A Fathers Journey – How a Terrible Tragedy
Sparked Justice & Social Reform.
I am honored and moved to have an incredible man in the studio today.
One night in 1994 in the upper middle class suburb of Jannali in Sydney, Australia, a tragedy was unfolding.
An 18 Year old University Student who was working in a Pizza Restaurant to help pay his way through College, was callously shot dead during a robbery gone wrong. Michael Marslew was trying to warn his colleagues at the time.
6 Months after the event, four young men were arrested and later convicted of his murder.
Later, an extraordinary event occurred. For the first time those responsible and convicted of a murder, met face to face in the same room with the parents, family and friends of Michael Marslew.
I have with me today Ken Marslew, the father of Michael Marslew.
Join me as Ken takes us on a roller coaster of emotions as he tells us of the effect of his sons murder and his fight for social & justice reform.
