Bloodstain - The Vanishing of Peter Falconio - Richard Shears ... communities, Bloodstain is the most in-depth analysis of the Falconio trial. Richard Shears is the only journalist who has interviewed the parents of Brad Murdoch, the South Australian drug-runner acused of Falconio's murder. Before the trial Shears studied the crime scene with local aboriginal trackers and helped highlight the glaring contradictions in the court's evidence. He was also uniquely privy to police reports and witnesses' statements in the build up to the trial. Bloodstain reveals the changing testimony of key witnesses, Joanne Lees' secret affair before Falconio's disappearance, the mystery of the bloodstains and the conflicting evidence upon which the whole trial was based.
