hikers Campers these two hikers were right next to the South Para Reservoir when they noticed something on the ground. Whatever it was it looked like a body but was somehow twisted and contorted an in in human nature? Police were called and before long Allen's father and grandfather found themselves on their way to identify the body as their teenage relative. The news was heartbreaking. The Barnes family had been bracing themselves for the worst but this was confirmation of those fears Allen had been murdered and the extent of his injuries would reveal that he suffered a horrible fate beforehand. When police arrived at the scene? They made the immediate assumption option that whoever had tried to dump the body of Alan bards had failed in some way. The bridge up above had clearing of about a meter meaning that whoever had tried to catapult Allen into the water below had missed the mark his body had fallen into the dirt below but had twisted and contorted in such a way that if he was still alive it would have surely resulted in death or serious injury. However the Adelaide Medical Examiners would come to the conclusion that Alan had died at least a day or two before being dumped near the South Para Reservoir and has cause of death is where the story it begins to take a drastically dark turn? Police believe that Alan had been held for days tortured and beaten by a sexual sadist. They identified his cause of death. As blood loss from an anal injury caused by an item that would have torn apart his insides. And what's more is that. The medical examiner's also found trace amounts of chloride hydrate in his bloodstream leading the police to believe that he had been drugged hoped. They quickly inferred that the drug knocked Tek which was a non-prescription pharmaceutical used to aid. People with sleep issues had been given to Allen some time before his death whether it was in a lace drink was a serious question for them because they also discovered alcohol in his bloodstream. Making making it a real possibility that Allan had been given a Mickey side. Now because I never heard the word Mickey outside of the song or Disney. I did some research research. Mickey Finn or Mickey is a drug that someone secretly puts into a drink in order to render the drinker unconscious. The phrase slipping Mickey Mickey seems to have originated sometime in the eighteen nineties. Taken from the name of a bartender at the lone star Saloon and Palm Garden in Chicago at the turn the last century is establishment was pretty sketchy and reportedly he slipped Mickey Finn's into customers drinks in order.
