Sorry - couldn't help the alliteration
There a trial underway in Melbourne where the Crown case revolves around post-mortem mutilation of two women. http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2004/07/26/1090693897024.html?from=storylhs#
The accused has been found guilty of one murder and is being linked to another by the "signature" of breasts being removed.

Will provide any further updates of interest.

Hi Neale,

Very (disturbing but) interesting stuff. I hadnít come across your post until now. Are there any updates?

I have found another case of a mutilating killer in Australia. This was in the early 1960ís. You can find it here: http://www.crimelibrary.com/serial_killers/weird/macdonald/index_1.html?sect=2. Although he killed men, his case reminded me a lot of the Ripper case. Like in the Ripper case, thereís even a John McCarthy involved!

All the best,
Frank
