This week on The Crime Couch I feature the first of a two-part historical interview with Brian "The Skull" Murphy. I interviewed the infamous former Victoria Police Detective Sergeant in 2004 when writing the biography of Billy "The Texan" Longley.
From his loungeroom, Brian opened up about the Painters and Dockers, when he first met The Texan and his suspension in 1971. He was the recipient of a Valour Award, charged and acquitted of a homicide, and falsely accused of an underworld hit. Sadly, the living legend passed away on the 25 of April 2023. Vale Brian "The Skull" Murphy.
