Unfortunately my computer system has become weak and can no longer stand the strain I place upon it.

In order to get my systems up and running again, I have invested $6k in a new computer system which is currently being built and I would expect that a lot of the notices I place on the system, will be devoid of a lot of information that I usually include; until my new system arrives and my databases and photos are transferred across.

This might not be completed until late February 2022.

Man shot in head in Cabramatta ambush

A man ambushed in his car and shot in the head in western Sydney remained in a critical condition today.

The man was driving his car along Hughes Street, Cabramatta, at 2.45pm (AEST) yesterday when a person ran up to the car and fired shots at him, police said.

The 30-year-old was shot a number of times, including in the head.

A woman in the car was uninjured, Cabramatta Police Superintendent Alan Becke said.

The man was treated at the scene by ambulance officers before being taken to an undisclosed hospital where he underwent surgery.

He was still in a critical condition today.

Police had spoken to witnesses and canvassed the area in search of the offender.

Investigators appealed for anyone who was in the vicinity of Hughes Street, or who might have witnessed the incident, to contact Cabramatta Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Man shot in head in Cabramatta ambush


 

Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 – 1995),

Wednesday 9 September 1987, page 10

Paroled man charged over strangle death

BOWRAL: A man on parole after serving a jail term for malicious assault was charged in Bowral Local Court yesterday with the murder of a 43-year old woman.

Mr Gregory Ronald Keaton, 32, of Moss Vale, is charged with murdering Ms Patricia Ann Murray at Moss Vale on Saturday.

Detective Sergeant Alan Becke told the court that Mr Keaton went to a hotel last Friday and, after midnight, followed the woman to her home.

An argument developed between the two because he believed Ms Murray was going to report him and his de-facto wife to the Housing Commission and Department of Social Security.

Sergeant Becke said that during the argument Mr Keaton strangled Ms Murray.

It was understood Ms Murray had said that Mr Keaton, though employed, was receiving unemployment benefits and that his de-facto wife was receiving a single-parent benefit.

Mr Keaton was remanded in custody to appear in Moss Vale Local Court on Monday.

The court had been told that Mr Keaton was on parole, having been convicted in 1982 of malicious assault inflicting actual bodily harm to have sexual intercourse.

His de-facto wife and two of her five children were in court.

Kev is remembered, by his many work mates, as having NSW Number plates  KEV-000 displayed on his vehicle(s) – an old yellow Chrysler then a gold Holden Statesman at Hurstville.

He is also remembered as being a great bloke by his work mates.

He has been highly respect by all that have worked with him and is being greatly missed by his wife, children, grand children, sister & brother-in-law.

If everyone had Kevin’s integrity and loved and cared for their family and friends as Kevin did, the world would be a much better place.

After leaving the Northern Territory Police Force, due to injuries sustained from a Police Motor Cycle MVA, Ray moved to Fairy Meadow and later moved to Thirroul where he and his wife made their family home.
Ray had, at some stage, joined the’ Brown Bombers ‘, who were employed by the NSWPF as Parking Patrol Officers.
A change of uniform in the 1980’s saw Parking Patrol Officers, known by the nickname of ‘Brown Bombers’ ( because of the colour of their uniform ), become known as ‘Grey Ghosts’ because the colour was changed from Brown to a light Grey.
Ray was Stationed at Wollongong ( N.S.W. ) and during his stint at Wollongong, was known far and wide as a nice bloke who wasn’t too hard on those parking offenders ( if you happened to be at your car at the right time of course ).
Ray was seriously assaulted by an irate parking offender in Corrimal St, Wollongong, one day.  So much so that Ray ended up in Wollongong Hospital due to his injuries.
Ray was a practical joker too.  He just loved putting a Parking envelope under your wiper blade ( with nothing inside the envelope )  just because he knew it was your car.
Ray stay at Wollongong Police Station until he retired in August 1991 – mainly due to the fact that at this time in the NSW Police History, local councils were attempting ( and were successful ) as taking over the duties of Parking Patrol Officers.
Some left the employ of NSWPF and went over to the Councils whereas others, like Ray, were old enough to take Retirement.
