This is the last of a two-part interview with Brian "The Skull" Murphy. I interviewed him when writing Billy "The Texan" Longley's biography in 2004. Murph talks about the Pat Shannon trial, giving evidence against Billy in court and the company they set up called "Industrial Mediation".
The former Victoria Police Detective Sergeant had a fearsome reputation with police and the criminal world. He was the recipient of a Valour Award, charged and acquitted of a homicide and falsely accused of an underworld hit.
At 90 years of age, Brian sadly passed away on the 25th of April 2023 surrounded by his family who he adored. Vale Brian "The Skull" Murphy.
