Australian True Crime
The 1998 Silk-Miller police murders: Jason Roberts found not guilty
Jason Roberts, 41 years old, was recently freed for the first time in twenty two years by the Supreme Court of Victoria. He was seventeen years old when two police officers, Sergeant Gary Silk and Senior Constable Rodney Miller were shot and murdered on Cochranes Road, Moorabbin, Victoria. Roberts was one of two who were convicted of the murders all those years ago. It's a very infamous case in Australia, and a very complicated one. We are joined today by Adam Cooper, journalist at The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald, who is here to help us break down the jury's acquittal of Jason Roberts.
