Hurley Awards for Outstanding Press Photography

86 year old Arthur Stanley Brown was arrested and ordered to stand trial in Townsville for the brutal murder of the Mackay sisters, Judith (7) and Susan (5) 29 years previously. The photo of Brown and his wife Charlotte was taken during a break in proceedings from outside the court. All charges were dropped due to Brown’s deteriorating state of health. He died a year later and was never found guilty of the murders.
