Jane Wells was trapped in a nightmare. The man she married was an abusive, philandering maniac. The courts knew this, but because of a Kentucky law that.
Up until that point, it had been difficult for Gwynne to get a sense of her. Her original witness statement, taken on the night of the crime, had been lost, and subsequent statements lacked some clarity. Gwynne always loved the British cop show The Bill. It got harder after that. The interview with a wary Lees stretched on for the best part of a day. Gwynne tackled it head on by acknowledging the inadequacies in the case.
She stressed that she was there to make amends, to hear Lees out on her own turf, in her own time. Slowly, Lees warmed up and she began to recount her memories of the attack. It took energy to revisit the violence and Gwynne had great respect for her courage. Gwynne had seen plenty of families racked by grief. She knew how it would play out before she knocked on the door.
It took her an hour. The police officer sat with the family in their lounge room, talking, listening and drinking a lot of tea. The words hung in the quiet of the room and Gwynne wondered whether she had promised too much. Then, Joan Falconio got up and hugged her. When I left Huddersfield that day, the pressure on me and the weight on me was enormous — the hope they had and the way they looked at me, like I was the one that was going to change things for them.
This weight would bury Gwynne at times, forcing her to immerse herself in the case over and over again, to live and breathe the detail.

She said he made her go up to the trucks and make contact with the truck drivers and that he actually shot and killed one of the truck drivers and they were on the run for that.

But was it enough to put him behind bars? Gwynne needed to be sure that they had found everything. I think it was a trophy but no one will ever know.
Months later, when the hair tie was presented as evidence in the trial, it clearly made an impression on Murdoch. That was the nail in his coffin. On 13 December , four and a half years after he stopped the Kombi near Barrow Creek, Murdoch was convicted of the murder of Peter Falconio and the assault and abduction of Joanne Lees. He was given a mandatory life sentence with a minimum year non-parole period. Colleen Gwynne sat in the front row when the jury handed down their guilty verdict. After all those years of pursuit, the closure was overwhelming.
She scanned the courtroom for the woman she embraced back in Huddersfield. The emotion was overwhelming and I had to find somewhere I could just cry.
