Thanks for looking ZeboI was in the State Library today and had a look at the Advertiser around 27 August 1980 (as Kurve suggested earlier.) Everyone should have been busy watching (from a safe distance) the Millhouse trial for Neil Muir unfold, but it was adjourned on 19 August because the judge had a heart-attack. It did not recommence until 2 September.
If anyone went missing at that time, it wouldn't have been reported (eg Peter S wasn't reported as missing anytime near his disappearance in 1981). There was a dead 21yo man in Rosina St (off Hindley Street) on the 24th, suspected drug overdose (no details beyond that).
I had a arts teacher at Paralowie Tech in the late 70's that fit's that description and name to a tee. Miss Vidavich, wore all black, long black hair, bit of a looker from memory Rumour's going around that some of the older students were enjoying a bit of extra study time aswell
I don't think that he was "delivering"...BVE was/is obviously obsessed with young men/boys and didn't abduct, drug, rape (and murder) them by someone's orders. I am sure he did it because of his own deviant sexual appetite. Others were "invited", helped him, planned actions or "shared" with him. I don't see him as a procurer per se. A great number of boys was solely abused by him and not by others, which means he did it for himself, this was his "obsession".The delivery boy who took a piece of the action maybe.
I can see him being the delivery boy for some of the legal/medical/business types, but with the bottom tier transgender, drug addled, share house types he was definitely the top dog.
Yes, this "deadly scenario" is completely unrealistic. I can't believe that this psychiatrist was actually telling her that "maybe her life was saved because of the security's decision". Her third visit was cancelled because BVE simply didn't want to speak to her and removed her from his visitor's list. He's not the type to kill someone - especially not a mature woman - in the heat of the moment because of something she said.Listened to Meshel Lauries podcast Australian True Crime with Debi Marshall on her new book
So much mayo
' I feared for my life when someone told me BVE could easily snap my neck before the guards could stop him' - followed by 'BVE spends his day in the Old Persons unit and complains of heart disease , diabetes and Liver troubles'
Which BVE is it Deb? The one who can kill or the frail old man?
Though I do think there was 1 nugget when she got Lewis Turtur to admit that '' up to half a dozen'' - yet LT knew BVE had up to 200 victims of drug rape
Vivian Vidulich Was the teacher at PAH. She had long dark hair and was a very colourful vibrant woman. She lived around the Fulham Gardens area. I have no idea whether she is the woman referred to in the book though.
She isn't directly involved. It has been said that she knew that Denis St Denis cut Richard Kelvin's hair while he was being held at a unit. She allegedly also knew that several people visited the unit. She could of course have just been repeating rumours she had heard. Just another name that has come up on the search for information.Could be. I always remember her With very long hair, but that was in the late 70s and early 80s.
How is she potentially linked with the murders?
